This will restore the carpet to its finished look.

Powder cleaners are designed to give your carpet a lift in appearance and sometimes to give a pleasant scent but professional cleaning is needed eventually.
Foaming Shampoos that are aerosol can based can be affective in small areas. Spray the foam onto the affected area and gently rub into the carpet with a damp cloth, brush or supplied applicator.
This will need to fully dry and then vacuum the area fully where you have sprayed, this process may need to be done again if the carpet is still soiled.
