Pet owners will experience the pains of pet stains and odors at some point in their lives.
Most of us will have to deal with cleaning up a stain every now and then. The goal is to effectively remove the stain from the floor, wall, or other product and then to also do enough of a cleaning up that you actually remove the odor that tends to linger as well.
Unfortunately, there is not an easy, one way works the best method out there. And, contrary to what you may think or hear, not all of the chemicals you can purchase to help you to remove pet stains will actually work. Therefore, it is essential for you to learn just how to get rid of the awful pet stains you find with these proven methods.
Time is essential. You need to get to the stain as quickly as you can. When you do this, you are able to get most of the liquid out of the carpet or off the flooring before it sets into it.
Get clean, white paper towels and absorb as much of the mess from the carpet as possible. Liquid should be blotted out of the carpet until you cannot get any more out. Do not scrub it!
Dilute vinegar in a bottle 50/50 with warm water. Spray this onto the stain and blot with a clean cloth to absorb as much liquid as possible and allow it to dry. This will neutralize odor.
Or, try a solution of vinegar, baking soda and water in a spray bottle. A few teaspoons of baking soda will cause a reaction with the chemical that will also help to remove that stain, even if it has been sitting there for a while.
To neutralize the smell of the urine, sprinkle baking soda dry onto the carpeting in the spot. Allow it to absorb the odors there and then vacuum it up.
In an emergency situation, you can treat the stain with club soda. Or, use seltzer water. Then, go back and treat it as you normally would.
