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:

    What a difference!

    Tom and Margaret visited me on a really bad winters day with  the snow falling. Our carpets, especially the living room hall and stairway, were very dirty. Tom and Margaret set to work and in no time the carpets looked fantastic -  I would definitely recommend Acleanerplace to my family and friends.
