If you have a light colored carpet (beige, pink, white, light blue, light green, etc;) and you so happen to spill a dark colored liquid (for example - grape juice, fruit punch, wine, strawberry soda) on your carpet, simply take a clean white towel, wet one end. Using the wet end of the towel, soak up and wipe clean the spilled area. Using the dry end of the towel, blot the area dry. Do this immediately after the spill. If you allow the stain to set, you run the risk of the dark colored spill dying your light colored carpet.
