:sad2: :Push:
I spilled a bunch of it on my carpet. Any ideas on how to get it out? Will a regular carpet cleaner do it?
:worried: :suspiciou
Thanks for any advice!

I think I read something about using ice cubes to "freeze" the honey so you can "flake" it off the carpet... Let me see if I can find something more specific....

go to walmart or wherever and get some bissell oxykick floor cleaner, spray it on, and let it soak for a bit. wash out w/ a wet rag.

i work in the appliances department at best buy, which includes floor care :smile: but seriously, one of the managers at work uses that stuff and calls it 'jesus in a bottle.' it gets out everything. all you need is something to cut the stickiness, and that should do it. might want to try drying it with ice and the using it if just using it doesn't work.

Ok, some websites say that honey is basically like wax. This one website explains how to get wax out of carpet--makes sense...

Good luck!

If you need a cleaner, try Folex. It's available at Home Depot. It works WONDERS. I even use it as a stain remover on clothes--even gets rid of OLD stains...
