It’s a good idea to always keep a bottle of Club soda in your pantry to use when there’s a spill. It will remove things like coffee, red wine, pet stains and more.

Pour the club soda directly onto the area and let it soak into the rug. Keep blotting the area until the stain is gone. Do not rub, just blot.

It will be more difficult to remove once its dry so move quickly. Another great trick is to pour salt on top of the stain, let it dry and vacuum up the next day. The saly will lift the stain out. If the stain is still visible after treatment call an expert but if you catch the spill in time your rug should look as good as new.
