How To Remove Turkey Grease From Your Carpet

The holidays are always a wonderful time of the year. People come together with friends and family to dance, exchange gifts, and eat lots of delicious foods. The not so fun part is hosting a lot of people in your home, which tends to mean you will have quite the mess to clean up afterwards. The most popular food to be found during Thanksgiving is the turkey, of course! You will always have that one clumsy cousin who drops their plate on your beautiful new carpet. No worries, there are solutions to removing the turkey grease stain.

Removing Turkey Grease From Your Carpet:

First, you will want to thoroughly clean any of the excess grease from your carpet. Do not rub; scrape the grease off instead. Rubbing will just cause the stain to set deeper into your carpet. Always use cold water as well to make sure not to set the stain.

Next, sprinkle baking soda onto the stain. Let this sit to absorb the grease, then vacuum up the baking soda. Again, do not rub; this will cause the stain to penetrate deeper. Do not use bleach; this will stain your carpeting worse than the grease stain.

Finally, you will want to get an old rag or sponge. Then use a cleaning solution to blot the stain with. You will want to blot until the entire solution has been soaked up along with the grease stain. 

DIY Cleaning Solution

For the cleaning solution, many companies suggest making your own. You will need 8 oranges, 12 lemons, vinegar, and a jar. Take the rinds and place them in a jar. Next, add vinegar to soak the rinds completely with vinegar in the jar. Place the lid on the jar and let it sit. Then, pour this mixture into a spray bottle to utilize for grease stains. If you do not want to make your own, you can purchase some at your local hardware store.

The sooner you see the stain, and begin cleaning it, the better chances of lifting the stain out completely. Don't put it off; clean it as soon as you notice the stain.

BONUS TIP: Removing Turkey Grease From Your Car:

Everyone takes home some delicious turkey leftovers. You might hit the brakes too hard and end up with them all over your car seats. If this happens:

First, remove all excess grease. Remember, do not scrub the area-- it will cause the stain to set.

Next, using vinegar mixed with warm water, spray the stain and let it soak. Then vacuum up the solution. The vinegar will also help remove the turkey odor from your car.

So the next time someone drops turkey onto your carpet or car upholstery, you will be prepared to remove that grease stain so you won't have to talk about it every at Thanksgiving get-together. A carpet cleaner can also come in handy for this.
