The key to getting sauce stains out of carpet is to act fast. The longer the stain sits on your carpet, the harder it will be to remove. If you try to clean up a stain after it has been there for a few days, use a product that contains enzymes. These will help break down the proteins in the sauce, making it easier for you to remove.
Here are some tips for removing sauce stains from your carpet:
1. Blot up as much of the sauce as possible with a paper towel or cloth. This will help prevent it from spreading further into the fibers of the carpet. Hydrogen peroxide is good for removing blood and other organic stains from carpets. It will also help eliminate odors from urine and vomit. For dried-on food stains, pour some baking soda over the spot and let it sit for a few hours or overnight before vacuuming up the baking soda residue.
2. Apply a dry cleaning solvent directly onto the stain, then blot with another clean towel or cloth until no more liquid comes up from the carpet. If there are still traces of the stain left behind, rub in some carpet shampoo or enzyme cleaner, then blot again until all traces are removed.
3. Rinse with cold water and blot dry using a clean towel or cloth.
