Mum shares carpet stain removal tip after everything else fails

One mom shared a clever tip for removing stubborn carpet stains after everything she tried didn’t clean up the spill.

Lisa Youell had even tried professional cleaners to remove a deep red stain from her stairs when her youngest daughter accidentally dropped red toy sand on the gray carpet.

After trying every possible method to remove the stain, the mother of four gave up their attempts and asked a craftsman to replace the carpet with a remnant.

But the handyman she contacted to remove the carpet passed on a brilliant hack that made it look as good as new, reports YorkshireLive.

Instead of replacing the carpet, the craftsman asked if she had tried using WD-40.

Lisa is not sure about the tip, but has nothing more to lose. She tried and shared the incredible before and after results on Facebook when she raved about the hack.

She wrote: “We just had our local handyman close by to replace a piece of our carpet that was stained with kiddie-colored sand.

The handyman told her to use WD-40

“He told me to use WD-40, I did and I didn’t even have to scrub it! It took me 5 seconds to rub it off!

“I had the carpet professionally cleaned and used numerous detergents as recommended by the toy company when I made a complaint, and good old bleach didn’t even remove it!”

“Thanks for your top craftsman tip! Share this post for all the other poor carpets that have been destroyed by slime and colored sand.”

She added, “This time of year there are so many new toys and people knocking things over and staining and ruining carpets.

“I would never have thought of the WD-40, but most people have it in their home and it’s definitely worth trying.”
