See if you can find this product in your local hardware store.

I used it few years back on a kool-aid stain on very light tan carpet.

Oil is very difficult to remove. Best to use a carpet cleaner or shop
vac to draw the shampoo out. A strong detergent such as TSP might
work. Tap the carpet with the suds (scrubbing can damage carpeting).
Any cleaning solutions should be tested (on closet carpeting or
elsewhere). Better yet, it may be better to hire a professional for
this job.

you know, sad to say, i guess prevention is the key word here. i mean ,
i can see now why people, when they move into a place, the first thing
they do is run somewhere and buy rugs, large or small to cover the rug;
area rugs. then you dont have to worry about any of that.

oh i spilled chocolate, coke, and coffee on one big spot and thot it
would never come out.

can you tell me why these companies who build apartments put light
colored rugs in them? makes no sense at all.

my cousins had white rugs in their house. yes i said white. what were
they thinking?

Take your time when you vacuum a carpet, especially a plush carpet in which dirt is sure to be deeply embedded. One pass with a high-powered upright is not enough. Go over each section of carpeting several times, and work slowly to allow the suction to remove all the ground-in dust and dirt.

You may try for cleaning your carpet lemon and salt. This cuts all the oil which are on the carpet and make you carpet clean. After, using this lemon and salt wash your carpet using soap.
