Hosting a Super Bowl watch party comes with the vulnerability of stains from some of the messiest foods in existence. While catching, and cleaning up stains as soon as they happen can best reduce the chances of the stain becoming permanent, sometimes it’s harder to do so in the midst of an active Super Bowl party when there may be a lot happening. Do you have difficult stains on your carpet left over from your Super Bowl party? Here are some of the best ways to get rid of them:
Pizza, Nacho, and Wings Stains
These three foods are among the messiest when it comes to Super Bowl; they are known to leave behind what are known as combination stains, which are a blend of more than one stain type. For example, with pizza and nachos, the combination stain is a mix of tomato and grease. Wings produce a combination stain of hot sauce and grease. Because these notorious, messy foods leave behind combination stains, they are harder to remove from fabrics and carpet floors.
The best solution to remove these stains is to first remove any solids that haven’t been picked up. Afterward, use paper towels to blot the stain; this will help pick up any grease or tomato stains. Next, use a damp sponge or clean white rag with a small amount of dish soap, or liquid laundry detergent to gently scrub the stain. Repeat this step as necessary until the stain fades and be sure to rinse the area with clean water to remove any lingering cleaner residue.
Chip Dust Residue
The small crumbs often left behind by chips can leave quite a mess at the end of the day. To be rid of them, simply use a vacuum fitted with an upholstery attachment to pick up these small particles.
Fortunately, beer is a water-based stain, which means that it’s not nearly as difficult to remove as other alcoholic beverages such as red wine or other mixed drinks. For that reason, you only need to flush the area with cold water. If that doesn’t work, take a damp sponge with just a small amount of dish soap and gently scrub the stain. Rinse the area with water afterward.
