Berry StainsThis carpet cleaning tip is for eliminating berry stains from your carpet or upholstery. Berry stains on carpet can be moderately difficult to remove. The key, as with all spots, is to clean it up as soon as it happens.

You’ll need a few things to clean berries out of your carpet: white cloth towels, white paper towels, and Heaven’s Best Spotter solution. You may also need a hydrogen peroxide solution that you can make from common products you may have around the house.

Begin by applying your Heaven’s Best Spotter using a damp towel. Leave for 3 to 5 minutes, then blot with a towel. Remember, blot — don’t rub.

If the stain is eliminated, finish with a water rinse, then blot dry and follow with a pad of weighted white paper towels or extract with a wet/dry vacuum. If possible, put a fan on the spot to aid in drying.

If the stain is not removed, continue by mixing a hydrogen peroxide cleaning solution. To make the hydrogen peroxide solution, mix 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide (3% solution commonly sold in drug stores) with 1 teaspoon of household ammonia. As with all cleaning products, you should test this solution on a small obscure area before using it to clean your carpet.

Apply the hydrogen peroxide and let stand for 2 to 3 hours under a weighted pad of clean white towels. Repeat application of hydrogen peroxide solution until removal is complete. Blot with weighted pad of paper towels and/or extract with a wet/dry vacuum. Apply undiluted white vinegar only after the stain has been completely removed.
