I worked for a decorating studio and conferred with carpet companies for our customers. Their suggestions were:Blot up any "accidents" after removing solids, of course. Use cold water (don't soak carpet) to get the remaining stain out as much as possible, once again blotting rather than scrubbing.The carpet company recommended following this with a solution of mild detergent (not soap) and water beaten together, then scoop the foam off the top and spread on the spot, gently working in & blotting out. When the stain is gone (blot, blot, blot) rinse with clear water. When you're satisfied the stain & detergent are all out, follow with a fine spray of white vinegar. Blot dry first, then spray vinegar. Cover with a white paper or cotton towel until completely dry then vacuum.I've used this method & it works, however "Natures Miracle" works well also & helps to eliminate the odor (especially of cat urine). For the sake of your carpet the important points are not to rub, blot as much as possible out with cold water and papertowels before you apply anything & don't get the carpet too wet at any stage. I've gone through whole roles of papertowels.I've also had deep urine staining from a puppy that looked clean & came back again & again. Professional cleaning didn't help. Sometimes I've had to use the Natures Miracle or the detergent mixture over & over until the stain stops coming up from the bottom of the carpet & pad.Good luck!Lucy
