Oil and grease spills are very common in many homes especially if there are kids.
If you can clean it up as soon as possible you have more chances to remove the stain completely. You can follow a few easy steps:
First of all try to scoop off as much of the oil or grease as you can using a knife or spoon. Then, soak a small part of a white cloth in dry cleaning fluid or mineral turpentine and clean the stain inwards from the edge with blotting motions. Avoid over wetting and rubbing as you may cause further damages to the carpet.
Once the stain has been removed absorb excess moisture by applying pressure using an absorbent cloth. After that, prepare a solution with a teaspoon of approved wool detergent, one teaspoon of white vinegar and one litre of water. Soak a small part of a cloth and clean up the treated area using blotting motions as previously then absorb excess moisture.
Finally, using a white cloth rinse the area by applying clear cold water with the same blotting method. Remove excess moisture then leave a white cloth on top of the treated area and blow dry with a fan. If you cannot remove the stain with this treatment call a professional carpet cleaner as soon as possible.
