Please Note: Dye or print can transfer to your carpet so be sure to use only white, plain paper towels, cloths, and towels. Always conduct a patch test in an inconspicuous area to ensure it does not compromise the integrity of your carpet or ruin the color, no matter if you decide to use our homemade remedies or use a commercial ready-made product. Never use hot water as it can set the stain into the carpet.
