This is also applicable to the red wine stain. But for those trickier stains like lipstick and crayons we may need to apply directly a small amount of bleach onto the stain and rub it with a soft cloth do it again until stain disappears if we have a colored carpet use the bleach that is intended for coloured clothes or items. For the crayons, pour or spray a very hot water onto the spot and brush with a soft bristled brush or rub with a cloth.
