Spills take place during the daily laundry dash, particularly when kids get into the washing machine action. And bleach, that must-have for truly white whites, tends to make a fierce stain. You can, however, remove such blights from your carpet if you take appropriate steps swiftly.

Things Needed:

Rubber Or Latex Gloves
Mild Dishwashing Liquid
White Absorbent Cloths Or Paper Towels


  1. Put on rubber or latex gloves. Blot the excess bleach using a white absorbent cloth or paper towel.
  2. Blot-rinse with water.
  3. Carefully blot detergent solution of 1/4 tsp. mild dishwashing liquid and 1 cup (8 fl oz/250 ml) warm water onto the stain, with a clean cloth or paper towel. Work from the stain’s outside edge to the center.
  4. Allow the detergent to sit for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Repeat blotting using a clean white cloth until no more of the bleach transfers to the cloth and the bleach smell is almost gone.
  6. Rinse thoroughly using cold water.


  • In case the stain is old and has discolored the carpet, it is necessary to seek the help of a carpet professional.
  • Keep a spray water bottle as well as white rags or a roll of plain white paper towels readily available in your laundry room for future spills.
