Stains: How to Remove Tomato Sauce from your Carpet

Date posted: 24 November 2016

Tomato sauce stains will come out of carpets, whether they are synthetic / man made or natural – and in general you will achieve excellent results with a readily-available household ingredient: washing up liquid.

Follow the steps below to get rid of a tomato sauce stain:

  1. Scrape off any excess tomato sauce from the surface of the carpet. Avoid pushing it deeper into the carpet fibres, or spreading the stain any further.
     
  2. Mix up two cups of cool water with one tablespoon of washing up liquid.
     
  3. Using a small amount of this soap solution on a clean cloth, blot at the stain repeatedly until you have absorbed as much of the tomato sauce as you can. Avoid over-wetting the carpet – use only as much of the solution as you need.
     
  4. Repeat step 3 until the tomato sauce stain has gone completely.
     
  5. Use a small amount of cold water and a different clean cloth to gently blot the area, removing any remaining cleaning solution.
     
  6. Blot the whole area dry.

You can also follow the steps above if you need to remove tomato sauce from an item of upholstery.

For stubborn stains

If you are still left with a stain on your carpet despite your best efforts with the washing up liquid solution, you can try ammonia – although remember that this case cause damage to natural fibre carpets such as wool, so it will not be suitable on all materials.
Simply mix up a solution of one tablespoon of ammonia with two cups of warm water, and use this to clean in the same way as you tried with the washing up liquid solution.
