How To Remove Feces From Carpet





To clean feces from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.

Before using the first solution listed below, attempt to gently scrape up as much of the substance as possible from the carpet while being careful not to push it further into the fibers.  Now apply the first solution listed below, allowing it to remain on the affected area for roughly five minutes.

Now blot the area with a white cloth until no more of the substance comes up.  Using cold water, rinse the area thoroughly until all of the cleaning solution has been removed.  If the feces remains on the carpet, then repeat the steps listed above once more.  If after a second attempt the substance remains, retry the procedures listed above using the second solution listed below.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1.  Use a detergent solution by mixing one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of warm water.  Make sure the water is not hot.

2.  Mix 1/3 cup of white vinegar with two thirds cup of water.


This is not a fun stain to deal with as I'm sure you are very aware.  Rather than attempting to write something witty I'll just say that you have our sympathies.
