Make the solution 

First, we need an acidic solution to break down the milk’s sticky proteins. So, mix a cup of water with two tablespoons of vinegar and a few mild dish detergent drops.

Apply the solution to the stained area

Apply the mixture until it covers the whole stained area. To get that bechamel stain entirely out of your rug, make sure the solution deeply soaks the area.

Gently rub on the stain

Take a terry cloth and gently massage the stained area with it back and forth. Then, blot the stain to absorb the excess mixture, as the acids are dangerous to the rug’s foundation in the long term. So, you’d better not leave them on the rug.

Rinse and blot

Rinse the stain with clear club soda and blot the wet area with a clean terry cloth until dry. 

Vacuum the area

Once the stain has been removed, vacuum the area to remove any remaining dirt or debris. Make sure your rug is completely spotless by repeating the steps multiple times.
