How to Get Chocolate Out of Carpet

How to Get Coffee Out of Carpet

  1. Wipe or spoon up the excess chocolate (depending on quantity)
  2. Prepare a home detergent/ammonia solution
  3. Shampoo the area lightly with your prepared home detergent/ammonia solution
  4. Repeat until the chocolate stain is removed from your carpet

Keep these key factors in mind as you work to remove the chocolate from your carpeting.

Be sure to use a white cloth or a clean paper towel. You don’t want to accidentally stain your carpet more by using a cloth/towel with color pigment in it. If you do use a colored cloth/towel you run the risk of the pigment bleeding into your carpet. It’s also important to not rub too aggressively or you may cause texture change. Simply, dab lightly. Lastly, be sure to treat the stain as quickly as possible. By treating the chocolate stain when it’s still wet you’ll have better results and lower the risk of leaving a permanent stain. If you wait, that gives the chocolate time to settle and harden in your carpeting.

Home Detergent Solution

Use the following ingredients to mix your own home detergent solution:

  • 1 quart warm water
  • 1.6 oz. Ammonia
  • 1 tsp. liquid dish detergent
