Homemade Stain remover
If you want to prepare homemade urine remedy, all you need is white vinegar, and a pistol grip spray bottle. Mix vinegar and water, 50/50 and mist on the area in question…..BLOT and repeat as necessary. Be sure not to rub vigorously as this may distort carpet fibers and while the odor may be gone, an unsightly area will remain. A larger accident (we have big dogs ourselves, so we know these kinds of accidents are rarely “small”)…..may require more vinegar solution as the urine has usually also soaked into the padding underneath. In this case, it is essential that you remove all the solution by blotting with white towels and then laying a towel down and weighting it with something heavy to help soak up the solution as it wicks to the surface. Of course you and I know that prevention is the best cure, but sometimes accidents happen. Prevention is the same case when it comes to the cleaning of carpets. If you vacuum your carpet daily, especially with pets in the home, you will find the indoor air quality is much more healthier and carpets will look and be cleaner longer. Check your vacuum cleaner belt often to insure peak performance.
