  • YES!...Well I've gotten them out of my carpet before (right after it happened) with High Traffic Resolve carpet cleaner. I've also gotten orange pop out of my carpet with Shout carpet cleaner and resolve duel action stain remover (2 different occasions).
    My MIL dumped an entire glass of the orange pop by my TV stand and I still was able to that that out 5 months later (when we moved and I saw it had gone under the tv stand.

  • My Bissell gets all of that stuff out, even if it has been there a few days (kids throw rugs or chairs over stains). Serioulsy, you would not believe the stuff my Bisell has gotten out of my carpets. If you don't have one or can't buy one, try to borrow one from a friend or check C list for a used one.

  • depends on the carpeting i guess...i got blue koolaid stains out of our carpet in the last house we was that really cheap white-ish color carpet, and i just took soapy water and bleach and it came right up...this was after probably about a month of the stain sitting there...we thought we would just have to have the carpet replaced, and i was cleaning a different spot, and figured why not try.
