 Summer is finally here! Lots of fun things are associated with long summer days but with the good comes the bad. With coming and going inside of your house your family, friends, and animals might be tracking in more than usual. You already have to worry about dirt, food, spills. Don’t waste your time worrying about ice cream stains too. Here we have some tips for you to take ice cream stains out before they become a real problem.  

Fresh Stain 

Since ice cream is protein based, it can be fairly difficult to remove. Try to treat the stain as soon as possible. Wet the area with cold water and let it sit for a few minutes. Do not use hot water which could set the protein in the ice cream. But in detergent into the stained area and rub the stain gently with a clean cloth. If you have a stain remover spray, you can use it now on the stain. Repeat if necessary. 

Dried Stain

If you are starting with a dried stain, try getting as much of the stain up using a dull knife before wetting the area. Rub in liquid laundry detergent into the stained area and let it soak for 15 minutes. Add cold water to the stain area and gently rub to get the stain up. Repeat the steps above to get the stain out. 

If you can not get all the ice cream out, consider hiring a professional cleaning service. It is recommended that you get your carpet professionally deep cleaned at least twice a year. This deep cleaning will keep your carpet looking great and keep it looking and smelling new for much longer.
