How to Remove Muscle Cream Stains on the Carpet

After playing sports or doing a lot of tiring chores your body is surely going to be sore and aching. This can be very unpleasant as every move you make can cause a jolt of pain that is something that you don’t want to experience. Luckily, modern medicine has come a long way and there are now many remedies that you can try to alleviate the pain.

Muscle creams can come in really handy in these kinds of situations. The cream can help relieve aching muscles and joints which will make you feel a lot better. Just remember to avoid getting it on the carpet though as it can result in stains which you will have to clean up after.

Muscle cream stains can be tough to remove sometimes which is why you need to take the right steps to get your carpet back to normal. If you need help in solving this kind of predicament at home, follow the useful guide below which I have prepared.

1. Start off by getting a paper towel or clean white cloth and dabbing the area where the muscle cream was spilled. Carefully blot and dab the area to remove the excess cream while at the same time making sure that it does not spread to other unaffected areas of the carpet. Do this several times until you have removed as much of the excess cream as you can.
2. Next, get some water and add a few drops of it on the muscle cream stain that is left behind on your carpet. Use a paper towel to blot the area afterwards so that you can get rid of some more of the cream on the carpet fibers.
3. Use a combination of one part dish washing liquid and four parts warm water to create a cleaning solution that will help in getting rid of the muscle cream stain. Put this dish washing liquid cleaning solution inside a spray bottle and then move on to the next step.
4. Spray the muscle cream stain left behind on the carpet a few times using the cleaning agent that you created. Allow a few minutes to pass before getting a clean white cloth or paper towel and blotting the ugly stain on your carpet repeatedly. Do this step until all of the muscle cream stain is removed.
5. For the last step in this guide, get a cup of room temperature water and pour it on the place where the stain used to be. Then, dry everything using a wet/dry vac or some paper towels. This last step is to avoid having any residue get left behind on the carpet fibers.
