View Full Version : carpet stains

I was working on a car yesterday and found a couple of bad stains on the carpet, the owner mentioned he thought it was from Koolaid or some other juice, spend a lot of time and tried APC and other cleaners without any luck, did not make any impact on stains at all, would appreciate any suggestions you might give me,
thanks.:wall: :wall:

I find that product and technique have helped me through some of these.

I like some of the OXY cleaners out there, and using Meg's brushes, particularly this one. Also a product named "Spot Shot" seems to help lighten it up.

Some stains just can't be removed. :( I have one in my house, its red and permanent!

For stain removal I like 303, Folex or Kids and pets brand. I suppose I should try Meguiar's interior cleaner one of these days. If the stain is a red stain there is products available to remove or reduce the appearence of red stains. Red and purple (grape juice stains) are very hard to remove.

Are you using a carpet extractor?

Try Resolve carpet cleaner. So far it's removed everything I've used it on.
