Phone calls from customers about a stain from the Christmas tree skirt

Christmas Tree Skirt Dye Stain Removal

Christmas Tree Skirt Stain

Procedure for removing this stain is often found on the carpet after the Christmas Tree has been taken down:

This stain is found after the Christmas Tree has been taken down. Many felt skirts used underneath Christmas Trees have rich green and red colors which tend to bleed color to the carpet below. The tree skirts are loaded with excess dye that can stain carpets permanently. Stains can happen from water overflowing when filling the tree stand, causing the skirts to get wet, putting the excess dyes into the rug. Additionally, if this was a tree that was frequently over watered, there may also be some mold under the skirt!

  1. First, simply prespray with Preface® and extraction clean the area.
  2. Then using a clean, white towel, blot with rubbing alcohol.
  3. Then treat the area with Stain Magic®. Cover the treated area with a clear plastic and allow to dry overnight. This should also remove any mold that may have developed under the skirt.
  4. Frequently, the stain won’t come out because the consumer has already set the stain with an acid-based stain remover or vinegar!
  5. Of course, a tree skirt should never be cleaned - it would shrink and bleed since it’s usually made of felt.
