    Hi i have had a bottle of oil leak onto my boot mat:(, before i go and buy a new one is it worth trying to clean it?

    If so any good methods, i can not really see it to be honest but needs cleaning out, jet wash fairy liquid? would that be ok then left to dry? cheers all Oski

    Maybe give it a good soak with some degreaser first, then try some Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner (or similar).

    I have just (very successfully) removed some oily finger prints from my light coloured headlining with the APC :)

    Some sort of degreaser, followed by fairy liquid, followed by some carpet shampoo.

    To be honest though I have done the same on an old car I had....nothing got it out :(
