Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching and if you’re entertaining (even if you’re not) you may have a few spills on your carpet. Here are simple instructions on how to get hot wing sauce out of carpet. First, you should always have a few standard cleaning supplies on hand for spills. Try to keep a stack of clean, white cotton towels available along with a spray bottle mixture of 50% water and 50% white vinegar. If you don’t have a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water, Windex Multi-Surface with Vinegar is a good product to use for small carpet cleaning spills. DO NOT use blue or yellow Windex cleaning products as they may leave a color residue on your carpet.
So, the dreaded spill has happened – someone dropped a hot wing on your carpet! Obviously, pick up any large pieces of the hot wings with a napkin. Next, get your white cotton towels and spray bottle of vinegar and water. Now you’re ready to learn how to get hot wing sauce out of carpet.
Lay a white cotton towel over the spill and apply pressure with your foot or palm. The cotton towel will absorb a large portion of the spill. Remove the towel.
Spray the area with your 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water heavily. Again, lay a white cotton towel over the spill. Apply pressure, and the towel will begin to absorb the hot wing sauce spill and the 50/50 water and vinegar mixture. Repeat this process, using a clean portion of the towel each time you place it against the carpet; always use a clean portion of the towel so it doesn’t transfer the spill back to the carpet.
As you remove the hot wing sauce from your carpet, some areas will lift easier than others. You may have to spray your 50/50 water and vinegar mixture in concentrated areas and gently rub the spot with your clean cotton towel.
Continue to repeat this process until the stain has lifted. Keep in mind that the sooner you get to the spill, the easier it will be to get hot wing sauce out of carpet.
Here’s to a spill-free Super Bowl Sunday!
