How To CleanCarpet

Stains and spills are bound to happen when kids, pets and juice collide with carpet. Next time you're faced with removing a stubborn carpet or rug stain, give Original Pine-Sol® a try.



Rub in a splash of Original Pine-Sol® where needed. You can spot-treat grease or heavy dirt marks, or use all-around for a refresh. If you're not sure your carpet is colorfast, be sure to test an inconspicuous area first.


Wipe the area down with water.


Dry the wet area thoroughly.

Clean and refresh area rugs in the washing machine along with a capful of Original Pine-Sol®. You can also add Original Pine-Sol® in your steam cleaner if device instructions permit.
