Anybody know what will get out red kool-aid from kids bedroom carpet?
Go to a liquor store and buy WINE-OUT. This removes anything RED.
If you have set in koolaid or dye in your rugs or clothes, there is a product by your cleaning supplies in your market called Dye Out. It comes in a small 3 x 3 package and it really is a gem. I love it.
Wet a towel and put on the stain, then take out your steam iron and steam it out! It has worked on kool aid stains from 2 years ago.
Take a bowl of water and pour a very little ammonia in the bowl and then take a brush ( srcubbing brush with a handle ) dip in the mixture and then scrub carpet really good. Then get a white towel and you will see the dirt form the carpet.
We just moved in to a new home and I recently spilled red kool-aid on my light colored carpet. I immediately got online and did a search. I found this website with the steam ironing trick! It really works!
The iron trick really works. My daughter spilled her fruit punch all over the floor and I tried everything to get it up right away and nothing worked. We have an apartment so I had to get the stain out because I didn't want to pay for a new carpet. The steam trick really works but it does take a while to do it. Just get a wet towel and put the iron on top and go back and forth until the stain is gone. Good luck! (06/09/2006)
I found the wetting the carpet and using a towel and hot iron works well. Some tips on this - one, it seems to work the Best when its the less traveled over carpet (like on the edges of the room etc) - it picks it Right up then. Really traveled sections it Almost took all the red out - but it was a definite improvement. Also - be sure to Wet the carpet down pretty well - and i dont think you need to wet the towel, as it will pickup the steam very quickly. At first i just wet the towel, but that didnt work well. Also - i havent tried doing a combo of hydrogen peroxide mixed in the water, and the iron/towel trick - that might be better.
Be careful i tried this - it worked on the stain but it also took out the color of my carpet - now i have a white/yellow spot on my beige carpet!
