How to Remove Mouse Glue From Carpet

Save

Glue traps provide a nontoxic, non-messy way to eliminate rodents from a home. The strong glue used in these devices to trap mice is difficult to remove from other items in a home such as carpets or rugs. The key to completely removing the glue from the carpet is to treat the stain immediately. Since the glue does not completely dry, delaying treatment only allows it to set in further and possibly get ground in by foot traffic.

Things You'll Need

  • Butter knife
  • Vegetable oil
  • Peanut butter
  • Soap
  • Water
  • Brush or sponge
  • Towel
  • Slowly pull the glue trap away from the carpet. It helps to use a butter knife to scrape the carpet fibers away as you pull the glue trap off.

  • Apply a small amount of vegetable oil or peanut butter to the glue stain, and allow it to sit for a few minutes.

  • Use a butter knife to remove as much of the peanut butter or vegetable oil as possible.

  • Apply a soapy solution of water and liquid detergent to the area, and scrub it with a brush or sponge to remove the remaining oily residue from the carpet.

  • Rinse the sponge in clean water, and remove as much of the soap residue as possible.

  • Blot the area with a towel to remove excess moisture, and allow the carpet to dry.
