We got back from having a very nice dinner out to find that our (huge) Great Pyr had had diarrhea all over the cream colored oriental rug. No stores open and only about 2 oz of Nature's Miracle in the jug. It was about 80 degrees in the house so the smell. . .need I say more?
It's never fun to come home to a surprise like that! We've had indoor animals for years and my sister-in-law told me the easiest tip for pet messes (poop, too) - hydrogen peroxide. Just clean up the mess, then pour enough peroxide over the stain to cover and leave for a few minutes. Clean up with a rag. If it's set in, it might take another try, but it always works and even gets the smell out. So simple! (06/22/2006)
Glad you saved your nice rug. You might want to order some "No Rinse Body Bath" for next time. After you have removed most of the solid matter, and blotted well. Then spray with solution of No Rinse, and wait. May take a few sprays, but usually stain will vanish. If dog food has a lot of food dyes then mix with the hydrogen peroxide and No Rinse (03/13/2007)
I just did equal parts of white vinegar and hot water sprayed area and used a damp towel and iron on high and steam on the carpet the stains are gone. Yea!
