Honey, although very delicious, can create quite a mess, especially when it comes to dripping on your fabric and rug. It is difficult to remove because of its high viscosity and sticky nature. This golden fluid is a combination of different types of sugars and other compounds. But don’t worry. You can still remove any honey stain from your clothes, rug, and other valuable items.
It is best to treat the honey stain as soon as possible, or else it tends to harden and gets stuck in the fibers. Also, if left to crust over, you run the chance of discoloring the white and light-colored fabrics that your rug consists of.
Note: Honey is such a sticky stain and quite challenging to remove at home. To harden and remove it from the rug, you should soak it in cold water. That will lead to mold and mildew in your rug which is a bigger challenge to face. We highly recommend you ask a rug cleaning expert before taking any action on the stain.
And voila! The stain is gone for good from your beautiful rug. For more help with other types of stains, don’t forget to check out our Stain Removal Guide.
