    Cat Spray stain removal suggestions

    Cat Spray stain removal suggestions 8th Aug 18 at 10:31 PM
    As the title says, one of my cats has sprayed 2 veins (of my relatively new) set of vertical blinds!

    As they are quite new I am reluctant to put them all into soak in warm water or into the washing machine.

    I have tried to lightly remove the stained area with a damp cloth, fairy liquid and today dilute vanish dabbed on.

    The dry cleaner says he can attempt to steam clean them, but isn't hopeful about removing the stain mark completely as they are a light cream.

    Any suggestions? (I know there are 1001 tips for cat spray/wee on carpet but not many for vertical blind fabric).
    TIA

    Look for a pet stain remover. Pet shops usually have them or you can buy online.

    Check they are suitable for the material of the blinds.

    Thank You for all the replies, I bought simple solution today and have tested it on a small area of the blind.
    The problem is the vein has become stained and its the stain thats harder to remove than the smell.
    The vein has become opaque where the stain is....
