Vinegar is the godsend of all cleaning and helps remove most stains. There are many different formulas to try when trying to remove each stain. For muddy paw prints, and mud, mix a tablespoon of vinegar with a small amount of corn-starch, rub that into the affected area and then let it settle for two days before vacuuming and the stain should have vanished- like magic!


Salt is great for red wine spillages! With red wine you must be prompt in order to not let the stain soak in the carpet too much- otherwise, it will be difficult to vanish. Whilst the red wine stain is still wet, pour over white wine this will dilute the overall colour of the stain. From there, clean the stain with cold water and a sponge. Once this is completed, pour salt over the stain which will then absorb any red wine left in the carpet!
