David, NOVA Darkroom sell Tarbuster, which is good for getting rid of stains on all sorts of surfaces! Try on an inconspicuous area first!! Regards Pau

As you're in the U.K. try phoning Prochem on 0181 (this is the old code for outer London numbers, you will need the new code) 974-1515. The specialise in carpet cleaning chemicals for professionals. Good luck, pete.

I've had good luck with most everything on carpet using denatured alcohol. Try it in an out of the way place first.

Mix up some bulk chemistry and stain the rest of the carpet to match.
