Spilled degreaser in trunk

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I had the missfortune of spillning about 2 cups of Chemical Guys Orange degreaser on the trunk carpet of my car. 

The carpet was soaked and the agent had ran all through when I found out what had happened.

I have tried to rinse the carpet with a pressure washer for over an hour, but the agent its still foaming and smelling pretty strong. 

Any tips of how I can get the carpet clean?

Doesn't that whole piece of carpet come out? If so, you could wash it easier. Perhaps a carpet cleaning machine with warm soap would work.

I spilled a whole qt. of oil in mine a few years ago. I never took out the carpet, but I kept replacing the paper towels I used to soak it up for weeks.

A carpet cleaner and a good steaming should also do the trick. The steam cleaner should take the grease out pretty easy.
