How can I remove really dark stains from tan carpet? Some are from milk and some were from when my Dad was ill and got blood on it.

I'm not sure about milk but I've found an easy way to get blood out of things. I've used hydrogen peroxide to remove blood from furniture. I'm sure it would work with carpets too. I just pour a little on and let it bubble. Then I dab it up with an absorbant cloth (I use old cloth diapers left over from when my children were little). Depending on the size of the spot, it may take a few pours of the H2O2 to get it done.

You could also try white vinegar. I found that it removed wine stains from my carpets.
Yup, the hydrogen peroxide works on blood. Use a 50/50 solution with warm water, sprinkle a little salt on the stain after spritzing, rub with cloth and voila!
