How do you remove food coloring stain from carpet?

[ Food] coloring is dye that's safe to eat. Food companies use it to so their products look nice. If you spill food coloring on your carpeting, you basically just poured dye on it! Don't worry. You can try getting the stain out before hiring a professional cleaner. Here's how to get food coloring out of carpet: # Clean up any kind of stain in your carpet as soon as you notice it. The longer stains have to set in, the harder they are to get out. # Gently blot any excess spill with a paper towel. If there's a large amount of spill, you can use a wet vacuum to get up some of it. # Wet a dry stain with a little cool [ water]. Wait about a minute for the water to saturate the stain, and then blot gently with a paper towel. If the stain is coming out with just water, keep dampening and blotting until you get the stain out, or nothing more is coming out. # Make a solution of one tablespoon white vinegar, one tablespoon liquid hand dishwashing detergent and two cups (473 milliliters) of warm water. If your food coloring stain is red, use ammonia instead of vinegar [source: [ Goodhousekeeping]]. Pour some of this solution onto a clean, white cloth and sponge the stained carpet. Dab the carpet dry with a paper towel. Repeat until the stain is gone, or nothing more comes off. # Sponge any remaining stain alternately with a little rubbing alcohol and small amounts of warm water. Blot it dry after each time you wet it. # Moisten the stained areas with three percent hydrogen peroxide. Let the hydrogen peroxide stand for about an hour. Blot and repeat as necessary. # Pile a bunch of paper towels over the area when the stain is finally gone. Weigh down the paper towels with something heavy, like a stack of books. This will absorb all the moisture in about an hour. # Sprinkle a little carpet freshener on the dry carpet, to make your cleaned carpet smell nice [source: [ Goodhousekeeping], [ FabricLink], [ Hilton]].

How To Be Sensible With Stains Of Colored Food During Carpet Cleaning?

Despite of the cause of the problem, the first step to removing stains from carpet is to blot up as much of what is causing the stain as fast as possible. The next step is to treat the stained carpet with a cleaner that is suitable for the particular carpet fiber and the substance creating the staining. Water and a mild detergent will remove most stains, although other cleansers like vinegar, ammonia, or an off-the-shelf product may be more valuable in some cases. Food colorings are a type of stain and therefore can lastingly color fabrics and clothing. According to the guidelines for removal, if the coloring contains Red 3, it should first be broken down with an acid and then cleaned. As always, the sooner it is cleaned, the simple it will be to remove. Follow these steps to eliminate the stain.

Why is it difficult to remove old stains from carpets?

Once any material (wine, food, grease etc) has touched any fabric (carpet, upholstery, clothing etc) a stain begins to form. The trick of stain removal is to get to the stain as fast as possible, before it has time to set. For example, when wine falls onto your carpet much of the initial spill is picked up right away. If the homeowner chooses not to hire a professional cleaner, but instead leaves the stain alone, the wine will bond with the fabric. The stronger the bond, the harder the stain becomes to remove. Some things can prevent the stain from setting, like cleaning products. If you have a wine stain on an item of clothing, and you put the item of clothing into the dryer before the stain is removed, then the heat from the dryer will strengthen the chemical bond of the stain and make the stain harder to remove. One very important thing in stain prevention is to always blot, and never rub an area with a stain. Rubbing the stain, even if you're trying to remove it, will rub the stain into the fabric, and make it harder to remove. Time, heat, rubbing and improper stain removal will always make stains harder to remove.
