We got some soot on the carpet from the woodburning stove. Any suggestions for how to remove it?

I just built a new house and somehow one of the candlewicks I clipped managed to get buried into the new white carpet.
I steam cleaned it - but it wouldn't go away.
I tried the stain remover that comes with the DRYEL cleaning kit because I remember that it removed some soot from my suit coat a couple months back.
I rubbed the tip of the bottle into the carpet and blotted it up with a towel and it worked well. I repeated the process until the stain -and it took up almost all of it. Now I just have a little light gray pencil eraser sized spot which is way better than the half dollar sized black streak.
That stuff saved my day!

I just vacuum the carpet and in the spring and fall I shampoo all the carpets. They all get soot and it doesn't always show. I use a wood stove to heat our entire house in the middle of a city what a savings on gas. we use fans to circulate the heat. I dust the walls as well every week.
