    I use woolite rug cleaner. Do a test spot and see how that works out

    Franks advice was good! However, if he has a Compressor handy and for some reason he doesn't use the Wool-Liite method, I'd tell him to put some Sawdust in a pail, add a little Odorless Mineral Spirits, or outside, use Lacquer Thinner, enough to make the sawdust damp, not wet, stir, then use a plastic garbage bag, add the damp sawdust and skin, and after he ties it off, bounce it for about 15-20 minutes, take it out, shake out the sawdust, and blow it clean! Another method! It should clean up!
