“There are many varieties of salsa and more than likely at some point you will inevitably spill onto your rug.“
1. Equipment Needed
Butter Knife │ Water │ Terry Cloth/Sponge │ Mild dish detergent
Try to remove as much as of the excess salsa as you can before you begin to treat the area. This includes getting rid of any tomatoes or onions ect that might be left on the rug from the salsa.
Now run cool water through the stain, this should force the stain out of the fabrics of your rug and get rid of any debris that you might not have gotten yourself.
Take some liquid dish washing soap and put it on the stained portion of the rug. Work the detergent from the outside working your way inward to prevent the stain from spreading anywhere else.
After you are satisfied and the stain has begun to fade be sure to rinse again with cool water to get out any detergent that might be left over.
Lastly let your rug dry thoroughly on both sides before placing it back on the floor.
