So the tire sealant kit that came with my Soul randomly leaked into my carpet. It's really just an eye sore, I'm very upset. I've poured 91% alcohol on it. Brought it to a detailer to see if they had suggestions. They charged me $10 for a spot clean, but could not get it out. It's in the spot between the seat and the removable mats so it can't really be covered.... any ideas?

I'm not sure what the tire sealant is made of, or what the dealership used to attempt to remove it, but you could try getting your hands on some tetrachloroethene. It's not exactly good for you or the environment, but it cleans really well. I'm unsure of how it would react with the carpet, and you'd want to avoid getting it on the paint, but off the top of my head it's the only thing I can think of that might remove that stain.
