How to remove vomit from a silk carpet?
posted by TrixieRamble to Home & Garden (1 answer total)
My cat vomited right in the middle of our silk Persian rug. The vomit is made of Cat Chow and whatever else is in vomit. The rug is made primarily of silk, though I assume it is a silk/wool blend. It was purchased in Nepal (and please forgive and correct me if there's a more culturally respectful name for it than "Persian").
I removed most of the vomit by picking it up with a dishtowel, but there are still spots where the rug pile is matted down with vomit residue (some damp, some dry). Fortunately the color blends pretty well with the brown tones of the carpet. Is there a way to remove what's left of the vomit without damaging the rug? Most Google hits just said what NOT to do to silk.
