I too tried the automotive hand cleaner. It worked! I didn't let it sit very long. I blotted a lot first. Used a small amount on a Q-tip, agitated, blotted again, then used damp paper towel. It took the Old English Furniture Polish out 100%! Amazing! Awesome! I'm so happy! Thanks for the tip!

I spilled "Old English Scratch Cover" over on my green carpet. It left an ugly brown stain! We tried a lot of things but nothing worked. Finally my husband tried his automotive hand cleaner, smearing it in good. We let it set a few minutes, then using warm water, began to wipe it up and out. When we finished the stain was gone. You may have to do this a couple of times to get it all, but patience pays off.

You know I have found out that Dish Detergent on a hot, wet wash rag cleans a lot of stuff from carpet. Try a little on the spot that's already soiled. It wouldn't hurt to give this a try. Good luck. (03/19/2005)

You might consider looking on the label and calling the company. They will be able to tell you what to use. (03/20/2005)

Removing Furniture Polish Stains from Carpet

I dripped Old English brown furniture polish on my light tan carpet. The spots were circular up to 1/4 inch across. I blotted what I could with a white napkin, but the carpet was really stained brown. Having checked this web site, I saw the suggestion to use car mechanics hand cleaner. I bought some and used a cotton swab tip to apply the hand cleaner to the stain. I let it sit for 20 minutes, blotted it up, and used a damp napkin to clean the residue off the carpet. The carpet came absolutely clean! My investment was $1.09 plus tax at Walmart (Multi-Purpose GOOP Hand Cleaner).

Note - another web site said to use isopropyl alcohol. It didn't work on this tough stain. Use mechanics hand cleaner. (05/07/2006)
