Store Bought Carpet Cleaners
There are several carpet cleaners out there that claim they can remove even the toughest stains. The important thing to remember before using them is that you need to do a spot test to make sure their harsh chemicals don’t damage your carpet. You also need to completely remove any solution left on the carpet fibers or they tend to attract dirt later.
Homemade Cleaning Solutions
When you find that your pet has had an accident in your home, it is vital that you work quickly to remove it. The longer the stain sits on your carpet, the more difficult it will be to remove it from the fibers of your carpet. Many homemade cleaning solutions can help with pet stains and odors. Some of the most effective ways to remove stains and odors can be done using some basic household items. Here are some of the most effective ways to remove pet stains with homemade solutions.
– Baking Soda & Vinegar: Once you have blotted up urine, sprinkle a good amount of baking soda on the spot. Mix a couple tablespoons of vinegar with 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. Completely saturate the baking soda with the vinegar and water mixture. Let it dry and vacuum up. Repeat if necessary.
– Ammonia: Mix two tablespoons of ammonia with one cup water and then spray it on the stain. Make sure you are blotting it up and not scrubbing to work the stain out of the carpet to avoid damage. Once the solution is removed from the carpet, towel the area dry.
– Hydrogen Peroxide: You can mix 4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide with 2 tablespoons of warm water and a drop or two of dish soap to remove pet stains and odors. Make sure you rinse the solution off well as the soap can leave a residue that attracts dirt later.
