Quote: Laurel wouldn't it be good to share the solution with everyone ?
Yes Suzi, it probably would and if Stephen wants to share the answer I gave him, he can. OK?
These days I try and not get too involved in the forums as it ALWAYS ends up in arguments and I'd rather not.
Drive your car to Slough, park it with the keys in it. Some turd will then nick it, drive it around for an evening ruining the engine and then put a match to it down some dead end lane.
You then claim on the insurance and buy a new one. (8oP>
Colin, thats a bit unfair on Slough
And don't leave the keys in it, as the insurance company won't pay out

Quote: Thats what you pay them for
Ha Dunc - ought to be that way, but we have to clean up our house before the cleaner comes
Suzi - Gerry suggested a deep layer of bicarb. of soda for an extended period. I'm going to try the valeters first, then Gerry's method if no joy there (unless I get a windfall and buy a new one first)...
(or leave it in Slough - have to get the map out, though I might just go and visit Ganto in Dublin - would have the same effect
Do you need to have it "stolen" Stephen?
recommends rubbing alcohol here....whether that's for the carpet or yourself I'm not sure!
Hmmm, I wonder would a cheap bottle of cider work?
@Ganto - or "disappeared??".....
A shot of the Lynx Effect might do it.

Don't try and pin the smell on me, Ganto!
Spill a bottle of milk onto it........
Should clear the oil smell after a couple of days.
Not sure how you get rid of the sour milk smell though?
Try a bag of odour control cat litter (based on Fuller Earth - not the paper type). This is designed to adsorb odours and chemical / oil spills (it used to be a standard lab safety kit for dealing with small spills)
a bit more about it and the sort of product
Spread it around the area of the spill, leave for a day or two, brush up and repeat until the odour has gone then hoover up the residue
Should do the job
I tried that once and for weeks I had cats following me all over trying to cr*p in my car.
serves you right for leaving the kippers on the front seat with the doors open!
Quote: Take it to a car valeter Stephen thier upholstery cleaner will get rid of it.
I owned my own valeting business for 4 years, and if oil has gone into the seat, then no machine will get it out....
if it has gone into the carpet in the footwell, then the only true way of removing it would be to remove the carpet, and to hot wash it with solvent cleaner so the oil is washed out of the carpet, rather than pushed further in with other methods.
