How do I remove a black cherry pop stain from beige carpet?
By Chandra from Kannapolis, NC
Have you tried Club Soda? I would contact Stanley Steamer and ask for their stain remover but know ahead of time that anyting red has a dye that is almost impossible to get out. If anyone can get it out I believe in Stanley Steamer.
I agree with deanj. Use vinegar. It took red kool aid stain out of my carpeting. Try pre spraying the spot first with some straight vinegar. Then mix vinegar with as warm a water as you can and clean it. I have a steam cleaner I use and the vinegar really does work. I just have to rinse the cleaner out afterwords but it is definitely worth it.

How do I remove a set-in red soda stain from cream/white colored carpet? Any suggestions would help. Thanks.
Call a reputable professional carpet cleaner. I did, and he was able to remove not only long-ago spilled oil, but red candle wax as well. (03/21/2008)
You could try white vinegar. I used it to remove old wine stains on a tan rug. It worked very well. (03/22/2008)
You could also try brake cleaner. It is very smelly, and you should test for color-fast-nest somewhere unseen first. Spray on the brake cleaner, then blot with a cloth. (03/23/2008)
Try Club Soda. Just pour a little on the stain and blot it with tissues or paper towels. Do not rub! Continue in this manner until the stain is removed. I know this works for red wine stains. Good Luck! (03/24/2008)
I like to "clean green" as much as possible, but I have to say that I have yet to find a stain on carpet or clothing that SPOT SHOT didn't just love! I swear I've seen many stains just disappear in front of my eyes. The neighbor kids thought I was a magician. Now, maybe this will be the one it won't attack, but I've removed red Kool-Aid with it.

I use Scrubbing Bubbles on all my carpet and upholstery. It took a 5 yr old red something out of my very light blue carpeting. I got this hint from two different car detailers. Lots of luck. (03/24/2008)
