Removing Grass Stains From Carpet - A Video

Below is a video explaining how to remove grass stains from carpet.

What I like about this video is that it really shows the slow and painstaking stain removal techniques that are sometimes needed to get out stains.

In the video the professional carpet cleaner explains:

1. Remove all loose debris and grass from the carpet first, before attempting stain removal.

I thought it was interesting that she suggested to use the upholstery cleaning tool for your vacuum, not the regular vacuum itself, because the beater brush on the vacuum could grind the grass stain in further.

Once she said that it made complete sense, but I'm not sure I would have thought of that on my own.

2. Use a white towel or cloth dipped in ice cold water, and blot at the grass stain in the carpet (watch the video for a good look at the blotting technique, which is different than scrubbing), and keep doing this until no more green grass color transfers from the carpet stain onto the cloth.

She explains that she uses this method for grass stain removal from carpet first because it is the least aggressive.

3. Next, use a pH neutral spot remover on the grass stained area, which will hopefully remove most or all of the stain.

She suggested using a pH neutral cleaning solution so that it did not leave behind a soapy residue, which she explains can attract dirt.

I hope this video was helpful.
