Bamboo is known for its quick growth, easy maintenance and verdant green colors, but when you get right down to it, bamboo is a grass and just like grass it can leave stains on your carpet.

Every carpet or rug is different due to material type, dying techniques, age and other factors, so any time you do try a new cleaning method, always check for color fastness. Find an inconspicuous spot to apply a small amount of the paste before you use it on your stain.
