TYPE OF STAIN Oily, foodstuff, including coffee, mustard, tea, soft drinks, beer, wine, vomit, urine, excrement

TO CLEAN Mix one tablespoon of mild carpet detergent, 1/3 cup of white vinegar and 2/3-cup water. Remove excess materials by absorbing liquids and scraping semi-solids. Apply solutions. Blot the carpet and gently brush the pile. Apply many layers of toweling over the affected area. Weigh down. Leave until dry.

TYPE OF STAIN Starches, sugars and foodstuffs, such as egg, milk, blood, candy, ice cream, chocolate, sugar stains, salad dressing.

TO CLEAN Mix one cup of water, two tablespoons of ammonia, and one tablespoon of mild carpet detergent. Remove excess materials, absorbing liquids and scraping semi-solids. Apply the solution.

TYPE OF STAIN Heavy grease and oil, including gum, oil, tar, inks, wax, butter, grease, household cement.

WARNING! Pre-test all cleaning agents in an inconspicuous area to make sure they are colorfast. Do not attempt to remove these stains: Lipstick, rouge, nail polish, rust, dried mustard, furniture stains, candle wax. These stains require special reagents or techniques to be used by professional carpet cleaners only.

NOTE: Many carpet owners put agents and compounds on their carpeting in hopes they will remove spots and stains. Often these agents become more of a problem than the original spot. If the spot doesn’t come out using the suggestion above, don’t risk damaging your carpet. Call a professional carpet cleaner
