  • I don't think it will, but we only have a few small rugs... we did this approach and didn't do any permanent damage to anything, and I know plenty of moms have done it with wall-to-wall carpet.

  • My 3 yr old took his pee and dumped it on the carpet. I hurried up and got some carpet cleaner and went to work and it didn't stain at all. My carpet is the color of light caramel.

  • uhhh! im right there with ya! we are trying that approach with my son too. so far-we have no stains and we have a khaki colored carpet. if i notice he makes a mess, i spray it with a carpet stain remover immediatly. good luck! i hope it goes better for you than it is for me. lol
