Laundry stain removers generally use either an oxygen or an enzyme based formula. Oxygen-based formulas contain hydrogen peroxide, which is a color-safe bleach that removes color stains without affecting color garments. Salad dressing, sauces, condiments, coffee, tea, fruit juice, wine, jam, ink and fruit are best treated with the oxydative chamber. Enzymatic formulas work on specific stains, like greasy food, grass, dirt, cuffs, collar, sweat, lipstick, baby food, baby formula and chocolate.
Resolve® All-Stains boasts two chambers, one utilizing oxygen and another utilizing enzymes. Resolve® MAX™ utilizes an oxygen formula, and Resolve® Pre-Treat Trigger and Stain Stick utilize an enzyme formula.

Try to re-clean and blot up as much excess moisture as possible with a cloth. It's also possible the soil has gone to the base of the carpeting and is working its way up through the pile of the carpet.
Some stains may cause permanent damage and long-standing stains can be hard to remove. In some cases, professional cleaning may be needed.
Soak up with a cloth or rag. Placing a heavy object on top of the cloth will help to wick up the stain completely. Certain stains, such as pet accidents (urine, vomit, feces, etc) can cause permanent discoloration. Use Resolve® Pet Stain Carpet Stain Remover for these stains.
Spots and stains appear bigger if area is rubbed and the stain spreads. If application of the product, or even clear water is excessive, this could leave ring-like stains larger than the actual spot. Re-apply the cleaner and wipe the stain inward toward the center. Rinsing the area with vinegar/water may help.
Remove all product from the carpet. Air out the room, place a fan near the area, sprinkle baking soda on the carpet, set for one hour and vacuum. Baking soda will absorb any remaining fragrance left in the carpet. Be careful not to over saturate the area.
It is possible that the product was over-applied. Re-vacuuming is recommended.
The "W" code refers to fabrics that are man-made, including nylon, herculon, acetate, olefin and polyester. These fabrics should be spot-cleaned using a water-based cleaning agent, like Resolve® Upholstery Stain Remover, a mild soap or detergent or a non-solvent Upholstery Stain Remover. You should always test in a hidden area first. Blot the area dry and use the cool setting on a dryer to dry once the stain is removed.
Fabrics with the code "S" are organic, cellulosic fibers like cotton, rayon, linen, wool, silk, denim, velour, brocade, tapestry, damask, acrylic and plaid (cotton/olefin blend). These types of fabrics should be spot-cleaned with a mild, water-free solvent or dry cleaning product. Pre-test the product in a less visible area, allow the area to dry and use a cloth to blot out the solution. If the stain persists, rub lightly in a circular motion. Reverse the circular motion using a clean part of the cloth each time.
Fabrics with the "W/S" code may be spot cleaned with a water-based cleaner, like Resolve® Upholstery Stain Remover, a mild solvent-based cleaner, shampoo for upholstery, or the foam from a mild soap or detergent solution. Techniques mentioned for "W" or "S" coded fabrics should be followed. Do not use Resolve® Multi-Fabric on fabrics coded "X" or "S".
Fabrics with the code "X" should only be cleaned by vacuuming or light brushing. Water or solvent-based cleaning agents should not be used. Do not use Resolve® Upholstery Stain Remover on fabrics coded "X" or "S".
