I can't afford to purchase new carpet. Is there a tried and true recipe for removing stains and old odors from them? Thanks.

I love Resolve (pump) carpet cleaner to remove stains. There is also an aerosol spray which is quite strong and smelly for tougher stains, but I find the pump version works great.
For overall clean, rent a cleaner and diy. Its reasonable and Walmart rents them. Odoban is a good disinfectant as well to spray on your carpet and fabric. Sold at Walmart. Eucalyptus scent is nice. (08/06/2009)
Mean Green removes stains nicely and won't fade your carpet. Also, there is a rug shampoo called "Rug Doctor" this stuff is amazing at removing stains while cleaning the rug. You can buy this stuff at an A and P store and you can rent the shampooer there as well. (08/08/2009)
