First, use something (spoon, spatula, or pooper-scooper) to gently scoop up as much of the feces as possible.

The steps below explain how to clean pet waste from carpets and upholstery:
1. If the waste is solid, pick it up. 2. If the waste is wet, spray with a product which solidifies the waste, and then pick it up. 3. Apply an enzyme cleaner to the area to remove any remaining odors and stains.
How Pet Enzyme Cleaners Work
As mentioned above, to clean both urine and dog-waste stains, it is highly recommended using an enzyme deodorizer. Pet waste and urine contain tremendous amounts of protein. Certain types of bacteria are attracted to this protein and consume it as food. The bacteria produce strong odors during the digestion process. To eliminate the smell, you must eliminate the protein. Enzyme cleaners contain live micro-organisms that work to consume the proteins. Eliminating the protein means eliminating the bacteria and, therefore, eliminating the smell.
