For pet owners, pet urine is a common problem. Whether it’s dog pee or cat pee, getting urine in spaces where they shouldn’t be is inevitable, even if your pet is potty trained. There are times when cats choose to not pee on the litter and dogs just get too excited.
However, pet urine is not as grave a problem as you might think. Once you know these home remedies, getting rid of your pet’s pee-pee is as easy as 1-2-3.
As simple as white vinegar may seem, it can do wonders in getting rid of urine odor. White vinegar neutralizes odors and works well for wet stains as well, even those that have been there for a while. You can use this by pouring generously an equal mixture of white vinegar and cold water. Blot the area well and let it dry. Once it is dry, you can then vacuum over the area.
One of the greatest inventions of mankind is baking soda. Although it is named after its function for baking, it has been widely used and greatly helpful for cleaning, especially pet urine. Baking soda neutralizes the odor of the urine naturally. Sprinkle it liberally on the damp area and work the powder gently into the fibers of the fabric. Let it sit overnight to absorb as much odor as possible, then vacuum it up.
Bleach is a strong way to get rid of dog pee and cat pee stains. However, its smell is quite strong as well. This is especially effective for cleaning caked-in stains. Dilute the leach, using 10 parts water to one part bleach. Spray the solution on the stain and then let it sit for 15 seconds. After that, rinse the area with warm water. If the stain is still visible, repeat the process until the spot is gone.
