There are many different types of stains that can possibly find their way onto your carpet. Things like pet stains, vomit, coffee, or tea.
It is imperative that the stain be treated as soon as possible. First, quickly grab table salt and pour it over and just around the outside of the spill. This helps inhibit the stain from soaking further into the carpet. This will buy you time to get either white cloths or all white paper towels to blot the stain with. Remember – never rub. Blot with just straight pressure, pressing down on the stain. Then apply a solution of 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts water, with just a little amount of mild carpet detergent. Apply – blot again – and then place clean towels over the stain and weigh them down. Let them sit for several hours. Repeat until the area is dry.
When treating red wine you can try pouring white wine over the stain and then follow with above treatment, blotting first – or you can use plain soda water, blotting first and then follow with the above treatment.
