Most requested cleaning tips

Tips to tackle a whole host of spills and furniture stains are available at Warwick but here are 5 of the most-requested fixes:

  • Alcoholic beverages: After the moisture has been blotted up, dab at the stain with a clean cloth dampened in rubbing alcohol. Then blot repeatedly with liquid detergent mixed with cool water. Blot dry with a towel. Dab again with clear cool water and blot dry.
  • Chewing gum: Rub an ice cube over the gum to harden it, then scrape off the excess with a dull knife. To remove what’s left, use dry cleaning fluid.
  • Chocolate: This is a combination greasy/non-greasy stain. Scrape excess away, then go over the spot with cool water mixed with a liquid detergent. Blot thoroughly and then clean with dry cleaning fluid.
  • Coffee and tea: Sponge with warm water. Apply warm glycerine. Leave for 30 minutes. Flush out with water and dry quickly.
  • Cosmetics: Sponge with warm water. Apply warm glycerine. Leave for 30 minutes. Flush out with water and dry quickly.
