How to Get Beer Out of Carpet – Method # 1

  1. Using paper towels or a towel, soak up as much of the beer stain as you can, as quickly as you can. This will prevent the beer from being absorbed into the carpet.
  2. Combine 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of liquid dishwashing detergent with 2 cups of warm water.
  3. Using a sponge that’s soaked in this solution, work from the outside of the stain in, blotting the affected area of the carpet. The beer stain should begin to gradually disappear.
  4. To remove any remaining vinegar, sponge the carpet with cold water and pat dry using a towel.

  3. Dry with a clean towel after letting the solution sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Vacuum the carpet to remove any remaining residue.

Finally, you can try this third do-it-yourself method to keep your carpet beer-stain free.

  1. After soaking up any remaining liquid using a clean towel, take a fair amount of baking soda and sprinkle it directly on the beer stain. You’ll want to make sure the entire surface area of the beer stain is covered.
  2. Leave the baking soda to sit on top of the beer stain for 24 hours. This will help soak up any remaining smell that the beer may leave behind. 4. After 24 hours, vacuum up the baking soda. The beer stain should no longer be visible.
