Things you should not use on your carpets!

Salt

Some people use salt on the carpets to try and soak up a spillage such as red cordial. Please don’t do this as salt is sometimes used in the carpet dying process and using it on a stain such as red cordial will drive the colour on to the fibre and probably make it permanent.
