How to Remove Honey from a Carpet

Honey adds a natural sweetness to desserts, and surely it tastes great on toast or bread, but its stickiness can turn any honey stain into a challenge to remove. When honey has been dripped on a carpet, it sticks to the fibers and may seem impossible to come out, but if you act quick it shouldn't be a problem.

To remove honey from your carpet, you will need a butter knife, dish-washing soap, sponge and cleaning cloths. Here are the instructions suggested by carpet cleaning Clapham team:
  1. Remove as much honey from the surface of your carpet as possible using a butter knife. Do not press the butter knife too hard against the carpet to avoid damaging the carpet fibers.
  2. Use a clean sponge to apply a cleaning solution of 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap and 2 cups of warm water to the stain by scrubbing gently. The honey will be dissolved under the influence of warm water, and will become much easier to come out, according to carpet cleaning Clapham squad. The soap in the solution will help remove the stain from the carpet.
  3. Once the stain is gone, rinse out the soap solution from the carpet using cold water and a clean sponge. Make sure no soapy residue is left on the treated area, because it can lead to a quicker contamination of this area.
  4. Blot the carpet dry using a soft cloth.
