I've tried carpet cleaner and shampoo...still a dark blotch on a grey pile. Carpet is only 2 years old.

  • Try Dawn dish soap or rubbing alcohol, or a good degreaser.

    Steam clean? Or insurance claim?

    Try hydrogen peroxide. Spray some on and brush it a bit. Should be gone in half hour. Or try shave cream. Same process.

    Resolve powder; use a scrub brush on it then vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Then spray with hydrogen peroxide.

    It may be too late for this but have you tried using baking soda? If applied first it can do a good job of absorbing grease. Just apply liberally, take a stiff brush and work into the carpet and then vacuum. Maybe give this a try even though you've already used carpet cleaner. Dawn Dish Soap also might cut the grease but would require a lot of repeated rinsing.

    grab a few cotton tea towels (clean) and get your clothes iron out, turn it onto perm. press setting to heat. Once it's hot, put the clean cotton towel over the grease mark and put the iron on the towel, it should melt the grease onto the towel, keep doing this with clean towels until spot is gone, oh, and this also works on candle wax that gets onto carpet! Once you are done, just wash the tea towels like normal!

    Thank you! I tried 3 of the suggestions from previous answers..peroxide, soda, and Dawn...Dawn was a success!

    Thanks John.. I tried 3 different applications in different areas of the grease. It was Dawn soap that worked.
