Glue is one exception to timeliness in regards to your reaction time. In other words, not all hope is lost if the glue has started to dry to the rug.
However, if it is still adhesive when dried, it can collect more dirt over time, making it a bit more difficult to clean. So ideally you should get to the spill immediately to ensure complete removal of the stain.
Here are some simple steps you should follow in order to remove glue stain from the rug and restore its former beauty.
“Not all hope is lost if the glue has started to dry to the rug!”
First, if the glue is still not completely dried, you’re going to want to dab the area with a wet towel and remove all the wet mess you can.
After you’ve rid the area of as much wet glue as possible, you need to dampen the towel with warm water to make the dried-up glue softer.
Next, pour white vinegar on now softened contents. Ensure the really saturate the area in vinegar, then rub the vinegar into the rug for a few minutes.
Finally, after letting the vinegar sit for 15 minutes or so, take a towel with water and clean up the stain. It should remove fairly easily at this point. If not all the glue has been removed, repeat the process.
Another option if you don’t have white vinegar is dish soap. A similar process is repeated. However, you want to make sure not to scrub too hard to avoid pressing the stain deeper into the rug.
