If you’ve spilled oil on your carpet one of the things that we recommended to do is to put baking soda on the spot, put enough down to absorb all the oil into the powder. Leave it for at least 24 hours and make sure no one walks across the spot, which may cause it to track dirty baking soda through the home.
The next morning, vacuum the baking soda, that’s of course if it’s soaked it all up. If the soda is still very wet, make sure you apply more to continue absorbing the oil. You want to leave that on overnight, run the vacuum over it. If you’ve still got a little bit of a stain in your carpet you want to use a mild dish washing detergent such as dawn mixed with warm and blot out the stain using a terry cloth towel. Blotting technically is where you’re using a towel and you’re putting a little bit of pressure on it and a turn as you are releasing the stain.
If this does not remove the spot, its time to call your local professional carpet cleaner. They will most likely use strong oil removing chemicals (similar to paint thinner) that are extracted back out of the carpet. Depending on the type of oil, there could be a permanent stain so its best to always act as fast as possible when dealing with spills.
