I just ran some pink anti-freeze through the ballast system on my 197 and spilled a couple cups on the grey carpet. Tried to dillute best as I could and mop up with dry towels. Anyone know if there are issues with this stuff vs. carpet? Thanks if any has advice -

I'd have to believe that it could/would. Good thinking about dilluting it down. I'd recommend getting out there and extracting it all......

Thanks jrandol - kinda figured that would be the case. I've got a bunch of towels on it now, and have been walking on them 'sponging' up the diluted mess. Probaby will find out tomorrow when it drys, if I missed anything.

Unfortunately, I've spilled some on mine just about every year I winterize my boat. On my light-grey carpet, I haven't noticed any staining.

Now for the threadjack... why is grey also spelled gray?

I was told, grey was British spelling, gray was the American version. Anyone else got a idea why?

It would probably be worth the effort to wash it the best you can with at least water. I would think the remaining pink that "dries" would be "sticky" in spring, therefore creating a stain.

Good point. Every time I do spill some, the carpet gets soaked from the hose being connected/disconnected.

Spilled on my carpet without staining....still un-nerving and I try not to do so and usually rinse and dry as a precaution...
