What to do with Oil or Grease Spills on Carpet

Try this easy home remedy to remove cooking stains from carpets. Remember to always do a spot removal test on a portion of carpet or upholstery that is normally not visible.

  1. Use a paper towel and blot the oil stain. Blot until no more oil appears on the paper towel.
  2. 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.
  3. Mix one quart of water with one-fourth teaspoon of dishwashing liquid. Make sure the dishwashing liquid is a brand that doesn’t contain any bleach.
  4. 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.
