How to Remove Grease Stains from Carpet
Whether the stain is dropped food or grease tracked in from the garage, the key is to treat the stain promptly. Lift as much of the grease solids as possible away from the fibers using a dull knife. Do not rub because it will only push the oil deeper into the carpet and make the stain larger.
Sprinkle the stain with cornstarch, baking soda or talcum powder to absorb the oil. Use a soft bristle brush to work it into the carpet. Allow the powder to sit on the stain for at least fifteen minutes. Use a vacuum to remove the powder.
Blot the stain with a dry cleaning solvent following the product instructions. Use a clean white cloth or paper towel. Keep blotting until no more oil is transferred from the carpet to the cloth.
If you do not have a dry cleaning solvent or carpet cleaning product, mix one tablespoon of hand dishwashing detergent in two cups hot water. Add one tablespoon household ammonia. Blot the stain with a sponge dipped in the cleaning solution then with a dry paper towel until the stain is removed.
Be sure to "rinse" the area with a cloth dipped in plain water to remove any soapy residue that will actually attract more soil. Repeat the cleaning steps until no more stain remains.
