  • I didn’t post the question but am grateful for the suggestions for my own carpet.


  • I have cream carpet, these are great ideas :)


  • some good advice im going to give the nappie san a try thanks ladies


  • Cavalier Bremworth Carpet stain remover is the best cleaner that really works!


  • Have you tried Bi-carb soda yet? Try making a paste with water and the bi-carb, spread it on the stain and press it in and leave it for a while then rub off with damp cloth…


  • Mix a little bit of nappi. San with. Water an scrub .Should get dark stain out.


  • I swear by Listerine (the original), it also deodorises.


  • Might sound strange, but try baby wipes. Good luck!


  • I tried all the commercial products and the only thing that did any good was Nappy San. I made up a fairly thick solution and spread it over the stain and rubbed it in. Left it overnight and then removed it with a damp cloth. You’ll never believe this but the stain was caused by my dog eating a black snake and then bringing it up on the carpet, and yes, the stain has almost disappeared!


  • Thanks guys! Will get some when I go shopping next. :)


  • I’ve used the Vanish Oxy Action too and it worked well for our carpets.


  • I find the Vanish Preen Oxi Action Carpet Stain Remover works wonders on any stains. I have used it on light coloured carpets as well as darker coloured carpets and it has gotten the stains out equally well.
