Trick 1: Remove the excess
Hence, the first trick to start is blotting off the excess using a paper towel. You don’t want to rub it further onto the carpet or spreading it into a bigger stain. Thus, pat the stain with a paper towel and replace it with a new one until the stain is completely dry.
Trick 2: Apply the solution to clean the stain
In a spray bottle, make sure you mix together half part of water and half of vinegar. Spray a generous amount onto the stain to lift it off the carpet. Also, it would be better to use a 100% vinegar solution if the smell is really bad. Lastly, start scrubbing with the brush really hard to make sure the solution gets into the fibers of the carpet.
Trick 3: Apply the baking soda to get rid of the smell
The last trick is to apply baking soda while the spot is still wet. You will immediately see a fizzing reaction which is perfect because it will contribute to cleaning both the smell and the stain. Using the same brush as before, rub in the baking soda to get it deep down into the carpet fibers.
Let the baking soda do its thing on the carpet until it’s completely dry. Then, once it’s completely dry, all you have left to do is vacuuming the area to see your carpet good as new and stainless.
