Mix 1/4 teaspoon of a liquid dishwashing detergent for each (1) cup of lukewarm water and pour your solution into a spray bottle. (Do not use laundry detergent or automatic machine dishwashing detergent because both contain chemicals that could permanently damage and destroy your carpet or upholstery.)
Spray the area with the formula.
Using a cloth or towel, gently work the formula into the area using light strokes from the edges of the stain to the centre; at the centre of the stain, lightly pinch the area in an upward motion. Do not rub the stain.
Fill a spray bottle with lukewarm water and spray the are almightily to rinse the detergent solution from the area, but do not over wet. (This is important; any residue that remains may cause rapid soiling – your carpet or upholstery could become a dirt magenta!)
Blot the water using a clean, dry cloth and light strokes that travel from the edges to the centre.
If the spot is not completely removed by the detergent solution, pour a small amount of 3% hydrogen peroxide on a clean cloth. Blot the stain using the same light, edge to centre strokes described above.
Repeat if necessary and then throughly rinse and blot.
When the area is completely rinsed, allow it to dry. A fan will help sped it along.
