Anyone have any secret homemade recipes for getting out those crusty salt stains on the carpet? In the past, I've used a Bissel Little Green Machine with their cleaning solution and it does an alright job, but it's still noticable -- instead of a brilliant white crust, that area of the carpet appears slightly "faded."
My brother says to just keeping soaking/blotting it with a rag dampened with hot water. This will draw the salt to the surface and once it dries, just vacuum it up. Supposedly this has to be done a number of times to get rid of all the salt. I'm not sure I have the patience for this.
Yes, I have the "winter" floor mats, but there was some leakage around the edges.
