Make It Yourself: Sprinkle cornstarch on stain early in the day; vacuum up several hours later. Make a paste of fuller's earth and water; apply to stain; allow to
dry, loosen with a brush; vacuum.
Food stains and general purpose cleaning: Mix; before washing, first test a small section of carpet to make certain it is colorfast. Then wash very lightly, a small area at a time. Do not rub hard and do not soak carpet; blot up excess moisture.
Stir in enough water to form a paste. Spread paste on soiled area and let dry completely. Brush away the powdery cleanser along with the dirt. In the case of stubborn stains, gently scrub the rug when the cleanser is first applied.
