  • I would say it would have to be vacuumed.

  • I would vacuum too. I don't think baby powder will stain?? My daughter poured parmesean cheese all over our carpets. Soooo gross! I'm still struggling to get it out. Nobody can see it but if you put your nose to the floor you can smell it. Yuck!

  • Sweep up what you can. Then vacuum in the morning. I cant even count how many times we've gotten powder in the carpet.

  • My three year old did this to his bedroom carpet, but while I was doing dishes. I finished drying the last dish before I even smelled it.... I knew something had to be up since he was being quiet, lol.
