Removing stains from rayon, silk and wool
The excess solid is removed by scraping it off by hand or by a blunt tool. The stained area is applied with any dry cleaning solvent. A dry spotter is then applied. A pad of absorbent material that has been moistened with dry spotter is placed against the stain. The pad is replaced by another one as soon as it gets stained. When the stain ceases to be removed, the pad is removed. The stained area is then poured with the dry cleaning solvent and the fabric is allowed to dry.
Removing stains from cotton and nylon
The caked on substance is scraped off the affected fabric. A wet spotter is then applied, starting at the edges of the stain and moving towards the center. The fabric is then rinsed thoroughly and dried. In addition to cotton and nylon, this method can also be employed to remove barbeque stains from other materials like linen, polyester and spandex. Stains should be removed as quickly as possible, to promote faster and easier cleaning.
Removing stains from carpets
If a BBQ stain has freshly been acquired, the wet stain contents should first be absorbed by a paper towel. Then a solution of detergent in water is applied and blotted. If it does not work, baking soda followed by white vinegar is applied which causes the stain to come to the surface from where it can be blotted away.
If a BBQ stain has dried, it should first be scraped off using a blunt knife and then vacuumed. A commercial carpet cleaner is then applied according to the label instructions. If a BBQ is oily, baking soda can be placed on it to pick the remaining oil in the carpet, after the stain has completely been removed. It is allowed to set for a number of hours and is then vacuumed.
