Son in law has just got back from caravan holiday and his generator fell over in the caravan spilling some petrol on the carpet. Anyone and ideas how to get rid of the smell of petrol and the stain on the carpet.
Found this on google
Sop up as much of the gasoline as possible with an old towel or newspaper.
Pour baking soda or kitty litter on the area to draw the gas out of the carpet
Let the baking soda or litter sit on the carpet for three to four hours before using a vacuum cleaner or shop-vac to clean
Mix a solution of 1 qt. warm water to 2 tbsp. Dawn dish soap.
Use a medium bristle brush to scrub the carpet to clean out any residual gas from the carpet and eliminate any stains
Allow the carpet to dry completely and repeat the process if any stain or lingering smell remains.
