It is important when spotting to always test a spot in an inconspicuous area to assure that no color transfer occurs (common with some vegetable-dyed rugs). Slightly dampen some paper towels and place them on the rug underneath a weight. If no color transfer can be seen, you may proceed with the following spotting technique:

  1. Blot up the excess spill.
  2. Blot with water and a clean white rag.
  3. Spritz the spot with 50/50 mixture of Folex and Rubbing Alcohol.
  4. Blot
  5. Spritz again with mixture of Folex and Rubbing Alcohol
  6. Place approx 8-10 paper towels on the spot and weigh down with phone book or some other item. Leave for atleast 3 hours or until dry.
  7. Repeat steps as necessary

If you spot remains, it may need professional area rug cleaning. If you have another specialized spot you need assistance with, please contact us and we will be happy to assist.
