One of my ferrets got into a bottle of Ferretone (oil based treat) and it is all over the carpet. Any suggestions on getting it out?

Is it colorless? Try a degreaser maybe.

You'll likely need a shampooer.

Just get some more and pour it on the rest of the carpet.

A good creamy hand cleaner works as a good stain remover. Available at Murray's.

Not sure of the chemical name-I think its trichloroethelene-also known as brake parts cleaner-you can purchase it at a auto parts store for 2-3 bucks-but check the contents and test it out on a area that is not seen first-Ill try to remember tomorrow to read a can and post the proper spelling. it works on delicate fabrics too as a stain remover.

trichloroethylene: for you chemistry buffs C2HCl3.

My chemistry textbook defines as:

A highly volatile inhalation anaesthetic used mainly in short surgical procedures where light anaesthesia with good analgesia is required. It is also used as an industrial solvent. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations of the vapor can lead to cardiotoxicity and neurological impairment.

Translation: It'll get the grease out, but you and your ferrets could get stoned on the fumes...then fall asleep. Use with plenty of ventilation!!

Dookie-

I would suggest running a seach engine on ask jeeves or something like that......run carpet stains or stain removal.....it will give you lists of how to get out anything.

I used to have off-white carpet in my last home and got out red pop by using the methods recommended.
it will probably be a 3-4 step process!

I use it for hand cleaner, small blue container. go-jo or something like that. On the lid in big letters it says great stain remover. thats the one.

used it on laundry only for stains.

Dookie-

Go- Jo might work but remember Dawn takes it out of pots and pans why not try that before you run to the store.
