n light carpets, I've also found that the Clorox "pour directly on fabric" bleach works well on those tough spots. Pour onto carpet, let sit 2-3 minutes and then wash with water.

Works like a charm!! Whether you have pets, kids or just know some really messy people, if you have carpet then at some point you are going to have carpet stains. There is a great homemade recipe for getting organic stains out of your carpet.
1. Spray oil stains with wd-40. 2. Pile on baking soda and scrub with tooth brush. 3. Repeat (2.) until baking soda no longer clumps. 4. Apply Dawn and scrub with tooth brush; leave in as a prewash treatment. 5. Launder normally.
