      How to Get Kool-Aid Out of White Carpet How to Get Kool-Aid Out of White Carpet Get Kool-Aid Out of White Carpet As anybody with kids can tell you, Kool-Aid spots are inevitable, especially on white carpet. Most conventional carpet cleaners won't pull up the colorful mess, but don't worry, there's an effective way to get that eyesore out of your carpet. Does this Spark an idea? Things You'll Need Water and ammonia or Windex White towel Iron Show More Instructions 1 Combine equal parts ammonia and water, or use Windex. If you use Windex, use clear or yellow solution. The blue solution should not stain the carpet, but watch it carefully. 2 Heat up an iron to the highest cotton setting. 3 Soak the stain with the solution of your choice. If the stain is large, work in small sections. 4 Place a white towel on the section you're cleaning. Do not use a colored towel, or the color may transfer to the carpet. 5 Iron over the towel in ten-second increments. It may take a few applications, but the spot will be soaked into the towel within minutes. If you don't see the desired effects after the first three applications of the iron, soak the spot and try again. If it isn't wet enough, the solution will not come up. A sizzling noise is completely normal when the spot is saturated. Tips & Warnings Do not sit the iron down without moving it, or you will burn the carpet. Keep the iron moving, even if sticks some. As the liquid is absorbed into the towel, the iron will move more smoothly.

      Magic!! Combine 1:1 ammonia & water, or use clear/yellow Windex. Heat iron to highest cotton setting. Soak stain with the solution. Place a white towel on the carpet; colored towel may transfer to carpet. Iron over the towel in 10-second increments. It may take a few applications, but the spot will be soaked into the towel within minutes. If you don't see the desired effects after the first three applications of the iron, soak the spot and try again. If not wet enough, the solution won't lift.
