28. Get rid of carpet stains with an iron and a damp rag
Do your carpets have stubborn stains that just won’t budge? With just a few household items and a little bit of elbow grease, you can wave goodbye to those pesky marks. Firstly, give the offending area a good spritz with vinegar, then place a damp rag on top of the stain.
Here’s where things get interesting: fire up your iron and use its steam setting to work its magic on the damp rag. Voila! The steam will help lift the stain right out of the carpet fibers. But wait, before you start creating your masterpiece on the carpet, be warned that this trick is only effective on dirt and food stains, and not synthetic dyes or paints. So, save the carpet painting for another day and get to steaming those pesky stains away!
