Instructions on how to remove oil stains from your carpet
Baking soda works great, but in an emergency, talcum powder will also work.
1. Sprinkle the powder on the stain and leave it from a few hours to the over night, depending on the oil stain size.
2. Vacuum the powder. If any stain remains, try blotting the stain with some cleaning detergent for breaking down oil and grease:, Fairy liquid or other washing up liquids work well. However, the better the quality the better the result, so I will personally go for a branded washing up liquid.
3. Blot with a damp cloth using fresh water to rinse it.
Remember: Never scrub a stain as it can damage its fibre. Blot from the middle of the stain moving outwards.
