• Take some paper towels and quickly blot the spilled salad dressing on your carpet. Doing this immediately will save you the trouble of dealing with a more stubborn stain that you would have to face. It will also prevent the spill from spreading to other parts of your carpet.
• Get a ¼ cup of warm water and pour it on the stained area of the carpet. This will help dilute the stain in order to stop it from setting right away. Blot the affected area with some paper towels a few times to help lift some of the stain out of the carpet before moving to the next step.

You can try a mixture of one part clear ammonia and four parts warm water on the stain as this makes for a very effective solution that will get rid of many carpet stains. After pouring some of the solution onto the stained area, let it stand first for a few minutes before going to the next step.
