I have tan carpet in my boat, and spill coffee in it all the time. I wet the inside down and use Simple Green diluted in water. Brush it around a little and rinse. Inevitably, I will tip over my coffee the first time I go out afterwards.

Ditto on the simple green for most stains. Has taken our grease spots, blood, dog pee, "chaw" stains, coffee and dirt spots in my tan boat carpet. Wet the area, spray it on, scrub area and rinse with clean water. About 3.50 for a spray bottle at menards. I use the spray bottle at full strength per directions on bottle for spot cleaning.

PS: it gets stains out of housecarpet as well. Just had all our carpets cleaned on thursday and yesterday my wife had a bottle of babyfood carrots break and spill all the way up our white stairs. The Mrs was freakin out cause the spray-on carpet clearer didnt get it out. I used the Green and had them out in about 15 minutes. Chalked up some big-time points for that one grin.gif

What did he do now? You fish much this weekend? We're going up tommorow to try our luck. If the Green doesn't work I have some stuff that might.

It looked like he had dog sh-t on the bottom of his shoes after we got out fishing. Luckily it wasn't but he did muddy it up a little. Then in his frustration he kicked the leach bucket over and a pound of them were crawling all over the place. Nothing major but it could only happen to him. Fishing was good on Sat. and we even managed to put 62 miles on. Slower yesterday.

I use my small Bissell carpet cleaner and it works great. That way it cleans and sucks up the excess water.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
