Wink Help with removing DAMPRID liquid from carpet

I am a new RV owner of only 1 month. Haven't even taken my first trip yet.

Since I live in Florida, one of the first things I did was to put DampRid containers in various areas of the RV as suggested. No problem there. The DampRid works great in removing excess moisture. However.........

In the process of replacing one of the DampRid containers that was full of liquid, the container slipped out of my hand and the liquid spilled on my bedroom carpet. YUCK !!!!!

I immediately threw a towel over the area and tried to soak up as much of the liquid as possible, BUT...........every time I check on the spot it is still WET.

Has anyone had to deal with this problem before? If so, please give me some tips on how to get this yucky stuff out of my carpet. OR..... will I need to replace the carpet.

Thanks for much for your time and replies.

I don't really have any experience with the damprid liquid on carpet but maybe some of those carpet cleaners that come in a can. My DW dropped/dumped one of our damprids in our TT. I wet swiffered several times to get that very slick spot cleaned.

Thanks Buck, I really appreciate you taking the time to reply.

I know what you mean "about the sticky stuff", it makes the carpet gummy. My concern is that the DampRid chemical is still pulling out moisture in the air, but into the carpet.

I will try your suggestion.................

Thanks again and HAPPY TRAVELS !!!!

You are welcome. It may take two or three scrubbing and vacuumings. I colorox wiped our spill 5 or 6 times the wet swiffered it a few times. A pain in the rear but I finally got ride of the slippery film that was left by the damp rid moisture.
