[quote=darkeyedgirl]This is a "gross tip" but still... it works, so here goes.
(Cat related, too!)
For barfed up hairballs, let them dry out for a day or two, then run a vacuum up over them OR pick them up w/ a paper towel. To get the watery-now-dry puke-spot out of the carpet, wet it with carpet cleaner (I use a cheapo brand from Lowes) and scrub w/ a washcloth.
The hairball is way easier to clean up once it's hard!
Yes, I do that too! MUCH easier to clean up! Although, it's kind of embarrassing when I forget and someone comes to visit and sees it just lying there! They're probably a bit disgusted!
