How To Keep Your Carpets Clean During Winter

If you love venturing into the great outdoors or taking your dog for long walks in the countryside you’re probably used to bringing a healthy dose of rain, mud, or soil back home with you. The only problem with this is that a build-up of mud can cause your carpets or rugs to look dirty or shabby, or even start to smell.

In this blog we’re providing our top advice on how to keep your carpets clean during winter so you can enjoy your cream or lightly coloured carpets all year round.

How Do You Get Mud Stains Out of Carpet?

Here is a tried and tested carpet cleaning formula for mud stains which you can easily do at home without any professional assistance:

1. With some carpet stains it’s best to treat them straight away, however with mud it’s best to let it dry first. You can then vacuum up as much as possible.

2. Mix one tablespoon of liquid soap with 475ml of warm water.

3. Using a clean, lightly-coloured cloth, gently dab the stain with the soap solution until the liquid is absorbed. Repeat until the stain disappears.

4. Finally, sponge the carpet with cold water and dry with a cloth. Just like that, your mud stain should be a thing of the past!
