          Nope.

          It had spread far and wide by the time I found out about it.

              Reminds me of this story. I was fascinated by it when first learning of it.

                  How many times did you have to mop/wipe it down before it was gone?

                      About two and a half hours.

                        First I mopped up what I could with a towel, which I threw away, and threw away the door mat that had been soaked with it.

                        Then I dumped cat litter on it to soak up what remained standing, and scooped up the cat litter.

                        That left a slick film.

                        So I dumped vinegar on the remaining film and repeatedly wiped it up with rags which I rinsed out repeatedly, probably at least five times.

                          I was wondering what methodology you'd used. That stuff is viscous.

                          My washer & drier are in the unheated garage, so the "liquid" detergent becomes more like a semi-solid; takes forever to get enough poured to do a load in the winter.

                            It was fun because it got under the washer, so I got to pull that out too and clean up the gooey mixture of laundry detergent, dirt, and pet fur.

                              Yea, it's not only thick, but very concentrated, so it takes gallons of water to dissolve a quarter cup of it.

                              You get it wet and basically it just becomes extremely slippery and just spreads out further.

                              The vinegar did seem to help break it up better than water.

                              I dumped about 3/4 gallon of white vinegar on the floor.
