Remove Pet Stains Using Eco-Friendly & Natural Products
This simple 3-step method for cleaning carpet pet stains uses only natural, eco-friendly products without using a stain remover that uses chemicals to eliminate pet stains.
Why is all-natural important?
Because the less we use manufactured cleaners on our floors, the less we expose our beloved pets to any harmful chemicals. They’re much closer to the floor than we are and any harsh chemicals will affect them much more than us.
Materials You’ll Need
Paper Towels or Towels
Equal parts Vinegar & Water
1: Blot, Don’t Rub!
Use a paper towel to blot the stain dry.Rubbing the stain with a paper towel only serves to spread the stain more. Replace the paper towel if it’s no longer soaking up the urine. Keep patting the stain until the spot is fairly dry.
2: Apply Vinegar
In a bucket or water bottle, mix together a solution of 50% water and 50% vinegar. Soak the area with this solution.
This does two things: it helps to cut through the stain if it’s being especially stubborn and re-wets the stain so you can make sure that all the pet urine is lifted off the carpet.
Scrub hard to make sure you get deep into the fibers below the carpet’s surface to remove any lingering pet urine.
3: Pour Some Baking Soda Then Wait
While the spot is still wet, apply baking soda and little the mix of vinegar and baking soda. Right away you’ll see and hear it fizzing as it starts to work at lifting the stain and smell. It helps to rub in the baking soda with your hands or a brush to get it deep down into the carpet fibers.
Leave the baking soda on the carpet until it’s completely dry. This might take a day or two, or it could just be overnight, depending on the amount of solution used. Once it’s completely dry, vacuum the baking soda from the carpet and the stain should be lifted!
Not all pet stains and odors can be easily removed – this is where we come in and remove not only newly pet stains but stains that have been an issue for awhile. We’ll get the job done!
