OT - Pet Stains - Which Cleaner?
Any recommendations for a rug cleaner for things like pet throw up?

Thanks!

I tend to use just plain ole' carpet shampoo but one time I used Oxy-Gen (I think that's what it's called--blue bottle--by Bissel maybe...you add it to your carpet shampoo) and I loved it. It's just a little pricey so we don't buy it much.

I had some "pet stain" stuff but it didn't work. I also used Woolite for the carpet and that didn't work either.

Not sure about particular brands, but if you still have residue or smell after you clean--baking soda is a wunderkind for all kinds of smells, etc! You can get Arm&Hammer rug deoderizer stuff (with Pet Hair release too!) made just for pet odors and it comes in different scents. Sprinkle on the rug, let it sit, vacuum it up.

You can also just go with straight baking soda. I clean everything with it....my hair, my face, and dog-smelly rugs!

It is leaving a "yellow" stain that I can't seem to get out. I'll try the baking soda!

We used to use some stuff called "Nature's Miracle" I think. It was in a white bottle with a red lid. It smells really fruity and does the job wonders! We had to get it at the pet store (Petco/Petsmart). It's pretty pricey, but I love the smell of it and how well it works. We had problems with our dog peeing on the same spot because she didn't like the stuff we were using to clean it until we got this stuff.

If it's a stain you could try mixing up a paste of baking soda and water to scrub into the rug--but be careful, it could bleach out the color of your rug.

I use "spot shot" for all stains... it's a miracle worker! It comes in a big blue can with an orange cap.

Urine Gone is an excellent one for any biological stains. It has enzymes that eat the bad stuff out of the pee, poop or throw up. It does not always get all the yellow out, though. Were you guys saying that white vinegar will take out the yellow?
