Pet Soil Stain Information

Pet soil or vomit is a complex mixture of foodstuffs, saliva, stomach acids and digestive waste products. Sometimes, this mixture can stain the pile of a carpet or leave a persistent odor. Follow the tips below to cleanup the stain.

Cleaning Ingredients

  • AMMONIA 1 Tbsp. clear household ammonia in 1/2 cup water. Always pre-test.
  • DETERGENT 1-2 drops colorless, mild detergent or dish washing liquid in 1 cup lukewarm water.
  • ENZYME DETERGENT Mix enzyme detergent per instructions on package and allow to remain on stain recommended time. Do not over wet.
    CAUTION: Enzymes can damage natural fibers like wool. Use with care or call us.
  • WHITE VINEGAR 1/3 cup white household vinegar in 2/3 cup water.


  1. Immediately pick up/blot up as much material as possible using paper towels or a clean, white cloth. A tablespoon makes a good scraper if necessary.

  2. Apply vinegar solution, blot.

  3. Apply detergent solution, blot.

  4. Apply pressure to the spot with a spatula or the back of a tablespoon to work spotting solution deep into spot. DO NOT SCRUB as this may cause nap distortion of the fiber.

  5. Rinse thoroughly with cool clean water, blot until dry.
