that bright yellow antibiotic medicine!

Can anyone tell me how to get them out of a cream carpet without making them worse?

No idea but try

WideWebWitch · 28/01/2007 20:07

god, you have CREAM carpets? Are you mad?

AllieBongo · 28/01/2007 20:08

if they are protected, then you may have a warranty and they could send someone out to spot clean the area. If not, it will cost about £30-£50 i'm afraid

Fab link WWW, no didn't get them protected - I threw caution to the wind , and yes cream carpet upstairs in our room. Ds got hold of my mascara and 'drew' on the floor .

The medicine is still flurescent now, even when dried in

what a nightmare for you good luck and let us know how you got it out !

I mix dreft (woollen wasing powder) in a squirty bottle with water, mix and foam up with finger. Massage it in rather than rub and it should come out. leave to dry and hoover tomorrow.

The carpet cleaner man told me about it and it's got alsorts out over the years.

Hire a carpet cleaner it should come out.
We have cream carpets in our room and i spilt coffee all over it once and the cleaner got that out.

I got lipstick out of ours with some really cheap eye make up remover I had hanging around - perfect job.
