How To Remove Bleach Stains From Your Carpet?

If you use bleach, for example, when doing your laundry or cleaning your bathroom then you have most likely spilled some on the floor unintentionally. I have done that too since I am pretty clumsy. Unfortunately, I have incredible carpets at home that are very expensive – and I have spilled bleach on them.

Of course, I started to panic and didn’t know what to do. Thankfully, the previous day I had booked a cleaning company to clean my entire home – and I immediately grabbed the phone and called them for advice. The team over at were kind enough to guide me through a few cleaning methods that will get rid of the bleach stain through the phone – and today, I wanted to share what they told me with you. It’s very valuable information that can help some of you out there!

How To Remove Bleach Stains From Your Carpet?


– The First Method

As soon as you spill the bleach, grab a paper towel and start blotting. You need to absorb as much of the bleach as possible but be careful and do not rub, scrub, or apply too much pressure because you can make an even bigger mess and spread the bleach.

Then mix half a tablespoon of liquid dish soap with a cup of water and directly pour the mixture over the stain. Let it sit for a couple of minutes so the carpet can start to try a bit then grab a sponge and gently rub.

And finally, rinse with cold water and dry with a clean cloth!


– The Second Method

The next method they told me involves white vinegar. Mix 4 cups of warm water with 2 tablespoons of white vinegar. In general, you shouldn’t mix bleach and vinegar, however, when you use so little it won’t be a problem.

Pour the mixture over the affected area and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then rub the area with a sponge. Repeat a few times if the stain still remains.

Then rinse with cold water!


– The Third Method

Now, the third method is very weird but if nothing else works – you should try it out. Blot the area with a damp cloth then find a crayon that matches the colour of your carpet. Yes, you will colour your carpet with a crayon in order to hide the bleach stain!

When you are done, grab a damp cloth and gently wipe the crayon marks so you can help them blend better!
