  • Mix baking soda with white vinegar until homogeneous paste is formed. Cover the stains with the cleaning solution using an old tooth brush. Wait to dry, then vacuum the paste up. You may need to repeat the process at least twice before the stain is gone, according to cleaners Parsons Green.
  • Use club soda to soak the stain, then blot with white paper towels or cloths until the spot is completely removed.
  • To eliminate grease spots, absorb as much of the grease as possible, then sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda or corn starch on the affected areas. Vacuum the carpet on the next day.
