How do you remove antifreeze from carpet?

My neighbor said theres a good spray for it. Any other recommendations?

Take it to a carwash and spray it real good.

It smells like Nickelodeon Gak...Remember this stuff? Evilface, i dont think I want to spray out my interior with a powerwasher :P

My interior is in excellent condition. My seats are great, the carpet is clean (except the antifreeze), the plastic is intact, the vinyl is great, and the dash pad is outstanding. I don't wanna hurt anything.

hahaha well then I'd have to remove my seats and stuff. And it took forever to wash off my floor mat with water. So water is not an option.

well you could try what i did to clean my whole carpet and anything inside the car really....take simple green (dont water it down) and put it in a spray bottle...then fill another spray bottle with water...spray the simple green on the spot you wanna clean...then scrub...alot...then spray it with a little water..and scrub..alot more....then get a shop vac and suck the water out and let it dry....it worked like a charm...but you car will smell like simple green...so i suggest getting some type of stuff to cover the smell up

Right, take it OUT of the car. I got a set of used black carpet that was a bit dirty and I took it to the carwash and cleaned it real well, let it set for a day in the sun and dry and came out great.
