‘Is there a “right” way to clean marks on car­pets?’

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - EXPERT ADVICE -

Def­i­nitely! Many car­pets are a wool and man-made­fi­bre blend, and if you treat them roughly (us­ing a scrub­bing brush or rub­bing with a cloth, for ex­am­ple), you’re likely to dam­age them and have scuffed, tufty ar­eas. The best thing to do is to cre­ate foam, then, us­ing a sponge, dab the foam onto the area. Al­low it to pen­e­trate but not dry. Now, dab at the mark with a white towel, us­ing a clean sec­tion each time you dab – you’ll be able to see the dirt trans­fer­ring onto the towel. Al­low to dry, then vacuum to lift re­main­ing dirt. Re­store the pile. TRY: Plush Supreme Car­pet Foam Stain Re­mover, R49,99
