Faeces Stain

How To Get A Faeces Stain  Out Of Upholstery:

Step 1:  Scrape up as much faeces or diarrhoea as possible from the upholstery without spreading the substance any further.
If it is a diarrhoea stain go to step 2;  if a faeces stain go to step 4.
Step 2:  Place an absorbent, bicarbonate/baking soda, onto the stains, and let it soak in for up to 15-20 minutes.
Step 3:  Scrape or vacuum up the bicarbonate/baking soda, which should have absorbed some of or all the liquid in the diarrhoea.
Advisory Hint: Dependent on the amount of the diarrhoea on the upholstery you may need to repeat the above step to completely remove the diarrhoea stain until no more liquid is absorbed by the bicarbonate/baking soda.
Step 4:  Mix a solution of two cups water, one tablespoon washing up liquid, and one tablespoon of white vinegar.
Step 5:  Using this solution, blot the stain from the faeces or diarrhoea with a clean cloth.
Step 6:  Next, blot at the stain until the liquid is absorbed.
Step 7:  Repeat steps 5-6 until the faeces stains or diarrhoea stains are removed from the upholstery.
Step 8:  Now that the stain is removed using cold water and a clean cloth and sponge the area to remove the cleaning solution, and then blot dry.
Helpful Hint: Be sure to get the upholstery only as wet as is necessary to remove the stain.
Step 9:  Apply some hydrogen peroxide to the stained area with an eye dropper.
Before using either the hydrogen peroxide  (6% solution), test it in an inconspicuous area to make sure it does not harm your upholstery.
Step 10:  Now that the stain is removed use some cold water and a clean cloth and blot the area to remove the cleaning solution, and then blot dry.

  • Here Is What Our Happy Customers’ Said:


    Tom was brilliant-when he arrived he was friendly and very professional. Tom carried out a thorough check of the  4 different carpets and pointed out some staining etc that he would be able to sort out. As the carpets weren't as bad as expected, he was honest and fair and charged slightly less than what I was quoted. We went out running errands while Tom was hard at work and when we came back, the carpets where looking tip top! He even did a bit of extra hoovering in the entranceway. When Tom left, the place was immaculate - he was neat and tidy from start to finish and we couldn't be happier with the work done today. Highly recommended, Thanks so much Tom!
