    My friend spilled ramen noodles all over her carpet. It left a really nasty yellow stain in the carpet. I have a portable carpet cleaner, and I couldn't get it out. Does anybody know what I can use to get his stain out.
    thanks.

    my daughter spilled some in her room once, and when I steamed cleaned it with a wand and set up an air mover, stain wicked back up after a few days. So this time i used my 360i and bonnet dry, stain is completely gone even after a month has passed.If you don't have a 360, a spotlifter would work in this situation, the key thing here is to completely flush it out and drying it. if there still some hint of yellow hit it with stainmagic.

    It's the Turmeric in the spice packet. Stain magic.

    The yellow is likely either turmeric or curry. I have an article about this type of stain on the cleanwiki website. There is a link below if you want all the details.

    Basically use StainZONE or Stain Magic. Use fresh product. If the stain is difficult, you can accelerate the action of StainZONE with a UV flashlight.
