There is nothing quite like the smell of freshly cut grass, but if that grass has been trotted through your carpet, then it’s not so delightful. Grass stains on carpets are among the most common (and unsightly)

Even the most welcoming of ‘welcoming’ mats aren’t always able to prevent a grass trail up the stairs. Below is Renew’s step-by-step guide to cleaning up a grass stain on your carpet, so you can be sure the great outdoors is left, well, outdoors…

How to clean a grass stain from carpet

Two important things to remember when cleaning up a grass stain on a carpet – only use cold water (never hot or even lukewarm) and never rub the stain.

 

  • Vacuum up any clumps of grass or soil.
  • Mix one cup of cold water with a couple of drops of laundry detergent. Leave to work for 10 minutes.
  • Using a white cloth, gently clean the area working inwards.
  • When the stain is gone rinse the area with cold water to remove any soapy residue.
  • Leave to air dry.

“Some grass stains, especially if left for a period of time are tougher to remove. If this is the case and our method above hasn’t worked, then continue on with the steps below. “

Always test cleaning solutions on an inconspicuous area of carpet first, and wear appropriate clothing and gloves.

 

  • With the stain wet, apply an ammonia-based cleaning solution to the area.
  • Blot with a clean, white cloth.
  • Cover the stain with white vinegar, and blot again.
  • Rinse with cold water and use a clean towel to blot dry.

I was apprehensive to get my expensive Persian rug cleaned as you never know with these things but calling Renew I knew I'd made the right decision. They collected it, cleaned it impeccably and returned it right to my door.

Jason and the team were just so lovely. They really helped me out at the last minute and the carpets came up so well, I asked them to do my sofa too! Couldn’t recommend Renew enough. Will be calling them back next year.
