how to get honey off the rug

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 rug, clothes, and other valuable items. 

It is best to treat the 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 white and light-colored fabrics that your rug consists of.

1. Equipment Needed

Spoon │  Cold & Hot Water  │  Butter Knife  │  Terry Cloth  │  Mild dish detergent

2. Steps 


Start by wiping any remaining honey off the rug with a spoon from the outside working your way inward making sure not to spread the stain any further. 


If the honey starts to become hard or you didn’t get to the accident right away, you can use a butter knife to scrape off any excess debris that is present on your rug.


Now you can make use of your dish washing liquid by mixing a teaspoon in a warm cup of water. 


Use a sponge or your clean cloth to blot the area until the stain starts to come up. 


Lastly use some cold water on your sponge/cloth and clean up the remnants of the honey that remain and let the area dry completely on both sides of your rug.
