  • Club soda? lol. kindof ironic. I borrowed my sister's mean green machine stain remover. It worked wonders.

  • Good Luck.... I have an orange crush stain from 12 years ago on an oriental rug.... I tried the steam cleaner thing, I tried, resolve, I tried everything.... apparently that crap doesn't come off of wool!

  • This is just a suggestion. If club soda doesn't work, and most stain removers don't work, maybe talking to a "dry cleaner" person to see what they use. You would be surprised at some of the home remedies that work wonders, and cost pennies to get.

  • You can try a vinegar solution, 1/3 cup white vinegar 1/2 cup water, try behind sofa or some place per removing a color first. I have also use a solution from the grocery store that also got a really bad black something out after yrs called Folex, it's also at Lowes..
