The oil, salt and other tricks are good. However, I went to the local Lowe's (any retailer that rents RugDoctor machines will do) and bought a $2.99 bottle of anti-foam liquid made for the recovery tank of a carpet cleaner. Just a half ounce or so will KILL the suds in a matter of seconds. Just pour a small amout in and let the motor circulate a few minutes, drain and you're done!

As a related issue, any gravity drain plumbing is prone to clogging up if any significant amount of liquid detergent is accidentally dumped down the drain.
 I have seen a few damaging floods due to this!!!
