Question by Stuart: Best way to clean dog-pee stains from a duckegg blue rug?
I have a large duckegg blue and white rug (made from 55% wool & 45% viscose), which has a few dog pee stains on it. I have tried cleaning it with my Bissell carpet cleaner but, this has just changed the yellow stains to a dull grey.

The rug was very pretty before (and quite expensive) so I would like to save it if I can.

Does anyone have any suggestions I could try?

This rug needs to be cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner. When a dog or a cat gets around a wool rug, they sense another animal in the vicinity. Being basically stupid, they pee on the wool rug to mark there territory. Most pros’s would probably soak the wool rug in enzymes for several hours, rinse it out, and dry it. With livestock around, the wool rug should be kept out of reach or the animals will pee on it again.

    if the pet urine is not new then you def want to get a professional, because it more than likely soaked into the padding so its more than just surface cleaning.

    1.) Blot out all liquid possible by placing a clean towel on the spot and standing on it
    2.) Apply bacteria/enzyme digester according to directions
    3.) When dry, remove any remaining stain with detergent solution
    4.) Rinse

    *Please test all of them in an inconspicuous area first
