Why are pizza stains so difficult to remove from your carpet?

It is indeed so pleasant to pick up the phone and conveniently order a nice XL pepperoni pizza to enjoy with a nice movie on the couch. Indeed, this sounds like the perfect way to relax after a hard day of work. However, if you accidentally drop a piece of pizza on your light colored carpeting, your relaxing evening will be completely ruined as you go into cleaning-mode in a desperate attempt to get rid of the pizza spill on your carpet. You may even become tired and give up thinking, “I’ll clean it tomorrow.” However, the longer the pizza spill sits on your carpet, the deeper the pizza will penetrate into the fibers of your carpeting.
