Carpet Stain

Hi everyone! I'm looking for some advice on carpet cleaners. We just moved into our house, and there is nice carpet throughout. Since we don't have end tables yet I made the mistake of putting my drink on the floor next to the chair I was sitting in. My husband walked by and, of course, kicked it over. Unfortunately, I was drinking fruit punch flavored Gatorade... We have some resolve carpet stain remover, and it removed most of it, but there is still a definite pink hue. I have been comparing prices of Los Angeles carpet cleaners but I would rather not spend the money. Any thoughts on carpet cleaning products or renting a carpet shampoo-er and doing it ourselves??

Hi Lady! Try Tide detergent, that's right. That detergent is wonderful for stains. Just dissolve a small amount in warm water and use a brush to scrub...Please let me know how it works on your carpet.

If the Tide doesn't do the trick try ...Carpet stain & spot Lifter. I found this works good. You spray it let it set for 30 seconds .. put a towel over it for awhile the towel will absorb the stain .. lift it right out.
Good luck let us know.

I have found that era the laundry detergent (liquid works) as well as the wisk. Yet recently found that Mean Green from the Dollar General store works wonders as well. Try in a small area first though. Have a great day!
