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  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!

  • 5 star review  Smokers these guys are busy! Called wanting to get my place cleaned this Saturday before my lease was up, the receptionist kindly explained that they were fully booked but took the time to tell me all about their services and prices even still. Great discounts for first time customers. Even though Dazzle could not book me in I'm still happy I called. Good customer service is hard to come by these days. I'm an old timer who believes that the person who answers the phone is the face of the business. I gave the receptionist my information and she will be calling me back to set up carpet cleaning for my new place when I'm moved out! Wow! Still giving me 20% off even though the discount ends this month. If this is just their reception, can't wait to see what kind of job cleaning they do. Will update after my appointment. Kiera (i before e, like you told me!) keep up the good work. You made an old man very happy by chatting with him on the phone today!

  • 5 star review  Dazzle came to do carpet cleaning in my apartment building which turned out incredible. Our building is very old and the carpets were very saturated. You can see the lightness in color now and they no longer smell. I also utilized them to clean my carpet, bar stools, and couch on the same day. They did an excellent job. Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable

  • 5 star review  I used Dazzle Carpet Cleaning for the first time this week and am super impressed with the service and quality of work. After my previous carpet cleaner retired, I found Dazzle by searching carpet cleaners on the internet. I feel lucky to have found such a fantastic company first try. Kiera is very organized setting up the appointment and reminders and making sure I knew when the technician was arriving. Rob and his assistant cleaned the carpets. Rob is a very informed and talented professional. He ensured an excellent clean of my carpets and care of my walls and corners. I am very impressed and will call Dazzle in the future. I am also happy to support a small, local business.
