The Miracle Stain Remover You Have In Your Cabinets!
Ok so you can see the DISGUSTING stain on my carpet...not sure how it got there which is probably more scary. Oh well it won't be there for much longer!
Dab/spray the area with the vinegar/water solution until damp. Place the rag on top of the stain and set the iron to the "cotton" setting or about medium. Hold the iron on the stain for about 10 seconds alternating spots until you have covered the entire stain. You may need to add a little more of the solution if the stain doesn't come up immediately. You are basically just steam cleaning your rug with a harmless cleaner.
This is the area where the stain was. Pretty amazing for a few minutes of work, plus I didn't douse my carpet with smelly chemicals or anything like that. I have seen alternative methods using ammonia, while it may do the trick a little quicker, I liked the idea of vinegar better. The stain wasn't in a room that I could "tape off" from the girls and I just didn't feel like doing it at night when they were sleeping--lazy! :)
Have fun cleaning!
