Removing Milk from Carpet

If you accidentally spill some milk on your carpet, don't cry! Aside from letting Fluffy attempt to lick up the milky mess, there are a number of ways to remove it from carpet. It's important to make sure you treat milk stains quickly. Even though they might not be as visible as other stains, milk that is left unattended can spoil and smell. Remember to blot stains rather than rub them as rubbing can push the stain further into the carpet or cause it to spread. Also, make sure you test any cleaning solution on a small, unseen part of your carpet to make sure it won't damage or discolor your floor.

Here are a few ideas to remove milk from your carpet:

1) Soak the stain with warm (not hot) water and then blot with a clean white cloth. Repeat until the stain has lifted.

2) Mix a teaspoon of mild dish detergent into a cup of warm water and apply to the stain. Blot with a clean white cloth and repeat as needed.

3) For milk stains that have been left and already smell, try sprinkling baking soda over the stain and then pouring cold water on top. Wait until it dries completely and then vacuum it up. If the smell isn't gone, try treating the area with white vinegar. If nothing else works you can try a commercial enzyme odor remover.

Don't be fooled by the unintimidating appearance of a milk stain. If not treated promptly, the smell it can cause might be more annoying that any spot on your carpet. If you know a method for removing milk-stains that has worked for you, please post it as a comment on this blog!

Great article. You should also note that if the stain has sunk into the padding, it will be much harder to cleaning. You may need to replace the padding.

The vinegar trick worked for me. I diluted it to about 1/4 c. vinegar to 4 cups water and used my spot bot to continuously spray the solution then suck it up. Then I used only warm water in the machine to draw up the vinegar water as much as I could. Took a day or two for the vinegar smell to go away, but I no longer smell curdled milk, so it's well worth it.

Nelly- yes I agree. I had to replace the carpet padding under my carpet because that is what stunk! I could have blotted my entire carpet away until I figured that out!I used baking soda since I used it always for odor control from my pups! That normally always works. great blog tool I used your advice and it really did help!

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
