Hey,

My house caught fire and some of the carpet were burnt. And some of it didn't and there are smoke stains on it. My wife tried to wash it but it didn't go. Can someone share some helpful tips to remove it?

"Smoke Stains" is a vague description of the problem but smoke damage will typically  consist of soot particles and various tars.

generally these will be treated with cationic surfactants but there are many variations that may need to be considered, which is why fire damage restoration is a specialist field.

Attempts to treat by the untrained utilising inappropriate chemistry may well have set the stains or at least rendered removal more difficult.

Every problem has solutions but many of those remain out of invention. However, you can Mix 1/2 cup powdered all-purpose cleaner with 1 gallon water and use a sponge dipped in the solution to scrub the stain away.
Allow to dry after rinsing thoroughly to remove all chemicals.
