Our blog has included many DIY removal tips for stains like red wine, coffee, and melted candy. Now, we must discuss the most disgusting of all: poop stains. Fortunately, removing poop stain from a carpet is possible using natural and homemade cleaning solutions.
Why Poop Stains in Carpets Are Common and Problematic
Poop stains are a very real possibility if you have young children or pets that haven’t been potty trained. Even if the household doesn’t have pets or children, you can still step on dog doo outside and track it indoors.
Feces aren’t just a disgusting eyesore; it is also a serious health hazard. Wet poo contains roughly 100 billion bacteria per gram. This can create an unsanitary condition while the poop is still fresh. This applies whether it’s human or animal excrement.
Carpet Poop Stain Removal Process
- Remove as much of the solid poop as possible. Pick up the pieces with a baby wipe or moist tissue using a pinching motion.
- Spray the area using a homemade mixture of water, non-bleach dish detergent, and white vinegar. A few small sprays suffice; don’t oversaturate the area.
- Let the solution sit until the stain disappears. If the stain remains, apply a small amount of hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. Leave out the ammonia, though, if you have a wool carpet. Alternatively, you can apply baking soda and let it sit for ten minutes.
- Blot the spot using a sponge moistened with cold water.
