Red Juice In Beige Carpet?

January 20, 2007 8:00pm CST
My girlfriend spilled red gatorade on our beige carpet in our apartment. I have tried to get it out and don't want to pay to get it professionally cleaned. Does anyone know anything that works?

It is recommended that you use a wet vac and slowly pour hot almost boiling water on the spot and vacuum it up at the same time, (this will open up the dye ports on the carpet fiber releasing the stain. and remove the residue from the carpet). If the stain is still visible then try to put Dawn dishwashing liquid (4 or 5 drops into one cup of water) or carpet spotter. Dampen the spot letting it soak on the stain for about 5 minutes and repeat step one. After this you should rinse the area again with the wet vac and hot water. If this doesn’t work try using orange glo or even 409. The most important thing to do is rinse the stain with a wet vac and hot water from a kettle to remove all the reside, or the spot may come back. Or try Carpet Aid, you might read the label of this product and then try one or the other that I have suggested. Good luck !!
