Removing Vomit Stains:

Not to worry – the Vanish formula can make it easy to get sick out of carpets, as the powerful formula tackles stains fast.

For maximum results on your carpets and cotton upholstery, we recommend using Vanish Gold Carpet Care Oxi Action Spray which offers 30 second amazing stain removal!

Clean up ASAP – Vomit contains gastric acid, which means if you don’t get to it fast, it runs the risk of permanently staining your carpets. Try and clean it up as soon as possible to minimise damage.

Don’t use bleach – Vomit can leave a nasty mark and your first thought may go to use bleach, but don’t be tempted. As vomit is a protein stain, trying to remove it with bleach can cause it to worsen. The Vanish Oxi Action formula can effectively tackle these difficult stains, whilst still being safe to use on different carpet colours and fabrics.

Pick it up – Pick up what you can with a piece of paper towel so you can dispose of it easily.
