Pollen Stains on Carpet

I have pollen stains on my wool/synthetic carpet where a visiting child knocked over a vase of liliums. So far I have tried Amway carpet cleaner unsuccessfully. Please help.

I came home to lily pollen on my light beige 100% wool carpet and used my Folex carpet cleaner that works like a charm on most stains. I made it worse and had bright orange stains much bigger than at first, as I read later the water and rubbing just spreads it around. I Googled pollen stain on carpet and found this website. What a lifesaver! I used 91%isopropyl alcohol from my pharmacy (they didn't have 99%)and voila! it worked liked a charm. I poured it over the stains and blotted it up with paper towels. Another treatment after that dried and my carpet is stain free! What a brilliant tip, I never would have thought of it. And it has no odor like mineral spirits.. Another suggestion I was going to use if this didn't work.


Thanks so much! Pamela
