actually make the stain worse and permanently alter

Removal - Prochem's
Spot Remover Kit is ideal for removing all types of
spots and stains. When removing spots, always
pre-test the spot remover on a hidden area of your
carpet or fabric. Apply a small amount and blot it
with a clean white cloth. If any color appears on
your cloth or you see any color change, do not use
the spot remover. After testing, apply the spot
remover to your cloth, and then blot it onto the
spot. Repeat until the spot is gone. Next, rinse by
wetting the cloth with water and blotting it onto
the area. Then, with a clean dry cloth, blot dry.
