Why are grease stains so difficult to remove from your carpet?
Everyone loves fried foods from a fry daddy, or even straight from the wok. Oils like vegetable oil, coconut oil, or sunflower oil are perfect for frying up your favorite meats and veggies. However, cooking grease is also easy to spill and can easily wreak havoc on your home’s carpeting.
First things first: If you have a grease carpet stain, you must act very quickly. The longer the grease spill sits on your carpet, the deeper the carpet stain will penetrate. If the grease stain is able to dry completely it will be incredibly difficult to remove and you will definitely need some tough stuff like Bio Oxy Stain Remover. Bio Oxy Stain Remover has been specially formulated to remove difficult carpet stains from grease, animal fat and oils.
Attention: Do not use any all-natural techniques from DIY-blogs such as pouring sugar or cornstarch on the grease spill. This can actually cause the grease to bond even tighter with your carpeting, which can cause the stain to be even more difficult to remove. For serious stains you need a serious product.
Tips for preventing grease stains on carpet
Oftentimes grease spills happen when the cook is transferring a skillet of fried goodies from the kitchen to the dining room table. You may want to place the fried items on a paper towel on a plate and then place another paper towel on top for good measure. Not only will this blot out some grease from your food, but it may also save your carpet.
Grease stains on carpet may also occur when you’re eating in front of the tv. Some people choose to have a rule that family members cannot eat on the carpet. Others use trays of food that can only be eaten close to the coffee table. It is very important to ensure that no one leaves a half-eaten plate of food on the carpet. This is an easy way for someone to walk by and accidentally knock over the plate onto the carpet.
