How can I remove pancake syrup from my carpet?

Syrup Removal from Carpet

If dropped on the floor, pancake syrup can make a sticky mess. It can be even messier if it gets embedded into your carpet fibers. When cleaning capert stains consisting of pancake syrup, make up a solution of one teaspoon of dishwashing liquid to one teaspoon of warm water. Pour this into a spray bottle and blot to remove carpet stains. Blot again with clean water to remove any sticky, soapy residue from the carpet.

this tip worked. while i was away my dogs got into my cabinet and destroyed the syrup bottle all over my living room floor so there was a lot to clean up but it did work. after it dried it was still a little sticky so i redid the process and then everything was fine.

Please review this tip, as I believe you meant to say 1 tsp of dishwashing liquid into a spray bottle of warm water.
Thanks, enjoy reading these tips.
