First Aid for Carpet Spills and Stain Removal

Act quickly. If liquid, blot up as much as possible with a clean absorbent cloth or tissue. If solid, scrape up as
much as possible with a spoon or the blunt edge of a knife.

Using a clean sponge or cloth, mop up the remaining spill carefully, working from the edges of the spill towards the
centre. Never over wet, scrub or rub too hard.

Blot dry with a new pad or absorbent cloth or tissue.

Reset the carpet or upholstery pile before it dries with a soft brush. This method of dealing with accidents
