Rent a heavy-duty steam cleaner. The steam is a natural killer of bacteria. I even have a hand-held steamer that I love. It not only removes stains, dirt, and grease, but kills bacteria. (09/01/2006)

I would use one of those enzyme cleaners that break up organic matter, like Nature's Miracle or Bac Out. Maybe use that with a steam cleaner. (09/01/2006)

Rug Doctor will extract alone, if needed, after scrubbing with brush and old towels by hand, using a weaker liquid antibacterial hand soap/hot water solution, nearest to the carpet's color, (wearing long rubber gloves). Then go over it several times using hottest tap water which is close to steam. Caution: Some backing on carpet may shrink or separate from it's own backing or shrink when wet/hot, so do whatever you do with the Rug Doctor do lightly and quickly. It works better than you think. Before walking on it, allow it to fully dry (and brush it up before drying). Good luck and God bless you. (09/03/2006)

Plain peroxide will do wonders. Pour it on the stain and use a wet vac to clean it up after it has had a few minutes to really soak in. Use a fan to dry after you have sucked up as much liquid as possible. Good luck. (09/05/2006)
