First soak the stained area with a little water, and then sprinkle some baking soda on it. Using your fingers, spread it out gently and let it rest overnight. Dip a cotton dab in white vinegar and use it scrub off the stain. And then, as with the salt method, use a vacuum cleaner to clean up little tidbits.
