A Better Spotting Guide

A Better Spotting guide is filled with ideas to help keep your carpets, upholstery, and area rugs spot free. Here are some spotting tips to keep in mind before you start:

  3. 3Apply the appropriate spot remover as directed for each type of stain.

  4. 4Always work toward the center of the spot.

  5. 5Repeat steps if necessary, and always blot between steps with a clean white towel.

  6. 6Always do a test on a portion of carpet that is normally not visible before attempting any spot removal.

  7. 7Never use bleach!
