Grease Carpet Stain Removal

  1. Remove the excess oil with a cloth, newspaper or brown paper bag.
  2. Cover it completely with cornstarch, brushing it over the area to work it into the fibers. Let it sit for about an hour.
  3. Vacuum the cornstarch from the carpet.
  4. Repeat the process if needed with larger spills.
  5. Apply a little liquid detergent to the stain (most detergents are able to remove grease, but for tough stains you may need to try a liquid dish soap). Scrub the detergent into the carpet with you fingers or a toothbrush and let it sit for 3-5 minutes so it has a chance to break down the grease.
  6. Pour a little water onto the area and blot it up with a clean, absorbent cloth right away. Repeat until all of the soap is removed.
  7. Absorb any extra water with a towel.
