I spilled rice pilaf on my carpet and I don't know how to clean the stains it left. I picked up most of it, but as you can see, remnants of it still persist. It has now been sitting for about a day. Is there a DIY way to totally remove it?

What was in the pilaf? That would help suggest the type of cleaner to use, though for a food stain I would probably start with an oxygen based cleaner. –  Zaralynda Dec 19 '13 at 21:38
You probably need the Rice Pilaf Forum or the Stain Mogul Database. –  bib Dec 20 '13 at 0:16
