On how to remove or improve this? It’s looking permanent to me......it’s a white wool wall to wall carpet in a bedroom. Woman told me ash from an incense dropped on it and she and her daughter proceeded to hit it with everything but and under the kitchen sink........ a little resolve....lil Tide stick....but she said it turned orange when she applied white vinegar and dish soap. I cleaned a basement the proceeded to rinse it out with water. Then I applied a neutral cleaner then rinsed again. Improved a hair but that’s it...... I may go back next week and try something. I will say that I got no transfer ont a white towel at any point so I’m thinking chemical burn???? Or permanent

Looks like it may have some color loss around the outside of it. I agree try the reducer first and see if any reaction or transfer. After rinsing well peroxide and some cellophane covering for a few hours. Good luck and let us know what works or doesn't.

I suspect it's permanent. I looked up the msds for Tide Stick and was surprised that it is made from some type of H202 and alcohol. I suspect the Tide Stick is a fairly strong oxidizer that should not have been used on wool carpet or other natural fibers. Then to top it off she also puts Resolve, then adds vinegar to the mix. If you're good at doing a patch I'd suggest go to that next. I don't think you're going to magically reverse it. My guess, she's jacked her carpet up and only a patch might help at least make it look less noticeable.

Thanks. I’m gonna try to reduce it and that will be that for me.....I suggested a patch already but I think the reducer is worth a shot

I Agree Oxidizers are harmful on wool when used at low levels they wont cause harm. You really should use caution
