  • you can take it to the cleaners if you like, if it is small enough to fit in the washer you can wash it with detergent and pine solor pine o pine...if neither you can sprinkle baking powder on it let it sit from 24 to 48 hours and then vaccum and it will lift the smell as well..good luck!

  • Resolve makes a powdered cleaner that they sell in the grocery store. You sprinkle it on the floor and then take a small brush and scrub it. You leave it set for a certain amount of time and then sweep it up. It smells good AND cleans the carpet. I have used it several times and it works great.  Here is a link to what it looks like and this is Walmart so you should be able to buy it there.
