Things you will need

  1. Step 1: Blot the excess grease

    The first thing you need to do is blot the grease stain with a dry paper towel to absorb as much grease as possible from your carpet. You can either use a paper towel or a white absorbent towel. Make sure to avoid rubbing, as it can spread the stain.
