All spills should be treated promptly for best results and ease of removal. Most spills can be cleaned by gently blotting the spill with a clean, dry, absorbent cloth. The use of a clean, dry, absorbent cloth alone may not completely remove the spill. For further treatment, use a water-based soap mixture that combines 1 tablespoon of a liquid detergent such as Tide, with 16 ounces of lukewarm water. Dampen the cleaning cloth in the mixture and gently blot the soiled area. Avoid rubbing affected area aggressively. Rinse the area with a clean, damp cloth to ensure that all of the soap residue has been removed.
