Sprinkle baking soda on carpets, wait 15 minutes, then vacuum.
Attend to spills as quickly as possible by blotting the wet area with clean, white cotton towels.
Continue until nearly dry.
If necessary, apply a spot-cleaning solution of clear dishwashing liquid and water (about 1/4 teaspoon per quart). Rinse well and blot to dry.
