Blowing bubbles helps youngsters develop motor skills.

Most young children are delighted to blow bubbles. Since youngsters are also prone to spills, you may find bubble liquid spilled on your carpet. Most bubble-blowing liquids are composed of water, glycerin and soap. If left on your carpet, this mixture will dry and leave a sticky residue. This residue, in turn, will attract dust, dirt, and possibly even mildew. You can remove bubble liquid from your carpet with a little time and effort.


Step 1

Blot the area dry with a white towel.

Step 2

Wet a cloth or sponge with hot water and dab it onto the spill to break up the soapy residue.

Step 3

Blot the area dry with a clean towel.

Step 4

Alternate dabbing the area with a wet sponge and blotting it dry, until the bubble liquid residue is gone.
