How to Clean Dog Poop from Clothes and Carpet – Including Full Body Dog Raincoat

Dogs are a wonderful addition to any home, but they can bring a lot of mess into your life, from jumping on the bed to leaving unpleasant traces on clothes, floors and carpets. If your dog isn't properly potty-trained, it may poop inside your home. Even if your pup is well-trained, accidents can still happen. If your canine friend has had an 'accident' on any surface, including a full body dog raincoat, you must act fast to deal with the mess. Below, we have provided instructions on how to clean dog poop.

How to Clean Dog Poop out of Carpet

There are two different ways to clean dog poop out of the carpet, depending on whether the poop is diarrhea or solid.

How to Clean Dog Diarrhea from Carpet

  • Wear gloves
  • Cover the affected area with a small bowel so that the throw-up dries
  • If there are any solid bits, remove them with the help of a paper towel. Be careful when picking the solid pieces; otherwise, you could end up rubbing the poop further into the carpet
  • Scrape up all the dried up with the help of a fork
  • Vacuum the affected area
  • Make a solution of 1/3 cup of vinegar and 2/3 cup of distilled water in a spray bottle. Spray this solution onto the affected area and then blot with a cloth without rubbing the spot.
  • Sprinkle some baking soda onto the stained area and let it sit overnight to remove unpleasant odors.
  • Vacuum the area to remove all traces of baking soda.

How To Clean Dog Feces From Carpet

  • Wear protective gloves
  • Pick up the solid dog feces from the carpet and put them in the trash can outside your home.
  • Vacuum the area to remove all tiny particles.
  • If the stain is there, create a solution of water and white vinegar and use it to clean the area.
  • You can also use a commercial cleaner – like Woolite INSTAclean Permanent Pet Stain Remover – to remove poop stains from your carpet.

How to Clean Dog Poop out of Full Body Dog Raincoat

Okay, so you have got the best dog raincoat, and now it's all dirty. What should you do?

Before you begin:

  • Gather your supplies: Rubber gloves, disposable bags, enzymatic cleaner, mild detergent, soft brush, clean towels, sink or bathtub with lukewarm water.
  • Identify the affected area(s): Is it just on the exterior, or has it seeped through to the lining?

Removing solid waste:

  • Put on gloves: This helps protect your hands from bacteria and mess.
  • Pick up any solid waste carefully: Use a disposable bag to avoid direct contact. Dispose of the bag securely.
  • Scrape off any remaining residue: Use a blunt tool like a butter knife or spoon (not sharp enough to damage the fabric) to gently remove any remaining solid matter.

Cleaning the exterior:

  • Spot clean with enzymatic cleaner: This type of cleaner is specially formulated to break down organic matter like poop and eliminate odors. Follow the instructions on the product label.
  • Rinse the treated area thoroughly: Use lukewarm water to remove the cleaner and any loosened debris.
  • Gently scrub with a soft brush: This helps remove any remaining traces of poop or cleaner residue. Be careful not to scrub too hard, especially on delicate fabrics.
  • Air dry the raincoat: Hang it outdoors in a shaded area or lay it flat on a clean towel indoors. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources, which can damage the material.

If you want to escape the mess, you can always get a new full body dog raincoat.
