    I have discovered that the baking soda does work, I wasn't leaving it on the stain until it dried, it might take a while, but after it dries, I just vacuum it and come right up, works better then anything I've tried, thank you. I have tried dishwasher detergent, I just put a small amount on a wet towel and clean, but I have to say the baking soda is the best. Jenny, I was just trying anything I had to clean the spot up, never know what works.
