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.

  • 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

  • My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • Aiden professionally cleaned a couple of our large area rugs and our sofa. He was very nice, very professional, and did a great job! The most important thing to me was to use a company that used cleaning products safe for my baby and my two dogs, and that’s what this company uses. Not only that, but they’re eco-friendly. I was thinking there would still be some lingering smell from the cleaning solution, but I didn’t smell anything at all which made me feel confident my baby and pets wouldn’t be breathing anything toxic as promised. We will definitely be using Dazzle again 🙂
