How to Eliminate Pet Vomit Stains from Carpet
Many times, we talk about urine and poop stains from our pets, but what about vomit? Even if the animal isn’t “sick” per se, they could vomit due to something not sitting right on their stomach or eating too much or other issues. How can you effectively remove the vomit stains from your carpet?
Before you start any stain removal, get rid of as much vomit as you can. It will make your job a lot easier when you are trying to remove the pet vomit stains from your carpet. After you do that, you can start to work on cleaning the stains. The two most common remedies for vomit stains are club soda and Windex.
Club soda is great for stains because the acids in the soda eat away at the acids in the vomit. If you’re going to use club soda, go ahead and pour it on the stain. Let it sit, then use an old rag to gently scrub at the area. Repeat until the stain is removed; it shouldn’t take more than two or three times to get rid of it.
Windex (or generic window cleaner) is also great for getting rid of pet vomit stains. It sounds counterintuitive, but many claim that it works. Just spray it on, let it sit for 10 minutes and then wipe it off away with a paper towel. Be careful if you use this method and you have a cat in your home; Windex contains ammonia and can attract your cat to urinating on the spot. So, you should probably only use this method for dogs.
