1. Protect yourself and the rest of your home.
Wear disposable rubber gloves to protect and prevent your hands from getting dirty. you should also have an open plastic leather bag close by. so that you can put dirty items inside the bag. rather than exposing them dropping them all over the house on the way to the trash can.
2. Clean the stools up.
You will have to remove it before it dries onto the surface. as it will be very hard to clean up if it does. cleaning up the diarrhea is best done by wiping it up using tissue paper towels or rags. which can be disposed of away after use.
3.Use a cleaner in the area.
You will have to sanitize the area and make sure that your dog doesn’t think that it has a new spot to stool. Use a wiper that is safe for your floors first. This will make sure the area is actually clean. Then use a pet odor neutralizer. This will get rid of any stench that might summon your dog back to the same spot.
- Pet odor neutralizers are been sold at any pet store. ensure that the one you buy is safe for the surface you are cleaning.

1.Prepare for cleaning.
Wear disposable leather gloves to protect your hands from having contact with the stools. Get a leather bag so that you can drop dirty items into the leather bag. The aim is to prevent spreading the dirt anywhere else in the house.
2.Clean the stool up as soon as possible.
Ensure to clean up the mess before it gets dries on the surface. This is best done by wiping up using any disposable kitchen paper. Or by using towels that can be thrown away after use.
3.Remove as much of the stool as possible.
If there is any waste matter caught in the carpet, try to use the side of a kitchen knife or cake slice lifter in a sideways stroking motion to try and cheer the matter to the surface and pick it up freely.
4.Blot the area and rinse the area until you can’t see the feces anymore.
as soon as the size of the “spill’ is no more visible, pin it down gently onto it with a towel. or other types of disposable rags, to clean up as much water as possible. Ensure to prevent too many amounts of pressure as this can push the detritus deeper into the carpet.
5.Consider using a carpet cleaner.
If you have a damp-dry carpet cleaner run that on top of the area. The cleaner will immerse the area in carpet shampoo and pull it out again. Ensure to spend a lot of time focus on sucking up the soiled shampoo. So that you can detach as much of the dirty water as possible.
- redo this a number of times for maximal benefit.
- If you do not have a wet-dry carpet cleaner then you should start thinking about hiring one or employing a professional carpet cleaning company to do their best.
- However, always know that diarrhea can and does stain, so if you are not able to get the carpet cleaned quickly, (before it dries up) then you should consider using these other methods by hand.
6.Use a solution of biological washing detergent on the area.
The dog mess contains protein and biological washing detergent is good at breaking this down because it contains enzymes.
- sprinkle the area with the detergent and then soak up the excess.
- To wash out the detergent from the carpet, rinse the carpet with clean water and then dab it up as you did with the solution.
- The sake of this practice is that it is good at removing stains and smells from carpets and rugs, so even if the carpet is noticeable there is a low chance of odor attracting the dog back.
- check any cleaner on your carpet before making use of it. check the color-fastness of the carpet in a separate spot, where it won’t notice that much if the color does run.
7.Consider using a household product if you don’t have a commercial product to use. (CLEAN UP DOG DIARRHEA)

This cleaning method is roughly one to one mix of white vinegar and water. So to 1 cup of white vinegar add 1 cup of water in a basin. Soak the spot with the mix and then blot.
Continue to repeat the method as many times as needed.
- A different cleaning method that has a strong deodorizing effect can be made by mixing 16 liquid ounces of hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of dish-washing liquid and a spoon of baking soda.
- Apply this on the stain and leave it to soak in for about 5 minutes. soak up the excess with a towel. Then use clean water to rinse the spot and gently clean up the excess with spongy material.
