Clean your carpets of mud and blood.

Another one of the Peekahouseholds  constant problems.  The dogs (and Mr. Peek) track in mud.  And Mr. Peek is constantly bleeding after his dirt bike injuries.

----------

For muddy tracks in the carpet:

Resist the urge to clean when the mess is wet.  Toss a handful of salt on it and walk away.  When dry, vacuum it up.  

-----------

For blood stains:

1 handful salt
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide

Cover the area with salt to try to help absorb some of the blood.  Mix equal parts COLD water with hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl.  Dampen a clean cloth with the mixture and use it to dab at the salt until a clump forms.  Gently keep blotting at the stain and repeat until it disappears.  Rinse with a cloth dipped in clean, fresh water.  Never use warm water, or it will set the stain.

I think this works with red wine too. Mind you I try not to spill mine, I try to get it down my throat...

Great carpet cleaning tip.  I don't have carpets to worry about, but that's great information if I ever move to a place that does have carpeting.
