My son spilled gasoline in our van can I use my BISSELL powersteamer to clean it out and what product can I use they recommended rubbing alcohol.

Answer: Before cleaning: test for colorfastness on a hidden area. If your carpet color is affected do not use this product. On upholstery, look for a manufacturer’s cleanability code tag. Use on fabrics coded “WS” or “W”. If your tag is coded “X” or “S”, do not use. Do not use on velvet, silk, vinyl or leather upholstery.

Use BISSELL Stain Pretreat for Carpet & Upholstery on heavily soiled areas before using a BISSELL Carpet Cleaner.

To loosen up the stain, generously and evenly spray the area with a grease-fighting product such as BISSELL Stain Pretreat for Carpet & Upholstery. Gently work the solution into the area with 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.

To clean the soiled area, use an upright carpet cleaner such as the Lift-Off® Deep Cleaning System or the ProHeat 2X® Pet with a BISSELL upright carpet cleaning formula such as BISSELL 2X Professional Deep Cleaning Formula, Deep Clean & Protect or 2X Pet Stain & Odor Formula.

If you are using a portable carpet cleaner such as the BISSELL Little Green® or SpotBot® Pet portable carpet cleaner, use BISSELL OXYgen BOOST, Pet Stain & Odor formula or Spot & Stain.
