Removing Gatorade from a rug

January 19, 2016

rug cleaning a gatorade stain in a rugOver 99 years, we’ve seen just about every stain in a rug you can imagine. So what’s the most difficult one to get out? It’s sure to surprise you.

It’s not blood. It’s not wine. It’s not from your dog or cat. It’s actually…Gatorade!

Orange and red Gatorade are both very challenging because of a certain synthetic dye used, the same kind of dye that’s used in maraschino cherries (by the way, don’t ever drop maraschino cherries on a rug or your clothes if you can avoid it too). 

In fact, we’ve had 2 Gatorade experiences in the last few months, both in which customers brought in rugs after a child spilled orange Gatorade on them. The splash was unbelievable.

Fortunately, with the success we had in cleaning, nobody was able to tell there was a spill at all. The results were remarkable.

When you buy from HC Nahigian, you’re not just buying a better rug. You’re buying peace of mind, thanks to an in-house team with the technical expertise to keep your rug’s appearance well intact – for those times when, you know, life happens.

So don’t panic. Call HC Nahigian & Sons at 847.676.2500 and let’s talk about the challenge you’re having with your rug thanks to a toddler, dog or last night’s dinner party. If anybody can bring it back to a state you’re very happy with, it’s our highly skilled team of repair specialists.
