Having those spills on your carpet can sometimes seem inevitable. Cups being knocked over, sauces being spilled from plates, or having other unfortunate spill accidents. To remove stains you will need a wet cloth, an iron, vinegar, and water. Remember, with the water and vinegar you want to have a 1:3 ratio. After you apply the mixture, put the cloth over the stain, and then use the steam from the iron for about a half minute.
