|The next time your cat coughs up a hairball or vomits on the rug, apply a heavy coat of baking soda on the accident and walk away. That’s right, just walk away. The baking soda does all the hard work for you by absorbing moisture deposited in the carpet from regurgitated food and stomach acids.
After the baking soda dries, pick-up heavier pieces with a paper towel and dispose of them. Then use your vacuum’s attachment to suction away whatever is left.
Before trying this tip, test the mixture in an inconspicuous area to make sure it doesn’t discolor your rug.
