How To Take Care Of Leather Furniture?

Corona Attack: Health Threat or State Threat

Let me invite the reader to remember about a month back, before all of us feel the deep anxiety like now. it started when the Chinese government conducted a lockdown that began in the city of Wuhan in Hubei Province in December 2019 and then followed other cities also took part in the lockdown to put the brakes on the spread of the corona virus, which is currently given the covid-19 code.

 

Then spread information about the spread of covid-19 virus to several other countries, when the world began to worry when there a few people who feel very confident not to be infected by the virus. These were the several conversations in cyberspace and in coffee shops one month ago. Furthermore anti-science statements by the public and netizens in cyberspace are then strengthened by various statements, even though the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned all countries to be vigilant about the virus. Then we come to this day. The statements and feelings of anti-science arrogance to the community about a month ago were paid off by the current anxiety. This concern is indicated by several governments taking the option to close access.

 

Inadequate Health Facility Readiness as well as Hospital Bed Readiness in every state. Health facility readiness is indeed one of the determining factors in handling corona, but the readiness and firmness of the government is also important. Learn from what happened in Italy, whereas if based on the readiness of health facilities, of course Italy was far more prepared.

 

Two-way attack - After WHO announced that Covid-19 is a pandemic (read: epidemics that had spread to several countries or continents) and recommended activation of national emergencies, the government should have looked at this issue in greater view. The corona pandemic is not just a health problem, so the central government must think of and consider many scenarios if the status of a national emergency is determined.

 

To face the problem today, the government will think of the best steps and strategies by considering all the scenarios that will occur in the future. This problem will have a big enough share to bring the economy to fall further. Imagine if social distancing is valid for the next two or three months or even more, community interaction will be reduced. Of course many households will withhold their consumption. Seeing the community work sector in many places, the implementation of social distancing status which is then more specified as physical distancing will severely hit the economy of most households.

 

It's what going on in this world today!

No one is immune to the fear but fear will not make us better.

Let's do our part by taking care of our health and environment while keep watching for all the possibilities that might be happened.

HEALTH is so valuable now.

Healthy outside, healthy inside.

How To Take Care Of Leather Furniture?

How To Take Care Of Leather Furniture?

Leather is a type of material that is durable and easy to care for as long as you know the steps to take care of it correctly. However, various types of leather furniture have different types of cleaning according to the type of the leather.


Recognize the Types of Leather In Furniture

Unfinished Leather

This leather is pure animal skin material which is not given a touch of color finishing. This type of genuine leather has a luxurious and soft feel.


This type of genuine leather is usually more sensitive than other types of leather, the price is more expensive. This type of leather is very similar to suede sofa leather.


Finished Leather


This type of leather is often called finished leather or semianniline or anilline plus pigment or even pigmented leather. This ready-made skin is usually better protected by its surface because it is not porous and is more resistant to stain or liquid absorption and has a more diverse appearance.


Imitation or Synthetic Leather


This material is widely used to make sofas, usually a material known as oscar material. This material is thicker and looks stiffer. This type of material is usually a synthetic leather made from polyurethane plastic polymers. It is better than PVC polymers which are easier to peel. It is quite strong and durable. So this material is widely used as an upholstery material for imitation leather sofa.


Now, how to take care of the furniture according to the type of material


Unfinished Leather


It is relatively easy to clean if there are stains that stick to clean immediately using soap that does not contain hard detergents. Also keep away from products that contain alkali, ammonia, silicone and aerosol-shaped products. These materials can damage the texture of the leather.


Finished Leather


Please don’t use detergents, cooking oil, and various other abrasive materials. They are prohibited from being used in finished leather.


Faux or Synthetic Leather


Faux or synthetic leather is basically also vulnerable to abrasive chemicals like ammonia, alkali, silicon and others. These material can dissolve the color in the top layer and make the texture of the leather becomes harder and easier to peel.

YOUR LEATHER FURNITURE IS YOUR INVESTMENT, TOO!

The PROs and CONs in Natural vs. Synthetic Rugs

The PROs and CONs in Natural vs. Synthetic Rugs

Having a rug is common. You even know the various types of rugs, don’t you?


However, choosing what kind of rug is a serious decision. The designs, textures and price affect the art of your room. These are items that are potentially in your home for a long time. You should think first before decide.

So, let’s compare natural and synthetic man-made (artificial) fibers.

The things we should know about Natural Fiber:


  • This fiber is very absorbent so it needs more time to dry.
  • It is easily damaged by chemicals.
  • It shrinks, gets stain, and fades easily.
  • It attracts mold and insects.
  • Biodegradable and can be recycled.


Wool


It’s soft, luxurious, naturally stain-resistant and flame-retardant (the fibers aren’t easy to be burnt and can be self-extinguish quickly without additional chemical solutions).


Though wool rugs are expensive, they have a better value. When you really take good care of them, they can last up to more than 50 years! 


Instead of soft, wool is resilient – wool rugs hold their shape, even when you stretch it the fibers will be bounce back without breaking.


Please have the Certified Organic Wool, if don’t, it may contain pesticides.


There’s good news for people who have allergies because wool fibers hold dust particles and help to purify the air by absorbing the air contaminants. Not even you and I can see them.


Silk


Silk rugs look luxurious and expensiveeither. It’s the only natural filament fiber that makes shiny and very soft to  your rugs.


It needs special treatment and knowledge to take care of it.


  • The alkaline detergent can make it yellow.
  • Exposure to sunlight will result in fading.


To clean silk rugs is somewhat complicated because water spots and watermarks can result from wet cleaning.


Do you know if silk fibers exposed to moisture will lose its strength approximately 20%?


You’d better have dry cleaning. It is best way for cleaning. For the real silk costs at least $50 per square foot, beware if it costs less.


We haven’t done with the natural fibers since there are still types of rugs made from natural fibers from plants. They are made from <strong>cotton, seagrass, jute, coir, and sisal


  • They have a natural organic appearance.
  • They are rough.
  • They don’t generate static electricity.
  • They are less expensive than wool and silk, but their price will vary due to the weave and fiber combinations.


Cotton is soft to the touch but wears quickerthan wool. It is rarely used to manufacture large area rugs, so it’s handmade rugs.


  • It’s easily to get stain and soil.
  • It can turn gray.
  • It’s not good to be in heavy traffic areas.
  • It’s stronger when wet!
  • It’s not naturally flame retardant.


Seagrass


It’s the cheapest of natural fibers. It’s tough, more casual look and it isn’t scratchy likes sisal


Its textured weaves and dark colors help to hide blemishes.


It naturally gets rid of stains and cannot be dyed. It is the cheapest of natural fibers.


Jute


Actually, it’s often used as carpet backing.


It is the softest of all the plant fibers, but less durable. Jute works well in low to medium traffic areas.
It is resistant to mold and mildew, but consistent moisture and exposure sunlight will cause it to  deteriorate.


Coir


It is tough but really scratchy and rough. Its fiber is durable, rot resistant, repels insects, and is difficult to ignite. It is great for casual areas with some exposure to moisture.


Sisal


Its tight weaves create very durable carpets and rugs that are great for high-traffic areas.


Now, let’s to talk about the artificial fibers. It’s also known as Synthetic Man-made Fibers.


They are from a non-renewable resource; theyare made of petroleum-based synthetic. They are Nylon, Polypropylene, Polyester.


Nylon


It is one of the most popular synthetic fibers. Nylon is excellent! It is resilient, its abrasion resistance is excellent, and it can resist mildew, aging and sunlight fading with very good color retention. The con is that it is poor in resisting stains.


Polypropylene


It is less expensive than nylon for sure. It resists mold and fading from sunlight. It is the fiber of choice for outdoor use. One major drawback of Polypropylene - it attracts oil-based stains.
Abrasion can permanently damage the fibers, like friction caused by moving
furniture.


Polyester


Do you know Polyester fiber is recovered from type 1 plastic soda bottles? It is great because it helps to reduce waste in the garbage dump.


It has an excellence resistance to mildew and aging but the heat exposure from the sun will cause degradation.


It also attracts oily soils so it’s not good to be put in high traffic areas.


If you have any further questions or issues with your rugs, carpets you may call ROBERT YOUNG CARPET CARE. We can do more than rugs and carpet.


We use environmentally friendly, non-toxic products that won't cause any harm or damage to any type of rugs, carpet, furniture, and flooring. Our formula is more potent and safer than your average cleaning company, which is why we're known as the best around!

Should you do the deep cleaning your houses during Autumn?

Should you do the deep cleaning your houses during Autumn?

You’ve never thought about it before, haven’t you?
Yes! You are all used to do the deep spring cleaning at home, but have you ever
done autumn cleaning?

We are from Robert Young Carpet Care going to share our opinion about it.

So, should you do the deep cleaning your houses in Autumn? We should answer - Yes! It’s important, because we believe we want to achieve a healthier winter for sure.

During the Autumn the temperature decreases the humidity is uncontrollable. Have you ever thought that the rugs natural fibres, carpets, cloths at home can be the problem? They are the best places to incubate
germs, bacteria, also molds and mites act up in warm winter environments.

Don’t worry! You only need some simple steps to do in autumn to stay healthier in winter.

Instead of cleaning your rugs, carpet, furniture, you should clean your mattress. If you sleep in a healthy mattress, your sleep quality will be increased. Having a good quality of sleeping, instead of keeping your best immune system, it is also the best defence against viruses. So please clean your bed, blankets and the bed sheets.

Do you know when you have deep cleaning in Autumn, you will have fresh thinking?


Summer is over, Autumn comes. The weather is going to change, with the lack of ventilation and warm moist air this situation is the ideal phase for germs and their friends to grow.

Please pay more attention to floors, furniture, and fibres

As you know your carpets, sofas, pillows and mattresses are the best places for mites and bacteria. You should take care of them regularly cleaned. Remember, they look clean, but how about the food crumbs, spillages, dead skin cells and sweat are in these materials during everyday life.

Last but not the least, empty bins!

Sometimes we are too tired to empty the bins, especially when they are full of tissues. Take care of your bins daily, please!

Mold and Mildew… Mildew and Mold… Which one?

Mold and Mildew… Mildew and Mold… Which one?

The term mold and mildew is often used interchangeably. They are similar but not really the same. It is important to understand their similarities and differences before trying to prevent them from happening or clean up or recover after finding them in your residential buildings or work places.

They are fungal forms. The fungus is actually a type of mold. They are members of various  microorganisms which include fungi, algae, rust, yeast, and bacteria. The ability to exist in almost all types of material (as long as there is organic material on it) gives these microorganisms a little bit confusing which is called the main agent of deterioration.

The color and texture of mushrooms and mosses is also a way to distinguish each of them. Active prints are usually red, green, blue and black and tend to be unclear and slimy. The fungus is usually powdery and
is most often grey and white.

While fungus can survive on non-living materials such as tile and plastic as well as on plants, mushrooms specifically look for animal and plant items and especially damage plants.

Apart from certain organic materials that might be present, neither mold nor mildew can hold surfaces where there is moisture. They both prosper in a dark, damp, humid, and poorly-ventilated environment.

Do you know that mold and mildew are odourless and invisible? What are the spots like black, yellow, green? They actually the end result of the digestion of these organisms when they consume the organic food.

Their spreading by sending out massive amounts of spores that are always present in the air and are spread by air currents.

If the spores cannot find moisture, they will remain in the air, lying dormant until moisture occurs.</p>

They can cause many problems for human. Generally, they can bring asthma and allergies, and the mold can cause serious tiresome.


But mold gives the benefit for human in used in the production of some medicines (penicillin), some cholesterol lowering drugs and some immune-suppressant drugs.

It is used in the foods like cheese, soy sauce. Whereas mildew is no benefit at all.

How to Prevent Mold and Mildew?

  • Relative
  • Humidity Control and Monitoring
  • Air Circulation
  • Clean Regularly


What If You Find Mold or Mildew in Your Residential
Buildings or Work Places?

Take out things with mold or mildew on it.


  • With a mildew proofing kill any remaining mold or mildew
  • Vacuuming
  • Replace cardboard containers with plastic bins but make sure to allow the air flow
  • Spray walls with a commercial sprayer containing 10% bleach.

The Carpet Cleaning Methods That You Should Know

The Carpet Cleaning Methods That You Should Know

Wondering how to clean carpets?

There are different types of carpet cleaning methods. You have to be aware the techniques of choosing the methods.

Difficult? Not Really! Let’s start to know one by one… Ready?

Carpet Shampoo

There’s not only our hair that needs the shampoo, carpets do too. Have you ever heard? Or it’s something new for you? It’s the most common one. Actually, it’s about the foam ingredients of the shampoo that can attract the dirt in the carpet, especially when we left it to dry. Once it dries the foam can be brittle and lose itself from the carpet fibers then we just suck it with the vacuum cleaner. At this level, I believe you don’t need the professional.

What else? I should let you know about the strength of the shampoo. Be careful! Otherwise you can

fade your carpet colors. Everything has to be done in moderation, use right amount of the carpet shampoo.

The method of dual processed – Hot water Extraction or Steam Cleaning

What about this method? Let me explain to you.

When you hear about steam cleaning, it doesn’t use steam but it uses the hot water. How hot? It’s around 150 till 200 degree Fahrenheit.
 
How does it work? The hot water pressure is sprayed on the carpet. The high pressure of the hot water may force the dirt to come out and use the vacuum cleaner again to suck it.

This method is also the same with the term of deep cleaning methods for the carpet cleaning. Instead of cleaning fungus, dust mites, and bacteria, the hot water can sanitize the carpet as the prevention of the anti-allergic. Please ask the professional about this kind of methods because they are knowledgeable about the fabric types and the right water temperature.

The Dry Powder Cleaning Methods or Foam Cleaning

No water is needed. The dry powder function is an absorptive material, that is made of detergent, solvent and a little amount of water.

Sprinkle the powder on the carpet you need to be cleaned then use the rotary machine to scrub it. Let it rotate for about 15 minutes after that the dirt will accumulate and use the vacuum cleaner to suck the powder dirt. This method is not wetting your carpet.

Stubborn Stain is on the Carpet.

You dropped something on the carpet. You tried very hard to get rid the stain out from the carpet, but you can’t. Don’t give up!

You should not be worry about it. There must be the solution. It is the most effective method in the carpet cleaning. Here are two quick and homemade methods to get rid of those stains. Mix the liquid detergent with the white vinegar and lukewarm water. Apply this solution on the carpet. Let it dry and scrub it with the brush. Rinse with the warm water… The stain will go away.

There’s also another magic homemade solution that you can make it by yourselves. The ingredients are Lemon, Vinegar and Borax. Mix them and apply it on the stain. Then vacuum the carpet or wash it with the liquid detergent.


What do you think?


Do you still have the difficulties? No time for doing this? Any questions?

Why Stains Might Reappear After Doing the Carpet Cleaning?

Why Stains Might Reappear After Doing the Carpet Cleaning?

This kind of question is often asked by customers.

Actually, this is nothing wrong, one thing you have to understand since people may do it unconsciously when they make the carpet / rugs dirty.

Have you ever thought when you or your kid comes home from work or school with the mud covered your shoes or you kid’s, and you or your kid just wants to rush in the house as quick as possible?

After that you find your carpet color is the color of chocolate pudding, rather than the nice off-white color you much prefer.


Then you clean it as best as you can, with your home cleaning supplies, but it doesn’t change. Feeling hopeless you decide to call your local carpet shampooers the next day, and they come within the next few days. They do the cleaning, foam it up by charging you a couple hundred.

A few days later while waiting for your carpet drying, you notice a kind of crunchy under your feet. You
feel like stepping on the biscuit crumbs. This is actually the mud stains that you or your kid did it in a few days ago, it is still there. Though it may look a few shades lighter, but you can definitely still see the stains there.

Don’t Worry, It Happens to Others, too

These kind of reappearance of spots and stains are common occurrence when the carpet cleaning care uses a traditional method, like soaps, shampoos, and a basic rinse. Once the carpet / rug dries, spots can be seen. Sometimes you may not notice the spots come back until after some time has passed.

Those stains burrow themselves deep within into your carpet’s fibers! And because the carpet cleaning care&nbsp;used the traditional cleaning methods, they couldn’t exactly remove the “things” which had hiding underneath there. Moreover, most of the chemical substances from the shampoo decided to take a spontaneously may stay-action with all the stains and bacteria underneath the carpet fibers.

Then this kind of question crossed your mind, “But I thought I have called the professional carpet cleaning?”

Well, I suppose maybe it was. So why did your spots come back then?

So, I will let you know about RESIDUE.


As a matter of fact, RESIDUE is the most villain for the carpet.

Where does RESIDUE come from? This enemy was created from soaps and detergents. They are often
left behind in the carpet fibers and make stains. The RESIDUE can be stick on the surface of the carpet and even creates the residual crunchy. So, when you step on the carpet you feel like step on the biscuit crumbs.

What else instead of the RESIDUE?

YES, EXACTLY! The mix between RESIDUE and TRAFFIC. I mean it is the traffic areas of the carpet, like
around the doorways and the stairs. That sticky residue is capturing all the dirt and soil in its grasp, and stay deep within the carpet. Just as that residue is catching all of that dirt, at the same time, it is also catching the dust particles swirling around the room. They set onto the carpet, when someone walks over it, it goes deeper into the carpet and leaving behind a new layer of dirt and soil.

What about the vacuuming the carpet?

They are even much too deep in the fibers for spinning brushes to reach. The new dirt coming through
the door, will continue to stick to the detergent residue!

Normal carpet cleaning methods do not have the ability to defeat the residue from the carpets.

How come?

When the shampoo is extracted from the carpets&nbsp;with water, the soil/mud is so deep within the
carpet fibers, it is not 100 percent removed! After extracting, the carpet may look clean on the surface but as it dries, the residual penetrates soil to its way to the surface of the carpet fibers, and suddenly it  reappears a day or two after extracting.

Basically, with these traditional&nbsp;carpet cleaning companies’ methods, they drown the carpets
with too much combination of the soaps and moisture. IT CAN’T BE REMOVED AT
ALL.

We are from Robert Young Carpet Care offers the best carpet cleaning care in Reading, PA

Robert Young Carpet Care&nbsp;Is NOT the only one carpet cleaning companies in Reading, PA. But why us? Because we do something different from the basic carpet cleaners. The spots and stains are much less likely to reappear with our carpet cleaning process. Guess what? We don’t use soap, detergents, or harsh chemicals.

Here is Robert Young Carpet Care want to share something with you….


Are you ready? Let’s go… Let’s find out…


It doesn’t matter the setting, how durable of your hardwood floors, how you have maintained them… but most common ways that people accidentally damage their hardwood floors. So please avoid these things, you will keep your floors in the great shape!


How many of you like Sliding Furniture Around?


It’s the quickest way to scratch up your nice hardwood floors! Make sure add the pads when you are going to move your furniture.


Is it wrong having pets or wear the high heels shoes?


Definitely NOT!!! What’s the matter with the pets? Maybe we are unaware that their nails and claws can scratch the hardwood floors as well as walking with your high heels’ shoes inside the house. Your high heels’ shoes will not only scratch your hardwood flooring but also leave indentations.


So we think you should put off your high heels shoes and trim your pets’ nails and claws. Simple but worth it…


Do you think that the sun ultra violet can threat our skin as well as harm the hardwood floor?


The sun UV rays can make fade your hardwood floors’ color and make them look dull.


So, protect your hardwood floor from directly sunlight. Have the blind drapes and close them when the sun shines so brightly.


Your rug is your investment! That’s really true, but do you know if you put the certain wrong area rugs can leave the stain or discolor your hardwood floors? How come? Yes, because some types of rugs can trap  gases that warp and ruin your floors.


Now vacuum cleaner feature is designed to be used on hardwood flooring, BUT don’t vacuum with the brush on!!! The brush is great for carpet cleaning, YES, SURE but it is not good for the hardwood flooring because it can easily leave behind marks or scratches on hardwood flooring.


Is it wrong to clean the hardwood flooring by ourselves? NO!!


If you are going to do it, please use the correct cleaning tools since the wrong choice of the cleaning tools can damage your hardwood floors and also limit your hardwood flooring appearance and lifespan. Avoid using abrasive tools or harsh cleaning solutions and apply a mild cleaning solution with a soft microfiber mop or mop pad. Use the cleaning products that fit to your hardwood flooring, because now the use of wax or oil for the hardwood flooring is not the right way. They will make the residue and it is hard to get rid of.


Last but not least, you may need the professional help. Why? They are the expert according to their experiences either. You should not clean your hardwood floor monthly but it is better for you to have it twice a year or every six months. By the help of the experts they know how to do it. It helps preserve the value of your hardwood flooring over time, and makes it easier for you to keep it clean afterward! This is the benefit from having your hardwood floors deep cleaned by the professionals at Robert Young Carpet Care. It’s NOT a luxurious maintenance.

Hazmat Cleanup by Robert Young Carpet Care

Hazmat Cleanup by Robert Young Carpet Care

No one can understand when they die. Unfortunately, not everyone lives with the family. What happened when someone dies without anyone knowing it? It's tragic, but it’s happened. It will be found even a few days after the person's death.

We can say this is a type of death without supervision. This is revealed after a few days, several weeks, even several years. Naturally this body decays and the decaying body is very dangerous for anyone around the area and even some days after that occurs; that is why we need a professional cleaning service who handles the cleaning of the location.

Of course the decaying body will emit a smell that is very difficult to recognize, the area around it can be more dangerous because the liquid that comes out of the body. The leakage of the body liquid will attract insects and causes bacteria multiplication. This is very dangerous. This is why it is called the Hazmat  Cleanup. The liquid, the residue, and the pathogen are categorized as Hazmat.

Families and friends of the person that die could hardly recognize their relatives who died. When the body fails to pump oxygen to all the cells in the body, decay occurs very quickly. The nails are longer and the body secretes fluids. Lots of blood is scattered as well as pathogens left in areas that are not visible.

Slime Slime Go Away…

I believe everybody has ever heard / known "Slime". “Slime” is the most in demand by children after the fidget spinner era. The appearance and the texture of the slime is slimy, elastic/chewy, soft, can be shaped as you wish but it is very fun when we play it, just squeeze it or pull it. Slime is believed to relieve the stress. It is not only for the  children but nowadays teenagers and adults are also happy to play Slime.

Slime Slime Go Away…

It gets EVERYWHERE though.


I’m here want to help how to get slime out of the carpets / rugs and everything else.


First of all, I let you know the basic ingredients of the slime then you know what you should do when the slime is unconsciously stuck to the rugs/ carpets or fabrics. Don’t be panic!!!


I can share the information or if you still have the difficulties…


Call Robert Young Carpet Care will help you.


The basic ingredients of slime are liquid soap/shampoo, water, glue and goo sometimes borax.


So how to get of the slime out, we can use the cleaning solution, such as vinegar, warm water, rubbing  alcohol, goo remover, citrus solvent, and WD-40.


The tools are spoon or knife, vacuum, brush, old towel, gloves, and a little bucket for the warm water


Let’s do it… and see how it works…


Ready?


Here we go, follow some steps…


  • Remove the slime first.
  • Remove as much as possible the glob of slime on your carpet. Take the spoon or knife try to scoop the excess of the slime away from the outside to inside or the center area.
  • Use the vacuum
  • Before vacuuming you have to be sure that the slime is dry so it won’t clog the vacuum. Use the vacuum to suck the dried slime as much as possible. Do this in all directions of the areas.
  • Take the cleaning solution. You may choose either vinegar, rubbing alcohol, goo remover, citrus solvent, or WD-40. They can help to remove slime and stains from carpet.


PLEASE PUT ON THE GLOVES TO PROTECT YOUR HANDS FROM THE CLEANING SOLUTION!!!


Ready to go on?


Let’s treat the stain…How?


After choosing the cleaning solution, you can spray or pour on the on the carpet. Saturate all the area. Be careful with the back area of the carpet.


Pour the product (citrus solvent or goo remover) on a towel, make sure use just enough product to wet the slime and stain and press it into the carpet.


Make the cleaning solution soaking and dissolving through the carpet.


Leave it for couple of minutes (more or less 12 minutes) since we are going to penetrate the fibers of the carpet.


What’s next…?


After more or less 12 minutes, take your old cloth or paper towel to wipe away the area.


Don’t do too much scrubbing!


IF THE SPOTS ARE STUBBORN, REPEAT THE PROCESS


Take the old towel, wet it with the hot water to rinse the area of the spot and squish out the excess. Still  with the towel, blot the carpet to remove the cleaning solution residue and the remaining of the slime.


Take a dry towel, press into the carpet to absorb the liquid as much as you can.


Let this area be exposed to the air so it can dry completely.

Can Cushions on the patio be washed?

Can Cushions on the patio be washed? 

“How?”  Hand Wash?  Machine wash?


“When?”

These are the questions that I’m often asked by my customers.


In this article, I am going to share my experiences about those questions.


Spring has just been passed and we are in the summer time.It is a time to clean up the house and as well as our patio. It is a nice spot to sit outside while doing the bbq, eating and sitting there.


First of all, the things that you need to clean is the patio furniture and cushions.


For your information, there are some types of outdoor cushions and also what type of stain do you deal with on the cushions???


Of course, it depends on the type of fabrics and the cleaning equipment you need to use. Most patio  fabrics need to be treated with special coatings to protect from UV rays or water so it’s important to check
any cleaning guidelines on the cushion tags to have specific cleaning


Basically there are many ways you can use to take care of your outdoor cushions:


  • HAND WASH OUTDOOR CUSHIONS
  • MACHINE WASH OUTDOOR CUSHIONS


CAN WE POWER-WASH OUTDOOR CUSHIONS???


HAND WASH OUTDOOR CUSHIONS


Most of the time in the cleaning instructions are not specified. If that so just clean the cushion with the mild dish soap mixed with warm water and put them in a sprayer bottle. Spray the both sides of the cushion wit this solution and make sure to get rid of all the dirt in the grooves and crevices. Let it sit more or less 15 minutes don’t allow dry completely. Stand the cushions on the edge to dry.
instructions and restrictions.


MACHINE WASH OUTDOOR CUSHIONS


You may use the washing machine if you have the removable cushion.


Please be sure to read the all the care instructions mention and follow the recommendations.


  • Shake the cushions before washing to remove the dirt or you may use the vacuum cleaner.
  • As a pre-treat any stains, wash the covers. Allows the covers half dry (slightly damp) to stretch the material back into shape and place them back on the cushions. Please pay attention to have the covers half dry why? In order to avoid them from being shrunk and lose their shape.


CAN WE POWER-WASH OUTDOOR CUSHIONS???


Some of the manufacturers are not recommended, but you still can do it ONLY once or twice each season because it is the quickest cleaning method and we get the excellent results. Ha ha ha…


But you need to remember always use a lower-flow. To let them completely dry, turn the cushions on their sides to dry and flip.

There are also many kinds of “STAINS” that need the special treatments for the patio cusions.


Let’s see on by one:


  • Mold and mildew
  • Bird droppings
  • Oil


Mold and mildew


How to treat the mold and mildew? Use a nylon brush and brush the mildew. Use the microfiber cloth to blot out the stain. Use the water thoroughly and dry completely.


Bird droppings


Prepare the solution of mild dish soap and warm water and put them into the sprayer bottle. Remove as much as possible the bird droppings. Spray on the stains, let the solution soak for awhile in the fabric then use soft bristle brush to clean and remove the stains.


Oil


Where does the oil come from? It comes from the insecticide sprayer, sunscreen and also the food falls onto the cushions.


Soak up any excess oil with a cloth and apply such as cornstarch on the stain. Let it be there for 15 minutes then scrape it with a straight edge. Repeat it if you think you need it. Spray with the solution to get rid of
the stain out then rinse thoroughly with a clean, damp microfiber cloth and dry it.


TIPS n TRICKS TO MAKE YOUR PATIO CUSHIONS LOOK NEW


Having something new is always our wish. Is it right?


We can make the patio cushions look new. We need do more to
make them look NEW


  • DRY BRUSH THEM REGULARLY


This to help cutting down on the stains, mold and mildew, and maintain the fabric.


  • CLEAN UP SPILLS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
  • ROTATE THE CUSHIONS
  • MINIMIZE TO PUT THEM TOO LONG IN THE MOIST
  • PROTECT CUSHIONS WITH A WATER SEALANT.


If you still have the problem with the cleaning…or anything that you wanna know about how to clean your furniture, rugs, carpet, grout, and even pet odor…


Please feel free to ask us.

Deodorizer VS Odor Counteractant???

Deodorizer VS Odor Counteractant???

Hello, here we are again, Robert Young Carpet Care. Lately, we were very often asked by our customers about the smell--- smell--- smell??? The smell that surrounds us. And I answered YES!!! Because it’s SUMMER TIME!!!


Why do people complain about odors more when the weather is humid???


What happens when they turn on the air conditioning?


What is the difference between deodorizer and odour counteractant?


Why is odor counteractant superior?


Approaching the Summer, people complain about many odors. Why? because all of the odors are caused by a high level of humidity so that the smell throughout the house appears. There are various types of odors in the house that are very disturbing, such as pet odor, mildew, mold, fungus, musky, and the smoke of cigarette


Robert Young Carpet Care doesn’t just give the cleaning service only, but based on the knowledge we know, we also like to explain about those. We like to let our customers know exactly what we do in cleaning processes.


First of all, we would like to tell about the difference between the deodorizer and the odor counteractant. Since they like to have nice fragrance for their carpets or rugs.


DEODORIZER basically a substance that masks or neutralizes odors. It does not last long time, maybe it is only for 24 hours.


ODOR COUNTERACTANT is a super-strength and concentrated antiseptic and urinal deodorizer. It is  chemically engineered to react immediately and provide long-lasting effectiveness against pathogenic bacteria and most vile of odors.


It is used for neutralizing and eliminating the most obnoxious foul odors


Are you ready to know more about ODORS?


The humidity intensifies the odor, and they really make strong bad odors.


According to Robert Young Carpet Care, there are some ways of eliminating the humidity – the smell is gone away.


Close all the windows and turn on the Air Conditioner. Why? It’s the easiest way to eliminate the humidity and it means the smell is gone away. It’s simple! Run the dehumidifier – it takes the moisture of the air,
especially for the smell in the basement If the bad odours still exist… This is your time to call
the professional carpet care that can works for it.


So, when Summer is coming, let’s clean the
house, call the carpet cleaning service to do for the things you want to get
rid of. The carpet cleaning service uses the odor counteractant NOT
the deodorizer even both of them means almost the same FRAGRANCE – the nice smell but they are DIFFERENT. Please take a look at above explanations.


We can say that odor counteractant changes of the odor and neuteralize the source of the odor or attack the odor and the bad odor will not come again while the deodorizer we only can get the nice smell for a short time.


Ask your carpet cleaning service what kind of fragrance that they use? Deodorizer or Odor Counteractant because the price of odor counteractant is more expensive than the deodorizer. It can emiminate the bad smell that comes from the cigarretes, rotten food, animals’ waste, the body fluid.


In Robert Young Carpet Care, we give it for free with every cleaning service. We
also make sure we only use the Safe Non-Toxic – EPA Approved Green Products for
cleaning. We don’t want to get poisoned and so as to others (customers).

Why Should Your Cleaning Company Use Fabric Protector?

Why Should Your Cleaning Company Use Fabric Protector?

This question usually is asked by the customers…


Let me explain it.


I believe we want to have our stuffs will be long lasting.


It is similar to how we treat our natural rugs from the moths. Once we killed the moth that was done by the  professional cleaning service, your professional carpet care will apply your rugs with chemical substances in order to prevent moth damage later.


The same idea with it, so that’s why you call your professional cleaning service and they may apply the protector. Why? It helps maintaining the beauty, color and vigor of your furniture. This upholstery protector which is applied by the professional cleaning service will defends your fabric from stains and spills.

How to Remove Cigarette Odors from Home

How to Remove Cigarette Odors from Home

Removing the smell of cigarettes from your home is not an easy task, but with enough work and the right products, it can be achieved. Cigarette smoke, and tar can infiltrate every nook, cranny, and gap in the house and its pungent odor is absorbed into walls, carpets and furniture, so that many of the following steps may have to be repeated before the house will be completely free of the smell.


Ways to Get Rid of Cigarette Smell in Your Home


To remove the smoky smell from your home, you must be diligent in cleaning, repeating the steps in sequence. Doing it this way ensures that you eliminate odors as efficiently as possible.

Step 1: Open Windows and Remove Linen


Open the window on a cool, windy day to clean the house from stale, smoky air and let fresh and clean air enter the house. Remove the curtains and other linen to wash, or replace with fresh linen.


Step 2: Pull the Smell of the Cigarette Out of the Air


Place a glass bowl of vinegar or activated charcoal throughout the room after the window is closed, making sure the bowl is set high enough so that children or pets do not overturn it. Keep the bowl in the room for around 24 hours.


Step 3: Clean the Carpet


Sprinkle the grained dry carpet cleaner on the carpet, wait for about 20 minutes and then suck the granules. In a very smelly room, more than one application is needed.


If you don't have access to sand-grained carpet cleaners, sprinkle large amounts of baking soda on the carpet and on your upholstered furniture. Let baking soda sit overnight and then suck it.


If the odor persists or the color of the carpet or furniture has been changed due to smoke, then use a commercial level steam cleaner with good quality shampoo to clean all upholstered carpets and furniture at home.


Step 4: Clean the Hard Surface Area


Rub hardwood floors, counter top and cabinets with pure white vinegar and a long-lasting cloth. Vinegar will cut the tar and clean the surface. Wear rubber gloves and a face mask to help protect your skin and respiratory system when using pure vinegar.


Step 5: Clean the ceilings and walls


Nicotine and tar stick to the ceiling and walls, so these areas in particular should be cleaned thoroughly if you want to remove the smell of cigarettes from the room. Clean the ceiling and walls with white vinegar that is not diluted, and this will help reduce the smell of cigarettes. If the smell of cigarettes returns after the smell of vinegar is gone, then  apply sealant to the ceiling and walls and repaint the base paint and high-quality paint.


In extreme cases, the smell of smoke can penetrate the dry wall and into the actual frame of the house. If the smell of cigarettes is still clear after sealing and repainting the ceiling and walls, all drywall and insulation need to be replaced and framing underneath is sealed with good quality sealants.


Additional Problem Area


Sometimes, just cleaning carpets, furniture, walls and ceilings is not enough to eliminate odors that come from smoking for years. In this case, you might want to add the following area to your task list:


Complete cleaning and sanitation of your HVAC system (You might want this to be done by a professional)

Replace all electrical outlets, switches and cover plates (plastic can absorb smoke odor)

Replace all grout at home (very absorbent grout, especially when not properly sealed)


When to Call a Professional


If, after you try to clean the house and get rid of odors and still find the smoke smell pervasive, maybe it's time to call professionals. Professional cleaning services use special technology to remove odors from your home. Be sure to get
a reference for someone in your area, and go with a company that specializes in odor removal. Although it's not always necessary to call a professional, some problems with the smell of smoke are so inherent in the home that using professional services may be the only way to get rid of the smell.

5 How To Clean Crusty Ceramic Floors At Home

5 How To Clean Crusty Ceramic Floors At Home

Grout on ceramics does look small. But grout has a large function to support the strength and beauty of ceramics. In the end, the grout that is installed and well maintained will make the floor and walls of the ceramic look more beautiful. In addition, clean grout also supports the health of residents of the house, especially if it is applied to ceramics in the kitchen and the bathroom. Grout as the gap filler between the ceramics has pores, so that dirt is easily absorbed and stays in it.


The dirt can be dust, mold, also liquids from food, drinks or chemicals. Because of that, the grout is easily stained and quickly damaged. In order to maintain the grout, clean the tile floor stains regularly in the right way. Don't ignore grout on ceramic floors and walls in your home. Damaged grouts can interfere with the appearance of space

Clean the House's Ceramic Floor

Mix vinegar and water with a ratio of 1: 1. Apply the solution to the grout using a sponge or sprayer. Then brush the  grout part that needs to be cleaned. Brush with a circular motion. Use a brush that is hard enough, but not a wire brush.
After the grout is clean, rinse with water and dry with a cloth.


You can also use baking soda, especially for dirt that is more difficult to clean. Sprinkle baking soda on the surface of the grout to be cleaned. Allow two to three minutes, after that brush in a circular motion using a toothbrush. After cleaning, rinse with water and dry.


Use steam or hot steam. Currently there is several steam products offered on the market. This method is more effective and easy to do, but requires greater costs. With steam, you just vaporize the area to be cleaned. The dirt on the grout will be lifted on its own. After cleaning, rinse with water and dry.

How to Clean the Crusty Tile Floors

Clean with a soft brush and floor cleaning liquid. Rub it in a medium pressure circular motion. Do it regularly, at least once in two weeks.


Cover the grout surface with a grout sealer. Do it at least once a year to maintain its beauty and durability. Grout sealers are available for the needs of various types of rooms.

How to eliminate the smell of dogs and cats pets

How to eliminate the smell of dogs and cats pets

Having a pet at home is not only fun but can also reduce the stress level of the owner, which provided the pet is well-trained. A trained dog or cat occasionally throws dirt in an improper place in the house, causing unpleasant odors. Cat and dog urine stains cause two problems, which contain disease-causing bacteria and contain ammonia which triggers a stinging smell and it is difficult to remove. In some cases, you need cat or dog urine deodorizing products and how to eliminate cat odors in an effective home.

How to get rid of the smell of cats and dogs from the carpet

Cleanse the dirt left by pets, which is cleansing urine, and eliminating the smell.

Cleanse pet urine

  • Use an old towel to absorb puddles of pet urine. Do this step as soon as possible before the liquid dries. The longer it was left, the urine of animals spread the smell of urine that filled the house and left patches on the carpet. We recommend using an old white towel or other bright color to prevent the color of the towel from splattering on your carpet.
  • Use cat and dog urine deodorizers specifically for carpets. Apply or spray directly on the carpet and leave it to dry. Cat and dog urine deodorizing products contain chemicals specifically designed to kill bacteria in animal waste.
  • As an alternative, mix water and vinegar with comparable doses, then apply or spray on the location of animal urine. Other ingredients that you can use arecolorless mouthwash containing alcohol. Let stand it for about 30 minutes.
  • If you have a vacuum cleaner or other carpet cleaning tool, use it to absorb the remaining moisture that is still attached to the carpet. If not, use an old towel to absorb moisture on the carpet.
  • Let it dry naturally.

Remove the smell of cat and dog pee

  • The smell of urine due to cat and dog urine is very sharp. You need to use a special deodorizing product for pets after removing dirt stains.
  • If ready-made deodorizing products are not available, sprinkle the area that has been cleaned with enough baking powder or coffee powder to cover all parts of animal waste. These ingredients are able to absorb the smell of pet's urine.
  • Let stand for a few hours or overnight to get better results. In the morning, sweep with the broom or put it the remnants of powder with a vacuum cleaner.

What is the best way to clean carpets - vapor vs. chemical


Often we are asked by customers "We have allergies. What is the best way to clean the carpet?"


Carpet cleaning - the best way to clean carpets with steam or chemicals? Both of these are ongoing debates. There are many supporters and critics of each method. The only way to make the right choice for your home is to investigate both methods and find out what they offer. Then you can make decisions based on information about the best way to clean your carpet.


Steam cleaning is known as deep cleansing. That's because this is the only carpet cleaning method that can remove at least 97 percent of the dirt and bacteria from the carpet. This is also the only method that can reach all the way to the lowest layer, or "stack", from your carpet to clean it thoroughly. This makes it the best method for dealing with soil or stubborn stains.


Following is one of the considerations for steam cleaning using water that is heated to very high temperatures; this can take longer for the carpet to dry after treatment. Depending on how good the cleaning extraction system is and how thick the carpet is. In this case it takes 45 minutes to several hours. In some cases, we have seen where the carpet is still damp the next day. If you need access to your room quickly, then you might want to consider using another cleaning method.


Chemical cleaning, as the name implies, involves using a chemical solution to remove dirt from your carpet. Some of these solutions are called "dry" shampoo, even though the term is used easily. They are not, in fact, completely dry but they use far less water than steam cleaning. This means that the carpet that is chemically cleaned generally dries faster because less moisture evaporates after cleaning.


As with steam cleaning, drying time is not the only consideration to apply when considering the subject of carpet cleaning. Because chemical solutions only work on the top layer of the carpet, they are almost completely ineffective in treating deep stains. Also, there is a tendency for some chemical residues to be left on your carpet, which means you and your family can be exposed to these chemicals. Make sure you fully understand what chemicals they use.


For individuals who care about the use of chemicals, steam cleaning can be a better choice.


The method you choose depends on your specific needs and your concerns when using chemicals. Arguments can be made for sides, steam or chemicals. Costs can vary too, so that's another factor that you need to consider. Either way, if you choose a reliable product or service you can be sure of getting good results. Ask your friends and neighbors which carpet cleaning services they use. That is the best way to find professional carpet cleaners.


The steam process carpet cleaners we use here in the office use steam processes and environmentally friendly cleaning solutions. When it's finished, the carpet doesn't just look good, he can tell you how much water he uses and how much he recovers. There are different ways for cleaning, for mild cleaning we will use a steam cleaner that works well for small areas but we do not recommend doing a large carpet area.
Your carpet can make a strong first impression in your home or office, so make sure you treat it properly and keep it clean. Research and find out whether steam or chemical cleaning is the right choice for you. In the end, you will be able to enjoy the clean carpet and that is the best cleaning carpet.


Wishing you to get the best health

YOUR HOUSE SMELLS MUSTY???

We have no doubts about your cleaning skills, but undetected mold can pose a real health risk, especially for elderly people compared to young people, because their bodies cannot stand as younger people and usually they may have other medical problems that interfere with.


Robert Young Carpet Care would like to share some ways to remove mold.


Here are the tools and materials you need to clean your house from moss forever:
First of all when you want to remove mold stains, provide white vinegar first. It can be used safely and can be applied to almost any surface: bathroom and tile fixtures, clothes, furniture, painted surfaces, plastic curtains, and more. To remove heavy moss, use more doses. For mild stains, dilute with the same amount of water. You can also prevent mold from forming on the bottom of the carpet and rugs by spraying white vinegar from a spray bottle. Did you know that there are more than 90 uses of vinegar (white apple cider vinegar or) which can cleanse more than just mildew.


To clean furniture:
You need Ammonia. The trick is: Clean the moss / mildew from wood furniture with a mixture of 1 cup of ammonia, 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1/4 cup of baking soda, and 1 gallon of water. Rinse thoroughly and use an old cloth towel to absorb excessive moisture. (This same combination can clean the painted outer surface.)


To remove the moss / mildew from rattan furniture, wash with a solution of 2 tablespoons of ammonia in 1 gallon of water. Use used toothbrushes to get into hard-to-reach bends and turns. Rinse well and allow air to dry. Important safety notes before you use ammonia at any part of your home: Make sure you use it in a well-ventilated area, always use rubber gloves, and never combine ammonia and bleach.


To clean shower curtains:
Don't throw dirty or moldy shower or liner curtains. Try cleaning it in your washing machine with two bath towels (to prevent the plastic curtain from wrapping the washing machine in a soft setting). Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to your detergent during the washing cycle and 1/2 cup vinegar during the flushing cycle. Before the engine enters the spin cycle, remove the curtain and let it dry; do not place it in a dryer.


Chlorine is another option for getting rid of mold in your bathroom. Wash - along with a few bath towels - in warm water with 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach and 1/4 cup detergent. Let the washing machine run for a few minutes before loading. Insert the bathroom curtain and towel in the dryer at the lowest temperature setting for 10 minutes, then immediately dry. Clean the mold mat from your rubber by soaking it in a 1/8 cup chlorine bleach solution in 1 gallon of water for 3-4 hours. Rinse thoroughly. (Here's how you clean the bathroom.)


To clean the fabric:
To remove mold from the upholstery and other fabric, soak the sponge in a solution of 1/2 borax cup dissolved in 2 cups of hot water, and rub it into the affected area. Let it soak for a few hours until the stain disappears, then rinse well. For the same effect on clothing, soak the clothes in a solution of 2 cups of borax and 2 liters of water. Borax can also make other boring jobs easier.



To clean your bathroom:
The smell of mold and mildew everywhere is the enemy of the bathroom. For that we use: a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Do not mix with water, but immediately by pouring peroxide into the disturbing area. Clean up. Mold and mildew will go away.
To remove mold and mildew between your bathroom tiles, mix the same parts of chlorine bleach and water in a spray bottle, and spray over the nat. Leave for 15 minutes, and then scrub with a stiff brush and rinse. You can also do this just to make your grout look whiter.


To clean outdoor stains:
Bleach can get mildew and other stains off unpainted cement, patio stones, or stucco. Mix a solution of 1 cup chlorine bleach in 2 gallons of water. Scrub vigorously with a stiff or wire brush and rinse. If any stains remain, scrub again using 1/2 cup washing soda (this is sodium carbonate, not baking soda) dissolved in 2 gallons of warm water. While you’re cleaning, you may want to consider giving your patio a makeover.


To clean paint surfaces:
For painted surfaces and siding, bleach is your answer, again. Make a solution of 1/4 cup chlorine bleach in 2 cups of water and apply with a brush to mildewed areas. Let the solution set for 15 minutes, then rinse. Repeat as necessary. Check out these other smart uses for bleach around the house.


To clean clothing:
Wash mildew out of washable fabrics. Wet the mildewed area and rub in some powdered detergent. Then wash the garment in the hottest water setting permitted by the clothing manufacturer using 1/2 cup chlorine bleach. If the garment can’t be washed in hot water and bleach, soak it in a solution of 1/4 cup oxygen bleach (labeled “all fabric”) in 1 gallon warm water for 30 minutes before washing.


If you’re short on chlorine, make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it on the affected area. Then, dry the clothes in sunlight. Repeat the process until the stain is gone. This works well for rust stains on clothes too. (Here’s why you always need lemons in your house.)


To clean hard to reach spots:
There are always hard-to-reach spots in the bathroom, usually around the fixtures, where mildew may breed in the grout between tiles. Forget about becoming a contortionist to return the sparkle to those areas. Soak a few cotton balls in bleach and place them in those difficult spots. Leave them to work their magic for a few hours. When you remove them, you’ll find your job has been done. Finish by rinsing with a warm-water wash.

The Easy Maintenance For Natural Wool Carpet and Rugs

Having the nicest natural wool carpet and rugs are one of the investments. However, there is no one carpet and rugs that last forever or 100% without stains. But with regular care you can add to your carpet and rug's validity period.


Both carpet and rugs that is properly treated increases the interior appearance and atmosphere. To protect investment on both and to make their life longer, it is important to clean them regularly and in the futures, rather than wait until they are very dirty and dull.


Maintaining the beauty of the wool carpet and rugs are very easy - in fact, it is much easier than most people think. Wool fibers are unique and have a complex structure that releases soil up to 25% easier than synthetic fiber carpets and rugs. Because basically, the natural resistance of wool fibers gives you time to do something because of a liquid spill. Wool and rugs can hold liquid bit longer, before seeping deeper.


There are three basic steps to protect your infestation:
1) Vacuum regularly
2) Clean spills immediately
3) Clean with hot water extraction (for residential use, every one or two years)


The cleaning method varies depending on fiber, the most important thing you can do for your carpet as well as rugs is to vacuum them frequently and thoroughly, especially in the high traffic areas. Vacuum not only lasts long their life, but also improves the appearance.


After your carpet or rugs is placed, lightly vacuum often in the first week to remove surface lint, dust and feathers. After that continue to vacuum thoroughly at least weekly and more often at high traffic area. This will remove soil and sand before working under the surface of the pile where it is much harder to remove and can make them become ugly, fade in appearance. For areas affected by light, it is only three times vacuum. While for very dirty areas five to seven times the vacuum is needed. Suction dust first towards the direction of the natural pile of lifting piles helps to remove dirt and sand, but it cannot reduce webbing. When finishing, vacuum in the direction of the lying stack to achieve a uniform finish.


To clean the carpet and rugs effectively, use only the proper quality of the vacuum cleaner. Vacuums equipped with a micro filter system ensure fine particles (such as dust mites’ allergens) removed and remain in the bag collection (especially important if you are sensitive in dust). A vacuum with a rotating brush that shakes the stack and loosens the best ground for a low piece of carpet pile. To prevent excessive fuzzing, turn off the brush, or replace the head when sucking in a loop of piles, pieces / circles of piles or barber rugs.


Make sure the vacuum is kept in good mechanical condition and the brush is cleaned and replaced when worn.


Check and adjust the height of the beater regularly to ensure the carpet or rugs does not experience severe damage. Change or empty the dust collection bags often and replace filters as suggested by the manufacturer.

HOW DO I REMOVE COFFEE OR STAINS FROM MY LIGHT COLORED WALL TO WALL CARPET?

This is a question we get asked quite often as it is a very common problem.

First an explanation. Coffee or tea are very acidic by nature. This means that they tend to leave a light brown or yellow spot if left to dry.

What you will need are two things. A small bottle of white vinegear and a clean white towl or rag. Open the vingear and soak one end of your towl with the white vinegear.only use white vinegear.

Wipe the vinegear over the entire spot and overlapp a little over the edges . You can wipe in a up and down moation or a circular one whatever works best for you. Make sure to cover the entire spot and take a finger and touch part of the spot to make sure it is moist. It should be moist but not too wet.then wait about 5 minutes for the vinegear to neutralize the spot.make sure you have a fan or some airflow(open a window) to vent the vinegear odor. You will see the spot gradually get lighter and lighter. Magic hugh. The final step fold your towl in quarters and place a dry portion of it directly over the spot. Take your entire body weight and step on the towl to remove as much excess moisture as possible. Repeat untill the spot is nearly dry. This should remove the spot completely. If not wait till the spot is dry and repeat the process. Usually twice is sufficient if it does not come out the first time. Great job well done-coffee or tea spots are easily removed.
