Coffee Stain Removal

Coffee Stain Removal

Follow these steps in order to remove the Coffee spill:

  • In order to prevent the spill from becoming a permanent stain, Act Quickly.
  • Blot any liquids with a clean white towel.  Scrape any solids with a dull spoon.
  • Do Not scrub the carpet.  This may cause damage to the carpet fibers.
  • Pretest any spot removal agent in an inconspicuous area for color transfer or damage.  If color transfer or damage is present, don’t use that solution.
  • Never use any product which contains bleach.
  • Never use any of the spot removal agents in concentrations stronger than those recommended.
  • When using lacquer thinner, nail polish remover, or a dry cleaning solvent, never apply directly to the carpet.  Apply it to a white towel and then blot it on the spill.  Use caution when using these products, and follow the manufacturer instructions.



  1. Blot with white towel or non printed-paper towel to remove excess
  2. Mix 1/4-teaspoon mild (non bleach containing) detergent to one cup of warm water
  3. Apply to spot, rub gently in one direction at a time using white terry towel, or non printed-paper towel
  4. Blot clean with white towel or non printed-paper towel and warm water
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 no more than 3 times as necessary
  6. Mix 1/4 cup white vinegar with 1/2 cup cold water and apply to spot
  7. Blot dry with white towel
