Removing Dried Pee Stains

I just found two dried YELLOW stains on my $4000 living room rug. Please tell me how to get rid of them before my DH finds them.

I find Simple Solution works really well... spray it on let it sit for 10 minutes, absorb it by stamping down paper towels and then do it again. Test a tiny spot first to make sure your rug is colorfast. It has a tendency to lighten a bit...but I think I lot of it is due to you cleaning just a spot...so when I am all done-- I spray a fine mist over the area and leave it...it tends to lessen the effect of spot cleaning. good luck.

I use Arm & Hammer oxy strength pet odor & stain remover which I buy at Target. It works well.

If this is an Oriental, Persian or good wool rug be very careful what you use on it. They do not clean the same as carpet. I found a product that is very good on some stains left by my DD dog. I bought it at Lowes and it is a 4 step process called Capture Carpet Cleaning System. You mist, powder, rub and vacuum. It cleaned a very yellow spot on a very light beige carpet. It uses a powder that does not seem to leave a residue that re-attracts dirt. Like any brand it advises to test before doing a large area. Good Luck.

I might even have ABC Home and Carpet pick it up , clean it, and deliver it.
Chat with them on the phone, see what they have to say.

Trust me I think we used every product on the market in the past 10 months (two puppies) and this weekend we finally found one that works! It is Woolite, Pet Oxygen. Spray it (do not saturate) and let it stand five minutes and blot with a damp cloth. It even removed stains that were previously cleaned with other products that didn't come out. I told hubby that we need to buy stock in this product! PS. What does the DH stand for? Dear Hubby??

I have the same problem .. When I was in Turkey this year I spoke to one of the Oriental rug salesmen and he recommended that you use only Johnson's baby shampoo. Of course he wanted to make a sale but he said it works the best for maintaining the dyes .
I have used Get Serious which they sell at Petsmart - you have to follow the instructions to the tee- do not use a sponge but it does work .. I buy it by the gallon as accidents do happen and sometimes with Cosmo I am not to sure about the accident part or if it just his independence streak ..
I have not used the baby shampoo as yet as I forgot to buy it .
Good luck !!

Thanks all. It is a wool rug. I have this Pee Pee remover stuff that I've used before, but so far it hasn't done the trick. The stain is still there, but it's not as flourescent as it was before. I'm going to try the baby shampoo route. That sounds reasonable. Ugh, this is not good.

Whenever we have an oops on our carpet, first I soak with Natures Miracle, then blot up. (this destroys the odor). When that is dry, I then use Woolite Pet + Ogygen. (found at Walmart). I LOVE this stuff. It takes the yellow away seconds after it's sprayed on!! A fairly light spray works well, you don't need to saturate-and it smells GOOD!!
**edited to add I just read the back of the bottle- it says safe to use on colorfast wool, nylon acrylic and stain resistant carpets
