There are many ways to deal with stains. First, you should scoop up as much as possible of the affected area with a blunt knife or spoon. Then, dilute the area with water. However, be careful not to soak the stained area, as this could accidentally spread the stain. With a cloth, gently work from the outside of the stain to the center and continue until the stain is gone.

  • Crushed Pile
You move your furniture that’s been in the same place for years, and what do you have there? A crushed pile. How do you get your pile to sit upright again? You'll need a soft brush and some water, just enough to dilute the area. Moisten the affected area and then gently brush the pile. Repeat until restored.
