Spaghetti Sauce Stain Removal From Upholstery

Step 1: Scrape off any excess spaghetti sauce from the upholstery, taking care not to spread the spot further.

Step 2: Mix a solution of two cups cool water and one tablespoon dishwashing liquid.

Step 3: Using this solution, sponge the stain with a clean white cloth.

Step 4: Next, blot at it until the liquid is absorbed.

Step 5: Repeat steps 3-4 until the spots are removed from the upholstery.

Step 6: Now that the stain is removed you should get plain cold water and a new white cloth and sponge the area to remove the cleaning solution, and then blot dry.

Hint: Be sure to get the upholstery only as wet as necessary to remove the stain.

You can also try vinegar for spaghetti stain removal, but be careful on upholstery to test first in an inconspicuous location to make sure the vinegar will not discolor the upholstery fabric.

You can get more information on how to clean upholstery here.

Spaghetti Stain Removal From Carpet

The instructions for removal of stains caused by spaghetti sauce from carpet is the same as for upholstery.

However, if you don't have luck with this stain removal method above you can also do something additional with the carpet stain, which is to mix a solution of one tablespoon of ammonia with two cups warm water, and use this as a stain removal solution.

CAUTION: Since vinegar is an acid and ammonia a base, using one after the other in attempting to remove stains will just neutralize the effects of both. Therefore, thoroughly rinse away one stain removal solution before using another.

Judith - don't worry about it until after you get back from holidays. I don't want to burden you with looking for this before your holiday.

"Hairspray, works great on almost everything, I used it on an ink stain, it came out after 2 applications, and believe me it was dark blue ink all down the front of my blouse, I thought I'd ruined my blouse beyond repair...but with 2 good doses of hairspray it came out. Yeah...
