  • Bi carb of soda. Sprinkle on stain, rub in with warm water, leave to dry and vacuum up. Repeat for more stubborn stains. And test carpet colour fastness in a inconspicuous place first

  • yeah i hate having carpet and children

  • bicarb soda rubbed in left to dry and vaccumed off works wonders

  • Cordial stains are horrid! Try bicarb and vinegar and rinse rinse rinse!

  • I personally don’t think anything will get red cordial out. not even a professional

  • How did it go Hope you were able to get one

  • This might sound odd but I was told buggies whipes remove stain from carpet. And it actually worked. I got onto it straight away. Not sure if it will work if the stain has been left for a bit. But worth a try

  • I’ve not bought any commercial products, I’ve always found that a paste of bicarb, vinegar and peroxide works for me. Though it could take the colour out of brightly coloured carpet.

  • I too have tried a number of different products without success! I have found the best method is to actually get to the stain with some warm soapy water or a baby wipe before it has a chance to dry…
    If not a good steam clean once in a while can do wonders :)

  • Thanks for all the useful information It will help when I am facing the same suituation

  • did you have to replace the carpet?

  • I wonder how you went with getting the stain out?

  • Vinegar works amazingly!

  • That’s huggies not buggies

  • I was told buggies whipes get any stain out. Worked for me
