For carpets, rugs, and upholstery, thoroughly blot the area with a towel or some rags. Test vinegar on an inconspicuous area. Then pour a bit of undiluted white vinegar over the spot. Blot it up with a towel, then reapply the vinegar-let it air-dry. Once the vinegar dries, the spot should be completely deodorized.
