The best thing we ever got for carpet stains is a Bissell "Little Green Machine". We have two Labs one of whom is very senile and can't always get outside to do her thing.

The "Little Green" has worked wonders for us. The only negative is that it gets the spot so clean, the big shampooer can't get anywhere close to the same level of clean.

Note on Proxide or any other bleaching compound.. Check for colorfasteness on an "out of the way" spot.

A good out of the way spot to test....

If you have what look like cornice covers (often along one wall that are crpeted, these often cover either plumbing or wire runs, If you remove one then the carpet is wrepped around the back side a bit, 100% hidden, color fast test here.. If it bleaches the color out of the carpet.. No damage since it's fully hidden.

NOTE: Odds are the carpet is colorfast and you won't have a problem.. But those odds can be increased greatly by testing first. (One of Murphy's laws. If you don't test, you will wish you had)

In the house and RV, I've had very good results with Spot Shot. I also just bought a bottle of Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover. The Folex was bought on-line but I forget where. Fortunately, I haven't had the opportunity to use the Folex yet but I'm sure it'll be put to the test soon!

An RV tech recently gave me this formula. He claims it will remove water stains from ceiling fabric so it should also work on carpet stains. 4 oz. vinegar, 4oz. club soda, 1 oz. bleach, 8 oz. warm water. This mix has a shelf-life of 2 days max and should be mixed only as needed. Club soda needs to be fresh. Mixture will not work without the club soda fizz. Spray on and let dry. Do not scrub. Repeat as necessary. I have not personally tried this. Probably should be tested on a scrap or hidden area first.
