    I clean carpet stains with a mild solution of Dawn dishwashing detergent and
    water. I keep a bottle in the laundry room for clothing stains. It even
    handles grass stains, tomato stains, and grease stains. Dawn rocks!

  6. OxiClean!!!! That stuff takes out any stain, in my experience...including 3
    day old blood on a carpet (don't ask).

    Just rub it into the carpet with your shoe and take out carpet insurance
    for the future. Reminds me of a woman I knew who deliberately spilt red
    wine on to her best quality wilton in order to get it cleaned on the
    insurance. A guy turns up and cleans the wine patch but not the other 98%
    of the carpet. She had to pay another guy to do that because the clean
    patch looked so conspicuous.

    , Once upon a time in a land far away John Bailo was alleged to have said:
    If this isn't a joke, try Folex
    This works amazingly well. It even removed spilled red ink from a
    printer cartridge from my pale tan carpet. Takes out everything I've
    tried it on.

    I've got one of those mini little rechargable hand "steamers". It
    comes in handy for when the dog(s) (or other pets), well, you know.
    Works great for tea, soda, and drink stains, too. I think it's a
    Bissel, but I'm not sure. Go out and buy one.

    Can you get that stuff in the grocery store? I have seen the
    informercials for it but I always thought the stuff in those
    informercials was over hypped crap. I guess its a carry over from the 70s
    when all you could get was cheap crap by TV. I hear the new Ginsu knives
    really kick butt too. If Oxiclean really does work wonders, I guess I might
    just have to order it. I got clothing with stains that even tide never
    got out. InkJet refil ink anyone? Can you order Oxiclean via the
    internet? Likewise I could use some new cookware and kitchen utensels.
    Possibly some Ginsu knives. I am being sincere in my request for info.
    Tools from TV I would want to purchase
    Red Devil portable outdoor kitchen. those pasta pots with
    built in strainer lids. Vacume sealers (I buy bulk quite often.) That
    new Micro hair trimmer. Now if Linux was distributed with Video
    Professors free CD offers... He doesn't have a course to learn KDE or
    gnome in Linux. Or the deal offered by Lauren Harris (video professor
    again?) to add say Slackware linux to the CD bundle you only pay
    shipping for.

  15. Only if it was from a Lipton tea bag. You see, the help desk
    doesn't know any other kind exists and will be stumped if you
    tell them it was loose leaf.

    Sometimes the best way to cope with a stain/mark is not to try to remove
    it but to disguise it by making it just one among many. I suggest a
    liberal sprinking of Cola, red wine, beer, coffee, tomato ketchup,
    mustard, vomit, urine, anything you can think of...

    Once your carpet is covered with that lot you won't notice your original
    stain. Plus you'll never have to clean it again.

    Try cleaning it with shaving cream. Assuming this is a light
    colored carpet, then let the shaving cream sit on the stain
    for an hour or two before using a rag to rub the stain away.
    Works in our house.
