I don't have wool rugs, but I use Nature's Miracle spray pretty successfully on my carpeting. I looked at the directions on the bottle, and it doesn't say either way that you can or cannot use it on wool rugs; just says for use on all surfaces including carpets (recommends testing small spot in corner). You can purchase it at your local PetsMart if you have one. They sell a small size for under $10 which is nice if it doesn't work (but I bet it will). Then afterward, you can buy it in a much larger size, which per fluid ounce is a much better deal. So funny you should ask this question -- right before I logged on to Yahoo! Answers this AM, I had to remove a urine stain -- a gift from my little 5 lb. chihuahua! Thank goodness she's not a Great Dane! (only for that reason)!

Hi First thing if it is still wet dab area with towels to absorb as much as possible. If the urine stain is brown then it is a sticky residue problem. I would recommend using a wet vac and slowly pouring water on the spot and vacuum it up at the same time, to remove the sticky residue. If the stain comes back in a few days you may have to do this a few times. If the stain is still visible than use a little carpet spotter on it. If it has gone yellow then it is a PH problem. You can try using vinegar (one part vinegar to five parts water) to see if you can remove the stain. You can also try “Nature's Miracle” this is a liquid containing enzymes that feed on the organisms that give urine its odours. Sometime urine stains cannot be removed. The main reason for stain to resurface is the soap that you leave behind. The most important thing to do is rinse the stain with a wet vac and water to remove all the reside. In my experience, Nature's Miracle is your best bet. Good luck! From a carpet cleaner of 14 years

I'm a floor manager in a Specialty Pet Food Store (Not Petco or Petsmart, a very high end store), and allow me to give you a few tips... Trust me Simple Solution will work, even if its soaked to the carpet pad.... there is no need of replacing carpet. Simple Solution is amazing, its not only bacteria fighting enzymes but they add a bacteria fighting bacteria. This bacteria only works when its at least moist. the best way to clean is to use simple solution, let it soak in all the way to the carpet pad. Then clean up with a wet rag. Then spray a little bit more, making the area just slightly damp, this will kill the bacteria that cause odor. Do not be afraid to repeat a time or two. DO NOT DRY IT OUT!!!!
