  • I used to use Gain and a little bleach in my carpet cleaner. I recently got a coupon for Xtra (which is super cheap to begin with) and used that in the carpet cleaner with a little bleach and it worked even better. The red stains however stayed, but the remainder of the carpet looks new.

  • WTHeck puts white carpet in a freaking kitchen??? Sorry, but that is as intelligent as carpet on a bathroom floo???? Could you see if you can snag some on CraigsList or and simply replace it??? Just an idea... but carpet in a kitchen or diningroom is retarded

  • I do know of an enzyme spray that works really well. It's the only thing I can think of. Message me for details.

  • I'd pull the carpet up no matter what. Even if you put in cheap vinyl it would be better than the stains.

  • I would go to Bed, Bath and Beyond or Home Depot and look for a carpet stain product called FOLEX (! We sometimes use it in our carpet cleaning business!

  • You could rent a rug doctor steam cleaner to see if that will help. It usually costs about $25-30 to rent.
