This time of year there tends to be a huge spike in carpet cleaning. Not just because it’s Easter, but for a variety of reasons;

So what’s the best way to get ground-in Easter Egg out of your lounge carpet?

If you know you have bleach-cleanable carpets (we sell lots of these – especially to families with young children!) then you can use most domestic cleaning products to get the stain out – although we would always recommend reading the label and following the instructions before using them. If, however, you’re not sure, then it’s best to start with some warm soapy water, a clean dishcloth or scrubbing brush and some kitchen roll. 

  1. Wet the cloth/brush and work it into the stain, taking care not to spread the mark out further. Try working in from the outside to the centre of the stain.
  2. Blot the damp patch with the kitchen roll
  3. Repeat process until the stain is gone.
  4. Leave to dry and then vacuum

Of course some  stains are more stubborn and in these cases it might be best to either hire in a professional carpet cleaning machine or a reputable carpet cleaning company. These can be especially effective if you have large or high traffic areas of carpet that needs cleaning such as the hall, stairs and landing or a through lounge-dining room. 

In our experience, chocolate stains do come out of carpets with a little elbow grease most of the time . Just be wary of the red wine and the berry cheesecake at the big family Easter dinner though!
