Getting Rid of Hairball Stains from Carpet

Cat lovers all over the place sigh when they hear the horrible gagging then a pile of yuck on your carpet. Hairball stains not as much as cat vomit, but immediate removal is essential. Cleaning up hairball stains is the unfortunate, but all too common task that falls to cat-owners. Once a week or so, you’ll hear that sound, and your heart will fall. Time to dig out the paper towels, and go to work.

Abide by these measures to remove any possible marks out of your floor.

Things Needed:

  • Mild soap
  • Rubber or latex gloves
  • Paper towels or soft cloths
  • Spot cleaner such as Resolve
  • Spray bottle
  • Water


  1. Start off with picking up the hairball in a heap of paper towels. It’s best not to rub or push the hairball into the carpet while picking them up.
  2. Following that, blot the area using a wet cloth and then with a dry cloth.
  3. In case there is still a spot, apply a little bit of mild soap on the area and blot using a clean cloth.
  4. Rinse the area completely by blotting using a cloth moistened with clean water.
  5. Allow the area to dry to find out if any stain persists.
  6. In the event that a stain is still present, spray the area with a carpet spot remover just like Resolve and blot using a clean cloth.
  7. Wash out the area thoroughly with water and blot using a clean cloth.


  • Whereas the majority want to remove a hairball straight away, it may be necessary to allow it to sit for a minute and firm-up. It may can result in less difficult removal.
  • If there is substantial moisture with the hairball, take away the hairball and cover the wet spot with salt. Give it time to dry and vacuum it away.
