    Thanks for the removing polish problem idea. I sure will pass it on. She has tried some things that didn't work. Sure appreciate the help and I know she will also. You all are the best.

    @Elaine Simmons, I knew what she meant... I just got a laugh since she's a blogger and mistyped blot as blog.

    My cat just threw up on my rug. I mean like a toddler size throw-up. It is pretty bad. Poor kitty, I think she's better now, but I gack just looking at it. Its a rug, (8x11). and so far, I've been able to pick yp all the half digested cat food with toilet paper, and sprinkled it with salt to draw up the stain. I've brushed it witha dry vegetable brush and sprayed the back with an all-purpose cleaner mixed with white vinegar.....I don't really know what I'm doing, and now that it is hanging out side over the fence I don't know what to do next....ANY SUGGESTIONS OUT THERE?

    I would probably try saturating the stain area with vinegar (test for color fastness) again then cover it with baking soda. Let it dry then vacuum up the baking soda. That should get rid of any lingering smells. I would then take a cool damp cloth with a little bit of detergent, again check for color fastness, and blot up as much of the stain as you can. If all else fails, you can always have it professionally cleaned.
