Vinegar does not stain and could be used with any type of carpet. (carpet close up image by isatori from Fotolia.com)

Having a dog or a puppy that is not trained where to go to the bathroom can leave a big messy stain on your carpet, especially when your dog has soft stools or diarrhoea. One method of cleaning is with OXI-Clean laundry stain remover, white vinegar and baking soda. Vinegar and baking soda are natural cleaners and can help eliminate stains and odours.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Put on the rubber gloves. Fill the bucket with water. Spray OXI-clean laundry stain remover on the stain. Let it sit for 2 minutes.

  2. 2

    Scrub the stain with a cloth or scrubbing brush. Rinse the cloth or brush in the bucket of water, consistently. Scrub the stain out as much as you can. Press a paper towel down into the carpet until most of the moisture is gone.

  3. 3

    Mix 1 1/2 cups of white vinegar and 1 1/2 cups of lukewarm water. Pour over the stain until saturated. Scrub with a cloth or a brush until the stain is gone. Press a paper towel down into the carpet until you get most of the moisture out. Let the carpet dry completely.

  4. 4

    Pour the baking soda onto the area of the stain. Scrub the baking soda into the carpet with a dry scrubber. Let it stand for two hours. Vacuum the area thoroughly.

Tips and warnings

  • For tougher stains, combine the vinegar and baking soda into a paste to scrub with.
