Carpet Stain Help

In our last outing, one of the grandkids spilled red Gator Aid on the carpet by the couch. The couch is fine, but the carpet definitely has a red stain! He have tried about 1/2 dozen different products and no luck yet. We have blotted and rubbed to no avail. Other than covering the area with a throw rug, any ideas on how to remove the stain?

I've had luck with this product.

Red Stain Remover

I've also heard that half ammonia/half water mixture. Saturate area and cover with a terrycloth towel and steam with a steam iron.

Try OxyClean. It took a chocolate stain out of our light-colored carpet that had been there for several years.

Mix it strong, pour it over the stain to saturate and let it sit a few days. Rinse this area thoroughly with a carpet cleaning machine, then clean the entire carpet with a bit of Dawn in water with some OxyClean in it. Rinse well.

This was originally recommended to us by carpet-cleaners. We have not used anything else since.

We use this on our entire light colored carpet at home a couple of times a year, and spots such as coffee as needed. Works beautifully.

I also have had good results with Oxyclean. I usually let it sit for only 30-60 minutes. Rinse a couple of times & cover with a clean towel. The towel wicks up the remaining water (& stain). This removed red wine stains @ our house.

If the Oxyclean doesn't work, try Greased Lightening. It works well for me.

I've tried a lot of those do it yourself tricks with no luck. The vinegar and iron trick worked a bit but I ended up calling some local San Jose carpet cleaners to get pricing and just had it professionally done.

Ditton on the resolve. Get the resolve spot remover and soak the area real good. Now take your fingers and work up a lather. Now get an old towel and blot the area to get all the old stain out of the carpet. Repeat if necessary. Resolve also makes an Oxy version and that stuff will eat your skin and may bleach the carpet, wear gloves. It is a last resort but I have not seen much the standard resolve won't get out. Don't get me started on my wife's car floor.
