Question:

OMG HELP!! How do I get cat diahorrea off my rug?

Ok last night my kitty had a bit of an upset stomach and umm... went to the toilet all over my white rug!!! It is machine washable so I washed it twice with tons of detergent, the smell is gone, but the brown stains are still there! Any ideas??

Answer:

Put the rug in the wash machine with enough hot water to cover it...add two scoops of Oxy Clean..let the machine agitate for a bit to mix it all up and then turn the wash machine off..close the lid and let it sit over night or longer. Then add detergent and continue the wash cycle. It should take the stain out..it works on vintage linens with set in stains and brings them back to white again. Although...even though the smell is gone, hopefully the scent is gone for her, so to be sure...after you remove the stain..soak it again but with white vinegar, this is the only natural substance that will remove pet odors...then...rinse and rewash with detergent again. Yeah it's a process..but if this is a prized rug, it would be worth it. If it's just a basic rug you can easily replace, then toss the rug and buy another one.

Vinegar works very well on stains. Trust me! My dog has had an upset stomach several times, but you can't tell! I know you took care of the smell, but for future reference, vinegar takes care of the smell too. Spray/pour some white vinegar on stain, scrub with a carpet brush/scrub pad, rinse if possible, then vaccum. Hope this helps

Try the Bissell spotlifter powerbrush deep cleaner. This thing is amazing. My dog gets the occasional bout of diarrhea on the carpet and this things gets it all up. It scrubs the carpet then suctions up the nasty water.

Peroxide and baking soda. Use a tablespoon of baking soda to a small bottle of peroxide. Totally saturate the area and let it sit. This should help.
