*** I tried this out on a couple of offending stains that were on my carpet (an had been for years), and it worked so well!!! In fact, I decided that if it worked so well on stains, it might work on the areas of my carpet that are highly trafficked and it did!!! In fact my carpet looks almost new. I will be using this simple cleaning recipe to clean my carpets on a regular basis.***
