How to Get Butter Out of Carpet




If your love of butter could rival Paula Deen’s, you’ve probably had a butter-related incident at some point in your life. And even if your affection for butter is only an ordinary, necessary attachment to all those ingredients that make your dinners delectable (salt, pepper, garlic, olive oil . . .), you might someday face a rogue pat of butter. A clumsy fall, a wild dinner party, or an unruly child might cause some butter to land on your hardwood floor or even your carpet. The horror! Learning how to get butter out of carpet can be frustrating—if the butter is soft, it could seep into the fibers and harden, and if the butter goes unnoticed it might be pressed down into the carpet and create a greasy mess. Luckily, we’re here to help! We’ll teach you how to get butter out of carpet.

When you’re learning how to get butter out of carpet, remember to act fast. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove the stain. Also, if you’re using any new products, please remember to do a test patch on an unimportant area of your carpet beforehand. That way, if the product damages your carpet, you’ll be able to hide it. 

1. SCRAPE. First, you need to scrape off as much of the butter as possible. Try using a butter knife, spoon, or some other tool that is gentle and blunt.

2. ABSORB. After that, lightly sprinkle the stain with an absorbent, powdery product that can soak up the excess butter. You could try baking soda or cornstarch, both of which are inexpensive and easy to find. Let this sit for 15-30 minutes and then vacuum it up. The powder should have removed some of the butter’s grease. Repeat this step if necessary.

3. CLEAN. Now, go back over the stain with a soapy mixture of dishwashing liquid and water. Quick and easy to prepare, this solution should remove the excess grease left by the butter stain. When you’re finished with this step, remember to rinse the area with water to remove the soap. Then, blot the area with a rag to absorb excess water.

4. SPONGE. If the stain persists, apply a small amount of dry-cleaning solvent with a sponge. Blot until the stain fades away. Use this product sparingly and be sure to do a test patch beforehand. You never know how the product might react with your carpet.

5. FINISH. You’ve just learned how to get butter out of carpet! If you act fast and keep these multi-functional products on hand (cornstarch, baking powder, dishwashing liquid), you should be able to quickly and easily remove any future pesky butter stains.

Of course some stains are more difficult to remove than others. If your stain still isn’t gone after you’ve completed the method above, try repeating the steps a second time.
