The main thing to remember with any beverage spill on the carpet is to clean it up as quickly as possible. The longer it sits on the carpet surface, the more liquid will seep down into the carpet fibers. It will be more likely to leave a stain if it is left to dry, especially if it remains on the carpet for a long time.

Blot up the grape juice spill with a soft, white cloth, or a clean, old towel. Use paper towels if you find them more convenient. But take care to blot gently, so that you do not push the grape juice further down into the carpet. Then proceed with one of the following cleaning methods.

Professional Method To Get Grape Juice Out Of Carpet

We always recommend the use of professional carpet care products to clean up any mess. This is true for grape juice spills as well. Because it is a liquid, it will very quickly start to seep into the carpet fibers. 

To clean deep down into the fibers and remove the juice effectively, we suggest that you use our Ultimate All-Fiber Rinse carpet cleaning solution. This deep-cleaning miracle product leaves your carpets with a fresh scent and is available in original citrus or the new “sweet breeze” variant.

Home Remedy For Cleaning Grape Juice From A Carpet

If you don’t have carpet cleaning products at home, you can use a home remedy to clean up the juice. You will need the following items:

  • A tablespoon of mild, bleach-free liquid dish soap
  • Warm water, about 2 cups 
  • A mixing bowl
  • A plastic spray bottle
  • An old, clean towel

Step 1

Mix a tablespoon of the liquid dish soap with 2 cups of slightly warm water in a bowl. Once you have a mild, soapy solution, add it to the spray bottle.

Step 2

Spray this soapy solution onto the grape spill area. Then blot it up with the old towel. Repeat this action until all the juice has been removed. Discard any remaining dish soap solution, and fill the spray bottle with clean tap water.

Spray the same patch of carpet, again, and once again blot the moisture up, but with the other (dry) old towel. This is necessary to remove any dish soap residue. Allow the carpet to dry naturally.
