Grease and Oil Marks
Gently rub in talcum powder, cornmeal or cornstarch. Let it set and then brush or sponge powder away. Vacuum the area.
Soak stained area with diluted ammonia (one tablespoon ammonia, one cup of water). Then dry with a hair dryer.
Use club soda to flush the wine from carpet fibers.
Flush with cold water. Avoid hot water as heat will set the bloodstain.
Blot the area with a vinegar solution (one part vinegar, two parts water). Then blot with a detergent solution (one teaspoon detergent and one quart water).
Freeze the gum with ice and use a dull knife to remove.
Put a brown paper bag over the dried wax and run a hot iron over it. The bag will absorb the hot wax.
