No matter how hard you try to keep your carpets clean, accidents happen.

Cleaning carpet stains may seem daunting, but with the right cleaning technique and solutions, persistent stains can be easily removed.

To remove pet stains, use a carpet cleaner that contains enzymes, such as the Bissell Professional Pet Stain Removal formula. For a homemade carpet stain remover, mix 1 teaspoon of mild dishwashing liquid in 1 quart of warm water, add ¼ teaspoon of white vinegar, and apply it to the carpet stain. Dry the area with a clean cloth until the stain completely disappears and remove any residue with a damp cloth. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the mixture, apply it little by little, and dry it frequently with a dry cloth until the stain disappears. Spray any remaining stains with a carpet stain remover, following the manufacturer's application instructions.

Then, dry the stain with a clean, dry towel until it disappears. Try 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed with 1 cup of water (but not on wool or wool blend carpets; use a mild detergent and water instead). Avoid using warm water to clean blood stains on the carpet, as this will help the stain adhere to the material. With these expert tips, your carpet will soon be as good as new without the need for professional cleaning.

Vacuum and clean the persistent stain with a carpet cleaner with a dry solvent, following the instructions on the label.
