STAIN REMOVAL GUIDE: Vomit

Vomit

Let’s face it, accidents happen.  Whether a guest had too much to drink at your holiday party or your child got into the cookie jar and ate all of them.  Or maybe you are one of the lucky ones who haven’t had to deal with vomit on your wool rug. If that’s the case then consider yourself very fortunate.  We hope you never have to deal with it. Other than what the person previously ate or drank, there will be stomach acid mixed into the stain. Remember to stay calm and follow these instructions.
