How do you get dirty old chain oil off the carpet?
It’s like a yellow pages ad this. “It’s just possible you could save my life”
One of WD40’s main ingredients is stoddart solvent- basically, dry cleaning fluid. Course it also contains a load of light oil but you can sometimes exchange a black horrible oil stain for a light one.Posted 6 years agomolgripsSubscriber
I figured out how to do this when I was a kid – saved my neck many a time. Jab the straw from a can of WD40 into the pile, and pack some bog paper around the top. Squirt, and the WD40 goes into the carpet, dissolves the oil and the tissue paper soaks it up. Works a treat – you can then use soapy water or something simple to get rid of the WD40.Posted 6 years agosteviecaptMember
i clean carpets for aliving, be very careful of the chemical products you put on the spot, ive seen no end of times people putting vanish on a spot only to bleach their carpet,always try warm water and a small bit of fairy liquid first, not every carpet reacts well to chemical sprays, usually if your carpet was scotchguarded in the first place warm water will do the jobPosted 5 years agosomafunkSubscriber
I took the easy option a few years ago when i dribbled fork oil on my biscuit coloured carpets in the living room and through the hallway as i absentmindedly wandered through the house with my forks upside down, i lifted the carpets and threw them in my neighbours skip, now got bare floorboards which are far easier to clean but admittingly a bit drafty and one of these days i might get round to sanding them down and filling in the cracks then varnishing, but then again i doubt it as i’ve far better things to do with my time and anyway…i’ve lived wi them like that for 4 yrs and if i do spill anything it’s no big deal.
