Summertime frequently results in summer BBQs where barbeque sauce is floating as it is commonly used as key ingredients in meat preparation and the final topping in many dishes. With many saturated fingers leading tp drips as the barbeque sauce is made ready, many homeowners will inevitably find a spill or smudge on the upholstery or carpet. Like most substances, the easier it is to remove is the sooner the BBQ sauce is cleaned up. We at Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning would like to offer a method to help you remove the BBQ sauce stains and spots from your upholstery and carpets.
How to Get Wet & Dried BBQ Sauce Stains Out of Carpet & Upholstery
1) Remove any dense mass. Scrape off the excess sauce and wipe it onto the paper towel armed with a spoon, spatula, or another blunt tool, as well as plain white paper towels. Gently blot out the remaining moisture with a clean, white paper towel once the bulk of the BBQ sauce is carefully removed. You can move on to the next step once you can no longer get any more sauce to transfer to the paper towel.
2) Make the cleaning solution. If the area requires further treatment in 2 cups of warm water mix in 2 teaspoons of dishwashing detergent. Use a cloth dipped in the solution to remove the BBQ sauce, starting on the outer rim of the stain and work your way towards the center. Only blot instead of scrubbing and rubbing since the barbeque sauce can spread. With dry paper towels or cloth to blot excess moisture in between solution application, prevent oversaturating the area. Once the rag is over encumbered, use a fresh corner as the older corners are overwhelmed with sauce and rinse it out under the tap before dipping it into the solution.
3) Treat and rinse. After you are satisfied with BBQ sauce removal, you will need to rinse clean the residual cleaner from the upholstery or carpet.

To remove old barbeque stains, the help of an oxygen-based bleach and cool water following package directions and that is safe on upholstery and carpet. How you treat the area with the solution should be done with the edges of the stain and worked towards the center. With a dry rag in between application of necessary, avoid oversaturating and blot. Allow the solution to soak in for 30 minutes or so prior to blotting. If the upholstery is vintage, contact a professional for treatment.
