A reader inquires about cleaning up a smelly beer stain on carpeting. Here’s what Joel had to say: “Top ‘O the day—what a sad waste of Guinness! You’ll want to treat it right away, blotting up as much as you can with paper towels until no more liquid comes up. Then, mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 3 drops of dish soap with 2 cups of luke-warm water in a bowl or bucket (measurements are approximate). Dip an absorbent white cloth into the soapy solution, wringing out some of the liquid. Dab the area, working from the outside edges toward the center. Rinse the cloth frequently, dipping it back into the soapy water and wringing it out before another application. Air dry completely. For a large spot you may need a ceiling or portable fan to hasten drying. If an odor remains after drying, sprinkle the cleaned area with baking soda. Vacuum after 30 minutes or so to remove the powder. Repeat the baking soda treatment if needed….Remember, spots and stains can be tricky, and certain cleaners and techniques can cause permanent damage.
