Shaving cream or folex (in the carpet cleaner section) is safe for most carpets, and folex has a 100% money back guarantee! Don't be a consumer without it! They both really work great!

Linda made a great point: don't let them have it in the living room. Heck, regular juice is easier to clean up, and can be mixed with soda water for "soda" (05/24/2006)

I have used Koolaid to dye materials...may not come out. If you have to replace the carpet, talk to your insurance agent to see if this is covered

Awsome cleaner. I used to buy it at dollar stores. Can't say that I have bought it lately, and I no longer have white counters or carpet. When I did that stuff took it right out. It worked like it was bleach, but harmed nothing that you sprayed it on. I was like magic on red, kool-aid, juice, fruit, jello, wine... any thing red. I used to buy it by the gallon. I think I used it on my husbands shirts also? can't remember, if it did not work for clothing I also have the answer for that.


Whites can be dabed with bleach & rinsed but what about colors? You spread the shirt over a big bowl or pan tie it around or tape it so it stays taught if you can. Boil a pan of water, then pour it from about 12"s above the shirt onto the shirt. It should take the stain out the 1st time, other wise boil a second pan & repeat. Like magic no more red spot on your shirt. (06/11/2006)

Kool-aid Stains on Carpet

I spilled red koolaid on my tan berber carpet and immediately I tried Folex and also Kids'N'Pets. Neither took the stain out. We even used them in the shampooer. (07/28/2006)

Kool-aid Stains on Carpet

Am forever spilling Kool Aid on the carpet. What works here is a combo of baking soda and vinegar. Let them bubble for several minutes then blot. If the stain is still there re-apply once or twice. (09/25/2006)

I tried the Oxy Clean too and it didn't work. I found on another site they say to use dawn, and water. Put the solution on the stain, then put a white towel over it and an iron. It should come out then. (02/06/2008)

I recently searched for how to get red koolaid out of carpet and found myself on a site that gave the most wonderful advice. Mind you, I have had these stains for over a year and a half. So I quickly ran to the hardware store and bought the only thing I needed which was about $3. The stains were magically gone. I wish I could hug the person who gave the advice.

1) Mix equal parts of ammonia and water and drench your stained area.

2) Take a white rag and soak it in plain water.

3) Place the rag dripping with water on top of your stain.

4) Take a hot iron and place on top of your wet rag for 20-40 seconds. You may take off and put on for increments of 10 seconds if you would like.
You will see the red stain transfer to the white rag.

What you need:
white rags,
water, and
an iron
