Full Answer

  1. Pour water on the stain

    As soon as the spill occurs, pour a little bit of water onto the stain to dilute the coffee. Do not completely soak the area. Pour just enough water to dilute the spill.

  2. Dab up the water

    Using a clean towel or a cloth, dab up as much of the diluted spill as you can. Do not rub the area or risk making the stain worse. Dabbing the area with an absorbent cloth works best.

  3. Repeat the process

    Repeat the diluting and dabbing steps until all or at least a majority of the spill is gone. Stop when you no longer see evidence of the spill.

  4. Use carpet stain remover

    Follow the directions on the label of your preferred carpet stain remover to remove any leftover traces of the spill. If you are using a product you have never used before, be sure to spot test a small area of your carpet before you perform this step.
