How to Remove Stains and Odors

Knowing how to remove pet bile stains from carpet is key, but in addition to knowing how to clean your carpet and get rid of stomach acid stains, you will want to learn how to eradicate any pesky odors that remain (which is common). If the homemade carpet cleaner solution doesnt quite do the trick, the best carpet cleaner for dog or cat vomit is an enzyme-based cleaner. Enzyme-based cleaners work on both the stain and the odor:

  • Soak the stained area thoroughly with the cleaner and then blot with a clean, damp towel.
  • Repeat this process, adding more cleaner if needed, until the stain is gone.
  • Rinse the area with cold water. Keep in mind that you can also cover the area with a damp towel and let it sit for up to 72 hours (just keep the towel damp the whole time), which will keep the enzymes working to eradicate extra-stubborn smells.
  • Let the carpet air-dry (opening the windows and/or using a box fan will speed up the process) and finish by vacuuming.
