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 overtime, 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 to follow in order to restore your rug to its former beauty.
“Not all hope is lost if the glue has started to dry to the rug!”
1. Equipment Needed
White Vinegar │ Warm Water │ Terry Cloth │ Mild dish detergent
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 in order to make the dried up glue softer.
Next, pour white vinegar on now softened contents. Make sure 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 in order to avoid pressing the stain deeper into the rug.
