I would rent an extraction carpet cleaning machine. Make sure to get the
upholstery attachment and use it on the spot. I would use plain water in
the machine. Many carpets are colorfast even with the use of Clorox. If
the extraction machine (like the Rug Doctor) doesn't fully eliminate the
stain, test an inconspicuous spot, like in a closet, with a solution of
chlorine bleach. If it doesn't change the color, that will probably work to
remove the stain. If that makes you nervous, you can try a spot remover for
carpet like Resolve.
I use ACT stain brake'r one step.
I got it from my carpet store but is available by 800-741-3472 (advanced
chemical technologies, inc., newnan, GA).
It is really great on non-petroleum stains. It says on the label pet
stains, grease, chocolate, cola, iodine, fuit juices, alchohol, blood, cold
coffee, tea, makeup, shoe polish and much more.
