The active ingredient in Roundup is Glyphosate and is fairly harmless to humans. I would suggest dilution with water and use an absorbent material such as baking powder or cat litter to soak up the material and sweep up then vacuum the remaining material.

    I disagree with this answer - the fumes of Roundup are harmful to humans.

How to get almost ANY stain out of carpet! WITH ONLY WATER

This is a super simple way to get just about any kind of stain out of carpet, I used it on a grape jelly stain that was about a day old, and it worked.


Fill a bowl with at least 5 times the amount of whatever caused the stain.

STEP 2. (optional)

put a little bit of laundry soap in the water, swish it around.


Dump the water onto the stain, DON'T RUB IT IN!!


Soak up the water with a towel, paper towels, whatevers handy, blot it, but don't rub it in--the rubbing or scrubbing you usually associate with getting out stains is what smears the stain cause into the carpet, or fabric fibers. It's important to not let the spill get "enmeshed" into the fibers, the water sort of will lift the spill off of the area.


Repeat steps 3 and 4 until spill is gone.

Carpet cleaning

Carpet shampoo is popular way to clean your carpets. There are many different brands of carpet shampoo, so make sure that you follow the guidance on the label.
  1. Make up the solution as directed on the packaging. In many cases, the product will need to be diluted with water.
  2. Use just enough carpet shampoo to cover the area.
  3. Do not make the carpet too wet - not only is this a waste of detergent, but it's also going to increase drying time.
  4. Scrub on the particularly stubborn areas using a hard-bristled brush.
  5. Let the carpet dry.
  6. Vacuum the shampoo once it has dried.

I have treated the area with roundup for about a 70% kill rate. A friend just mowed over the area. Will this impact the ongoing kill, and do I need to spray the area again?

When was the field mowed after spraying? If it was after three days, then the plants that were treated will die off. You probably should plan to retreat the areas that weren't killed after those plants are growing again. (It will take a few days depending on moisture and other conditions.)

In general, you can spray any missed plants 7 days after the first treatment. Then mow or seed the area 3 days after the second treatment.

If the field was mowed prior to the three days after the first treatment, retreat the entire area after the new growth begins.

For specific details, read the label for your Roundup product. Scotts has the label at the bottom of their product pages. All of the Scotts Roundup products are listed here:;jsessionid=64F09279DC15FE8877450FE65C85C38E?itemId=cat50096&navAction=jump . Select the specific one you used and click on the View Product details link. Then click on the View Label link. For example the label for the Roundup RTU (ready to use) Pump and Go Spray formulation is here: .

I hope this helps.

How long do I need to wait to reseed / sod lawn after applying roundup?

If you use Roundup or equivalent (do not use the long-acting product with a pre-emergent). Then you can reseed three days after the treatment. Do check the label for your specific product for any directions that differ for the reseeding schedule.

Some specific treatment limits: First some lawns will require two treatments with Roundup before reseeding (or planting sod). So wait 7 days after the first application to identify any green (growing) spots and then retreat. After all existing lawn grasses and weeds have been treated, you can rake the area and then put down sod or grass seed 3 days after application.

Second: for best results the plants treated with Roundup need to get rain or irrigation a few days before the application and 2-3 days after the application. (This is true if the soil is dry when you are getting ready to plant.)

I hope this helps.

My son spilled mica all over my carpet. To clean it I used my bissel vaccuum. Now I have orange mica in the removable filter area as well as up inside the part that spins. I need to clean it out, but don't...

Load it into the trunk of your car, take it to a gas station and use the tire inflater hose to blow all the **** out of it. May have to get a tire stem in order to use it as a blower.
