How to Remove Lotion from Carpet

Lotions are very oily substances. Care needs to be taken that all of the lotion is removed, otherwise, the area may brown.



  1. Apply Break Down POG to a spotting towel and then tamp and blot the spot. Caution: Do not over-saturate the carpet as Break Down can dissolve the latex backing.
  2. Repeat step 1 until no more transfer is observed.
  3. Apply Matrix Spot Out undiluted. Tamp and blot the area with a spotting towel and tamping brush.
  4. Apply Matrix Release undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  5. Rinse the area thoroughly with water.


Warning: Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix product unless specified in the label directions.
