The first rule to remember when getting stains out of carpet is never rub at a stain as it just pushes the stain deep into the carpet fibres and makes it much harder to get out. You should always blot at a stain – preferably with something white so there is no colour run off, like a white towel or many paper towels.
Off the shelf carpet cleaning products can work on some stains but if you use these products they should always be rinsed back out with warm water as they can leave a residue that attracts dirt and can make the stain reappear. Sometimes just a rinse with warm slightly soapy water is more than enough, especially if the stain is new. You need to be careful not to overwet when getting stains out of carpet as this will can cause all sorts of issues with the backing including tannon stains and mould.
