    Thank you for the smile today. I just took a 9×12 rug to be steam cleaned
    but they didn’t get whatever that grunge is on the outside. I’m going to
    try the peroxide. Much cheaper than oxy clean.

    3:23 It’s still pretty bad.

    Hope some of this stuff works on set-in coffee stains – crossing my
    fingers!

    I do not understand why people who do not know what they are doing post
    videos and offer advice to others. Yes, hydrogen peroxide can make some
    organic stains invisible. In this case, the green colored material was a
    spot, not a stain, as indicated by the chemical reaction when she poured
    the hydrogen peroxide on the carpet. Yes, heat can activate the release of
    oxygen … but it is safer to just let the hydrogen work over time. Some
    carpet fibers, such as olefin, have a very low melting point, and if this
    woman’s carpet was olefin, she would have a nice big burn mark now.

    Please folks… do not follow the advice on any of these DIY videos if they
    are make my people not trained in that field. Shaw Carpet has a spot &
    stain guide on their website and gives instructions for removing various
    spots and stains without damaging your carpet or making the stain
    permanent. If you can’t get out a spot or stain following Shaw’s spot and
    stain guide, then pay a few bucks to have a professional IICRC certified
    carpet cleaner to use professional techniques to remove the spot or stain
    for you.

    Years ago I spilled liquid on my dark wood armour foot (pretty sure i
    butchered the spelling) cabinet. I am moving and moved the cabinet to find
    this ugly brown like stain. I tried “Spot Shot” but it didn’t work. I shall
    try this and will let you know.

    iron up with water and voila!!!!!! it is gone!!! I should have taken a
    before and after pic!!

    A few observations,
    1. Its called heat transfer.
    2. Using an oxidizer without extraction can cause bleaching in certain
    types of yarns. Isopropyl alcohol would have been a better choice.
    3. Move the iron, by leaving the iron in one place for too long the risk of
    delamination of the carpet backing goes up. If that happens the tufts can
    easily be pulled leaving a “bald” patch.
    4. Shaw, Mohawk, Coit, Horizon, (most manufacturers and large cleaning
    companies offer online spot and stain treatment guides. Its better to check
    those resources before going nuclear with resolve, or attempting a
    procedure like heat transfer.
    5. As mentioned in a previous comment, in a situation like that calling an
    IICRC certified company to assess and handle situations that were not
    remedied with online treatment guides is the safest way to not permanently
    damage or stain a carpet. Had that been a polyolefin carpet with excellent
    stain resistance and a melt point of 160-170 degrees, softening point of
    around 150, well that iron could have meant a replaced carpet, over what
    would have been a simple hot water extraction by a professional.

    We are selling our house and have our inspection tomorrow. We had a few
    bright pink stains that even a professional could not get out. Your method
    worked!!! You have probably saved us thousands in replacing new carpet!!
    Thank you!!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing. I used hydrogen peroxide to clean up
    strawberry lemonade off of my carpet. I first tried a mixture of dish
    detergent and ammonia but it didnt work. But the peroxide and iron worked
    great. Pulled the stain right up in seconds.
