    Google. A quick look, it seems like there is a salt method, a club soda method, a vinegar method, a combo vinegar soap method, a white wine method (I'd be drinking it tho), a vinegar baking soda method, a dish soap hydrogen peroxide THAT SAYS IT WILL DISCOLOR YOUR DARK CARPET AND USE WITH CARE, and probably tons of others out there......

    Most seem to agree, don't SCRUB just DAB.

    Best of luck!

    I will say I used the baking soda and vinegar suggestion one person made and it worked MIRACLES!!!!!!! May try that on a small patch. It actually brightened my carpet back to new! (Light tan carpet, what was the complex thinking?!)

    This is what I ended up doing (without using the carpet cleaner)!!
