Fill a bucket with cold water and enough dishwashing liquid to create a sudsy mix. Use just the suds, not the water, and work them into the stain with a soft nylon brush. Leave to dry or use paper towel to absorb the moisture. When dry, vacuum. If there’s any unpleasant odour, repeat this process.

An alternative method is to apply cold water and dishwashing liquid suds with an old toothbrush, using as little water as possible. Then fill the bucket with warm water and dishwashing liquid and again apply the suds to the stain with an old toothbrush.
