Removing tough stains

Whether it’s grease in the kitchen or an accidental spillage in the living room, stains happen! Here are some examples of tough stains and how to remove them.

Kitchen grease

Kitchen grease caused over months of cooking can be stubborn to clean. One way you can remove the grease is through using vinegar. Put some vinegar into an empty spray bottle and spray it over the greased surfaces – such as your oven hob. Wait for about 5-10 minutes before wiping the surface down with a clean cloth or sponge.

Another cleaning method involves using baking soda. Baking soda is great to use on dirty pots and pans as well as surfaces. Simply pour baking soda onto a damp sponge and rub into the surface of whatever you’re cleaning. Next, use a clean, damp cloth to wipe away the excess. Good as new!

Carpet stains

Spilling something onto your carpet can mean disaster! Depending on the type of stain and the colour of your carpet it can be quite noticeable, and certain stains are tougher to remove than others.

For most stains, such as coffee or pet urine, blotting is the first step. Blot the stain with a dry towel until all of the moisture has been soaked up. Next, you can use a carpet remover product or create your own out of vinegar, water and washing up liquid. Rub in the solution and let it sit for a few minutes before wetting another clean cloth and rubbing the stain again. Keep repeating until the stain has lifted.

Removing stubborn stains can take up a lot of time, so hiring a professional cleaner is always an option. Here at Oven Bliss, we offer carpet, window and oven cleaning services. We also offer end of tenancy cleaning too – get in touch with us for more details!
