In reply to Remove overspray from carpet by Smitty on February 8th, 2001 12:10 PM [Go to top of thread]

I don't know, any chemicals that you might use could take off your stain protection. This is what 3M says to do. Use GOO GONE, follow directions on package, then follow these 1,2,3 directions.

Step 1
• Use a spoon or dull knife to remove solid materials.

• For large stains, work from the outside of stain to
the center to prevent spreading.

• Blot up liquid spills with a white towel or paper towel.

• Mix a solution of 1/4 teaspoon of clear hand dish—
washing detereent with 1 cup of water. Stir gently.

• Apply detergent solution directly to a white cloth.
Dampen the carpet fibers in the stained area with
the cloth . avoid saturating the carpet.

• Wipe gently. turn cloth frequently. never rub, scrub
or use a brush. This may damage carpet fibers.

• If necessary. use your fingertips to work the solution
to the base of the stain.

• wet the stained carpet fibers with clear, lukewarm
water to rinse.

• Cover the spot with an absorbent white towel or
paper towel and apply pressure to blot.

• Repeat the rinsing and blotting procedures until
you are sure all traces of the detergent have been

• If the stain is gone. place an absorbent white towel or
paper towels over the area cleaned, and weigh towels
down with a heavy, color—fast object, such as a
weighted plastic wastebasket.
• Change towels or paper towels until carpet dries.

• If the stain remains, proceed to Step 2. (For coffee.
tea or urine, skip Step 2 and proceed to Step 3.)
Step 2
• Do not use on coffee, tea or urine stains.

• Mix 2 tablespoons of non—bleaching. non—sudsine

household ammonia with 1 cup of lukewarm water.

• Apply ammonia solution, rinse and blot as outlined
in Step 1.

• Do not dry with paper towels. Proceed to Step 3 to
ncutraliie the ammonia solution.
Step 3
• Mix I cup of white vinegar with 2 cups of’ water.

• Apply vinegar solution, rinse and blot as outlined
in Step 1.

If this process does not remove the stain, contact the
Scotchgard Service Center at 1-800-433-3296 for
further assistance.
