  • What is the stain?

  • This info was for wine stains, but can work for grape juice or koolaid.


    lot the spill with paper towels or a clean cloth.

    Combine 1 teaspoon carpet shampoo (or dish soap, like Dawn) and 1 cup hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Soak a clean sponge in the mixture, squeeze it halfway dry, then gently blot the stain. Continue until the stain lifts.

    Sponge the stained area with warm water.

    Blot dry with a clean cloth or paper towels.

  • I buy a can of "Spot Chomp" ---Read the directions then spray it on,wait a minute,then blot with paper towels. It might take two or three times but that stuff is wonderful!!!

  • try some powder laundry detergent. Work it into the carpet, stand on it & twist it in. Then vacuum it up
