We are a nation of cat lovers. The RSPCA estimates that there are eight million cats living in the UK with around one in four of us owning a feline friend.

While cats have a strong reputation for hygiene, even the best-behaved moggies can make a bit of a mess. Whether they have a tendency to be sick on your carpet, or your furry companion is prone to having the odd accident, you can often find yourself clearing up after them.

And, of course, kittens and cats can be playful. Frisky felines can often bump into tables and chase their tail around your floor, knocking over juice, cups of tea and wine in the process!

So, if you have a cat and you therefore need to know how to get your carpet really clean, our guide will help.

All 1001 products are easy to use. If you have a stain caused by your cat, just follow these simple steps:

  • Test a hidden area of your carpet for colour fastness
  • For pet stains, we recommend wearing rubber gloves
  • Blot the stain using kitchen roll to absorb any excess liquid
  • Spray 1001 Pet Stain Remover or 1001 Troubleshooter and wait for up to five minutes
  • Massage the product into the stained area
