Dried in Carpet stains

Do you have a dried caked in stain? Even if you havenít found that accident or spill right away you can still work it out. Using a mixture of vinegar, dish soap and water, wet your rag or cloth and press into the stained area. Blot the area dry with a clean cloth and repeat until you have lifted the stain! You can get out dried stains like blood, wine, coffee, chocolate, ketchup, kool aid and even tea using this method!

Fresh stains or dried stains - you can get them up using shaving cream pushed into the carpeting. The shaving cream bubbles and pushing the particles to the surface so you can blot them right off.

Another method that you can try is dabbing the area with a clean cloth with a little bit of hydrogen peroxide on it. Dab the area and then rinse the area with cold water and vacuum when dry for a great stain free clean.

If you don't have any hydrogen peroxide in the house, try a paste of cream of tartar and cool water to loosen a stain. Spread this over the carpet area, and rinse with a dabbing of cool clear water with a clean cloth to lift stains in the carpet.
