Stop Stains Before They Start
There are three important steps you must use to treat a stain, hopefully before it has a chance to set in your carpet:
1) Wet a clean, white (not printed) paper towel with a cleaning solution. Then dampen the carpet with it. Avoid wetting the carpet to its backing.
2) Absorb the excess liquid from the carpet by pressing straight down with a clean, dry, white paper towel. do not rub. Place a half-inch thick pad of clean, dry, white towels with a weight on top and leave overnight if necessary.
3) Gently scratch soiled area with a blunt edge of a spoon. Scrape for the outside edge of the spot toward center.
