You should remove a stain by wiping!
A moist carpet or upholstery is very vulnerable. If you start dabbing, structural damage is definitive. This damage cannot be undone. You have removed the stain, but this damage remains visible and will probably bother you even more than the original stain did.
Please act as follows: Use a cotton cloth and wipe the stain gently using wide sweeping strokes. Do not rub.
