How to Remove Dog Feces Stains from a Comforter.

Cuddling up on the couch with your dog on a cool evening with a roaring fire gives one a good warm feeling.  But looking down and seeing a skid mark (feces stain) is not a pleasant sight. A dog feces stain is a water soluble stain thus a good laundry detergent will easily break it down and lift it out.

Vaska Laundry Detergent:

1.    Create a pre spotting solution with 1 part Vaska Laundry Detergent and 10 parts water.

2.    Apply a small amount of the solution directly onto the dog feces stain.

3.    Tamp with a brush to help the solution penetrate the stain.

4.    Let it penetrate for a few minutes.

5.    Blot with a wet towel followed by a dry towel.


Any residual smell can be removed using an enzyme stain remover. Enzyme stain removers can be found in the laundry department of Whole Foods grocery stores or in Petco stores.


BioKleen’s Bac-Out or Earth Friendly Product’s Every Day Stain & Odor Remover

1.    Apply a small amount of the enzyme stain remover onto the dog feces stained area.

2.    Let it penetrate for 1-2 hours, re-apply if it starts to dry out.

3.    Blot with a wet towel followed by a dry towel.


Done? I always suggest it is best to dry clean or launder garments when done with the spotting process. Leaving residual spotting solutions on the garment will oxidize over time and cause yellowing.
