How to Clean Baby Poop off Carpet?


No matter what you’ve done for a living, no matter how demanding the job or long the hours were, nothing, absolutely nothing will prepare you for taking care of a baby. If you had a very responsible, deadline-oriented job, had people working for you and took that job very seriously, you may have felt like you were responsible for running the world. But, you’ll find out that with a newborn, not only are you not the imperial ruler, but you are a tiny cog in the wheel with no power over your own sleep.

I apologize to all new parents who got scared but that little text pretty much described the reality of being a parent.

Taking care of a baby means you have to be responsible 24/7. Infants need a lot more attention and care than pre-schoolers or elementary school children and that job can be tough sometimes. Everything you’ll do, you’ll have to do it twice. From getting dressed to eating, whatever you do, you’ll be doing it for 2 people.

And, honestly, taking care of a baby sometimes feels like having a crazy boss giving you commands that you have to follow at any time of the day or night. For instance, at 2 a.m. when you are asleep, you hear: “Get up now, and wipe some poop while having a gentle reassuring baby-friendly smile on your face!”

Now, taking care of a baby is not really that hard once you get in the loop. But, sometimes, just when you think you are getting the hang of it, everything changes –like the timing of when they are hungry, wide-awake or sleepy, the sounds they make and the color of their poop. Speaking of poop, another challenge of being the parent of a newborn is that you may end up with cleaning gross poop stains out of bedsheets, clothing and carpet.

Every “newborn” parent needs some help and if you are stuck with poop stains in the house, here’s a guide to help you get rid of them quickly.

Getting Poop Out of Carpet

Getting Poop Out of CarpetCarpets are becoming the latest trend for decorating and beautifying homes. Apart from beautifying homes, however, they also serve various purposes. For example, in colder climates, carpets can provide some thermal resistance. It can retain the warmer air for a longer time and provide warmth. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.

For many parents, carpets are an ideal surface for their babies to crawl, walk on and play as they are very soft and cushiony. But, while they are playing or crawling on the carpet, the risk of a poop accident is very much real. Baby poop is usually goopy and runny and can thus easily leak onto your carpet. It is also important to remember that carpet, like any other textiles, is made up of fibers and these fibers can easily retain feces if they are not cleaned properly.

So, here are some tips to help you get poop off the carpet:

  • You start by using a paper towel to pick up the poop and throw it away.
  • Before using any commercial or homemade cleaner, read the instruction on the carpet first and test the cleaning solution on a small patch to see if there is any discoloration.
  • The best homemade cleaner consists of a mixture of cold water and laundry detergent. Another option includes the detergent-vinegar solution. For more information, click here.

According to Lily Cameron, a resident cleaning expert at London’s Fantastic Services, “Enzymatic cleaners such as those used for animal scents or stains are pretty effective at getting rid of poop stains on carpets.”
