1 – Blot Stains, Don’t Rub Them:

Dab stains with a cleaning solution and a clean cloth, paper towels, or a sponge.

2 – Use Shaving Cream

The best carpet cleaner for general stains is ordinary shaving cream—”It will remove just about every type of stain.”  Once the shaving cream has set, blot it away with a dry white cloth.

3 – Use Dishwasher Detergent for Grease Stains

The best method against difficult-to-clean grease stains is to use a drop or two of a grease-cutting dishwashing detergent

4 – Remove Wax by Heating

Burning candles in the house can result in wax dripping onto the carpet, where it quickly dries and gets embedded. Place a white cloth over your iron, then put the iron on top of the wax to warm it up. Finally, scrape off the wax with a butter knife.

5 – Ice for Chewing Gum Accidents

You step in chewing gum out on the street but don’t realize it until you tracked that gross, sticky mess onto your carpet. To get it out, head to the freezer and grab a couple of ice cubes. Once the gum is frozen solid, use a spoon to lift up the glob and cut the strands of carpet as close to the gum as possible.
