What a joy they are! Then what? It’s not uncommon for your Spotless Carpet pet to miss the litter box or pee on the floor while potty teaching. How to remove dog and cat urine smells naturally?
You may have “treated” the stain when it first happened, but pet odors will still persist even after a thorough cleaning. The spring season is an ideal time to take on these trouble spots.
Even if your urine stain is still wet on the carpet, you can neutralize it with eco-friendly vinegar. Because of its acidity, this works for even older stains. You should blot, not rub, the area. Rubbing will just push the stain into the carpeting. Add equal parts cold and white water to the vinegar mixture and generously pour over the affected area. Allow it to dry and then blot. You can accelerate the process by using a blower. When the paint is completely dry, use a vacuum to clean up any remaining residue.
If the urine has dried out, you can sprinkle baking soda generously over it. Then let it sit there for at least two hours.
As a pre-treatment, club soda can be used to remove almost all pet stains. Because the treatment only works while the soda is fizzing, it might be necessary to repeat the process several times. Before pouring on the club-soda, start by wiping off the affected area. When the club soda has stopped bubbling, blot again the stain, and then repeat as needed. It’s likely that you will need to use the same baking soda procedure if your stain was not freshly picked.
Bleach For caked on stains, and to get rid of odors, try using diluted bleach. Mix 10 parts water with 1 part bleach. Spray solution directly on stain. Allow it to sit for 15 second before thoroughly washing the area. If the stain is still visible, you will need to repeat the steps until it disappears.
You can test the bleach on a small area to see if it discolors your carpet. Allow the bleach to sit for 1 minute and then wash it off with water. You can use the bleach mixture on different areas of carpet as long as it doesn’t discolor.
While this carpet cleaner is natural, the ingredients you mix together could cause a reaction when they sit. You should always be safe when disposing of any remaining products. In case of need, consult professionals to ensure safety.
