Question:

Removing syrup from area rug?

My 2yr old spilled ALOT of syrup on our large area rug...I tried HOT water, blotting the area, scrubbing the area and carpet cleaning solutions....any suggestions? Rug still extremely sticky when we step on the areas where the syrup is soaked in.

Answer:

I had this happen to our large area rug and I used our wet/dry Vacuum. If you don't have one you can borrow one from a friend or next door neighbor. Very handy to own. I made a very soapy hot water mix and kept wetting the syrup areas and then vacuuming the soapy water up and repeating. The hot water and soap worked well but on several really bad spots I used dishwasher liquid which broke down the syrup and made the cleanup much easier. I think I vacuumed the rug three times and now the rug looks new and the syrup is completely removed. The shop Vac wet and dry vacuum works great at removing spilled plates of food and especially syrup. Our children had a small party and we had a real mess until I thought about cleaning the rug with mu Shop Vac. Work great. Try this I think you will soon have a new looking area rug, with any syrup. They are having a sale on them at Home Depot for $49.00

You will need a lot of water. Put some terry cloth towels underneath and really soak it and blot it a lot. Eventually it will be gone. If you can, put the rug into a Washer or go to the commercial Laundromat and wash it there. I would use soap sparingly or not at all.

Hi. I think you can use a cotton floor rugs, it is easy to wash, when your dog can do this, then you can put the precious rugs and will not pee there. Here is a web store on amzon, it has cotton rugs, favourable price and good quality, safe and fast shipping. Thanks.
