One of the most significant dates in the UK has arrived – National Fish and Chip Day 2021. Not only is fish and chips the most popular British take-away food, but it essentially had a cultural significance in keeping the nation going through the two world wars. Whether you’re excited to catch up with your friends or follow the family tradition of eating fish on Fridays, these moments are perfect for reconnecting in the wake of restrictions easing across the UK. However, fish and chips are greasy (and smelly) meals that are often eaten by hand… so here’s how to remove common stains from carpets and furniture with 1001.


How to Remove Grease Stains from Carpets and Furniture

Your guests may accidentally touch the sofa or even you’re brand-new furniture addition with greasy fingers. No matter how you, your friends and family eat fish and chips, grease stains on carpets may be caused by toppings falling down such as vegetables as well as fish and chips. Hence, you’ll need 1001 Carpet Stain Remover if a few bits finish on the ground.

Our specially formulated spray cleaners are made so that you don’t need to interrupt the flow of conversation to clean. It works deep down into the fibres to remove grease stains from carpets and even helps protect your carpet (or upholstered surface) from new stains. Here’s how:

  1. Blot the stain as soon as possible with a kitchen towel to get rid of as much of the grease as you can.
  2. Apply 1001 Carpet Stain Remover and wait for a maximum of 5 minutes (make sure you test an inconspicuous area first to ensure there are no discolouration/other issues).
  3. Massage the product into the stained area.
  4. Remove excess liquid with a dry cloth.
  5. Leave the area to dry, then vacuum.

It’s as easy as that, now you can continue celebrating National Fish and Chip Day!
