Best thing to use for carpet *stains* - Page 2

post #31 of 49
I just became the proud owner of the Bissell SpotBot for which you can buy pet stain and odour remover. It is a deep cleaner that cleans all the way down. I tested it out on some old stains i had (though i couldn't really see them from the surface and it took up so much! I got it mainly because i have an off-white carpet in the living room...and of course that's precisely where Lucky prefers to produce her hair balls and exactly where rambo likes to show me all the cat grass he ate! LOL

we use natures miracle and found it works the best. we also have a handheld rug shampooer that we use (mainly we just soak the area with water, then use the suction mode) when we clean up vomit.

if your kitty is overshooting the box, you could try doggie piddle pads under the box. we do that and it catches the urine so it doesn't stain the carpet. bonus part is, they are cheap at wal-mart, and just get tossed when they get stained.

Sorry this is kind of off topic, but does anyone know how to get dried paint out of a carpet?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Are they actually called doggy piddle pads?...I think I will try and find those.

Hi frawri, sorry to hear natures miracle isn't working for you, i've been very happy with it. Is there any other product you've found that you like better? If so, please share them with us, i'm always open to suggestions. Have a nice day.

i think they are officially called "puppy housebreaking pads". i think the ones at wal-mart are better than the arm & hammer ones, because they are bigger. i just buy "ol roy" brand.

I use two steps...

First thing I do is use this stuff called OUT! that I can get at any grocery store for the odor. For removing the stain, I use Windex. It HAS to be Windex because the generic versions don't work the same way (I already tried..).

I wouldn't be able to use windex, as my cat would lick it..but I will check out the OUT! stuff. thanks.

That’s ok, I just kept asking for help until I found a product that worked for me. I belong to another site, and this is what one of the ladies told me to use. Hydrogen peroxide, dish detergent, and baking soda, depends on how much of an area you have to clean up as to how much you use of each product. I got a plain spray bottle from Wal-Mart, and put 3 cups of Hydrogen peroxide in it, then 2 tsp of dish detergent, (don't use bacterial detergent) and 3 tablespoons of baking soda. Shake it up, and use. It really works great, and I never had any problems with my guys re-marking the area that I cleaned up with this stuff. Mater of fact, I never had another problem with them marking at all. I hope it works for every one else as well as it has for me. It all in all cost way less then any product they have out there, and works just as good. God bless

I have two chi's, they use Puppy Housebreaking Pads. And we get them from Wal-Mart. We get about 36 of them for 6 something, close to 7 dollars. Works great, and is the best price out there. I have seen others with the same count, and they want 11 dollars and more for them. That to me is insane. LOL

Well, if the urine has gotten soaked into the carpet, just using cleaners on it won't work. You'll need to suck it out some how. Bissell makes this tiny little carpet shapooer called the "Spotbot". It's one of those, set on top of the spot you wanna clean, run the program and walk away type gizmos. Kind of expensive but worth it I think (~130$). What I did for really soaked in spots is use boiling hot water, pour onto the spot (don't be too liberal or the urine spot will spread, just enough to soak the spot), and use the handle attachment to suck out all the water. The water dissolves the urine and you can suck out most of it. Just repeat until the water comes out not yellow. And then after that use a enzyme cleaner like Urine-off. The normal spotbot function is pretty nice for vomit or poo accidents.

I need something to clean up vomit. It needs to safe for my cat, and reptiles and also for me. I have asthma so it cant have a very strong chemical smell or vapires.

Any ideas?

Stains...a fact of life when living with pets. I just wanted to thank you guys for letting me know about the SpotBot, I just added it to my wedding registry!!!

I do not care for Resolve, it seems to bleach my carpet without actually removing the stain.

I have also tried using Oxyclean on stains, and while it does remove the stain, I get the same "bleached" effect, a circle that is way, way lighter than the rest of the carpet, and those nasty little granules are left behind and irritating to vaccum up, and I have to scrub way more to lift the stain.

With the Woolite, I just spray it on, rub it gently a couple of times in a circular motion with a paper towel, let it sit and come back later and vacuum it up. It couldn't be easier
I tried the woolite and it's strong doderizer smell is toxic to me as I am senstitive to fragrances. IT is so strong and lasts for days, makes my eyes feel like sand. It didn't get rid of the urine smell either and I am not going to reapply it, I am taking it back. Not recommended fro those that are sensitive to overpowering fragrances.

I have to say the puppy pads under the litter box would work out to prevent further stains. My mom has had a similar problem. And short of getting new carpet or a steam cleaner,if you are on a budget Wal-Mart has some stuff I think hartz makes it. It is safe to use around animals,(I know from experience) It smells really good, and it works. You can also make your own with all natural ingrediants. I will have to get the formula from my mom.
