You can clean pet stains and odors out of carpets with cleaning products that you currently have under the sink. The two best ingredients for removing stains and odors are baking soda and household hydrogen peroxide 3% solution.
Remove Pet Urine or Feces With a Paper Towel
Soak up as much urine with a paper towel or several and then throw them out. Removing as much as possible will help to keep the odor down. Be sure to clean your hands after to make sure that you do not spread dangerous germs around your home. It is difficult to get cat urine and dog urine out of carpets unless you remove most of it first by soaking it up.
Sprinkle Baking Soda On The Stain To Clean Pet Stains and Odors Out of Carpets
Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda onto the pet stain. Scrub it in with a scrub brush. Allow it to set for at least thirty minutes. You may want to allow it to set overnight if the smell is unusually bad. Baking soda will soak up the smell. It is not necessary for you to purchase a name brand baking soda. A generic brand of baking soda will be just as efficient. There are so many household uses for baking soda, you may want to buy a large box.
Pour Hydrogen Peroxide 3% Solution Onto The Stain To Clean Pet Stains and Odors Out of Carpets*
*Test your carpeting colorfastness by pouring a small amount of hydrogen peroxide 3% solution onto an area that cannot be seen such as inside a closet. Let it set for thirty minutes. If it did not change the color of your carpet, it is safe to use in visible areas.
Pour a generous amount of hydrogen peroxide 3% solution onto your pet stain (that is already covered with baking soda). This is an excellent combination that removes stains from many surfaces including your teeth. Scrub the solution in with your scrub brush. Let it set a least thirty minutes.
Soak Up the Solution With Paper Towels To Clean Pet Stains and Odors Out of Carpets
Soak up the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide solution with paper towels until all of the moisture is gone.
Vacuum Up After The Carpet Dries
After the carpeting dries, vacuum up any left over baking soda. Your carpet should be as good as new.
You can clean pet stains and odors out of your carpets and hide the fact that they ever had cat urine or dog urine on them.
