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!

laundry stain cheat sheet---These are all wonderful tips, and I'd add this: while working many years as a registered nurse in surgery & critical care, I kept a bottle of peroxide handy at the desk or in my locker.....apply a little to blood stains & they lift right out. I always had the whitest lab coat & cleanest shoes! Peroxide works well for stains that are organic in nature....
