Rent a carpet cleaner (Rug Doctor, etc.) and run clear water through it. You may have to do this several times to get it all out. We actually use HE laundry detergent to clean our carpets, then rinse with vinegar water. It works better than the shampoos made for it and the vinegar takes out odors.

I am looking for a solution for a carpet stain. This happened when a 2 year old poured 1/2 bottle of laundry detergent on the carpet (blue color). Please help.

Laundry Detergent Stain on Carpet

I have rental property, and a tenant spilled a lot of liquid detergent on her carpet. After using plain water to remove the detergent (this took a number of tries), I let the spot dry. I then poured straight white vinegar on the spot, scrubbing it in, with a scrub brush, and then absorbing as much vinegar as I could, with old bath towels. The detergent spot disappeared!
