Spilled something on the carpet and need a quick homemade carpet stain remover? Good news if you live in Tampa FL there is a really good carpet stain remover close by. My favorite stain remover is carbonated water. Nothing else but bubbles in the good old H2O. There is no need to add anything to it just some soda water, sparkling water, or even mineral water.
Apply it to the carpet stain and let it sit there for about 20-30 seconds. Take a white terry cloth towel and start to blot it up. You will be shocked by how much of the stain comes up with the first application. If there is still some of the stain left in the carpet add some more of the bubbly to the spot and wait another 20-30 seconds. Why wait? You have to let the bubbles in the homemade carpet stain remover lift the stain from the carpet so it can be extracted by the towel. Now find a clean spot on the towel and blot that spot again.
This is important. Don't rub the stain with the towel. You'll want to, but don't do it. I clean carpets in Tampa FL and I go into 4-5 homes a day. I can't tell you how many times I've come across damaged carpet because someone has scrubbed the life out of the carpet while trying to remove a carpet stain. Don't be that guy. All you need to do is gently blot the carpet to get the stain to come out.
If the spot is still there after 3 or 4 applications you can try adding about 4 drops of dish washing soap to your homemade carpet stain remover. Use it the same way. If that doesn't work it's time to call a professional carpet cleaner.
