This time of year, ranch dips and dressings are especially popular. They are frequently paired with dishes, or side condiments in conjunction with chips and veggies. This mouth-watering addition is often seen at many food related events such as parties, get-togethers, and normal meals. Celery and carrots along with chips in their varieties are dipped in ranch dressing, fried chicken, chicken wings, and other food flavors are enhanced with this wonderful condiment. But with so many options for it being served with and seen at many different eating indulgent times, the risk of it landing on the carpets is reasonably high. One of the worst places for ranch dressing to contact is carpet. It will stain quickly, and it can be difficult to remove, especially the longer it sits. With ranch dressing staining your carpets, the eyes sores can be distracting and make an otherwise pristinely kept room look unkempt. Today, we at Go Green Carpet Cleaning & Restoration would like to share a method on how you can remove the ranch/dressing from off of your carpets.

How Do I Get a Ranch Dressing Stain Out of Carpet

1) Before treating the potential stain, remove the bulk off the carpet’s surface. While going about this task, avoid spreading the dressing out and smashing it into the fibers. Use your blunt edged tool, spatula, spoon, or butter knife, to gently scoop the mass of ranch dressing of the surface. Use the paper towels to wipe it off the tool as you and then toss the paper towel when you are done.
2) Whether you use our home remedy solution or a commercial carpet cleaner, always perform a patch test in an inconspicuous location to ensure the carpet won’t be compromised. If you opt for the commercial carpet stain remover, be sure to follow the directions on the label. For the DIY formula, mix 1tsp non-bleach laundry detergent with 32 ounces of warm water and use the squirt bottle for easy application.
3) Administer your preferred cleaner on the affected area; do not over saturate. Allow the homemade formula to sit on the ranch dressing spill for at least 5 minutes. This gives the solution time to break down the dressing ingredients to make removal easier.
4) Dampen a clean, white cloth with plain water and blot the affected area. Be sure to begin blotting on the exterior of the spot and work your way to the center to contain the ranch dressing residue from spreading. DO not rub or scrub as you treat the spot, this will only for the dressing into the fibers, making residues harder to get out.
5) To avoid over saturation, use a few paper towels to blot out the excess moisture. Once the ranch dressing is gone, use a squirt bottle to apply pure water to the area and use a dry towel to absorb as much water as possible to remove the cleaner residue and moisture.
