rubbing alcohol, vinegar, lemon juice, etc.  Its

simply a matter of knowing how to use these common

household products and the procedures involved to

clean up stains.  Below, you'll find some tips on

how to clean up pet stains and some other types of

common carpet stains.


Pet stain


For your first option you can use one teaspoon of

clear, household type ammonia to a half cup of

cold water.  You can use this solution in a spray

bottle or apply it to the carpet directly.  It is

very important not to wet the carpets backing when

you apply the solution.  After you have applied

the solution, use paper towels to blot then allow

it to dry completely.


For a second option, you can use detergent solution

made of hand soap or dish soap.  The combination

is one quarter of a teaspoon detergent to one quart

of water.  You should always make sure the soap

doesn't contain bleach or lanolin.


The third and best option, is to use water, it

can re-hydrate the stain to help with removal.  Most

types of pet stains can be cleaned up by using a

steam cleaner.  Once you have finished, be sure

to dry the area as thoroughly as possible.

Ink stains


1.  You can purchase isopropyl rubbing

alcohol at your local department or grocery store.


2.  You can apply it by pouring some onto a

clean white towel or cloth.  You can use paper

towels as well, as long as they are white.


3.  Blot the stain as much as possible

until it is removed.


4.  Make sure you be careful, because if the

stain is small, you need to blot in one direction

only so you don't spread the stain.


Beer and wine stains


1.  Mix a solution with one part white

vinegar and one part water.


2.  Apply the mixture to the stain using a

spray bottle to saturate.


3.  You should allow the stain to sit around

ten to fifteen minutes.

place paper towels on top of the area, then something

with weight on the paper towels.  Allow everything

time to sit like this until the area has dried.
