All true coffee addicts are familiar with the brown, ring-shaped coffee stains sometimes left behind by their daily brew. They’ll find them on newspapers and magazines, coffee tables, desks, and papers. The most clumsy coffee drinkers (and the simply unlucky) sometimes spill their coffee onto the carpet as well. When treating a coffee stain on carpet, it’s important to act quickly or the stain will sink into the carpet fibers and dry, setting and becoming much harder to treat.
