After a long day at work or at play, it’s nice to come home, kick off your shoes and socks and walk around barefoot on your plush, clean carpet, right? A little rest and relaxation does a body good.

If you’re looking at a baking soda stain, there are a few ways to approach the problem of how to get dried baking soda out of carpet.
Method # 1

- Soak a clean sponge in this solution and apply the sponge directly to the baking soda stain.
- Place pressure on the affected area with a dry towel.
- Repeat steps # 1-3 until the baking soda stain disappears.
- Let the affected area dry naturally.
Method # 2

- If the stained part of the carpet is dry, start by vacuuming the baking soda spots.
- If your vacuum happens to have a turbo brush that you can use, this is best; though you can also rub the end of the vacuum hose over the stain vigorously to help loosen the stain.
- Next, using a wet rag, go back over the affected area of the carpet until the stain disappears completely.
