Using Ammonia to Clean Stains from Carpet

I used to be a housekeeper for an apartment complex years ago, and when we had to get rid of any type of hard to get out food or pet stains we would make a 2/3 milk 1/3 ammonia mixture. Use right away and dispose of the rest. Pour it on the stain, let it soak in for about 30 seconds, wear rubber gloves, and the stains will come out! Remember to have a fan blowing or a ceiling fan speed on high. This will help with the little bit of ammonia fumes that may give you a headache or cause your eyes to water a little bit. And it will, it's ammonia!

My only reservation about using any amount of ammonia, especially on carpeting with padding, is if someone has cats. The ammonia smell often attracts them as if that's their kitty box or need to mark their territory spots. :-(

Rubbing alcohol will take out stains also. Pour it on the stain and blot. Repeat if necessary.
