I'm gonna throw in my 2 cents here. having a 2 year old son and a husband
who does landscape construction and rebuilds cars in his spare time, I am
intimately familiar with carpet stains!! but I have one that I cannot
remove-it is a red dye stain from a powdered diet raspberry drink.
any suggestions?

Did you try the boiling water trick? Before you do, can you tell me what else you did? And I would go with the OxiClean paste and let it sit a bit before rinsing it out if the boiling water doesn't work.

As a rule of thumb, boiling water from a small height poured onto any berry stain will remove it. On clothes or on a carpet.

what have I tried? more like what HAVEN'T I tried. but I have tried Oxy.
I have tried Resolve, a homemade stain remover made from vinegar, milk,
borax and lemon juice ( which incidentally kicks the crap out of permanent
marker and other ink stains on clothes ) heavy duty laundry bar soap and
the list goes on. that spot is probably just waiting for me to dump just one
more thing on it and then it's gonna spontaneously combust!!

Gotcha. OK, well then I would go with the boiling water trick. Boil your kettle and then from a height of about 12 inches above the stain pour the water on it. I don't know if it will work, but at this point it couldn't hurt. I reread your post and realized it isn't actual berry juice its the dry stuff. I think I would try the Oxy paste first. Make it thick and leave it on for an hour or so before rinsing. Good luck!
