Bad idea. All Stains have a pH depending on what caused them. Call a local carpet cleaner (IICRC certified) and tell them what caused it and they should be able to give you advice.

In general, you can use

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp powder laundry soap (bleach free of course)
Dampen a clean white towel with mix and BLOT (not scrub). use a shop vac of any vacuum that can take liquids to get the water out. flush with a bit of water and repeat. Do not use for coffee, tea, red wine, or animal urine.

I worked as a carpet cleaner for five years and have seen the result of vinegar/BS in the carpet, generally way too strong for a carpet. Call the pros they should give free advice. (03/30/2007)

I use white vinegar on stains on my carpets or you could use 3M scotch guard cleaner available in aerosol cans from big box stores. Both work equally well. (03/30/2007)

I met the owner of a maid service who said they use bleach/water on all white carpets, vinegar/water on some stains, and Club Soda on spilled drinks, and for the worst stains like a "piggy trail", they used OxyClean, rinsing many times and wearing gloves/rain boots, all successfully. : ) (03/31/2007)

I have had pet stains and grape juice stains on carpet. Usually, I spray first with Professional Spot Shot (found at Sam's Club) and wipe with damp cloth. Once the stain is damp, I sprinkle some Borax on and rub in to the stain. After it dries, I vacuum the powder right out. This has removed odors as will as the "grape" color from my carpet successfully.
