Spotting Guide


The following three solutions will be required together with a dry cleaning solvent and some white absorbent cloth or tissue.

Detergent solution

One teaspoon of neutral detergent, such as “Woolite”, to 1/2 pint (1/4 litre) of warm water.

Detergent/Vinegar Solution

Add one teaspoon of white vinegar to the detergent solution.

Ammonia Solution

One teaspoon of household ammonia to one cup of warm water. Test the solution on a small out-of-the-way area, then tackle the stain by working from the outer edge towards the center. Check for color fastness prior to carrying out any wet process on your carpet.
