replace the carpet. smile.gif

Besides having a professional come in I don't know what other options you have. And even with that you may not get it all out.......did you search for other cleaning tips?

you might want to try Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's, I believe it was that brand, I used on our carpet when my daughter spilled grape juice on cream carpet with that and resolved I got it out...

I have gotten many stains out using the white can of Chem-Dry spray you can buy in the store. It is the same stuff the pros use. My wife once set a bottle of Old English on the carpet and the cat knocked it over and leaked for quite a while and left a huge spot. I used a can of this and got it all out and that was on a off white, speckled carpet. Worth a try.

Good luck.

The kid loves these things. He had one before and the bulb burnt out and melted the side of it so I threw that away but he wouldn't part with this one. He's done with them now!!!

Try Spot Shot. Its worked for anything that we have gotten on our carpets including red wine and markers. For $3.99 its worth a shot.

Regular rubbing alcohol - I've had great luck with it. Dampen a wash cloth/rag (make sure the rag won't create more of a mess) with it and daub/rub, etc etc.

Good luck

I have used non-chloronated brake parts cleaner on lots of stains around the house. Spray on-rub off. Try on a scrap or in a spot out of the way- had one person tell me it melted the carpet in there car. I use it anywhere I have a stain that I need to get out!!!!!

Definitely try in an inconspicuous place. We had some brake cleaner at the shop that was melting the clear coat on aluminum wheels. After polishing brake dust out of four we switched brands.

OxyClean. It has gotten some pretty bad stains out of the carpet for me.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
