There are a number of household products you can use to lift unwanted stains out of a carpet, including rubbing alcohol, shampoo and vinegar. Want an even stronger DIY cleaning solution? Mix in baking soda with the vinegar.
The household blog One Good Thing by Jillee suggests soaking the stain with vinegar, then sprinkling in a little bit of baking soda. The order is important here; pour vinegar on a pile of baking soda, and you have the makings of a carpet volcano. Once you have a bubbling mound of baking soda on the floor, just wait a few moments for it to absorb the stain, then wipe and vacuum it up. Jillee used this mixture to clean up pet urine, but it should work on a variety of stains, so hit up the source link for some more photos of this hack in action.
