Imagine yourself googling for that exact phrase. Because I just did.

Our big kitty, Buddy, decided to take a dump in the garage, step in it, and track it all over our carpets.

So I googled. I found a blog who suggested to use hydrogen peroxide on it. My carpets are fairly new, so I was not down with trying that. It may not have hurt the carpets, but still. If peroxide will bleach your hair, I don't want to find out empirically what it will do to my carpet.

I did, however, chance upon this stuff my dad told me to buy:

I should qualify the reason I chose to use Totally Awesome to clean feces out of my carpet. We don't have much cleaning stuff around the house. Aside from laundry essentials (detergent, borax, fabric softener, and bleach), I have infused vinegar that I use to clean the girls' dinner table. I have Meyer's Clean Day lavender all-purpose cleaner, which is not approved for carpets. I have Murphy's oil soap, Comet, and Goo Gone. I might have some toilet bowl cleaner stashed beneath the sink in the bathroom, along with some very old Scrubbing Bubbles. We outsourced housekeeping when the kids were born, realizing that 2 working parents plus 2 same-age kids plus 2 cats plus a house meant that deep cleaning wasn't on the short list of things to do.

So I mixed up 1/2 a cup of Totally Awesome in a gallon hot water, gave my husband a cleaning cloth, and went to work.

Five minutes later, poop is all gone and we're back to watching TV.
