Removing Coffee Stains From Carpet: Tips & Home Remedies

by Taylor

Below I've gathered tips for removing coffee stains from carpet, focusing on home remedies instead of using specific commercial carpet cleaning products.

I know you can use such cleaners, and if you're interested in which ones are the best check out my coffee stain remover recommendations. But this page of the site is meant for those of us who love to get these spots and spills out ourselves, with items we've got on hand, at home.

As with many things in life, there is no one "right" way to remove these stains, but instead many methods that can work. Below I've gathered tips, mainly videos from around the web, giving suggestions for you to use.

Since there are many good stain removal recipes out there, I know I haven't listed them all, so if you've successfully removed such a carpet stain with a home remedy, please share your tip with me here for how you did it, and I'll add it to this page.

In addition, don't forget you can always check out my article on how to remove coffee from many surfaces here, for yet another possible method you can try.

So, check out these videos and ideas below, and I hope they help you remove the accidental spill you've suffered on your rug or carpeting.

Getting Rid Of Coffee Stains On Your Carpet

The video below shows you a good technique for blotting your carpet to remove coffee stains on your carpet.

The lady in the video is a professional carpet cleaner, so she shows you how to deal with the spill right away.

However, she does not show you any techniques for removing any discoloration left behind in your carpet after you have blotted the stain.

Instead, she suggests only using cold water to blot at the stain, and then to call a carpet cleaning professional.

If you don't want to call a professional you can check out my tips for how to remove coffee stains, or keep reading below for more tips, ideas and home remedies.

Carpet Coffee Stain Removal - Tips And Video

Below is a another video, and there are several things I really like about it, which include:

1. That the video makes a distinction between when you have spilled black coffee, coffee with cream in it, or coffee with sugar in it.

This may, at first, seem like an arbitrary distinction, but when you begin to combine ingredients like cream and sugar into the coffee, it becomes a "combination stain."

A combination stain generally takes additional steps to remove, because you have to remove all parts of the stain, and it uses different steps.

Further, you have to be careful not to set one part of the stain while treating another part of it.

2. I like that the video emphasizes not saturating the carpet fibers too much.

This is one of the most common mistakes in carpet stain removal, and it can cause mildew in the carpet if the area does not dry out enough, and also deterioration of the carpet backing and pad.

3. Finally, I like how the video shows stain removal techniques that start with the least, to the most aggressive.

It is important to always try the gentlest method first, and only go to the harsher treatments if needed.

Basically, the video suggests to first try getting as much of the spill as possible just using warm water in a spray bottle, and only to the extent that you need to use something else, try some mild carpet shampoo or a solution using dish soap to remove the stain.
