With the primary ingredients being buttermilk, mayonnaise, garlic, salt, onions, and a variety of spices and herbs, this delicious addition is including at parties, get-togethers, meals, and other events.

With the unsightly stains marring your carpets, you will soon dread looking at your carpets and even an otherwise immaculately cleaned room will look disheveled with stained carpets. Below we at DM Carpet Cleaning would like to list a guide on how to remove the ranch dressing/dip stain.

How to Get Ranch Salad Dressing Out of Carpet
1) Remove as much of the bulk as you can off the carpet. You need to avoid smashing it into the carpet as you or spreading it out further. Carefully use your spoon or butter knife to scoop up the chunks and wipe it on the paper towels for easy disposal.
2) Apply the carpet stain remover according to the label’s directions. If you prefer the cleaning solution, combine a tsp non-bleach laundry detergent with a quart of warm water and apply to the stain without over saturation. Before treating the stain, perform a patch test in an inconspicuous area to test to ensure the carpet will not be compromised.
3) Let the DIY solution set for at 5 minutes to the ranch dressing residue area on the carpet. The solution should be permitted to set long enough breakdown the substance to ensure the residues are easily removed and the spot is successful.
4) With a clean damp, white cloth, blot the residues away from the carpet. Start patting the spot on the outer edges and work towards the center for better containment and removal. Continue this process without incorporating any rubbing or scrubbing during your technique.
5) Use dry paper towels to remove the excess moisture after the stain is removed. Afterwards, apply pure water on top of the area and use a clean, dry white towel to remove all the water and get the area as dry as possible to ensure all the cleaner’s residues are also removed from carpet’s surface.
