What To Do When This Potted Plant Falls Over On Your Carpet
Removing dirt and mud stains from carpet can be difficult, especially if you start with the wrong stain removal techniques.
That is why I really like looking at videos -- so I can see what they are doing and watch and learn from the techniques provided.
This video below is actually in two parts, and explains a technique for removing dirt stains from carpet, specifically from a potted plant that fell over.
In such a situation the dirt is actually moist, so really it is partially removing dirt, and partially mud.
The first part of the video discusses how to remove the dirt stain from the carpet.
The most important piece of information I took away from this part of the video is that you don't want to rub the dirt into the carpet further, and you don't want to make any dry dirt into mud, because that will make it harder to remove.
The second part of the video then explains what to do with the mud that is left on the carpet after removing the dry dirt that was not ground into the carpet.
I like how she shows the technique for how to blot your carpet (not scrub) to remove as much of the mud stains as possible.
Unfortunately, the flaw of this second video, in my opinion, is that she does not provide any instructions for mud stain removal from the carpet if the blotting with plain water technique shown does not work.
Of course, she is a carpet cleaning professional, so she suggests calling in a carpet cleaner, which is a sensible thing to do.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
