Not only you will have to interrupt your meal but you also have to put a lot of elbow grease to get rid of it. In this article we’ll show you a quick and efficient method of getting rid of mayonnaise stains.
Many cleaners in Kilburn that you take care of any spills right away and not let them set into the carpet’s fabrics.
First and most important part when taking care of a mayonnaise stain is to remove the excess mayonnaise, which will make your cleaning job afterwards much easier. This can be done easily with tablespoons or a dull knife. Just try to pick up as much of the bulb as you can without rubbing it into the carpet. It’s a tricky exercise but it will help a lot.
Next sprinkle some baking soda or cornstarch on the stained area. This will harden the almost liquid like substance and will make it much easier to remove. When the time is up take the vacuum cleaner and vacuum the residue with it. Apply some dry-cleaning solvent onto a clean cloth and start blotting the stain with it. The stain should transfer to the cleaning cloth. If you don’t see any improvement with this method take the bottle of dry-cleaning solvent and apply some directly to the stained area. Working it in with your fingers from outside to inside of the stain. Take a clean cloth and dab the stain again until it’s lifted up onto the clean cloth. When the stain is already gone spray some water on the affected area and keep dabbing to remove the leftover cleaning solution. Finally, dry the carpet with paper towels or a terry towel. The best way is to place several paper towels on the stain with something heavy on them. This will quicken the drying process and you’ll not have mould infestation risk.
