Our rug cleaning team will be always glad to help you with finding the best way to remove rug stains via phone calls, emails, Facebook, and Google My Business messages.

  1. Use a sponge

    Use a sponge or clean terry cloth damped with cooled water and apply light strokes, moving from the outside of the soup stain until it is fading. 

  2. Apply a wet spotter and just a few drops of white vinegar. Cover the stained area with a sponge dampened with the wet spotter. Let it sit as long as the stain is still there.

    Change the sponge as it picks up the liquid a bit at a time. Meanwhile, always make sure to keep the area and your sponge wet, so you will be able to remove the soup stain out of the rug with less effort.

  3. Rinse and dry the rug

    After using the sponge and wet spotter to remove soup stain from your precious rug, rinse the stained area with cooled water and let it dry on both sides.

    Finally, let it airdry or sprinkle some baking soda on it to make sure no moisture has remained inside the rug.
