How To Remove Gravy From Carpet


Spilled Gravy


To clean gravy 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.  Soak the area liberally with warm water (not hot).  Blot dry with paper towels.  Re-soak and re-dry area until the gravy has been removed from the carpet.

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


In the South Park Episode "The Death Of Eric Cartman," Eric and his friends order Colonel Sanders chicken.  Eric eats all of the skin off the fried chicken pieces when his friends aren't looking.  They understandably get rather upset with Eric when they discover the left over skinless chicken pieces, as everyone knows that the fried skin part of the chicken is the tastiest.  They are so outraged that they decide to start ignoring Eric.

To make a great story short, Eric comes to believe that he's died from eating all that chicken skin and is a ghost stuck in a sort of limbo.  I won't spoil the ending but it's a hoot.  Truly one of the best South Park episodes of all time.

So what does this have to do with cleaning gravy from carpet?  Absolutely nothing!  Follow the steps above to remove gravy from your carpet.
