SPILLS ... continued from page 1
Here are a few recommendations to help increase your chances of a successful stain treating outcome :
DO NOT rub or scrub the carpet with a towel or brush . This will distort the face yarns and cause permanent damage to the surface , which will only amplify the look of any stain .
DO pick up any chunks and then remove the excess liquid by gently blotting or scraping up as much of the spill as you can . If it is a liquid , such as coffee , wine or soda , use a white towel and blot up as much of the spill as possible . Keep blotting until your towel stops absorbing liquid .
DO NOT spread the spot . When scraping up thick spills , such as spaghetti sauce , work gently from

the outside edges of the spot toward the middle . Scrape up as much as possible before using any spot cleaners .
