  • I'd try some anti-icky-poo. It's a solution for cleaning up pet messes, but they originally used it to clean up crime scenes. I have dogs, so I always have some on hand. It works wonders.

  • I use Arm and Hammer baking soda, pour it on, let dry and vaccum it up.

    I never heard or the anti-icky-poo though, and it does spark my interest. Where do you get it at?

  • Natures Miracle. It is fantastic on ALL organic stains. Whether it be dog stuff or kid stuff...or Grown sons friensd who had to much fun stuff. It is a little high...but it removes the stain and the smell.

  • I recommend renting a carpet shampooer. If you've never done this before, you'll find that your carpet will improve overall!
