Steps for carpet oil stain removal:

  • Step 1:

    First you need to freshen the old stain by adding some amount of glycerine to the stain. Glycerine will loosen the old hardened stain and add liquidity to the stain as well.
  • Step 2:

    Now dab the stain using an absorbent cloth or paper towels. Keep dabbing the stain to get rid of extra oil present on the stain. Avoid pressing too hard as it can lead to spread of oil to fresh and clean parts of carpets.
  • Step 3:

    Use cornstarch powder or baby powder for carpet oil stain removal. Pour some amount of cornstarch on the oil stain and brush the stain to get rid of visible and trapped dirt. After brushing pour some more amount of cornstarch and make sure you cover the stain completely and leave it for an hour.
  • Step 4:

    Repeat the process of cornstarch or new or old stubborn oil stains. Now take a vacuum cleaner and use it to remove all the cornstarch powder on the stain. Make sure you clean the stain completely and clean the carpet as well thoroughly.
  • Step 5:

    Use oil stain removing soap for persistent and deterrent oil stains. Pour some water and soap on the oil stain. Use a brush to brush and make lather on the stain. Wash the stain repeatedly.  
  • Step 7:

    Extract all the amount of water on the carpet by putting two paper towels above and beneath the stain. Press the towels and absorb extra water. Dry your carpets naturally after carpet oil stain removal.
