  1. Using a clean spoon, try to slowly extract the spilled baby food on the carpet. Do this slowly so that you will avoid spreading the spill over a wider area on the carpet. Also take some paper towels and blot the affected area to help remove the liquid particles which cannot be removed using the spoon.

  4. Repeat the previous step as often as necessary until you are able to completely eliminate the ugly baby food stain. This is going to take several attempts but soon your carpet will be nice and clean once more.
  5. To finish off the job rinse the area where the baby food stain used to be using a cup of room temperature water to help remove the residue that could stay behind. Dry it off using a clean towel and then you’re done.
