Okay, so my two-year old skipped his nap and decided to dump half a bottle of Monkey Sudz body wash into the carpet instead. I guess a lot of you know how effective this stuff is and how long a bottle can actually last you.<br><br>
So you all know what a fight I'm having trying to get it out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> He couldn't pour it on the linoleum... anyway, I was wondering if there was any way I could kill the bubbles and get this soap out faster. Would it work if I put a few glugs of veggie oil or something on it to make the body wash actually work for it's money? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
On a side note, I am NOT pleased with this boy! I'm in Canada so getting this stuff isn't quick or too cheap to ship. And it was chocolate covered cherries too. Ahhhhh, I sent him to bed and he marched right on in there and fell asleep all by himself. No boob! He knew I meant business <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

My first thought is vinegar. Do you have any kind of steam cleaner or water extractor? Maybe you could dump a lot of water and vinegar on the carpet and suck it out, and repeat with more until you see the sudsing going down.<br><br>
Good luck!

I don't even own a MOP (says the mama who just scrubs the floor on her hands and knees) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I'll try the vinegar though, thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I would think salt would help. I'm just thinking about the time when I put dish detergent instead of dishWASHER detergent in the dishwasher and had suds everywhere!! My mom told me to sprinkle salt all over it and it would kill the suds and make it so much easier to clean up. Worked like a charm.
