Scrubbing usually works best for me.  If you don't have time to attack the stains with some soapy water and a scrub brush, you can always try a spot-bot.

There is supposed to be a special mixture of about 6 different chemicals.  if you google it, im sure you can find it. It is supposed to be made up stuff that is already around your house.

I have tried the shaving cream on my red stain, it did not work, but works well on most other stains.

lately my biggest problem has been paint stains on my table ( i married an artist). luckly the paint he gets is pretty removable, but it has to be attacked with soap and water before it sets.

Keep a can of  unscented shaving cream on  hand for carpet stains.  Blot spills with a cloth, then apply the shaving cream to help cleanse and keep the stain from setting.  I've used this many times on my classroom carpet , in which there were many spills. The principal came in one day and saw me doing this...he told me that mine was one of the cleanest carpets in the school.

Vinegar and hydrogen peroxide 50/50, with some dish soap or laundry detergent added as a surfactant.  If your carpet is color-fast, you can add bleach, too.

But the best stuff is [url="http://www.folexcompany.com/"]"Folex"[/url].  They sell it at Lowes, and you may be able to grab it at your local supermarket.  That stuff is friggin' awesome--we have...many... cats and a 3 y.o., it handles just about everything.  I pretreat with it when I wet-vac.
