If you like to enjoy a morning cup of coffee in the car as you drive to work, start your errands or drop the kids off at school, you’re not alone. But, because we’re all human, this multitasking can sometimes lead to coffee spills on the carpets.

Don’t worry! This step-by-step guide can help you clean those stains right up. But, as Autoblog.com indicates, the method varies based on whether you drink your coffee with milk or not.

Note: Do not attempt to clean up any spills while driving. Wait until you have stopped your car to perform the steps below.

Step 1: Blot Spill

Soak up as much of the spill as possible, as soon as possible, using a towel and pressure from the palm of your hand or fist. This may help keep the spill from spreading, says Autoblog.com

Step 2: Make a DIY Vinegar Cleaner

If your coffee was black, or contained no milk, Autoblog.com suggests mixing a solution of 1/3 white vinegar to 2/3 water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto the stain and blot again with a clean towel.

If you drink your coffee with milk, you’ll need to complete an extra step in this process. Prior to applying the vinegar mixture to the stain, you should first use a spray bottle to apply a mixture of a teaspoon of enzyme detergent and a cup of water, says Autoblog.com. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, using a towel, blot up the spot and use a light brush agitation if needed. This extra step helps to break up the protein stain from the milk, according to the site.
