Help!! ***UPDATE***

Hi, ladies! I'm new, I joined this group because I have a problem. Yesterday, my SO's friend came over and had tar on his shoes. There are now tar spots on my carpet! How can I get it out. We rent and I don't want to lose our deposit because his friend didn't take his darn shoes off! If you have any suggestions I would really appreciate it!


WD-40 is a miracle worker!! I sprayed the tar and 15 minutes later I used a washcloth and rubbed it out with no problem. So for future reference WD-40 will get tar out of carpet. Thanks for all your help.

I'm sorry I don't know the answer but here's a bump for you so someone else can help you!

I am a busy working mom to two very active girls.  I love my kids, play on the floor in the fort with them, take them to the park, and love them always!  I can't imagine life without them!

I googled it and found more than one answer that says to use WD-40. Some other suggestions were Goo Gone and toothpaste. So at least we have a few options. SO is out now getting the WD-40 and Good Gone.

 I would say googone.  I don't think that will hurt it so you aren't losing anything by trying.  I think hairspray gets out sticky things...I think what you'd need is to release the stickyness...then if there was any stain left you could deal with that.

I don't know if it would work but, I would get a white terry cloth towel, put it over the tar and then usurp a hot iron over it out. That's how I get cancel wax out of carpeting.
