Thumbs up It works!

THANK YOU THANK YOU for the towel/iron solution to this problem. My HUSBAND spilled Koolaid on the rug and I thought for sure we'd have to call someone to get it professionaly cleaned. I have heard nightmare stories about Red Dye 40 being impossible to clean/remove.
I did an Internet search on carpet cleaning products and most said "removes all stains but Kool-Aid, rust etc." Then I read the tip to use the towel/iron and it worked VERY well, I watched the stain lift right out of the carpet and onto the towel.

Default Reminds me of the time I called

the 1-800 number on the Kool-Aid packet & asked how to remove Blackcherry stains from the head & face of my 8 year old son. He tried to dye his hair purple & I put him in the bath tub as it ran down his face & neck. It turned blood red when it mixed with the bath water which made him look like he had a severe head injury. The guy that answered the Kraft Foods assistance line started laughing as I described the "bloody spots all over the carpet and the fact that my son now looked like he had been playing with a chainsaw".

Vinegar took all the stains out. I used Heinz white vinegar, without diluting it. This was after I used Comet & one of those green kitchen sponges on my sons upper body.
