 What are some tried and true ways to get stains out of carpets such as pet stains? I know vinegar is good to use. Whats the proper way to do it that works best?

Sadly the only thing I have found to work has been the big commercial cleaners! :/ I have a recipe using baking soda and a couple other things to try. I have heard vinegar can be used, but not sure of mixing with ammonia .... Which is what makes me hesitant to try! I accidentally cleaned a cat box with a bleach type cleaner and that was not good!!

rip it out and burn the crap..

I hate carpet. specially after we ripped ours out and found out how truly nasty they are. we have the laminate flooring now. when we get the money we are going to start in the little room and put in bamboo flooring and seal it. cost more but suppose to last longer plus it's real bamboo and not this crap laminate is.

Yeah...i'd rather have all wood floors. my living room is the only room that has carpet, but eventually I want to get wood floors laid in here. Kids and pets are bad for carpet!

I agree! My only thing with the carpet wears waiting for the baby to be done crawling, which she has been for about 8 months now. I felt wood would hurt worse to get splinters. We have old wood and parkay floors here. Now I just have to make myself do it. I sweep carpets, so it would make it easier.
