Carpet Pads for Slideout Stains

We are planning on replacing carpeting this spring. Last year, we noticed that at the full extension point, our slide out rollers would periodically leave a few grease spots along the route, along with the regular matting down from the roller.

1st, is there a way to clean the rollers to stop the grease deposits?

2nd, do the plastic carpet mats work as the manufacturer suggests (Slide out Slickers)

3rd, Isn't this about the same material as a desk chair mat, could you not cut your own from this?

We just replaced our carpet and now use the plastic runner while we travel w/ frequent in/out of the slide. We bought a few feet from Home Depot, long enough to cover carpeted area + 2 ft. The runner has small plastic "cleats" that help it stay put while the slide moves over it; standing on it on startup also helps. We paid about $1.40 per foot. It is only 33" wide, not as wide as our slide travel, but works great and keeps the new carpet clean.
