    Add 1/2 pint lukewarm water to a teaspoon of mild non-alkali detergent. Stir the mixture to form a uniform solution.

  2. Blot the stain

    Soak the stained area with a portion of the solution, and blot the spot with a soft rag. Blot from the edges towards the center to avoid spreading the stain to the surrounding parts of the carpeting.

  3. Apply ammonia if necessary
