Flooring Q & A with Joel J
Q: During a family cookout, grease from the grill got on the patio and was promptly tracked onto our light-colored carpet. What now?
A: I salute all grillmasters! Try this: Acting quickly, gently blot up as much of the surface grease as possible with paper towels, careful not to press too hard. Sprinkle a liberal amount of absorbent baking soda or corn starch on the affected area. After 20 minutes carefully vacuum up all the powder. If the spot is still visible, continue with this method: Mix one cup of warm water with a few drops of mild liquid dish soap. Dip a clean white cloth in this solution and then put light pressure on the grease stain. Leave the solution on for five minutes. Using another clean white cloth, gently blot the stain. Repeat until the spot is no longer visible, then place paper towels over it. Hold them down with a heavy object and leave overnight to absorb any remaining liquid.
