How do I get cat puke stains out of a rug?
When he frist puked I cleaned it up with laundry detergent immediately. When it dried there was a stain.

Any suggestions?

1. Either Resolve (powder) or Bissell's Pet Odor and Stain remover.
with the Resolve you need to sprinkle it almost immediately.

4. Thank you.
I suppose it's too late for resolve, but maybe I can get some for the future.

2. spot shot
Buy it in an aresol can. I use it all the time and it really
works no matter how bad the cat stain.

17. I'm also a fan of Spot Shot
It worked ver well for me in a house w/ lots of carpeting ... But, thank goodness I have hardwood floors now -- much easier with four pets and two kids.

19. I think you can get it at a regular grocery store, but, if not
I think a home supply place like Lowe's or Home Depot or maybe even Target should sell it.

3. I just use carpet cleaner but there is an old recipe
you can make. In a small bowl combine; lukewarm water, a squirt of dish liquid and a teaspoon or two of vinegar. Squeeze your sponge in the mixture until you have a nice head of bubbles, then use the bubbles like rug cleaner and scrub. If it's not clean do it again.

11. No -- it's a steam cleaner, not a vacuum
And it gets out everything: cat vomit, wine stains, rust stains -- carpet, furniture, etc. It's wonderful.

9. If it's light colored you can use lemon juice and
baking soda. Baking soda acts as the corrosive and the lemon juice will remove the odor and sometimes the stain.

10. Orange TKO
at least I think that's what it's called.

It's a natural, orange oil based cleanser. Great for little accidents in rugs. ;)

14. I know orange oil is a good cleaner.
I like to use it to clean oil paint off my hands and brushes. It's better than turps. I have some. Not the same brand. It can't hurt to try.

13. One of the idiots I work with would tell you hairspray...
She's on this kick that herbal essences hairspray gets anything out of anything. :eyes:

15. Does she color her hair?
I would think that if it gets anything out of anything it would remove the haircolor from her hair.

I have hear before that hair spray has off lable uses. I think it was as a fixative for pastels.
