Spills on area rugs over the holidays won't ruin the party if consumers follow tips for cleaning offered by online retailer,

"Holidays mean entertaining and when there are people, drinks, food and fun...there will be spills," says Paul Nangle of "People certainly don’t want those spills to become permanent stains on their favorite area rug, but if they follow our tips, their rug will look beautiful for many years.

-Holiday Spill Cleaning Kit-

People have to move fast when that cranberry sauce or red wine hits their favorite area rug. Our suggestion is that they keep a little box containing the following cleaning items handy at all times: Dry cleaning fluid, Clean Cloths, White Vinegar, Mild Detergent (containing no alkalis or bleaches), Alcohol, Sponges, Clothes Brush and Weak Ammonia 7% solution. These items can handle most holiday mishaps.

People should rub or brush their area rug gently from the outer edge of the spill toward the center to prevent spreading or causing a ring when using solvents. This is especially true for twist rugs and pile carpets. In the case that they can’t get to the spill right away and it dries or is just a particularly stubborn stain, people need to follow these three steps; saturate, blot, and brush. They should repeat this operation as often as necessary until the stain is completely gone.

Now that they know the correct procedure and have their Spill Kit ready they can pour Uncle Harry that extra glass of red wine and relax. If he does make a mess that even the Stain Kit can’t handle they can stop by our site for a new area rug.
