    What removes gasoila from a carpet?

    Any suggestions?
    Trying to find some stuff called texno, which is a spot remover.
    It's great to be alive and pumping oxygen!

    Is it a stain or smell that you are trying to remove?
    Those who dance, appear insane to those who do not hear the music.
    Those who believe, appear ignorant to those who do not know God.

    Just get a 5 gal bucket, turn it upside down and put it over the stain. Tell the customer you got her a free coffee table.

    If you can find some R-11 it will clean it up quite well (the real R-11, not the R-11 flush)

    One time back when we used it to flush burn outs I used always have some on the truck, one time I was changing bearings on a blower and the lady had white carpet, when I was pulling the blower a little bitty dab of grease fell on the carpet, as soon as I touched it it kinda exploded,I mean got bigger, and the lady went ballistic, I took some R-11 and you couldn't see where it ever was

    Just a thought, R-11 has come down quite a bit in price,

    Brake Cleaner ?

    I have used Non-clorinated Brake Cleaner on my own carpets with very good luck. Spray and soak it up with a towel instantly. Worked good. Better be careful with it, it could melt the carpet if your not careful.

    Cheap too ! But be careful.

    If sense were so common everyone would have it !

    If all else fails, insurance will take care of it.

    If it's what I'm thinking, kinda like Leak Lock, or pipe dope.

    Maybe email them, and ask what they suggest.

    Have a carpet guy seam in a patch, if you can find a piece like from a closet that matches the rest of the carpet, a good carpet guy can patch it and make it almost invisible.
