Having kids is one of the best experiences you can have. Watching your kids learn and grow is so fun and rewarding. Seeing their personalities develop as they grow into their own is such a fascinating process. Mixed in with all of these wonderful moments are some hard things as well. As kids grow they tend to leave messes wherever they go. Unfortunately your carpet is one of the most frequent places that their messes land. Today Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning is going to teach you how to get out some of the most frequent stains that your kids may have left on your carpet.

How to Get Gum Out of Carpet

Kids love their bubble gum! As a parent it would be easier to let them chew gum if you knew that it would not accidentally end up on your carpet. If you do find bubble gum on your carpet you will want to go grab an ice cube. Put the ice cube on the gum and let it sit there for one minute. The ice cube will make the gum get nice and hard. Once the gum is hard you should be able to simply scrape the gum off of your carpet. If it does not come up right away you may need to grab a butter knife or a credit card and scrape the rest off.

How to Remove Crayon Stains from Carpet

Coloring is one the most beloved pastimes of all time. For years kids and adults alike have enjoyed coloring. Sometimes kids just cannot seem to keep the crayon contained to the coloring page. If you find crayon marks on your carpet go and get a sponge and some baking soda. Get the sponge wet and then add some baking soda to it. Take the sponge and lightly wipe the crayon marks.

Removing Kool Aid & Colored Drink Stains Spilled on Carpet

When your kids develop enough to quit using a bottle or a sippy cup to a regular cup it can be such an exciting day. Then you realize that they this means that sometimes you end up with spilled drinks on your carpet. If you have stains from juice or other colored drinks on your carpet you will want to clean them right away for the best results. Get a dry towel and blot the area immediately. Do this until you have soaked up as much of the liquid as possible. Make sure that you do not scrub the area. Scrubbing the area will simply force the liquid further into the fibers of your carpet. Once you have gotten as much of the liquid up as you can get some water, white vinegar, and soap. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and spray the spot thoroughly. Let it sit there for 10 minutes. Get another clean towel and blot up the mixture.
