I have a small section of my office, the kitchen specifically having foam flooring and I spilled some hot sauce that had oils, and since tried many household cleaning products to get it out, but it's been no use. I tried using floor cleaners, and dishwashing liquids, cif and water stain cleaner. Is vacumming a way to get it out? Can the community help me out?
It looks as if there's turmeric and saffron in the mix?
If you used some liquid (dishwashing) detergent already to cut/dilute/remove the oil, then some water soluble stuff like bleach may remove the colourful pigment.
Check to see if all the oil has been dissolved and removed by putting some water on the stain to see if it forms droplets, (there's still oil preventing the water from a smooth sheeting coat) you must continue to use a drop or two more of detergent and rinsing clean until the oil base of the sauce is gone.
Now, water soluble cleaners can work where the oil base previously protected the stain.
When the oil is removed, soak a cotton wool ball or paper towel in hydrogen peroxide and let it sit on the stain for a few minutes or more. You won't overdo it. There's no need to scrub. The reaction is chemical not physical. Repeat a few more times if it appears to be working.
No? You can try a few drops of chlorine bleach and rinse after a minute or two. If the stain looks lighter, repeat.
Be patient and after a couple of treatments it should look better. Hydrogen Peroxide is a kind of bleach which has no odour; but, is not so aggressive as chlorine bleach.
Read the warning labels on any materials you use and under no circumstances mix any individual cleaning solutions as the reaction can be unpredictable and produce toxic or dangerous results.
