Tea Stain

How To Get A Tea Stain Out Of Upholstery:

Here are some varied  DIY methods to get a tea stain out of upholstery dependent on what solutions you have at hand:

Method 1:  Using a clean cloth, soak up as much of the tea spill as you can. Wet the stain with some club soda and blot with a clean cloth, turning as the stain comes out. Continue applying club soda and blotting until the stain has been removed.

Method 2: Take one cup of white vinegar, add three drops of dishwashing liquid. Pour a bit of the mixture on a sponge and dab at the stain repeatedly until it is removed, then rinse the area with water.

Method 3:  Pour a small amount of beer (yes, beer!) directly on the stain. Use a clean cloth to gently rub it in, and then blot to soak up the beer and the stain. Repeat a few times to completely remove the stain. Rinse the area thoroughly afterward with cold water to remove the beer.

Method 4: Squirt some shaving foam on the stain and rub gently into the carpet with an old toothbrush or similar object. Use club soda or cold water to rinse the area, and then soak up by patting the area with a clean dry cloth. Continue the process until the stain is removed.

Method 5: Mix together of 3 to 1 bicarbonate/baking soda and warm water. Mix the two together to form a paste. Gently apply to the stain with a toothbrush. Allow the mixture to dry on the carpet. Vacuum, and then flush the area with either club soda or cold water and then soak up by patting the area with a clean dry cloth.

How To Get  A Tea Stain Out Of Carpet:

The methods, above,  to get a tea stain out of upholstery are the same for carpet. Advisory Notes: When the stain has been removed, place a clean cloth over the wet area and place something heavy on top, like books or weights this will allow any water/solutions remaining to wick into the weighted cloth.

    "Tom did a great job on my carpet and had it gleaming in no time, and dry too before he left"

    Tom was brilliant-when he arrived he was friendly and very professional. Tom carried out a thorough check of the  4 different carpets and pointed out some staining etc that he would be able to sort out. As the carpets weren't as bad as expected, he was honest and fair and charged slightly less than what I was quoted. We went out running errands while Tom was hard at work and when we came back, the carpets where looking tip top! He even did a bit of extra hoovering in the entranceway. When Tom left, the place was immaculate - he was neat and tidy from start to finish and we couldn't be happier with the work done today. Highly recommended, Thanks so much Tom!
