Cooking Oil Spill in Trunk >:(
I was pretty excited about using my deep fryer. And I had no misgivings about placing that 3 gallon container of peanut oil into my trunk. Imagine my surprise (and resulting verbal fireworks) when I discovered that the container dumped half of its contents onto my upholstery and into my tire well by the time I got it home.
For those of you wondering how fast a trunk liner can be removed - just under 5 minutes flat.
Thanks to a hefty container of kitty litter, a sacrificial shop vac, and some simple green. I have the trunk itself (all of the metal body panels, the spare tire, the jack etc) pretty much clean.
Here is where I need your help.......................
That molded-trunk carpet piece, as well as the flat, carpet-covered support panel (that sits on the spare)- is still saturated with cooking oil. Does anyone have any ideas of how to get it clean. or maybe where to get a replacement for a reasonable price? I feel pretty helpless about this sort of thing.
