Cleaning Up Kerosine Spill on Non-leather Couch

Category Furniture

We had an old kerosine lamp fall off of a mantle in the living room and onto the couch. Some of the kerosine spilled onto the corner of the couch. Does anyone know what I can use to absorb the oil? What is good to use for the stain and smell? Thanks!

Sprinkle some old fashioned regular kitty litter over the spill and leave it for at least 24 hours. The kitty litter will soak up the oil from the kerosine. Then remove the cat litter. The spot should be gone. I have done this on carpet and upholstry. It works.
