    How to remove pesticide from carpet?

    I purchased a bottle of pesticide from Home Depot. Well, it spilled all over my carpet in my car and now, I am experiencing some health symptoms. I was wondering how I can remove this from the carpet. The bottle says that is still effective for 3 months when applied outside, so I'm thinking it is some pretty nasty stuff. I tried spraying some carpet cleaner and saturating the area. I then used a shop vac to **** up the carpet cleaner liquid and pesticide. Any recommendations?

    What I would do is wash that carpet with some carpet cleaner, dry it and leave that thing outside (in the sun) and leave your car without carpet until it's safe.

    That is what I did with the car mat. I really don't know that I would want to undertake the job of stripping the carpet out of the car.
