Putting plants inside the home can be a very welcome change from the usual modern environment that most people have around their house. Instead of using home accessories and furnishings to beautify the home, having some greenery can add a unique and beautiful element that will certainly make your home’s interior more appealing.
Taking care of plants though can be somewhat challenging since you would have to maintain them so that they continue to grow beautifully. Using fertilizer is one way that you can help maintain the plants inside your home but you should be careful not to accidentally spill some of it on your beautiful carpet. This can be very problematic since it will likely cause an ugly stain to develop on your carpet.
Cleaning up this kind of mess can be really tough for carpet owners, especially those who are not that experienced in cleaning tough stains. To help you out, I have outlined a really simple guide that you can follow to effectively remove the fertilizer stains on your carpet quickly and easily.
• Quickly get a spoon or a dull knife and start to scoop up the spilled fertilizer on your carpet. Remember to do this right away so that you can prevent the spill to cause a major stain that will be hard to remove. Also, make sure that you are careful in doing this since you never want to cause the spill to spread accidentally to other portions of the carpet.
• Grab some dish washing liquid and mix one teaspoon of it with one cup of warm water. The dish washing liquid is a really helpful item that can help you remove any kind of stain that the fertilizer spill has likely made. Place the mixture inside an empty container and then proceed to the next step.
• Carefully apply a small amount of the cleaning solution you have made onto the stain on your carpet. Remember not to use too much as this won’t help remove the stain any further. It can actually have a negative effect since it can result in a lot of residue possible getting left behind on the carpet.
• After you have applied the cleaning solution, use a clean white cloth and then blot the fertilizer stain repeatedly. It will not be removed quickly but pretty soon it will be gone as long as you just continue to blot the stain.
• Finish the task by rinsing the area you cleaned with some clean water and then dry it thoroughly using some towels. This is to get rid of cleaning solution residue that could harm your carpet over time.
