Stains on Carpet
I have a light colored carpet with stains(grease,dirt,soda stains). I am going to make an attempt to steam clean it, but first i am looking for any suggestions on what works best. carpet is tan in color.

I have used a dry powder system made by Oreck(the vacuum cleaner people) and have always been amazed at how well it works.

check your local flooring store for MAINTAIN or CAPTURE cleaners.

works very well.

carpet stains
Try a mixture of 50 per cent amonia and 50 percent water. First test it on an inconspicous spot to make sure it doesn't fade the carper. This is a cheap solution to a lot of stain problems.

For grease stains, dab with a small amount of dry-cleaning fluid. Then, blot with a small amount of dishwashing liqiud and warm water. Blot from the outside in, and let stand for five minutes

Place paper towels over the stain and let dry, overnight if you have to.

Brush clean and vacuum once the stain is dry. The flat brush should pick up and dried particles that are lingering, and the vacuum will do the rest.
