I bought my house 5 years ago and the previous owner had dark stains of some sort throughout the whole house on the beige carpet. I've shampooed many times, but the stains always seem to come back.
I use a Rug Doctor and the coordinating cleaning solution, but is there some other homemade thing someone has used that works better? I'd love to not have those stains again.

Have you tried having it professionally cleaned?
I don't have a recipe, but I've used "Folex". You can buy it at Lowes, Home Depot or grocery store. It comes in a tall white spray bottle. It takes out stains instantly and I've never had one bleed back through. Good luck!
Here are questions related to Homemade Multi-Purpose Carpet Cleaner.
I would appreciate it if someone can suggest homemade products for carpet cleaning, especially for ones with wool, as well.

Does anyone have a recipe to get any type of stain out of carpet?
