Finally, here is a video showing tips and techniques for removal of ketchup stains from carpet.
This video suggests to use a solution of 1/4 teaspoon of a mild non bleaching detergent, without color, such as a "free and clear detergent," and a liter of cold water.
This is a similar carpet cleaning solution as what is suggested by Stain-Removal-101 in my ketchup stain removal instructions.
