I have beige berber and have sprayed Spray N Wash on it. Spray it on, let it sit for a while, and then blot out with white paper towel until paper towel is showing dry. Repeat as necessary.

I've used Nature's Miracle Stain & Odor Remover and just a mixture of vinegar and water. First, blot up what you can, soak the area with either, leave on for a few minutes, and then blot up until dry. If the stain discolored the carpet, you can try some hydrogen peroxide on it. Follow the procedure above, but first test it in a hidden area.

I'm having very good luck with Fantastik (sp?) with Oxy Power on all kinds of pet stains on carpeting, have even used it to clean the "dog's" couch, but I don't have any white rugs, so can't comment on that. I use it as a pretreat, followed by carpet steamer/cleaning machine.

Any suggestions for the smell? It's not as evident until it rains, and then, I just want to scream.

How well I understand my Mother's never letting animals 'live' in the house with us, sometimes. As much as I love my pets, it bothers me to think nice things are being 'ruined'.

The vinegar/water mixture is supposed to neutralize the smell. You're problem may be that it soaked through the carpet, pad and into the sub-floor, especially if it's a particleboard sub-floor. I think the only solution there is to pull it up and replace it with plywood, which I have done.

Nature's Miracle is good! Also a product called Odormute is excellent! we've used the latter outdoors and inside (when necessary) to comlpletely neutralize the odor. It's an enzyme that won't stain your carpet, comes in powder form, easily mixes with tap water and you can keep it on hand in bottle.

For stains, I find "Spot Shot" (the aerosol, not the spray - available in WalMart) to be excellent. If we have an accident in the house (with the puppy), I clean the spot with Spot Shot, then pour Odormute on the spot, soak up excess and let it dry. It goes down deep into the pile and pad, and deodorizes everything.

By the way, with age I guess I've mellowed, but I don't care about the carpeting or the furniture any more. I'm not emotionally attached to it and can always replace it. The animals are firmly lodged in my heart, and they are irreplaceable. I can't imagine life without one of them even on the most beautiful carpet in the world. So, in essence, I don't care about them "ruining" things. Kids do that too, and for that matter so do adults, myself included.
