How can one remove red cough syrup from a pale beige carpet, was able to remove a majority of the stain but still have a big pale pink splotch on the carpet.

Answer: Generously and evenly spray the area with BISSELL oxygen based product such as Power Shot® Oxy for Carpet & Area Rugs.  Gently work the solution into area with a small brush, sponge or cloth using light strokes from the edges of the stain to the center.  When you reach the center of the stain, lightly pinch an upward motion.  Do not rub the stain.  Wait 5 minutes.  If the stain remains, repeat with Power Shot® Oxy for Carpet & Area Rugs waiting overnight to let it remove the stain. Then, use your BISSELL upright or portable carpet cleaner over the affected area.

If this does not work, and your stain turns out to be tougher than expected, I recommend trying BISSELL Stain Pretreat for Carpet & Upholstery .  As always, follow up your pre-treated carpet with a good carpet cleaning from an upright or portable machine!
