How to clean up after a spaghetti sauce spill

We all like to envision a relaxing dinner time, when in reality with kids it’s like feeding time at the zoo. If the dish contains bright red sauce and spaghetti, keeping things civil can be tougher than food shopping with a toddler in a trolley with a dodgy wheel. While instilling life skills such as eating by themselves is thrilling for us parents…it can be even more so, if you feel equipped to clean up the mess afterwards.

There is a lot of talk these days about super foods, what people don’t realise is that some foods have actual super powers – spaghetti being one of them. It can fly, pretty fast too if thrown by a frustrated toddler, add in some pasta sauce and it can reach speeds faster than any jet.

However recent studies have shown (not really) that the main culprits of spaghetti sauce spills on carpet are in fact adults, who find it difficult to aim for their mouth while scrolling through their phone. Whatever the reason for the mess on your carpet, we’re here to help you!

Below is a simply yet effective guide to removing a spaghetti sauce spill on carpet

Method 1

Like with every stain, it’s best to get working on it as soon as possible. Most pasta sauces are red and contain food dye that can discolour your carpet if left.

  • Remove all the loose pasta before getting to work on the stain.
  • Mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid with two cups of cool water.
  • Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution. Be sure not to scrub the stain as this will work it further into the carpet and can damage the carpet fibres.
  • Blot until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Rinse with cool water so no residue is left behind.

Be sure to wear protective clothing and test the solution on an inconspicuous area of carpet first.

  • Mix together one tablespoon of ammonia with 1/2 cup of cool water. Never mix chlorine bleach and ammonia – this could cause hazardous fumes!
  • Sponge the stain with the ammonia solution.
  • Blot until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Sponge with cold water and blot dry to remove the ammonia solution.
