I bought a cherry wood antique chair recently. When I moved the chair last week while vacuuming, I noticed the cherry wood stain got on my white rug in 4 spots where the legs were resting. The chair's wood stain must not have been completely dry when I purchased the chair. I've tried a carpet cleaner, which didn't take the stain out at all. The antique store didn't have a clue to help me. Please send your ideas...thank you!

Several years ago, my cat knocked over a can of furniture stain my husband was using, leaving a huge spot on the living room carpet. After trying several expensive remedies with no luck, I tried a hint I read online -- squirt foaming shave cream on the stain, work it into the carpet with a rag or brush, let it dry, vacuum up. You may have to repeat a few times. Just get the cheapest shave cream at the store, or try whatever you have on hand -- as long as it's NOT GEL. I was very skeptical, but it worked! At most, you've lost a dollar if it doesn't work for you. Good luck!

I just dropped a quart of cherry stain on my white carpet!

Editor's Note: I'd try to get as much of it up as you can with rags or old towels being careful not to drip it on the rest of the carpet. I don't know that you will have much luck trying to get the stain out. I'd look for a new piece to replace that part of the carpet.

Spilled Old English furniture polish on beige carpet. What can I do to remove stain?

What is it with all of us and Dark Walnut English Oil???

I sprayed WD-40 and let it sit for about 30-40 seconds then blotted - then sprayed again, blotted and then rubbed.

My carpet is light beige - no it's not - it is mostly white with tan in it. Short, tight Berber. We had a small flood in the basement and I was giving the carpet away because insurance had to replace all of it. I was careless in polishing furniture 4 days ago and got over- spray everywhere. I asked a large family (who have had a lot of bad luck lately) if they wanted the room full of carpet and when they said yes - I panicked - I didn't want to give them terrible carpet. So I took a chance with the WD-40. I am amazed and stunned. I did not think it would work. I have a steam cleaner and I used it to put moisture back into the carpet. It is unbelievable! They loved the carpet and I showed them the 15" X 18" section they would have to look out for. I think the suggestion of using a little diluted Dawn with the hydrogen peroxide might help the spot to NOT collect every little piece of dirt that comes across it.

So very glad I ran across this post! I hope this helps someone else too.

Try WD40. Then use a carpet stain remover for the WD40. Who would have believed it.. Let us know how it worked for you.

Make a solution of 2 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part Blue Dawn. Work in with a brush. Spray with distilled water and blot with a clean white rag.

Dab the stain with a small amount of club soda, plain water, or a mixture of eight ounces of water, one drop of uncolored dish soap, and one teaspoon of white vinegar. After blotting, dry the spot with a hair dryer.

Thanks so much for your information. I removed the total stain. I used a Viva paper towel and blotted the spots of Old English Dark Furniture Oil on my white carpet several times and then sprinkled lighter fluid on what was left of the stains and blotted the stains again with clean Viva paper towels. It all came out immediately.

I appreciate your input and help.

I too tried the automotive hand cleaner. It worked! I didn't let it sit very long. I blotted a lot first. Used a small amount on a Q-tip, agitated, blotted again, then used damp paper towel. It took the Old English Furniture Polish out 100%! Amazing! Awesome! I'm so happy! Thanks for the tip!
