Damn lily pollen

That'll never come out

So my boyfriend and I have just moved into a great flat which we are renting. On Saturday, we decided to have a mini house warming so I decided I better clean the house and get it looking spick and span. Whilst tidying up the living area I somehow knocked over a vase of lilies which I had received the previous week. Water went all over our beige carpet but worse still the lily pollen went everywhere too! I immediately did the first thing which is the biggest no no for pollen removal and that is rub. I rubbed and rubbed until I spread the yellow pollen all around and deep into the carpet. So then I spent the day googling how to remove lily pollen stains. Of course every suggestion said 'Don't rub'. Great, too late for that. A little more investigating and I found there was a stain remover called De Solv It which is supposed to do the trick. 3 supermarket trips later and no stain remover and my blood is boiling because I don't want a giant stain in the middle of the living area for our friends to stare at and can't understand why supermarkets have so little variety in the cleaning section! The coffee table wasn't even big enough to conceal it! We ended up moving the couches around to a layout that made no sense just to cover it. I was hoping once the stain dried up it wouldn't look so bad. But it does. It's orange, big and very noticable. I want to punch it every time I see it.
