    Default Carpet Cleaning

    Dog threw up in two places on carpet. It probably set for 5-10 minutes until we found it. We have tried cleaning with a standard spot cleaner (Resolve), with no real results. Still a faint yellow stain.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    Spot Shot. Comes in a purple and orange spray can, found at WalMart and the like. Removes anything.

    The best solution is prevention.
    Get a good "Scotchgard" type application.

    I had the same thing happen and tried the WOOLITE spray with no results.

    I've had good luck with Nature's Miracle. I buy mine at Petco.

    Used the Spot Shot about 24 hours after the incident and it made a drastic improvement. I really have to look to see it now. Maybe one more time. Thanks.

    Baking soda, vinegar or the homemade cleaners like detergent are the effective way for carpet cleaning!

    We had a dog vomit stain on a light colored carpet that wouldn't come up regardless of what we tried. Thats was until I tried Simple Green which did the trick.
