My son dropped a bottle of baby oil on the carpet in our hallway. I
grabbed it up in a flash, and didn't think the damage was that bad ---
but, now the small spot has spread to 4 times the original size. We
cleaned it w/ a steam cleaner and it looked ok, for about 2 seconds
and now looks the same. Besides rripping up the carpet or putting a
rug over it, is there anything to do to make it not so noticeable ?
Thanks for the time,
I absolutely love Spray and Wash Stain Stick for greasy stains. I don't see
why it wouldn't work on carpet. The carpet is probably nylon and we certaily
have nylon clothing. It is a miracle as far as I am concerned for getting
out grease and oil stains especially on cotton knits. I have never had a
grease stain it would not take out after leaving it on overnight. Even black
crease like they use on machines comes out of my husband's shirts. I would
suggest you saturate the carpet with it, it is like a soft deorderant stick,
leave it overnight and then wash with warm soap and water, scrub and keep
sopping up the water as you go. If that fails (and I am confident it will
work) you can have a piece of carpet cut from under a couch or other piece
of large furniture and have it swapped for the place that has the stain.
Hope this helps.
I'll certainly begin by trying the dishwashing soap and shampoo, since
I have them... Then to the stick and finally, the idea of swapping
carpet patches is a good end alternative... Thanks to all who posted
ideas for me...
