Alternatively, perhaps a child dropped some food or juice into your carpet that seems to spread even as you brushed hard to get rid of it? Stains can appear to have disappeared only to resurface months later on. Stains are mainly of two types:

They include alcohol, blood, fruit juices, and others that dissolve in water.

2- Oil Based Stains:

 These usually comprise of butter, cooking oil, chocolate and other oil-dissolving stains. They are more challenging to get rid of, in comparison to water based stains. Whatever may be the type of stain, always remember to blot and not rub stains away.

Detergent Solution Preparation:

The detergent solution can be made by adding one teaspoon of detergent to 0.3 liters warm water, make two batches and then add one teaspoon of white vinegar to one batch for a vinegar solution. The ammonia solution is made of 1 teaspoon of ammonia to one cup warm water. While these are common cleaning supplies, they still need to be tested on your carpet in an inconspicuous area before you treat your stains.

Do not apply the cleaning solution directly to the carpet, use the absorbent cloth to remove the stain. Work from outside of the stain moving to its center, this will help avoid spreading. Use a hairdryer on a low setting to help dry the carpet. You want to keep the carpet as dry as possible while removing the stain.
