Default Cleaning a rust spot on carpet

Anyone got a good trick for this?? I have a rust spot, and I've tried a few cleaners, but none seem to really work. Any Ideas?

track down or rent a steam cleaner for the home with hand attachments...... this will get almost anything out of your carpet... it also works well for getting the cigarette smell out of a used vehicle....

Will do... I guess good, old fashioned elbow grease won't work on that one, eh??

Thanks for the reply.

EESH... Had fun with that one, did you?? LOL

Thanks for the tip. I suppose I should rent one and do all 3 cars and touch up a few spots inside the house. Way to waste a Saturday.

K now I know this will sounds messed up but apparently it works. The girlfriend was watchin some cleaning show last nite and they showed how to do this exactly. They took medium grade sand paper scrubbed to get the heavy stuff off then they used dish soap sqirted right on the spot and used some elbow grease an a moderatrly stiff brush and started scrubbing and it came out. I know I was surprised myself. First thing the girlfriend asked is if we have any sandpaper that she could use(she got BURGUNDY) paint on our rug when she painted the room. We'll see how long it takes her to actually try it.

HAHAHAHAHA I get the same thing, If I get the ball rolling she would be right behind me then when I want to stop for a break or something I get yelled at for stopping, The of course she has to stop for a smoke then I gotta get her moving again.
