Whether you’ve spilt Calpol in a zombie-like state in the middle of the night, or your little one has spat back 5mls of what they deem to be poison, a medicine spill on the carpet is not what you need.

Cough syrups, liquid antibiotics, and pain relief for kids are usually a sticky consistency that clings onto carpet fibres and can seem tricky to remove. Carpets made from natural fibres such as wool will absorb the stain further, whereas synthetic carpets keep the stain afloat making it easier to remove.

How to clean up after a medicine spill on carpet

For best results get to work on the stain straight away. Always test out any cleaning solutions on an inconspicuous area of carpet first.
  • Scrape off excess medicine with a blunt knife or spoon.
  • Mix one tablespoon of vinegar and one tablespoon of washing up liquid, to two cups of warm water.
  • Use a clean cloth to sponge (not rub) the stain with the solution, until it has completely gone. Be sure to work inwards so as not to spread the stain.
  • Rinse the area with cold water to remove any vinegar/ soapy residue.
  • Use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot up any excess liquid.

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.
