COIT’s Guide to Removing Grape Juice Stains from Carpet

Do grape juice stains on your carpet make you cringe? There’s something about removing grape juice stains that seems daunting. Maybe it’s the color that makes us positively sure that our fresh, plush carpet must be ruined.

Well, Coit is here to let you know that you need not panic. Removing grape juice stains is actually something you can do on your own, if you act quickly. With Coit’s do-it-yourself guide, you’ll learn how to remove grape juice stain from carpet by following the steps below.

How to Get Grape Juice Out of Carpet – Method # 1

Removing grape juice stains doesn’t have to be so bad. All you need is a sponge, some lemon juice and a brush with soft bristles.

  1. Blot up as much of the grape juice stain as possible using a wet sponge. It’s best to work your way from the outside of the stain towards the inside – that way you won’t spread the grape juice to other areas of the carpet.
  2. Pour a generous amount of lemon juice directly onto the stain. Blot the stain using a dry cloth.
  3. Use the brush to brush in more lemon juice.
  4. If you find that this method does not remove grape juice stain from carpet, try applying some white vinegar directly onto the stain.
  5. Repeat step 4 until the grape juice stain disappears.
  6. Follow up by using a spray in carpet foam cleaner to get rid of any grape juice residue.

How to Remove Grape Juice Stains – Method # 2

COIT offers you another way to remove grape juice stain from carpet. Check out how a little club soda can keep your carpet looking fresh.

  1. As soon as you discover the grape juice stain, blot as much of the excess liquid as you can, as fast as you can. You want to get rid of any liquid that hasn’t been absorbed into the carpet before you start the stain removal process.
  2. Wet a clean cloth with a generous amount of club soda. Press the cloth directly onto the stain (don’t rub the stain) to absorb the grape juice.
  3. Repeat as necessary until the stain is no longer visible.
  4. If you can still see the stain, pour a generous amount of salt directly onto the stain. Who knew that a little table salt could answer the question of how to remove grape juice stains?

How to Get Grape Juice Out of Carpet – Method # 3

  1. Combine one tablespoon of ammonia with two cups of warm water.
  2. Using a clean sponge, soak the sponge in this solution.
  3. Blot the grape juice stain directly until the stain begins to absorb.
  4. Sponge the stain with cold water to rinse, then blot dry with a clean cloth.
