I had some really bad luck at Christmas. The dog knocked my husband into our huge 4-wicked candle on a stand and it fell over onto my relatively new ivory carpet. I was devestated. It was a huge amount ground into the carpet. I called all carpet cleaners and no one could help me UNTIL...I bought "goo-gone" and "goof-off" from Home Depot. It worked miracles! I apply a little bit daily and now it looks great..almost gone!
