When a cat throws up a hairball, they not only leave a disgusting solid mass for their owner to clean up, but also a gross little puddle of liquid. The solid can just be removed, but the liquid leaves behind a discolored stain on whatever fabric happened to be graced by the retching feline. If you find a hairball stain on the carpet, here are some steps you can take to restore the fabric to its proper cover;


Remove the solid hairball first. Use paper towels when handling the hairball to absorb some of the liquid residue.


Blot the rest of the area with a wet cloth, followed by a dry cloth. If there’s any stain left behind, use mild soap on the remaining mark, followed again by a wet cloth, then a dry cloth.


If mild soap isn’t enough, use a stronger carpet spot remover. After using the spot remove, thoroughly rinse the affected area with water.


Consider waiting a minute to allow the hairball to solidify. While disgusting, it’ll be easier to manage especially soggy hairballs if they’re a bit dryer.
