I don’t know about you but I love tomato sauce on everything. It disgusts my husband watching me ‘ruin’ meals with it but I can’t help it – it’s my favourite.
Hubby insists that if my saucy indulgence drops onto the carpet, it will cause a permanent stain. I thought I’d look into it, in a good natured effort to prove him wrong!
butter knife or similar blunt scraping tool
paper towels or clean white cloths or towels
dry cleaning cloths
Scrape off excess sauce gently with a butter knife. Be careful not to spread the stain further during this step. Take your time.
Ironically lemon, a much healthier condiment choice than tomato sauce, is a fantastic cleaning weapon to use during this process. Squeeze the lemon onto a clean white cloth and dab the juice onto the stain. Roll your finger across the stain, taking care not to rub too hard. You will need to repeat this step several times.
Rinse the area with some cold water to remove sticky sauce residue (I’m told it’s loaded with added sugar).
Dry the area by patting it with another clean cloth or paper towel. To dry the area a little quicker, place a fan adjacent to the damp area and let it blow for a few hours.
