When spills happen, the best way to deal with is right away, by dabbing the soil with a clean towel or cloth.  It is very important that you do not rub, as this will just grind the stain further into the carpet.  If the stain is still visible, keep blotting.  Change to a new towel or cloth when the colour starts to transfer.  If this did not get rid of your spot, call one of our Mornington Peninsula Carpet Cleaning experts for advice.  Please do not use generic cleaners on spots as they may make the spot permanent.  Any red or brown coloured soil will require a professionalremoval, but feel free to try the above blotting method immediately to remove as much of it is possible.
