Spray & Wash & Mr Clean Magic sponges are my friend wih 2 active boys. It will take red wine, coffee, all juice, pen crayon, you name it. I haven't found a stain it won't take out and its handy and easy to use. Yes I use it on the carpet and even walls. I just spray the area and let it sit for a few mins and then get a warm wet towel and pat it and you will be shocked. Make sure you rise the area if you use a lot of it. You may have to scrub for more stubborn stains. I will use the magic sponge to get little spills on chairs, walls and hard surfaces and sometimes carpet. Just be careful as it will fall apart. I just get it really wet and leave some water in it and use a corner and pat the area. Simple Green has a horrilb oder and can leave the green stain on some materials. also something else i learned, baby wipes work great for cleaning leather. Talk about handy clean up for leather furniture with kids. LOVE!!!! Good luck. I finally ripped up all my carpet in my main living area and put in laminate flooring after my second baby came. LOVE IT!! No smells or orders and easy to clean. My son just decided to color my bedroom carpet with a purple crayon yesterday. Spray and wash to the rescue.
