I have tried this and it worked amazingly!
1 T dish soap (I used a clear Dawn)
2 T hydrogen peroxide

Mix together and scrub stain.  I used a tooth brush.  

DIY Cleaning Solution for Carpet Shampooers

Save a LOT of $$ on carpet cleaner when you rent a shampooer.

Easy Homemade Carpet Cleaning Solution for Machines

HOT Water (approx. 1 gallon of water)
1 Tablespoon Dawn (or other dish soap)
1 1/2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
1/4 Cup 3% Peroxide
First, fill your machine’s water reserve with HOT tap water.  You’ll want this as hot as you can get it from the tap.  Leave space for the otheringredients.
Then add 1 tablespoon Dawn dish soap.  Other varieties work well, but don’t use any “with bleach”.  Then add the vinegar and peroxide.  3% peroxide is the type used on cuts and is found in any store in the first aid section.
Be sure to add the dish soap after the water or you’ll have a full container of soap bubbles before the water nears the top of the container.  Resist the temptation to add extra soap!
Clean your floors with your machine as you normally would.  You canrinse by using hot water, but I’ve found there is actually no need for rinsing.  It’s truly amazing how well this simple solution works!
