Cleaning Carpet Stains

    I just got a 2002 Chevy Suburban. It has some RED stains on the GRAY carpet in the rear seat area, probably Gatorade or some other similar drink with Red Dye #5 in it. I tried Oxy Interior 1 Cleaner by Turtle Wax today and had no luck removing the stain.

    Does anyone have a carpet cleaner that works on juice stains?

    Thanks.

    Tom, try some Aqua Net hair spray. It removes ball point pen ink from shirts.
    My mom discovered this some time ago and it worked . If it does not or does on your carpet, it should not do any harm. Try it in a hidden place first to make sure. She never even used hair spray.

    There was a whole thread on stains and stain removal stuff sometime last year I think. Try doing a search for it. If someone finds it, post it up here too if you would.

    I found this post in the suburban section. Carpet cleaner
    The wife used to drink a beverage called Fuze. She spilled it on the beige carpet in the living room and it has left a permanent red dye #5 stain. Nothing, not even a professional carpet cleaner could get it out. The pro recommended dying the carpet. The wife opted for a $20 throw rug. When I worked as a lot boy, I used to 'plug' cigarette burns with a technique similar to this. This Old House
    I would get donor carpet from under the seat and plug the damaged area. It doesn't work for large stains.

    A few weeks ago I was drug to a wine tasting event (just a small note, the refined people dont like it when you chug wine). While there I somehow got involved in a discussion on wine stains on carpet, a wine steward at the counter mentioned a cleaner called "Wine away" also "Wine off".
    I bought a bottle of the "Wine away" to clean a spot my granddaughter made on the living room carpet with grape juice. When I cleaned the spot 2 weeks ago it got lighter but I could still fantly see where it was, we returned from a two week vacation this morning and I noted the spot is now totally gone.

    I have used Oxy clean to take juice stains out. I would let it sit and then blast it with a steamer. I have a steam buggy and it has a fine nozzle and a brush nozzle. It works very well.
