Unhappy

I somehow cracked my heater core when i was changing out some hoses and i ended up with a puddle of antifreeze on my floor boards. A buddy was tellin me that antifreeze is really corosive and i needed to clean it out good.. my question is what is a good way to get antifreeze out of black carpet. It is still really soaked.

if antifreeze was "really corrosive" it would eat up your engine...

simply use a shop vac and get the mass of it up , then just shampoo your carpet and re vacuum it up.

Shop Vac time! But, don't feel bad, I just had to do the same thing.
