Heavy salt build up on carpet


I left a bag of water softener salt on the carpet in my damp basement and over a period of time the salt must have have leached through the bag and now I have 1/16. - 1/8 deposit build up on carpet. And it is dried solid. Anybody suggest how to dissolve this build up deposit without ruining the carpet.

Thanks.

I've used salt away for a while and been really happy with the cleaning results i get with using it, i personally wouldn't use it for an out board as it can cause a clog up with residue from the solution.

Removing road salt from vehicle carpets is an annual Spring ritual up here. I do exactly as in Neal's post. If it's sodium chloride it should come off with just warm water.
