We recently rearranged our bedroom and when we did I noticed a couple stains on the carpet. I have no idea how long they’d been there and where they even came from (gross!).

They’re like matching little stains right smack in the middle of the floor! I added the arrows because I learned that it’s really hard to take pictures of brown stains on tan carpet but in real life they are very noticeable.

Since I didn’t know what the stains were from I wanted to use a product that would keep them from coming back. I recently discovered Spot Shot, made by WD-40, that is great for getting rid of old and new stains AND keeps them from coming back!

My sister pinned this thing about getting stains out of your carpet with an iron, and wrote, “I just tried this, and I guarantee hilarious results.” So how could I pass up an opportunity like that?

This is specifically meant for Kool-Aid stains, but I don’t think I’ve had Kool-Aid in my house for years. (Crystal Lite maybe, but not Kool-Aid.)

I do, however, have a stinky dog, as you’ll recall.

And I’m going to blame her for these unidentified carpet stains.

(I know you can’t see it very well, but it’s a little spot that looks suspiciously like a shitstain. She doesn’t poop in the house, ever, so it’s quite possible that it’s just gross doggy dirt or slobber, or perhaps not even her fault. I did spill an entire glass of Coke in there once, so, ya...

Whether you live in the north, south, or in the west, tracking mud in the home is a common problem during the winter months. Snow and rain can make it very difficult to keep the inevitable mud from transferring from shoes to carpeting. The problem is even worse if you have children or pets. Pets need to go outside, yet it can be difficult to completely towel dry them every time they come back into the house. Children often forget to take their shoes off or to clean them properly. The result is the same: muddy prints on the carpets.

If your stain is not too large, a carpet installer should be able to use a "cookie cutter" tool to fix it. When I was a property manager, one property owner used this technique to salvage nice carpet marred by a single stain.

First, the installer will use the tool to cut out a circle containing the stain, then cookie cutter out an identical size circle from a carpet scrap, the back of a closet, or another unseen area. Next, the installer will swap the unstained circle for stained circle, carefully matching the direction of the carpet's nap. He will cut a piece of seam tape, a few inches bigger than the hole. He will insert the seam tape between the carpet and the pad, and glue the patch to to the tape. He will use additional tools to prevent cutting the top fibers and to fluff the carpet to blend the edge.

I found a YouTube video demonstrating the process. There is also a larger cookie cutter tool, similar to a compass that can be used for larger stains. Keep in mind...

You've probably figured out the rest by now!

But if you're need some help piecing it together, don't worry! That's why I'm here.

Heat your iron to an appropriate setting for the fibers of your carpet.
If you're in an industrial space, it's probably got a lot of polyester or plastic or some such thing in it, and the highest setting is going to melt those fibers! (Don't worry Eric, I totally didn't do that . . . It's fine. Really. Just trust me!) So set it as high as it can go without doing more damage!

Place your paper towel over the offending stain, and apply the iron to the towel. Let it sit for a few seconds, and check out the towel. If you've got a bunch of wax marks on the towel already, reposition it.

Repeat these steps until all of the wax has been absorbed by your paper towel.
