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  Showed up when they were supposed to - I have had too much trouble with other companies no shows. Tech Aiden did a great job, asking questions as needed and letting me know of problems spots. Now that everything is dry, all the carpets look glossy and clean. I will be calling them again for future cleaning.

  • 5 star review  I called on Monday to have my carpets cleaned. I was given an appointment for Wednesday between 10:00 and 12:00. 11:15 my buzzer went. A very nice young man ( Aiden ) came to my door. I was very impressed with him the moment he came in the door. He told me where he was going to start and finish. I had some very bad stains and he was able to get them all out. The price quoted to me was spot on, there were no hidden fees. You don't need to look any further just book now with Dazzle.

  • 5 star review  I’ve used this company 2 times now and am very impressed. The office staff made sure to confirm scheduled appointment time a day before visit, and also on the day to tell me that a service agent was on his way. When the Dazzle Carpet service agent arrived he was very professional, polite and got to work right away. I was very satisfied with the quality of work. I will always use this company going forward.

  • 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.
