Ketchup is enjoyed by everyone young and old, which is how it often ends up on the carpet. Kids love it on every meal, and adults tend to use it for BBQ’s and parties, and accidents often happen. However, when the ketchup ends up on the carpet, you need to remain calm and act fast to ensure that the stain can be removed easily.

The first thing that you need to do is carefully remove the excess ketchup from the carpet, and try to avoid spreading is further. You will be amazed at how many people rub the ketchup which is a disaster, and not what the cleaning company in Cheltenham will advise to do for any stain. After you have all of the excess cleared away, you can begin to clean.

Mixing ¼ teaspoon of mild detergent with four cups of cold water, you will make the perfect solution to remove the stain. You should get a wet towel, and wring it out until it is damp, making it perfect to blot the stain. This should be continued until there are no more spots, and then you can rinse the area with water.

You will need to lay a dry towel over the area, and then a piece of plastic which should be weighed down. This will allow any further moisture to be soaked up, and any of the remaining stain to be lifted, providing you with a clean carpet, free of ketchup.
