    Well my dog vomit last night on my carpet. She is fine now.


    Does somebody know of a good home-made remedy in getting rid of the vomit stain? I don't have anything commercial to get the stain out right now.

    :thanks:

    My dog actually had a full blown runny bowel movement on the carpet. The only thing that got it out was a commercial product. :(
    I tried water/vinegar, but that didn't help at all.

    It might work with vomit though.

    I use commercial sprays, too. The ones specifically for animals are the best. Vinegar/water would help take the odor out. Otherwise, if you have an oxy type of cleaner, try that.

    At the time it happens, you can sprinkle salt on top, let it sit, then vacuum up -- it absorbs some of the stain from the carpet and really helps. Once it's dry, though, you'll pretty muc h have to use a commercial product. Nature's Miracle works well.

    once its dried- you are out of luck. I use commercial stuff too. I use woolite pet stain with oxygen...I think that is what it is called. It works pretty good.

    Thank you all for the good advice. I purchased some commercial stuff. A little bit of the stain came out. I am going to spray it again to see if I can get more of it out.

    :thanks:

    The Oxyclean-type products work very well on organic stains.

    Shaving cream. It will take out any stain, just spot test it in a corner or under something for color fastness.

    We buy the cheapest we can find. I haven't found a stain it doesn't remove. That includes dog messes.

    I also use it on the desks at school. Takes off gobs of glue and crayon like magic!

    Hmm.. might have to try the shaving cream on the old red kool-aid puke stain from last year that I haven't been able to get up despite the long list of things I've tried.

    Any particular brand work better??

    Special, I have red stains on my white carpet. Nothing got it out. The commercial steam cleaners said they could not get red out either. We learned how to hide it under furniture and rugs.
