Before I go out and buy carpet stain removers that may not work, I'm hoping to get some ideas on what other people have done to get rid of mustard stains!!

football mom... go to the web site for the manufacturer of your carpet, they'll have stain removal tips for virtually any kind of stain. don't touch that stain til you either find the answer on line or contact the manufacturer directly or you could void the warranty. this is presuming you purchased and installed that carpet.

WD-40 cleans up an amazing number of products.

I have used it on everything from grease to grime. I have not tried it on mustard, but it will not hurt your carpet so give it a try. Just spray some on. let it sit a few minutes and clean up with a little dishsoap and water.

Believe it or not it is the best thing ever to clean your bathtub. Spray on, wipe off. Incredible. If you don't believe me, just try it once.

Rub a hot dog all over the spot. You will have a clean floor and a tasty luncheon.

My freind's brother is a chemist who works for a company that creates industrial use cleaning products. he invented this product that's pretty amazing, you spray it on the stain, and it literally breaks down the stain and it ends up disappearing without having to touch it. It's non toxic, and is safe on all surfaces. I used it personally on my oil painting stains on teh carpet, coffee stains, and my puppies pee stains, all disappeared 100%. Not trying to be a salesman or nothing but the stuff works wonders literally, message me if you like, I'll hook u up.

Spread hot dog buns on the stains, then press down on them with a phone book. After ten minutes, open the phone book and look for the number of a carpet cleaning company.

Thank you wading to exhale - that gives me a few ideas.

Pen name, I'm assuming you already tried this???
Obviously I'm looking for other solutions before I fork out bucks to have my carpets cleaned professionally.

Try peroxide. Get a wash cloth and pour the peroxide on the stain, and kinda scrub it out. (It's pretty much the active ingredient in Oxy Clean). Also, you can try vinegar and baking soda. (remember science class in the third grade?) I've used that before on a number of things, including cleaning out the bathtub drain. Both are safe and non toxic, no worried for kids or pets.

I used my own buns, but the results made me think of more absorbant alternatives.

i'd try a few things around the house before resorting to buying chemical agents.
ordinary plain vinegar might work;
it has many uses i believe...

try to sponge the stain with a vinegar solution: 1 quart warm water, 1/2 tsp. liquid handwashing detergent and 1/4 c vinegar. blot with water. before using solution, test for colorfastness.

you might try using a powdered detergent, mix some with water, then sponge with plain water. apply a paste of powdered detergent and water.
if using a liquid detergent, apply liquid directly to the carpet.
if you use any detergent, blot with plenty of water till you see no more soapy residue.

another thing to try might be goo gone, one of those stain sticks or pen stain removers if the above don't work.

Cut a swatch about a foot square....replace with a swatch a different colour or try to match it. It would make real fashion statement and start a whole new idea in "house cleaning".
