Home-made carpet cleaner (baking soda followed by clear dish soap+ white vinegar + warm water)
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. It helps if you have a wet vac or carpet cleaner of some kind to pull all of the chemical from the carpet, but not necessary. Took out some nasty stains in our carpet like magic!

Magic Carpet Cleaner ;-) Baking soda, vinegar, dishwashing liquid & warm water!! Actually works on clothing stains as well (particularly oil based stains like from food splatter)
One commenter states: I was told that the baking soda may clog the carpet shampooer, but that vinegar is perfectly fine and have seen many women recommend using 2 cups of vinegar and hot water rather than buying the solutions because its cheaper, has no residue, and works better.
1. Scrape up the liquid 2. Sprinkle baking soda or cornstarch on stain to let absorb for 10 minutes and then vacuum. 3. Mix one tablespoon clear dishwashing liquid and one tablespoon white vinegar with two cups of warm water. 4. Using a white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent/vinegar solution and blot until all the liquid is absorbed. 5. Sponge off with cold water and blot dry.
it works!! peroxide + dish detergent... just got up the dried/mashed/ground in yogurt stain on my son's cream carpet! i've tried a handful of cleaners, shout spray/wash, simple green, carpet cleaner machine... and this did it. woot!!
