What this means is that it may be able to stain your carpet a different color if you have a nylon or wool carpet! Never fear, though. It can be safely and easily removed without damaging your flooring. Any carpet cleaner should be able to remove it and those who say it can’t be removed shouldn’t be allowed to do anything to your carpet as long as you live there!
