I hope this is where I post this.....

 

I just bought a new cream high pile rug for our family room about a week ago. My daughter was sick over the weekend and when my husband laid her down on the floor (why....who knows???!) to change her diaper, the poop was so runny that it squished out onto the brand new carpet!!! I thought that I had gotten everything up, but there is a shadow on the spot now that I can't seem to get up. Does anyone know what to put on this? I tried using OxiClean and some Shout laundry stain remover. It doesn't seem to be working :(

Try Folex. http://www.folexcompany.com/  I picked  mine up at the local grocery store (Safeway, I believe).  I have never seen it at Target or Walmart.  We once had a stain on our leather couch (under the cushion on the cotton part) and when the furniture guy from the place we purchased it came out, he brough Folex and said it's the best stain remover ever.

 

Try squirting it down with that and get a really good bristle brush and scrub.  Or maybe some Resolve Carpet cleaner?  I've used that in the past, too.  I have had good luck with both of them.

I remember using that a few years back and loving it! I wonder where I can find that around here.... we have the worst grocery stores EVER! Thanks so much for reminding me of that!

I can always buy Folex at Lowes.  I buy at least 2 bottles at a time :)

Kids n Pets.  You can find it with the carpet cleaners at Wal Mart.  It gets out everything.  I LOVE the stuff.  I use it on clothes too.
