Using stuff you may already have in your kitchen cabinets
So you were out for dinner at your favorite Hamilton restaurant and went to the movies in Stoney Creek or Ancaster. When you got home from a fun evening out you stepped in a wet spot left behind by your cute little mutt. The following may help you avoid a small disaster.
Here is a step-by-step guide to remove dog urine from your carpet using products you likely have in your kitchen cabinets:
Blot the urine: If the urine is still wet, use a thick layer of paper towels (or white cotton towels) to blot up as much of the urine as possible. If the urine has already dried, skip to step 2.
Rinse the area: Rinse the affected area with cool water to remove any remaining urine.
Apply baking soda: Spread baking soda thinly and evenly across the damp spot, being careful not to overdo it; about 1/4 cup or less is enough for most stains. Let the baking soda sit overnight.
Vacuum: Vacuum thoroughly to remove the baking soda.
Apply vinegar solution: In a clean spray bottle, mix one cup of distilled white vinegar with one cup of water and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Shake it up to mix the ingredients, and then spray on the stain. Let it sit for a few minutes.
Blot: Blot with towels until clean.
Repeat if necessary: If the stain is still visible or there is still an odor, repeat steps 3-6 until the stain and odor are gone.
It’s important to note that you should never use ammonia-based cleaners on pet stains, as they can actually make the odor worse and encourage your pet to urinate in that spot again1. Also, avoid using steam cleaners on pet stains, as the heat can set the odor and stain permanently2.
