Water-based stains
Step 1
  • Use a spoon or dull knife to remove solid materials ·         
  • For large stains, work from the outside of stain to the center to prevent spreading·         
  • Blot up liquid spills with a white towel or paper towel·         
  • Mix a solution of 1/4 teaspoon of clear hand dishwashing detergent with 1 cup of water. Stir gently·         
  • Apply detergent solution directly to a white cloth. Dampen the carpet fibers in the stained area with the cloth. Avoid
    saturating the carpet·         
  • Wipe gently. Turn cloth frequently. Never rub, scrub or use a brush. This may damage carpet fibers·         
  • If necessary, use your fingertips to work the solution to the base of the stain·         
  • Wet the stained carpet fibers with clear, lukewarm water to rinse·         
  • Cover the spot with an absorbent white towel or paper towel and apply pressure to blot·         
  • Repeat the rinsing and blotting procedures until you are sure all traces of the detergent have been removed·         
  • If the stain is gone, place an absorbent white towel or paper towel over the area cleaned, and weigh towels down with a
    heavy, color-fast object, such as a weighted plastic wastebasket·         
  • Change towels or paper towels until carpet dries·         
  • If stain remains, proceed to Step 2
