How to remove oil stains from wool carpet.

To remove oil or grease from your carpet, it will be necessary to use a solvent containing product.  Do not apply solvent containing products or WoolClean Dry Spot Remover to bonded carpets (carpets that are not tufted or woven, but where the pile is bonded to the backing).  When applying WoolClean Dry Spot Remover or other solvent containing products, have the work area well ventilated.

1.  Absorb any excess oil into a white cotton towel by BLOTTING (not rubbing) the area affected.  If the spot is grease, gently remove any solids using a nylon spatula.  Be careful to work from the outside of the spot toward the center, so you don’t spread the spot.

2. Moisten an absorbent white cotton towel with WoolClean Dry Spot Remover (or other solvent containing carpet spotting product) and gently BLOT (do not rub) the carpet surface with the oil or grease.  Repeat this process until no more oil or grease is transferred into your towels.

3. Moisten an absorbent white cotton towel with a WoolSafe approved spot cleaner and gently BLOT (do not rub) the carpet surface where the juice spill occurred.

4. If you have a dry absorbent carpet cleaning product (such as Host or Capture), apply the product according to the package directions and leave overnight. 

5. Remove the dry absorbent carpet cleaning product by vacuuming.   Any remaining residue should be left to professional cleaning.


  IMPORTANT!
ALWAYS read and follow the care instructions and any warnings provided by the carpet manufacturer.  Wool carpet with certain dyes/finishes may require special treatment.  If in doubt, contact SHOWCASE CARPET CLEANERS for advice or service first.  NEVER PROCEED with any stain removal without knowing the exact nature of the stain involved.  NEVER USE any retail product to remove stains from your wool carpet without seeking the advice of the manufacturer or you could void your warranty. The information contained in this spotting guide is provided without any guarantee or warranty as to results. 
Proceed at your own risk.
