Cat has diarrhea on the hardwood?

Well, someone locked my cat in my room, so he had a little accident. I do blame. He had a lot of bloody diarrhea lately (if we fed chicken and rice for a while, now it's just diarrhea). It went on my hardwood floor, and then buried him with a couple of towels. There is crap everywhere on the floor and towels. Disgusting. So, how clean it? My mother recommended the vinegar and water for the floor (she was not sure), and water the towels in court then wash. What do you think? Thank you!

Poor Kitty! I would hose out the towels in the backyard is a good idea at first. Perhaps you could just squirt a little dish soap on them, but not much, or it will foam too. Second, wash towels in hot water and much detergent will do. I run them through the washing machine 2 times though. Cat shit smells really strong. For soil, the vinegar may be the case but because it is hard, I'm not sure what you can put on him to not ruin the wood. The real wood, I will not be much help there.
