Removing Chocolate Stains From Carpet

by May 17, 2019Cleaning Tips0 comments

It happens to the best of us – one minute we’re enjoying an after-dinner or mid-day treat, and the next thing we know we’ve gone and smeared our deliciously dark chocolate into our previously clean carpets! Concerned about removing chocolate stains from carpet? Here’s a quick and easy guide before contacting the professionals at Dazzle CC!

Let’s start!

1.) Scrape up the excess chocolate from the carpet using a clean, non-sharp, non-serrated knife. Be gentle to avoid damaging the carpet fibers. The chocolate you’re able to remove can they be placed onto a paper towel – make sure that you’re cleaning off the knife frequently so that you aren’t rubbing more of the chocolate into the carpet!

2.) Apply rubbing alcohol! Alcohol will dissolve the fats in the chocolate without damaging the carpet. Use a white cloth to apply the rubbing alcohol, and then lay the cloth over the stain.

3.) Grab a spoon and use the backside of it to massage the stain over the alcohol-soaked cloth – this will ensure that the alcohol is worked through into the fibers.

4.) Make a detergent solution by mixing a 1/4 tsp of an eco-friendly colorless detergent or shampoo with a liter of warm water and stir to combine.

5.) Soak the cloth in the detergent mixture and lay it onto the stain, using a damp kitchen towel to then further massage the cloth. Work the detergent into the carpet – this will help to remove chocolate stains from carpet.

5.) Remove the cloth and use another clean cloth to blot the area dry; remove all excess liquid and continue to ensure the stain has lifted.

6.) Rinse the carpet by spritzing it with clean water from a spray bottle to ensure the chocolate, alcohol, and detergent mixture has been drawn out f the fibers.

7.) Allow the carpet to dry – lay a few sheets of paper towel on top of the wet patch and wait 3-6 hours to ensure that the water has been thoroughly absorbed.

  • 5 star review  Dazzle Carpet Cleaning provided excellent service at very competitive prices. The technician they sent, Aidan, was punctual, professional and pleasant. He worked on stains until both he and I were satisfied they were removed. The products used were scent-free and dry within a couple of hours. I would definitely use Dazzle services again.

  • 5 star review  We are extremely happy with the carpet cleaning and vinyl waxing job, Rob and his team from Dazzle has done for us in our office space. They were quick, efficient and more than accommodating to us for our needs. The outcome was fantastic! I would highly recommend and intend to use them again in the future.

  • 5 star review  I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!

  • 5 star review  I called Dazzle carpet cleaners to clean older carpet in my condo. I was so impressed by the amazing job Aiden did and his professionalism. He was even able to get out some stains I thought were there for good. So impressed! Will absolutely use Dazzle again.

  • 5 star review  Dazzle was one of the few places I called looking to have my sofa cleaned. In the end, I chose this company simply because the person over the phone was polite and professional. Aiden was the technician that arrived at my home, and not only did he get the nasty stains out of my sofa, but he gave me cleaning related knowledge that I was unaware of. He was also super kind, polite, and professional. I’ll definitely be sticking with Dazzle for future services!

  • 5 star review  I noticed the Dazzle Carpet Cleaning van at my neighbours and gave them a call to see if they could clean my place too. Thankfully Bernard was able to make a switch and fit me in! Soon after, Aidan came to my door to assess what needed to be cleaned and I could see that he was enthusiastic about stain removal! Aidan is friendly and professional and did a great job carefully moving furniture around. He thoroughly cleaned my large sectional sofa, the living room carpet and even got the blueberry stain out of my kitchen chair! I highly recommend Aidan as he clearly has confidence in his own skills and demonstrates pride in his work. I am very happy with the results!
