Sometimes your regular carpet maintenance routine just doesn’t work because let’s face it, accidents do happen. The best way to deal with accidents is to treat them immediately. If the stain is new, you have the possibility to completely remove the stain. If left untreated until you feel like vacuuming and cleaning it, it most likely can’t be removed at all.
Removing Tricky Stains:

Here are instructions for a water/vinegar solution that can be used on many stains:
Make a solution of one part of water and white vinegar.
