Chocolate is one of these things that everyone loves. Do you eat it often? Have you ever dropped it on your carpet? If the answer is yes – you know how much of a mess it can create. If the chocolate you dropped was melted – the cleaning process will be tough, I am not going to lie, but still, it’s not impossible to clean it by yourself. You can always ask for help from a cleaning company. After all, professionals will most likely be able to save you lots of headaches surrounding your carpet (I definitely recommend but if you are determined to try on your own – I will give you the exact steps to do it.

What do you need and what to do with them?

The first way

  • A white cloth
  • Rubbing alcohol

Get the rubbing alcohol and apply it to the white cloth. Start blotting the area (and turn the cloth to clean sides each time you blot). Do this until the stain is almost fully transferred to the cloth.

The second way

  • A white cloth
  • Dishwashing soap
    Grab the soap and add a ΒΌ teaspoon to a cup of water. Soak another cloth there and start blotting the stain with it.

The third way

  • Water
  • Ammonia
  • A white towel
    Make a mixture of 2 tablespoons of ammonia and a cup of water. Get the white towel, soak it in the mixture and start blotting (make sure you do not use this on wool carpets).

The fourth way

  • Powdered laundry detergent
  • Water
  • A toothbrush
  • A sponge
    Soak the toothbrush in 1 teaspoon of powdered laundry detergent mixed with a cup of water and gently start scrubbing. Once the stain is gone – rinse the area by blotting a watered sponge.
