Help, how do I clean spilled shampoo??

So my daughter spilled johnsons baby soap all over my carpet and every time I try to clean it with a washcloth it just suds up (obviously)?. When I googled it it says how to clean it with a wet/dry vac, well I don't have a wet/dry vac! So someone please help me get this shampoo out of my carpet, and preferably with a solution that won't take me 9 lifetimes lol! ??

Just blot it out until the foam stops to appear. It'll take you quite some time but this is the only way.

To clean a fresh liquid soap spill out of your carpet without a shop vac place a towel on the area. Stand on the towel for about a minute. Repeat this process with dry spot on the towel until the towel comes out dry.

Once you have drawn up as much shampoo as possible with the towel, avoid walking directly on the area.

The only way to remove the rest would be to rent a rug cleaner or hire a professional carpet cleaning company.

You should call a carpet cleaner and have them steam clean the carpet. Shampoo in the carpet is going to attract dirt unless thoroughly removed. It is going to turn into a very dirty stain pretty quickly. Steam cleaner will pull all the shampoo out in quick order.

I also have couple information on this subject. I think you should try a firstly rinse with water those areas, then after dry with the towels. After then, you can add one -third cup white vinegar to two- thirds cup water and use those in the area to remove the shampoo residue. Lastly, rinse with water and blot until dry. Once the carpet is thoroughly dry, use baking soda to deodorize.


Best,

I think I agree with the above. Use very wet cloths of some sort to sort of soak that area. After a minute or two, take clean towels and stand on them for a while. Repeat this again. Afterwards, cover the area again with clean dry towels.

I had a cat who was incontinent (he had a bowel disease). He left little messes all over the place. This is the method I used, and it worked quite well. After everything is DRY, if the carpet smells weird, use one of those backing soda based carpet fresheners.

If none of this works: call a professional carpet cleaner, one who wont take you for an arm and a leg! Some companies try to sell you on cleaning ALL of the carpet, not just spot cleaning.

The wet dry cleaning method is ideal for taking the shampoo out of the carpet, but if you do not know about this, then get in touch with carpet and rug cleaning companies who can clean the carpets effectively as they have all the advanced equipments and knowledge to clean the carpets properly.

Carpet cleaning services are not expensive and results will be awesome at the end of the day. You don't have to do anything, go anywhere, or arrange something. The residential carpet cleaning company has everything. Just check the services near your area in Australia. For example, you will need to search for a reputed carpet cleaning NSW company and they will do everything. They will also give you tips and advice for the future.

I do not recommend calling a carpet cleaning company every time, but once in two months or when you are not able to deal with the nitty gritties of the expensive rugs or carpets, it is better to get in touch with the professionals because they know what works and what wonít for your carpets.

I just connected this conversation and found there are very exciting posts out there.I think blot the affected area immediately before it sticks to the fibre. Blotting will minimize the chances of staining on your carpet. You can remove fresh stains by using dry baking soda bubble and later sponging up thoroughly.keep sharing.

Spray the area with a light coat of water. Use the wet/dry vacuum to pull the water and remaining shampoo out of the carpet. Continue until no more shampoo remains. A small amount of suds are fine, but if they begin to become overwhelming, sprinkle them with salt. Good luck!!

I would love to know how CrazyMom27 made out with this! I am picturing a young mother with her hands completely full and being driven nuts by it all, and then THIS happens! LOL! Been there, done that. Seems like these small accidents always happen at the worst possible time.

I suggest you to use high quality carpet cleaner that eliminates a variety of tough stains, including tar, red wine and coffee.
You can visit Warehouse115 online wholesale supplier for some cleaning products. I hope this would be helpful for you.

Yeah as Peter suggested, I would imagine you just gotta keep putting water on it.
