How do I remove tar from carpet?
Answer: It is likely this is a permanent stain but you can try applying a small amount of rubbing alcohol to a clean cloth. Blot the stain using a small brush, sponge or cloth using light strokes from the edges of the stain to the center. When you reach the center of the stain, lightly pinch in an upward motion, do not rub the stain. Wait 5 minutes. Then, use your upright or portable carpet cleaner over the affected area.
