How to remove a tea stain from carpets

Oh No.  Have you accidentally spilled tea on your carpet?

Don’t panic, act fast and follow these five easy steps:


  1. Pour one cup of baking soda into a bowl.

  2. Take a damp microfibre cloth and coat it with baking soda. Apply directly on the tea stain.

  3. Rinse the affected area with cold water.

  4. Dry the area with an old clean tea towel or kitchen towel.

  5. Repeat steps 1 through 3 if stain hasn’t completely gone.

    Good Luck from the Cleaning Guru!
