OT What do you use...

...to clean your carpet from kitty accidents and hairballs. My carpet is very light so stains show up very easily. My sister uses Resolve for Animals but I've not tried it yet. What do you suggest.

I have the woolite carpet stick. Once you wipe up the big stuff, you press it down and it squirts woolite carpet cleaner on the spot then flip it over and use the built in brush. I let it dry and then vacuum the spot.

I have hardwood flooring in the main level and off-white carpeting in the basement. Why oh why do they always decide to toss their hairballs on the off-white carpeting?

Setting aside that mystery, I use Resolve for Animals like your sister. It's easy to use and I never see any stain residue even though the carpet is very light.

I have always used Tuff Stuff Carpet Cleaner. I get it from the auto motive center in Wal-Mart. Never had a cat (or dog) go back to the same spot. Cost about $4 for a nice size can.

I don't suppose there's anything for old stains that have set in?

I moved some furniture and found some nice "presents" of brown stuff (and a few pee spots). Dunno if it's vomit or diarrhea. Soaking it in vinager made it lighter, but I would like to have it totally gone. Carpet is a light blue, and these yellow/beige stains are a bit noticeable against it.

I use Shout, the clothes pre stain treatment. I dont know about pee but works great on hairballs and vomit. I douse the stain and let it sit for a day. Next day douse what ever may be left and wipe it out with a damp towel.

The absolute BEST kitty stain & odor remover [yes, old staims included], is a product called "Get Serious". I bought a gallon in 2009 and still have a bunch left. I bought it at Petco at the time.

"Ooops!"
I typed Petco when I should have typed Petsmart. My store doesn't carry it anymore but I know you can get it online in smaller sizes. It's a bit pricey but well worth the investment.
