Picture this: you've just enjoyed a delightful cheese fondue night with friends, but as the festivities wind down, you spot a stubborn gooey cheese stain on your beautiful carpet. Panic not!

The first key to effective cheese stain removal is to act swiftly. The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to clean. Grab a butter knife or spoon to gently scrape off any excess cheese, taking care not to push it deeper into the carpet fibers or damage carpet fibers.

Step 2: Blot, Don't Rub

Before you start to vacuum, it's essential to blot the stain and remove as much residue as possible. Use a clean, white cloth or paper towel to absorb as much of the grease and cheese as possible. Remember, don't rub; this will only spread the stain. Gently press down and lift the cloth repeatedly until you've removed as much cheese as you can.

Now, it's time to bring in the heavy artillery – your Kirby vacuum cleaner. Ensure your HEPA filter bag isn't full, as a full bag may compromise your vacuum's effectiveness. Replace or empty it if necessary.

Step 4: Vacuum Crumbs & Debris

Depending on what you are cleaning, attach the power nozzle or hose attachment to your Kirby. Adjust the height of the nozzle to match your carpet's thickness. Slowly and systematically vacuum the cheese stain, making multiple passes if needed. This will help remove any remaining cheese particles and residue from the carpet fibers.

Step 5: Apply Kirby Multi-Purpose Spot Remover plus OXY

For stubborn or aged cheese stains, you may want to consider using Kirby Multi-Purpose Spot Remover with OXY. Simply apply the spot remover to the stain then blot the stain away. Always read the product label, follow cleaning directions, and test in an inconspicuous area before applying.   

Step 6: Final Vacuuming

Once you've treated the cheese stain, give the area time to dry then thoroughly vacuum with your Kirby. This helps ensure that any remaining traces of cheese are eliminated, and your carpet looks uniform and clean.

Thanks to your Kirby vacuum cleaner, gooey cheese stains don't stand a chance! With a little quick thinking and the right approach, you can keep your carpets looking pristine. Remember, acting fast, blotting, and using your Kirby vacuum with care are the keys to successfully removing cheese stains.
