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.
I just saw a video on YouTube where they suggested using WD-40! OMG!
I had three drops of dark Old English scratch
stain on my nylon carpet yesterday and it took it out like a charm !! Instantly!! amazing!!! Just make sure you have a rug/spot cleaner to take out the oiliness afterwards . :-)
