How do I get out pet vomit from a rug?
Vomit stains on clothing that come out pretty easily with the proper treatment before washing are such a pain when they are on something like a rug that you can’t easily launder. Our old dog with the sensitive stomach has helped me develop my skill set on this stain. Here’s what I have found to be effective:
If you still have discoloration on your rug after the treatment and it is a large area rug, then you may need to rent a rug cleaner to steam clean the stain and the rest of the rug while you are at it. Smaller rugs can be washed in a front loading clothes washer with detergent and Clorox2®–I do this with a braided rug and it turns out really well. With my dog, the vomit varies. It can be anything from the meal she just ate or the water she just drank (especially if it’s too cold) to stomach acid for no particular reason. She is 14 ½ years old so we just count our blessings that she’s made it this long and I keep cleaning up after her. I hope this is helpful; please let me know if you have any other questions, and how it goes.
