Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda...
I also tried ammonia and water mixed for carpet spots. You spray it on, lay a rag over the spot and then iron over it to draw out the stain. The rags did get dirty and the stain sort of came out but not entirely. I got a little careless and actually melted a small strip of carpet when the iron went off the edge of the rag. =/ Ooooops. The ammonia is kind of like bleach too, so the spots I treated are a little lighter than the surrounding carpet. I'm sure that won't last long though with little feet running over them. =) I think I'll stick to soap and water with a scrub brush and then stamping on it with an old towel like I normally do next time.
A spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide and soda has been added to my laundry arsenal for deodorizing but I'm not going to stop buying Oxyclean for pretreat soaks since I don't have to scrub it into cloths like sprays. The time saving is worth it.
Happy cleaning =)
