You love your pet, but you do not love your pet's accidents. Pet accidents can happen often while house-training puppies, but they can also occur with older pets. Before punishing your four-legged friend, make sure you rule out any medical issues or behavioural problems. Pet faeces can leave substantial stains on carpeting, especially if it is left too long on the carpet. The fresher the stain is, the easier it will be to remove both the stain and the odour. If you clean the stained area thoroughly, you can minimise the chances that your pet will recreate a stain.

  1. 1

    Scoop up any solid matter with paper towels or with clean, dry towels.

  2. 2

    Blot any moisture with additional clean towels.

  3. 3

    Mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture liberally in the area of the pet stain.

  4. 4

    Blot from the outside of the stain in toward the centre with towels. Blotting from the centre toward the edges of the stain may cause the stain to spread.

  5. 5

    Rinse the stained area liberally with club soda. Blot the carpet well, until it is almost completely dry.

  6. 6

    Sprinkle baking soda over the location of the stain and allow the baking soda to sit for one to two hours.

  7. 7

    Vacuum the baking soda up from the carpet.

  8. 8

    Repeat the club soda rinse and blot the carpet until it is completely dry. If the stain has not been completely removed, repeat the process.
