How to remove urine stains from wool carpet that have dried.

The chemical composition of dry, old urine deposits is different than when it is fresh.  To treat dry urine deposits, make a solution of 2/3 cup of cool water and 1/3 cup of white vinegar (do not use wine or cider vinegar).

1. Apply vinegar solution to spot and BLOT (do not rub) the spot with an absorbent white cotton towel.  Repeat this procedure 3 or 4 times to flush as much urine from the carpet as possible.  Please be careful not to over wet the carpet.

2. Moisten an absorbent white cotton towel with a WoolSafe approved spot cleaner and gently BLOT (do not rub) the carpet surface where the accident occurred.

3. Perform a final blotting of the area by placing a clean absorbent white cotton towel over the affected area and standing on it.

4. Sprinkle absorb-it over the affected area.  Cover an additional 2 inches of area around the urine deposit with the absorb-it. Gently press the absorb-it into the affected area.

5. Allow the absorb-it to remain undisturbed overnight. 

6. When dry, thoroughly vacuum the area to remove all of the absorb-it. If any discoloration remains, consult with your Certified Wool Care Specialist.
