  • Oxyclean is prefect, but be sure and buy the carpet one. I thot I'd be real thrifty and use the one for clothes and it ended up making greasy spots on the white-ish carpet in the condo we leased. Not good. The owner accused of allowing our dog to pee aaaallll over the carpet, but it simply the oxyclean for clothes. The one for made for carpet takes out the stains quickly and throughly. :)

  • spray and wash with resolve, it's for laundry but works just as well on carpet.

  • I saturate the spot with boiling water, then dab it up with a old rag or towel, then use a cleaner on it, whatever I have on hand mostly. I usually get my carpet proffesionally cleaned twice a year too.
