How To Clean Pet Vomit Stains

How To Clean Pet Vomit Stains

On occasion a pet owner may run into an instance where their food doesn't agree with them or an upset stomach might be bothersome. When this happens, generally the carpet or a rug becomes the target. These stains can be easily cleaned using Genesis 950. 

Genesis 950 is a green, surfactant based cleaner that works like no other stain remover. As a surfactant based cleaner, it works with water to break the bonds of stains. When a stain's bond is broken, it can then be lifted from a surface and the area can then be flushed clean. Genesis 950 is a green cleaner. It has no harsh chemicals and is safe to use in your home. In addition to being safe to you, your family and your pets, it also is safe for your carpet and upholstery. Genesis 950 will not damage fabrics, or discolor fibers. 

As a concentrate, water must be added to Genesis 950 for it to be active. The mixing ratio for general cleaning is 1 part 950 to 7 parts water. However pet stains can be more troublesome and in some cases require a higher mixing ratio. Genesis 950 and water can be mixed as high as a 50/50 ratio. Typically though, pet stains need no more than 1/3 950 and the remaining 2/3 water. 

To clean pet stains, spray the stained area with a mixture of Genesis 950 and water. In this example, a mixture of 1/3 950 and 2/3 water was used.

Genesis 950 is a cleaner unlike any other. It is a green, surfactant based cleaner. This type of cleaner works without harsh chemicals and uses water as an activator. When this mixture is applied to a stain, the water makes the stain water soluble. When this process occurs, the Genesis 950 can then break the structural bonds of the stains to lift it from the surface. Once this happens, the stain can then be rinsed from the surface.

Being sold in concentrate form, Genesis 950 is the perfect cleaner for that frugal, dollar crunching shopper. With Genesis 950, you are paying for and getting product. Many cleaners on the market can contain up to 90% water. As a consumer, when you buy these products, you are paying more for a Brand name, colorful packaging and water. With Genesis 950 being concentrated, you are buying straight cleaning solution and then add the water as needed. The free spray bottle is the perfect tool for mixing your solution with water. 

For General cleaning it is recommended that Genesis 950 be mixed at a ratio of 1 part 950 to 7 parts water. General cleaning can include cleaning kitchens, bathrooms, appliances, doors, walls, spot cleaning and more. When broken down in this manner, 1 quart of Genesis 950 actually gives you 7 quarts of cleaning solution. With a quart of 950 priced at $21.75 when purchased directly from Amerikal, the breakdown of the concentrate mixed for general cleaning actuals gives you 7 bottles of cleaning solution at $3.10 per bottle.

When cleaning requires a little bit more power, Genesis 950 can be mixed as high as a 50/50 mix. This is idea for pet stains, clothing stains, upholstery and carpet stains, and in auto detailing. A higher mixture will allow the 950 to really get into a stain and work hard to break it down. When mixing, you never want to go higher than a 50/50 mix. Water is the activating agent, so if you have more 950 than water in the mixture, your results will not be as satisfying. Typically, a mixture of 1/3 950 to 2/3 water will take care of tough stains.

While Genesis 950 can clean nearly all surfaces and all types of stains, one of the most popular uses of Genesis 950 is for removing pet stains and odors. Pet stains can be tricky and there are so many remedies and cleaners targeted for those types of stains. None of them work as well as Genesis 950 though. Unfortunately in this age of bloggers and DIYers, home remedies are made everywhere. This is unfortunate because they often give incorrect advice. Vinegar is plastered all over the internet as a means to remove pet stains. This is actually the worst thing a pet owner could ever use to remove pet stains. Vinegar is an acid based agent. It contains a pH level similar to the acid pH base found in urine. Animals, both cats and dogs, urinate in spots based on smell. If a cat or dog goes to the bathroom somewhere in the house, they will keep going in that spot until the odor is removed. If you clean with vinegar, you are only enhancing that odor due to the similar pH level and your pet will continue to go in that spot. Other cleaners recommended including household cleaners and enzymes also can not remove stains and odors like Genesis 950.

Carpet cleaning is another great use for Genesis 950. Genesis 950 works in a carpet cleaning machine better than any other carpet shampoo. Carpets gather dust, bacteria, dirt and so much more. When used in a carpet cleaning machine, Genesis 950 can remove all of this, making your carpets look and smell professionally cleaned. In doing so, Genesis 950 does this safely. There are no harsh chemicals left behind to cause illness or harm to you, your family or your pets. It is a safe, green cleaner. With machine type cleaning, it also does more than clean the carpet. It cleans the padding. Genesis 950 contains anti-bacterial cleaners which will kill mold and bacteria that might be present in the padding. 

If using Genesis 950 as a carpet cleaner, the savings are again incredible. Hiring a professional to clean your carpet can be costly. It can run up to $100 per room. On top of that, there are charges for different cleaners used. Whether is be a stain guard or an odor remover. Genesis 950 removes odor and kills bacteria without any extra add-ons. Even if your home is larger, you still save money using Genesis 950 as a 2.5 gallon cube is $60 when purchased directly. Cleaning your own carpet also lets you schedule your cleaning at your convenience. There's no need to work your schedule around waiting for a crew to come to your home. You can clean when you want based on your schedule. You can also ensure that tough areas are given extra attention, you have solution on hand to clean in the event of the always expected spill on the carpet after it has been cleaned. You also know your carpet is being cleaning with a safe solution. 

Genesis 950 is a versatile cleaner that anyone can use. Replace all the different cleaners in your pantry with one cleaner that does it all. Remove pet stains and odors. Make your carpets look and smell professionally cleaned. Use it in the garage to clean & degrease. The uses are endless! 

Genesis 950 Before & After Photos


DIY Carpet Cleaning

Genesis 950 is a cleaner like no other. It is a surfactant based cleaner that works with water to break apart stains and lift them from the surface. It is a green cleaner, and in turn is safe for you, your family and your pets. There are no harsh chemicals, there is no bleach, and no ammonia. In addition to safely cleaning, it also deodorizes and removes odors. On top of that, it will also kill bacteria and deter mold growth.

Genesis 950 can be used as a spot cleaner or as a full out carpet cleaner compatible with steam cleaning machines and other carpet cleaners. As a spot cleaner, Genesis 950 should be mixed at a ratio of 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. Using a spray bottle, or a bucket with the mixture and a sponge or cloth, clean the stained area. Allow it to sit for a few moments, then rinse with water. In the example to the right, a very heavily stained outdoor carpet is being cleaned using Genesis 950 and water in the described 1:7 ratio. The carpet was covered in some of the toughest stains to remove. Grass stains, grease stains and oil stains were found throughout the carpet. It also had some mold growth on it as well as everyday dirt from traffic. After being sprayed with the mixture, the carpet was gently scrubbed with a simple sponge. You can see the dramatic difference in the photo with the sponge. After using the sponge, the carpet was rinsed with a separate clean sponge. The real dramatic change can be seen in the photo below which shows the full carpet in a before and after shot. This carpet went from being ready to go on the curb to looking like a brand new carpet.


As solution in a carpet cleaning machine, Genesis 950 works like nothing you have ever used before. Unlike other cleaners, there is no soap in Genesis 950. Rather then clog your carpet up with suds and chemicals, it breaks down whatever is in the carpet. This particular carpet was plagued with stains. The area was in a basement where cats were kept when they were home alone. There were several accidents. From urine stains to vomit, these cats did everything you don't want a cat to do on the carpet. The stains accumulated over time. Some were yellowish from the urine. Some were tinted with dye from the food that didn't go down right. On top of pet stains there were traffic stains as this also served as the area where winter boots and wet shoes would go. Over time the stains got worse. Attempts were made regularly to clean the stains with typical cleaners found in every grocery store and box outlet. Some of the most popular and most trusted cleaners were used. They however did not remove the stain. In fact, much of the gray seen in the photo is not from pet stains or from traffic stains, it is what was left behind when other cleaners were tried. Eventually, Genesis 950 was used in a Bissel Pro Heat. As you can see, the results are night and day. Not only did Genesis 950 remove months of stains, it also removed the stains left behind by other cleaners. 

Genesis 950 is perfect for pet stains. The reason for that is because of how it breaks down the stains. Because there are no harsh chemicals, the carpet is not affected in any way. Some cleaners will actually oxidize the carpet, causing it to change colors. Genesis 950 also has no enzymes in it which is very important. Enzymes are not very effective for removing pet stains. Enzymes operate on the concept that one structure will alter or affect another. This theory implies that the enzymes will break down the stains from a pet. What makes enzymes problematic is that they are very sensitive as to what they affect. For example, a pet's diet or health may alter variations in the urine. Such variations prevent the enzyme from altering the stain. Likewise, temperature is another factor. If the temperature is off, the stain can not be broken down. There are other factors too. How old is the enzyme? Has anything else been used on the area that will alter the enzyme? Genesis 950 is also ideal for pet stains because it doesn't contain ammonia or vinegar. Far too often pet owners are given the misdirection to clean pet stains with either vinegar or ammonia. This is the worst advice that could possibly be given. Both vinegar and ammonia contain some of the same chemical compounds found in urine. Cats and dogs alike urinate in an area based on scent. They prefer to go in generally the same spot. Because vinegar & ammonia contain some of the same compounds found in urine, that smell can mislead them and cause them to go in any area you clean with it. Because Genesis 950 deodorizes, it will actually kill the germs and bacteria that are released from pet stains and prevent your animal from going in that spot again. 

But Genesis 950 isn't just for pet owners. It will clean some of the worst stains you can imagine. To the left is one of the worst stains imaginable. Pasta! Pasta stains are never a pretty site. This particular stain came from an entire bowl of ravioli spilled on the floor. This was brand new carpet in the room where food should not have even been! Naturally, that is where the stain ended up. In this example, the stain was first treated by hand using the 1:7 ratio of Genesis 950 and water. However because the pasta was so thick, it seeped down into the fibers and needed to be cleaned with a machine. A Spotbot was used to clean this area. With the spot bot, the portable machine was placed on top of the stain where it's brushes were allowed to gently rotate into the carpet while the machine extracted the stain. To speed the process up, and directly attend to the stain, the attachment hose was used to clean the area. As seen in the bottom photo, the Genesis 950 was able to completely remove the stain and restore the carpet to it's original new state, leaving no indication there was ever a stain.

Genesis 950 is sold in concentrate form. Unlike other cleaners, it is not watered down. When you purchase Genesis 950, you are buying a concentrated cleaner. This also makes Genesis 950 easy to use in a machine. There are two types of carpet cleaning machines.

There are machines that have 2 compartments. One for water, and one for solution. In these machines, simply fill the reservoir that holds water with straight water, and the reservoir that holds solution with straight Genesis 950. These types of machines then have settings which determine how much solution is mixed with the water. Generally these settings are low, medium heavy and rinse. For most stains, we would recommend the heavy setting. Once you have selected your level, simply go over the carpet. Once you have cleaned the entire carpet, go over it a second time using only water in the machine, or using the rinse cycle. This will flush out and pick up everything the Genesis 950 has broken apart in the carpet. In some cases, you may want to rinse more then once depending on how dirty the return water is.

Other types of machines have 1 tank where the water and cleaning solution are mixed. In these machines, we again recommend a 1:7 ratio of Genesis 950 to water. This can however be bumped up to a 50/50 mix if needed. As with the other machine types, once you have cleaned the carpet, go over it a second time. This time with only water in the tank. This will allow the carpet to be rinsed of everything the Genesis 950 has broken up and lifted.

Genesis 950 will clean more then stains and carpet though. It will degrease engines, make grills look new, give your car a detailing like nothing else and can be used in kitchens and bathrooms. You will never find a cleaner so diverse. On top of it, it's green!!!

It is also available on Amazon.


Genesis 950 Jenn's Blah Blah Blog Review & Giveaway

Genesis 950 Jenn's Blah Blah Blog Review

Our most recent review of Genesis 950 comes from Jenn in New Mexico. Jenn is a married Mother of of 4 and always on the go. Her blog, Jenn's Blah Blah Blog, is a wealth of information. She covers everything from parenting and relationship advice to crafts, projects, DIY, recipes and more. She also hosts giveaways and product reviews. We were lucky enough to have Jenn try Genesis 950 and share her thoughts. 

As an all purpose cleaner, Genesis 950 can clean everything from tile to carpet, woodwork to ceramic. Jenn liked this because as most people know, cleaning products can not only be expensive because so many are only designed for one thing, but they can take up so much room. With Genesis 950, 1 bottle is all you need to clean pretty much everything in your home. On top of that Genesis 950 is green and free of the harsh chemicals that most cleaners use.

Jenn used the 950 in a variety of ways. One way Genesis 950 was used by Jenn was as a cleaner for her stainless steel refrigerator. Anyone who has stainless appliances knows how hard they can be to keep clean. Jenn had mentioned that she had tried several other cleaners that were even designed for stainless, but none of those left the refrigerator free of streaks, water spots and fingerprints like the Genesis 950. 

Genesis 950 is perfect for removing pet stains. However this does not just mean pet stains in carpet! Pets can leave behind dirt and dander in areas. Jenn had one windowsill in particular that was favored by her cat. Overtime, from sitting in the windowsill, it became visible where the cat's spot was. Jenn used the Genesis 950 to clean the ledge and remove the stains.  Here are the before and after photos she took of the windowsill.

Remove Carpet Stains & Clean Carpet SAFELY

Remove Carpet Stains & Clean Carpet

Throughout the year, carpets can take a toll. Everyday life can leave a mark on your carpets. Spilled food and drinks, art and craft projects, smudged makeup, spilled paint, muddy boots and pets can leave your carpet unsightly and embarrassing. In addition to the visible stains, there is also buildup in carpet. From dander to pollen, unseen particles can cause health related issues which aggravate allergies and skin conditions. Even further below the carpet, bacteria can promote mold growth which can cause respiratory issues and destroy your carpet. 

Keeping carpet clean is an important task and should be done not just to keep your house looking presentable, but also to reduce factors that can contribute to poor health. Spring and Fall are the best times to give your carpet a thorough cleaning to remove any buildup which has settled into the carpet over the seasons. However it always seems the carpet needs to be cleaned when it is most inconvenient. An unexpected spill often triggers the urge to clean before the stain sets in. Because of this, people typically grab the most convenient cleaner and start scrubbing away.

Unfortunately, many of these cleaners are unsafe. Many contain harsh chemicals that can impose health risks. Simple Green contains 2-buthoxyethanol, which can damage red blood cells and irritate the eyes. Spot Shot may be fatal if inhaled. Febreeze, 409 and other ammonium or ethonalamine based can cause and trigger asthma. Some of these cleaners have been cited as releasing up to 89 air contaminants. The Environmental Working Group has composed a list of products on their Hall Of Shame. This list outlines the dangers in a number cleaning products. 

In addition to being unsafe, many household cleaners do not properly remove stains. Many of these cleaners contain toxins which will alter the carpet. A proper cleaner can safely break down the stain. Genesis 950 is a safe, green cleaner which uses water as it's primary mode to remove stains. Genesis 950 is a surfactant based cleaner. A surfactant based cleaner uses water to make a stained area water soluble. When a stain becomes water soluble, it's bonds are broken. Once the bonds of a stain are broken, it loses it's adherence to the surface it has been attached to. It can then be rinsed from the surface. 

Genesis 950 can be used as a spot cleaner to target specific stains, or it can be used in a machine to clean entire carpets. Either way, it is the best cleaner for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it is safe. It does not contain any regulated chemicals like other cleaners. There is no 2-buthoxyethanol, ammonium or ethonalamine. Genesis 950 will not provoke asthma, respiratory issues, or fatal reactions. It is a green product, designed with the safety of the environment, pets, children and families in mind. 

Genesis 950 can handle all types of stains. Initially designed in the early 80's, it has been used for decades to remove industrial ink from printing presses. In 2011 it was made available to the public as a general all purpose cleaner. Because of it's ability to break down food stains, makeup stains, paint stains, and even pet stains, it has become one of the most popular carpet cleaners on the market. 

Pet owners love Genesis 950 because it can remove vomit and urine stains as well as odors. It does so without harming the surface being cleaned, or the pet. In addition to removing stains, it also removes odors. 

Remove Pet Stains & Odors From Carpet

Pet urine and vomit can make carpet unsightly. It can also cause a great deal of frustration when it comes to cleaning them. If not properly cleaned, it can also cause a shift in the bathroom patterns of pets. Animals, both cats and dogs, urinate where they smell they have gone before. If an area is not properly cleaned, they will be drawn to that spot repeatedly. Unfortunately, some people follow some terrible advice in regards to cleaning pet stains and find themselves with an animal that keeps going in that spot. 

The worst advice by far is the recommendation of vinegar as a solution to clean pet stains. Vinegar, as well as ammonia, has a pH level with an acidic base. This pH level is comparable of that found in urine. As a result, the acidic odor confuses your pet into thinking that is the spot to go to the bathroom. Even the Humane Society advises to stay away from vinegar and ammonia. Likewise, cleaning products containing ammonium compounds have the same effect. It is for this reason you see so many people baffled that their pets won't stop going in the house. More often than not, it is not a housebreaking issue, but an issue revolving around cleaners used that draw animals to urinate in the spot they were used. 

Another issue in dealing with pets is the odor below the carpet surface. When an animal urinates on carpet, the urine travels downward. It becomes infused in the padding and the fibers of the carpet. Surface cleaning a spot will not remove the odor underlying the carpet. While you might not be able to smell it, you pet can. As they sniff about the carpet, when they come across the section with an old stain in the padding, they are likely to go to the bathroom there again. 

Another huge misconception is that baking soda or air fresheners will remove the odor. This is false. Baking soda is a neutralizer when introduced to an acidic component. Neutralizing and odor is not the same as deodorizing. To remove pet odors, the bacteria causing them needs to be destroyed. Air fresheners, in addition to releasing contaminants and asthma inducing chemicals, only mask odors. They do not neutralize or deodorize them. Genesis 950 kills the bacteria in the carpet and completely removes the odor . . . safely!

Remove pet odor from carpet
This carpet was full of pet stains. It was cleaned with traditional cleaners over the course of several years. The cleaners themselves created more staining and left discolored blotches throughout the carpet. Typically, these cleaners are soap based. As soap attracts dirt, the marks left behind by those cleaners only became more prominent as time went on. 

Remove pet odor from carpet
Because the cleaners used did not deodorize the area, the pets repeatedly went to the bathroom throughout the carpet. This was not a housebreaking issue. It was an issue caused by the odor not being properly removed and the animals being drawn back to that spot as their bathroom. 
Pet stains, as well as other stains, should be cleaned using a steam cleaning or carpet cleaning machine. There are a number of machines available for retail consumers. They are great investments, as they can restore carpet and keep your home clean. For those who prefer, these machines can be rented from local grocery and hardware stores. Genesis 950 is compatible with all types of cleaning machines. 

To remove pet stains, and the associated odors, Genesis 950 should be used at a mixing ratio of 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water. Typical cleaning recommendations for general cleaning are 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water, however pet stains can be more persistent and for this reason, the ration can be increased. In extreme cases, Genesis 950 can be mixed with water at a 50/50 ratio. There should not be more water than Genesis 950 though as it is the water which activates it and enables the stain to be broken down. 

Clean Old Pet Stains
After being cleaned in a machine at a ratio of 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water, the pet stains and odor were completely removed, as were the marks left behind from other cleaners. 

Genesis 950 can also tackle surface stains. Whether it's food, make up or unknown stains, use Genesis 950 in a spray bottle with water at the general cleaning ratio of 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. Spray the area, then rinse clean with water and allow to dry.

About Me

Genesis 950 is an all purpose cleaner that cleans like nothing else. It is a green, surfactant based cleaner. This means instead of attacking surfaces with harsh chemicals like bleach, vinegar, ammonia or soaps, it works with water to be absorbed into the stain and then alter the stains composition to break down the bonds of the stain. Not only does it remove the stain, but in the process it kills germs and bacteria associated with the stain. In turn, this also deodorizes the area. Genesis 950 is an all purpose cleaner with multiple uses. Among the most popular are carpet cleaning, pet stain and odor removal, and car detailing. However the uses are limitless when it comes to what you can clean with Genesis 950.
