      Swear, there was a red wine stain in spare bedroom , it had to been there for at least a year. I sprayed folex on it and it disappeared almost immediately. You can get folex at Fred Meyers and most stores

    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.
