Removing Dog Poop Stains from your Carpet
The process that you should take to remove dog poop stains from your carpet is incredibly thorough. So make sure that you’re ready for all of the time and elbow grease that you’re going to put into it.
What You Will Need
- Rubber Gloves
- Paint scraper (optional)
- Stain Remover or warm water/liquid detergent mixture
- Old toothbrush or other brush
- Paper towels or standard towels
- Half vinegar/half water solution
- Baking Soda
- If there is any hardened poop on the carpet, you’ll need a paint scraper. Use the scraper to scrape away at any excess poop before you start working at the stain.
- Spray the floor with some sort of stain remover, allowing it to soak for the period of time mentioned on the bottle. If you do not have this, then mix up some warm water and liquid detergent and scrub it into the floor with an old toothbrush or some other type of brush that you may have on hand.
- Dry the area, and keep repeating this process until you can no longer see any staining. Now, your mileage will differ depending on the depth of the stain. It could take 20 minutes; it could take a couple of hours.
- After the stain appears to be gone, you want to make sure that you prevent the area from having any strong odors. Make a solution of half vinegar and half water, blotting the area with the liquid. Then sprinkle baking soda on the affected area and allow it to dry overnight. In the morning, you should wake up to no stain. If any stain is left, repeat the above process again.
