How do you get puke like this, which is a little dry (but not totally dry) out of carpet.
I did not see your reply before, guess I was typing mine at the same time.Yikes! Is that SHAG???????
Yeah.. get most of it up before you do anything else...
If you have to do this quickly, get a pail of warm water and a large sponge and start damping it (don't scrub it). Just keep patting it with the wet sponge, rinsing and ringing frequently. You will end up with a wet spot on the carpet but that will dry. You can help drying along with a dry towel.
You may have to use a MILD soap but use it sparingly or you will be rinsing for days.
Removing things from fabric the best thing to remember is like removes like. Water based stains/dirt can be removed best with water. The Water molecule's polarity make it the universal solvent...
Which leads me to a Universal Question:
With lots of easy to clean floor surfaces in the house WHY do the dogs and the cats HAVE to puke on the CARPET???????? and I know exctly how much I feed my animals.. How can what I feed them become 7X that in puke? DO they have a secret pouch for the stuff?????
One of my cats found it amusing to not only hit the carpet but to make a deposit in my shoe... which I did not find until I had to use the shoe for work.. Oh never mind...
