How To Remove Butter From Carpet



Butter On Carpet



To clean butter from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1.  First, remove as much of the butter as possible by gently scraping with a blunt knife or old credit card.

2.  Use a dry cleaning solvent such as Carbona or Energine. Dry cleaning solvent should never be used on polyester.

3.  Use a detergent solution.  Mix one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of warm water. Make sure the water is not hot.


You've just sat down for dinner, applied a large slab of butter to a hot ear of corn, and you drop the thing right onto your brand new formal plush carpet.  Next time skip the butter.  It's healthier and the corn tastes just as good without it. 

Personally, I enjoy Tabasco sauce on corn.  Yum!
