Get ice cream out of your rug or carpet in 9 easy DIY steps

You thought you were safe from the dangers of ice cream stains. You had it covered with your rug, and it was all going well until your dog started licking the floor (again).

Oh no! You just realized that there's a big stain on your rug. And it's not even something you can hide with a tablecloth!

But don't worry! We're here to help you remove that stain and get back to enjoying your ice cream in peace.

Here are 9 easy steps to removing ice cream stains from your rug:


  1. Scoop up spill with a spoon.
  2. Using a clean towel, blot up as much moisture as possible. Working from the other edge toward the center of the stain, blot or brush light. (Rubbing will spread the stain.) Do not apply a spot remover until you have done a thorough job of blotting.
  3. Apply a dry cleaning fluid with a clean dry cloth. Do not soak. To prevent spreading the stain or causing a ring when using the cleaning solvents, always blot or burhs lightly from the outer edge towards the center of the stain (especially for pile carpets).

  6. Apply water and blot
