I tried everything had nothing to lose but to replace carpet so I tried WD-40. I sprayed it on, let it sit for a few minutes, and pressed it out. It took a while and a few cans, but it was cheaper than replacing a whole carpet.

Source: I had tried everything else from peroxide, ammonia, hairspray, acetone.

Spilt Varnish on Carpet

Hi David. Try a product called "Greased Lighting." It works wonders. It's worth a try.

Spilt Varnish on Carpet

Several years ago this happened to us, NEW carpet. Broke my heart. We tried WD-40 (yes, WD-40), someone had told us about using it. It removed the stain from the carpet, wall paper, and vinyl flooring. Did not even leave a stain. We saw someone remove tar from carpet with it also! Good luck (09/21/2004)
