Gearing to Easy Carpet Cleaning When Oil Stains Ruled Out


 
Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Oil stains can be difficult to remove from carpeting, especially if they have set into the fibers. You should be able to remove any oil stain from your carpeting by tailoring your stain removal method to the size of the spill. The type of oil makes no difference.

Oil spills on carpet are some of the trickiest clean-ups in any home. Spilling oil on the hard kitchen floor is frustrating enough, but when it soaks into the carpet fibers, it's a whole new challenge to pull it out. Fortunately, oil is not permanent and can be removed.

Since you won't be able to throw your entire carpeting into the washing machine, it's a good idea to have some do-it-yourself techniques in your back pocket specially if the nature of stains is oil based. Follow these steps and you'll be on your way to a clean carpet in no time.

How to Get Oil Stains Out of Carpet

When trying to remove cooking oil stains, using a paper towel, blot the oil stain. Blot until no more oil appears on the paper towel. Using a washcloth, apply small amounts of rubbing alcohol directly onto the oil stain. Make sure you're blotting, not wiping, as this can spread the stain out onto other areas of the carpet. Mix one quart of water with one-fourth teaspoon of dishwashing liquid. Make sure the dishwashing liquid is a brand that doesn't contain lanolin or bleach.

Apply this water and dishwashing liquid mixture with a sponge directly onto the stain. Blot the affected area of the carpet until the oil stain is no longer visible.

How to Remove Motor Oil Stains from Carpet

Another type of oil stain that your carpets can fall victim to consists of motor oil. It's easy to track motor oil back from the garage and right onto your carpet. When this happens, you'll want to know how to remove oil stains from carpet rather quickly.

Scrape off excess oil with a butter knife. Don't press too hard, as you don't want to damage any of the carpet fibers. Sprinkle a bit of baking soda directly onto the motor oil stain. You can also use corn starch if baking soda isn't available.

Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

Vacuum the carpet. Apply a few drops of dry-cleaning solvent on a clean cloth, and then apply the cloth directly to the motor oil stain. This is a good way to tell if it's working when you're wondering how to remove oil stains from carpet. Blot the stain with a clean cloth. If the oil stain is still visible, mix two cups of warm water with one tablespoon of white vinegar and one tablespoon of liquid hand dishwashing detergent.

Apply this solution onto a sponge, and work the solution into any remaining oil stain residue. Rinse the area with cold water and let dry. The motor oil stain should no longer be visible.

Many spots come out very slowly requiring multiple attempts with the same procedures. We strongly recommend that you do the rinsing step as suggested. Rinsing removes residues that can re-attract dirt later and also assists in returning the carpet to a neutral pH. Sometimes, stains will wick back to the surface of the carpet nap requiring you to do the same procedure again. For extra carpet cleaning power, mix vinegar with the dish detergent, then apply to the stained area.
