How do you get a runny poo stain out of a carpet?

It is DD2's not mine. I tried rubbing it with a cloth soaked in water and washing up liquid. Then I sprinkled bicarbonate of soda onto it, I'd read that that would stop the odour. However, there is still a bit stain. Any ideas? Amazingly I can't remember having this problem before, I think it is the runniness which has caused the problem. Nice.

Couldn't read the title and not come in to offer a sympathetic pat on the shoulder.


Ditto LoW re: carpet cleaner. e.g. 1001 spray

Agree with LoveMyGirls - Vanish spray or foam will get it out. Spray it - leave it, then scrub it in.

Ok,sounds crazy but shampoo and a scrub works, this is a regular accurence for me.

Thank you. Re carpet cleaner, what is is about my brain at the moment, I just didn't think of that obvious idea. I may try the shampoo one too as that is in the house. Thanks all.
