Removing antifreeze from carpet?

Any suggestions for removing antifreeze from carpet?
I moved my heat exchanger inside under my bench/bed and had a small drip in the hose connection that I didn't catch.
I have a spot that is soaked about the size of a 5 gallon bucket.
I do have a professional carpet machine to extract with but not sure what type of chemicals to use or if just soak with water rinse repeat over and over would be best.

Extract as much as you can first then use a 50/ 50 simple green shampoo with then rinse, last shampoo with a 25% tide powder is what I'd do, safe but time consuming.

I had some spill and never could get it out. I wound up removing and replacing the carpet.

I found on a classic car forum a guy who contacted prestone and they recommend straight water.
I will let you know how it turns out.

Is the carpet installed in such a way that it's easy to take out? If so, you could just soak it in a kiddie pool several times in a row.

You know what's in a kiddie pool don't you.

Thanks for the replies. It came out no problem with straight water several applications and a simple green last application for good measure.
