How do I clean cat vomit from carpet?
We love our cats, but they can be a pain at times. One way they can be a pain is by constantly vomiting on the carpet. This could be from over eating or just trying to get rid of a fur ball. Whatever the reason, they always seem to hit the carpet and avoid the tile. Luckily, these types of stains are generally easy to remove. Here is how.
First, you need to gather the needed supplies. You will need a general spotter, a vinegar spotter and some white paper towels or cotton towels. To make the general spotter, fill a spray bottle with water and add a tablespoon of a mild dish soap. Do not use automatic dish soap or laundry soap because these are too strong. To make your vinegar spotter, mix one white part vinegar and two parts water in a spray bottle. Now that you have your supplies, we can begin.
- Step 1: First, you will need to remove as much of the cat vomit as possible. Use a towel and remove all of the solid material and then blot the spot with a dry towel until no more of the stain transfers.
- Step 2: Now you will take your general spotter and mist it on the spot. Blot the spot with your towel and repeat this process until no more of the stain transfers. Be careful to blot and not rub so that you do not damage the carpet surface. also be careful not to get the carpet too wet which will cause the stain to reappear later.
- Step 3: Take your vinegar solution and spray it on the spot. Blot up the solution and repeat a few times. This will help to remove the residue left behind by the general spotter.
- Step 4: Allow the carpet to fully dry before putting it back to use.
That is it, you have now removed a cat vomit stain from your carpet. Keep a bottle of mixed up general spotter and vinegar spotter handy all the time because you know it will happen again.
