Do you have a carpet cleaning solution for grape juice, coffee or red wine spills.  These accidents require you to act immediately, and even then, are extremely difficult to clean.  Even after you brush out the stain with warm water and soap, your carpet is no longer the same.  If you scrub or brush to hard, the carpet fibers can lose their pre-stain look and feel.

Consider using club soda.  Rubbing club soda onto small carpet stains can eliminate persistent soiled areas.  Red wine stains can be very difficult to get rid of, and yet club soda seems to work its magic quite well on red wine stains.

A water-based mixture with peroxide can also work fairly well.  Peroxide is a component in bleach, so be careful not to add too much peroxide in the water-based mixture.  You run the risk of removing the stain and the colored dye from your carpet fiber.

Baking soda is another household item that can be used for carpet cleaning.  Baking soda works great on odors that can remain in your carpet fibers.  With accidents involving urine, for example, which can soak deep into the carpet fibers, the odor can remain long after the surface stain has been removed.

So how do you spread the baking soda to your carpet?  Sprinkle the baking soda around the soiled or stained area, and then vacuum it up afterwards.  Since baking soda is one of the main components in commercial carpet deodorizers, it is already part of a commercially proven formula for cleaning your carpets.

Consider mixing baking soda and peroxide together to counter both stains and odors.  Again, it should be part of a water-based formula.

These are definitely home-based remedies to take care of small spills and stains that may occur from time-to-time.  However, to really take care of your carpet over the long-run, it is highly recommended to have a routine professional come in and really get all of the dirt out.
