How to Clean Spilled Milk on Carpet

Spilled milk on the carpet can leave very unpleasant stains and bad odour behind, if you don't take immediate actions to remove it. Luckily, cleaning spilled milk from the carpet won't be too difficult to do, if you know the proper methods and techniques to do it. Read on to find out what to do.

If you spilled milk on the carpet don't waste time and start cleaning it right away. Take out a stack of paper towels or regular clean towel and blot the spilled milk. Remove as much of the excessive liquid as possible before proceeding to the next phase of cleaning.

Take out one clean cloth or towel and dampen it slightly with cold water. Now scrub the area of the carpet where you spilled the milk to remove as much of the milk from the fibres as you can. Once you've done this, take out a clean dry cloth and wipe the area dry. Balham cleaners recommend to repeat the process several times until you are sure that there is no more milk left into the fabrics.

Now sprinkle some cornstarch over the area on which you spilled the milk. The cornstarch should absorb any remains of milk and make the spot to dry faster. Alternatively, you can use baking soda. After you've done that, let the cornstarch (or baking soda) to sit for at least half an hour before vacuum over the area. If there is any remaining stain on the carpet after you've done all that, you would have to change the tactics.

Balham cleaners suggest that you use this simple stain removing method. Squeeze lemon juice over the stain and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then clean the spot with clean damp cloth and sprinkle baking soda over the area. Leave overnight and vacuum the next day. The stain should be gone.
