    Any luck with getting red punch stains out of cream colored carpet?🤦🏾‍♀️

      Hi Tanya! I have not had this come up before, but it would be worth a try to use straight peroxide and if that doesn't work, a mixture of vinegar and baking soda?

      When I Googled your question here's what I got:

      Mix one tablespoon of liquid hand dishwashing detergent; one-half cup distilled white vinegar and two cups of warm water. Use a clean white cloth to blot this solution into the stain. Work from the outside edges toward the center to prevent spreading the stain.

      I hope it helps! :)

    I have found that by mixing a ratio of 5 lbs white cornmeal and 2 lbs of cornstarch together will make a very nice carpet cleaner.

    I sprinkle it on using my small mesh strainer and scrub it in with a long handled brush. Wait at least one hour, 2 is better; and then vacuum it up. I was using an expensive dry cleaner and I found that this was better. No chemicals either. Safe to walk on and for pets.
