The Blotting Technique

Always blot, never rub. This is the golden rule for managing stains. Rubbing drives the stain deeper into the carpet. Wet stains should blot up quickly from stain-resistant carpets. Dry or greasy stains will need a little more work. As soon as a stain strikes, grab a dry paper towel and blot around the edges of the stain and gradually move from the outside to the inside. After your first round drying the stain, get a new paper towel and repeat the process.

Materials you should always use to clean

Use white non-printed paper towels or cloth towels. Printed designs can transfer to your carpet and create another stain.

Check your warranties

Check your warranty. Make sure you check your warranty for any restrictions on cleaning products and always test products on a small spot that is out of the way or usually covered by furniture.
