Tea stain on the carpet?

homeseller2010January 31, 2011


How do I remove 6 years old tea stain from the carpet? Is there easer way than heavy commercial solution?

Any suggestions/advice welcome.

Thanks in advance.

I use Spot Shot in the aerosol can. It will remove just about any stain.

Here is a link that might be useful: Spot Shot

Tried this past weekend, even with several applications it did not work. May be because it is a very old stain.

I've used OxiClean Max Force Laundry Stain Remover on old coffee stains in carpet and it worked great.

Mix equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide, add a squirt of Dawn dishwashing liguid. It will foam up, put in a large container (I use a plastc half-gallon pitcher). Apply foam with a scrub brush, gently rub in with the scrub brush. When it dries, vacuum. This may take 2 applications. This removes all stains and deodorizes.
