Day one

Spilt small amount of calpol onto my new cream 80%wool carpet.


Friend said pour the same amount of cold water as calpol spill onto stain and soak up both with clean cloth.

Did that and still pink carpet

Carpet supplier said clean with fairy liquid and water.

Did that stain appears to disappear... grin

Day two

Slightly larger watery Pink stain has returned overnight on on same new cream 80% wool carpet hmm.

What now??

Any tips appreciated...

use a woollen clothes detergent (like dreft), small amount mixed with water and massage into the area, blot after with kitchen paper and leave. Do not rub

Thanks furball sounds like the DO NOT RUB is something I should have done yesterday blush.

I'll put this as my no 1 tip for now

Any more for any more before I go to waitrose for a packet of dreft .
