Chocolate Carpet Stain

How to remove Chocolate stain?

Important Things to Keep in Mind:

  • Start with Goo Gone.
  • Freeze any solid material with an ice cube, then remove as much as possible with a spoon or dull knife.
  • Use a white towel or paper towel to remove stains.
  • Start with warm water, but you can use a cleaning solution if that doesn’t work.
  • Blot outside in to prevent spreading! DON’T rub, scrub or use a brush! This will ruin carpet fibers.
  • For abnormally large stains, you may not be able to remove it yourself. Call a professional cleaner for excessive stains.


  1. Start with Goo Gone, following the directions on the package.
  2. Stir together a solution of ¼ teaspoon clear dish soap and 1 cup warm water.
  3. Apply the solution to a white towel or paper towel and gently blot the stain.
  4. Frequently turn the cloth as you blot, and try not to get the carpet too wet. Use your fingertips to work the cleaner to the base of the stain.
  5. Rinse the fibers by wetting the stained area with lukewarm water.
  6. Dry the area by vacuuming or leaving a white or paper towel on top of the stained area with a weight on top. Continue to change towels until the carpet has dried.

Extra Steps if Stain Remains:

  1. Mix another solution of ½ cup white vinegar and 1 cup lukewarm water
  2. Use this solution to blot the area like before, but use only a white towel instead of paper.
  3. After blotting, neutralize the ammonia with a final solution of ½ cup white vinegar and 1 cup lukewarm water.
  4. Apply the solution, blot, and rinse as before. Dry as before.
