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.

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!

Our furnace blew soot through my entire house. My carpets look ruined. I was told not to clean my carpets due to the stain guard protectant. I am at a loss please help me out of this mess. Thank you.
