If once the stain gets deep into the fibers of carpet, it can be very difficult to remove it off.

This way you can transfer maximum amount of stain from the carpet to the cotton ball and make the remaining process much easier. Remember, you just have to blot and not rub the stain otherwise you will end up making rest of the carpet dirty as well.
When you have finished blotting the stain with alcohol, apply moderate amount of home based cleaning solution for carpet. To make your very own carpet cleaning solution, mix one part non bleach detergent of laundry into four times warm water. Pour the mixture on the affected area and let it settle in for 2 3 minutes.

You can calm down when you see the greasy stain disappearing from your expensive accessory, but the task has not finished yet. Sometime there is still some residue left in the base of the carpet which can appear after a few days. To get rid of that, rinse the affected area with water and dry the carpet thoroughly with the help of clean cloth. Now your carpet is completely clean and stain free!
