Advice in Removing Pineapple Jelly on the Carpet

Making a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich is really simple yet it can be very tasty. Ask any kid what his or her favorite sandwich is and surely PBJ will be one of the top answers. You can use many kinds of jelly to make your peanut butter and jelly sandwich which makes it even more fun.

A lot of people prefer to use grape jelly when making their PBJ but personally I love to use pineapple jelly. It has a unique taste and it offers a different flavor to your sandwich. Just don’t accidentally get it on your carpet though as this can be a major cleaning issue.

Pineapple jelly stains on the carpet can be really tough to deal with if you are a homeowner. You never want to have anything ruin the appearance of your carpet which is why cleaning up this mess properly is important. Take a look at the guide below to help you in removing the pineapple jelly stain on your beautiful carpet.

• Start off by scraping as much of the pineapple jelly on your carpet using a dull knife or a spoon. Do this right away so that you can minimize the extent of the stain on your carpet fibers. After scraping off the solid food particles, use a paper towel and blot the area to ensure that there is no food residue left behind.
• After you have cleared the carpet of the spilled jelly, the next step is to make a cleaning agent that you can use to remove the stain that is left behind on your carpet. Take a teaspoon of white vinegar and combine it with one cup of warm water to make a really potent cleaning solution.
• Take the cleaning solution you have made in the previous step and proceed to where the pineapple jelly was spilled on your carpet. Pour a small amount of the cleaning solution and then apply it onto the affected area. Allow a few minutes to let the solution soak the pineapple jelly stain and then start blotting the stained area of your carpet.
• You need to continue blotting because doing it a few times will not do the trick. Be patient and continue to blot the pineapple jelly stain until it is completely gone.
• For the last step, take a cup of clean water and pour it where the pineapple jelly stain used to be. Then, get a clean paper towel or rag and blot the area until it becomes dry. This will help you avoid having any residue staying behind on the carpet fibers.
