Life’s little accidents don’t need to become major disasters.
UH OH – THERE GOES THE COFFEE!
Sound and feel familiar?
We all know that sinking feeling as you scramble for the closest cloth or paper to get to the liquid before it sinks into the fabric or rug……but it doesn’t have to be that way!
Accidents will happen. At some stage someone will bump someone else holding a coffee, the rich red wine splashes while being poured or the orange juice slurps out of the glass onto your favourite cushion.
So protecting your soft furnishings and rugs and carpets provides peace of mind. It allows you not to have to focus on what people are doing, but focus on them being a part of the activities.
When that is taken care of, the clean up is much easier and incredibly effective.
BLOT – DILUTE – BLOT
So now your textiles have been treated by Premium Surface Protection Textile Treatments, follow these simple guidelines when dealing with liquid and other spills.
Firstly, look for manufacturer’s textile specific cleaning instructions as some fibre compositions can be permanently damaged by using incorrect methods and even collapse with the addition of water. Otherwise, BLOT – DILUTE – BLOT
Use water to clean up water-based spills (eg tea) and most other beverages; these need nothing more than water. Simply blot as much of the spill as possible and then dilute with just a little bit of water and then blot again. Never over wet or saturate the contaminated textile!
BLOT – DILUTE – BLOT
What does BLOT mean?
It means to NEVER RUB OR SCRUB!
Use absorbent paper towel, or ideally the PSP SuperSoaker Absorbent Chamois Sponge, applying pressure until all liquid has been absorbed. Ensure to continue to change the absorbent paper for clean paper while applying pressure, or wring out the Chamois as needed.
For fatty/oil spills (eg ice-cream or gravy) use WonderSpot which contains a mild PH to break down the spill, and then continue to blot with absorbent paper or Chamois.
DRIED LIQUID SPILLS
Lightly re-wet the spill and follow the instructions above under the heading BLOT – NEVER RUB OR SCRUB
WET OR DRIED SOLIDS
Remove as much of the solids as possible by vacuum or blunt spoon or knife, then treat as above, either as a WET SPILL or DRIED LIQUID SPILL.
Some light or delicate textiles may need professional attention in either a wet extraction, very low moisture cleaning or dry cleaning if there are any marks still showing.
