Sunscreen + carpet = ugh

So, how would you guys go about getting the oily residue left behind out of the carpet?

I knocked about ten ounces of sunscreen out of the cupholder and under the front passenger's seat, and most of it has pooled on the back carpeting. The day after I went out and bought some 303 Fabric & Vinyl cleaner... but I still have quite a bit of oily residue left (and the car smells like a beach..).

Other thought: is the 303 stuff safe for use on the soft touch plastics (like the door grab handles)?
