    Mix equal parts white vinegar and wool cleaner or detergent in a medium-sized bowl.

  3. 3

    Add the mixture to 1 litre of warm water.

  4. 4

    Soak a small hand towel with the vinegar solution, and gently pat at the stain, starting from the outer edge and working your way toward the centre.

    Repeat, working at the stain with the vinegar solution-soaked cloth until the stain is completely removed.

  6. 6

    Allow the carpet to dry completely before vacuuming.
