Remove Shampoo From Carpet

Soap spills can quickly become sudsy unfortunate occurrences if not cleaned up adequately. Before letting a drop of water hit your discharge, observe the measures below. Surely make this clean up a task for spilled shampoo as easy and quick as possible.

Things Needed for Spilled Shampoo Removal:

Directions:

  1. Start by removing as much of the shampoo as possible BEFORE adding any water to the location. Use a bowl and spoon or dustpan to scrape the shampoo out of the surface.
  2. Apply pressure when you are scraping to eliminate as much of the shampoo as possible.
  3. After that, use a paper towel to blot the area. Soak up much of the remainder of the shampoo.
  4. Keep on blotting, using fresh paper towels as required, until they not any longer absorb any moisture.
  5. Right now, there should be small amounts of soap/shampoo left in the carpet.
  6. Work with a wet/dry vacuum to suction out any remaining shampoo that could have soaked further down into the carpet.
  7. Spray the area with a light coat of water.
  8. Use the wet/dry vacuum to pull the water and remaining shampoo out from the carpet.
  9. Proceed until no more shampoo is left.
  10. A little bit of suds are okay, but if they start to become overwhelming, sprinkle them with salt. The salt does away with the soap foam.
  11. As soon as all of the shampoos removed, blot the area using dry paper towels to remove any remaining moisture.
  12. Allow for the area to air dry.

Guidelines:

  • It is significant to remove as much of the shampoo as possible before adding water. The water will activate the soap and start to form suds.
  • In case no wet/dry vacuum is available, blot the area by using paper towels instead. You may want to opt to rent a carpet shampooer, and running it over.
