Well remember this guy??
Yes.. The totally bad ass senior citizen end of life vomiting and diarrhea all over the carpet dog??
Last week he had another episode of vomiting for two days. It wasn't bad when I was at home but when the partially employed actually gets to work they have to leave Mr. Pukeface home alone all day long.
I am a little embarrassed by the photo below. My dog yakked this pile up about a week ago. The problem is, I was busy, and then I ran out of shampoo for the carpet cleaning the downstairs carpets. This spot happened to be in the extra bedroom. So I vacuumed up the chunks and shut the door.
Finally today I mixed up a recipe for carpet cleaner. I figure week old vomit, what better to try it on and see if it really works. I did have to go and buy one ingredient but that was less than $2.00. A regular bottle of carpet shampoo is probably between $6 and $10 depending on the brand and type that you buy. It was worth a shot.
Here we go:
1 1/2 quarts of HOT not boiling water (If my math is correct that is 6 cups)
1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
1 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1 1/2 Tablespoons dish soap
Mix these up and pour it in.
This recipe was originally for a little green machine or something like that but I doubled the recipe and it all fit into my carpet cleaner.
The original recipe called for some essential oils for some scent but I did not use them. For one it costs money to buy that and second this smells fresh and that is all I care about.
