What should I know about stain removal?
Some of the types of stains that we had listed above, contain compounds
that work their magic on pristine carpets. The longer the stain sits,

difficult to remove on your own. Have you ever dyed your hair and then
were asked to sit for a several minutes to allow it to set? It is the
Picture this: a plate of spaghetti and tomato sauce at your dinner party
comes crashing onto the floor, and that gorgeous carpet of yours forever
carries the memory of that fateful night. Not to worry! While this may
strike fear that rattles you to the core, we suggest the following options
to help you remove any fresh stain.
Do not wait. Remember the hair dye analogy. Once a stain dries, it starts setting,
so you must act quickly.
Test all new cleaning products. If you are using a product that you have not used or tried out yet, test
it on a patch that is hidden from view, so that you do not accidentally
ruin the carpet.
Blot, don’t rub. Use a paper towel, cloth, or rag to pick up the stains. This helps to prevent
you from moving the stain deeper in.
Club soda is not just an old-wives’ tale. While there is some mystery behind why club soda works, the fizzy bubbles
may have something to do with it.
Try dish soap—a good old standby! This is especially good at fighting grease stains,
thanks to the grease-fighting powers.
