Carpet Stains

I need help removing old stains in the carpet in the house I am renting. I don't know what types of stains they are, but they are blue, red, green and one brownish one. I have a steam cleaner so some type of solution would be good. The carpets are sculpted dark and light grey. HELP!

I have used the Oxi-clean powder mixed into a thin paste on kool-aid type stains in my carpet and it worked wonderfully. Just remember that anything you use should be tried in an (b)INCONSPICUOUS(/b) area first or you might create more problems than you already have! (03/19/2003)

Check with your local hardware store, there are many products in the "housewares" department for removing stains from carpet. I can't remember the name of the one most apartment complexes use it would remove any stain including red koolaide, it has been many years since I worked at the hardware store. Greasy stains, including lipstick can be removed with lighter fluid for zippo lighters. (03/20/2003)

DD7 has been a great help (this can be purchased at your local Walgreen's drugstore or hardware) but make sure to test it as it will remove some color. It removed red juice stain from my cream colored carpet, no residual stain can be seen. (04/08/2004)

When we owned our fourplex, we would steam clean the carpets first with about 1 c. Pine-Sol mixed in the water and then go back over it with regular carpet cleaner. (05/07/2004)

We had dumped register ink on carpet once and used rubbing alcohol to get it out. You soak the spot with rubbing alcohol and blot, soak, blot, works great. Do not rub. (08/15/2004)

Try Simple Green first. If that doesn't work, try things like hairspray, alcohol, or a mixture of 1/3 wisk, 1/2 vinegar, 1/2 ammonia. (05/28/2006)
