How to Remove a Tomato Sauce Stain from Carpet

Learning how to remove a tomato sauce stain from carpet is simple as long as you follow two important rules: act fast and blot (don’t rub). It’s also a good idea to keep some basic cleaning products on hand (dishwashing detergent, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, club soda), just in case some pizza sauce goes flying or your daughter spills her bowl of penne. The longer you wait, the more the sauce will cling to the carpet fibers, so eliminating a trip to the store for cleaning supplies will really help.

Now let’s learn how to remove a tomato sauce stain from carpet!

  1. First you’ll need to remove any excess sauce. A spoon or knife works well for this. Use whichever utensil you prefer to scoop or scrape off the extra tomato sauce. Start at the outer edges and work your way in so that you don’t spread the stain out further.
  2. Then, apply club soda or cold water to the stain. You could sprinkle on a little (taking care not to soak the carpet) or use a clean sponge. Blot up as much of the stain as possible with a damp sponge. Then, use a dry paper towel to blot up and dry the area.
  3. After that, mix about a tablespoon of liquid dish detergent to two cups of cool water. Using a clean sponge or cloth, blot and gently stroke the stain with the detergent solution. Rinse afterward with cold water.
  4. The stain might have disappeared by this point. If so, fantastic! Dry the spot thoroughly and rejoice. If not, carry on with step #5 . . .
  5. Mix 1 tablespoon of ammonia with 1/2 cup cool water (Warning: Be careful with ammonia. Use gloves. Never mix it with chlorine bleach. Do a test patch before applying to your carpet because it can bleach darker colors). Apply the ammonia solution to the stain and blot up. Don’t soak the carpet. Rinse afterward with cold water and blot up the excess liquid with a paper towel.
  6. If the stain isn’t gone after the ammonia solution, create a hydrogen peroxide mixture with 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide and 3 tablespoons cold water. (Warning: Be careful with hydrogen peroxide. Use gloves. Do a test patch before applying to your carpet because it can bleach darker colors). Apply the mixture, cover with a towel (to block out light), and let sit for 30 minutes. Check on it every 5 minutes or so, to be sure the color of the carpet isn’t changing. Rinse with cold water afterward and blot up any excess liquid.
  7.
