How to Remove Pet Urine Stains from Carpets (part 2 of 2)


Regardless if it’s your dog, cat or hamster that did the deed, pet urine is extremely unpleasant because it has a powerful odor and leaves a visible amber spot on the carpet. Removing the odor will be discussed below, so let’s see how you can remove pet urine stains from carpets using baking soda and white vinegar:

With baking soda, you need to make sure the stain is dried down first. So take a clean towel or some paper and press it down against the carpet, absorbing the liquid as thoroughly as possible. This will greatly reduce the damage the urine will have on the carpet, so the faster you’re able to dry it out, the better.

Now dampen the area with some clean water and sprinkle the baking soda over the area, letting it dry (sometimes several hours are needed, so you might want to leave it overnight). Lastly, vacuum to remove the debris created by the baking soda and your stain should be gone. 

If you want to use vinegar to clean out the stain, mix half a cup with ¼ cup of warm water and spill the mixture over the targeted area. (DO NOT MIX THE BAKING SODA WITH THE VINEGAR!) Use a dry towel on top of it and place a heavy object on top of it to apply pressure. You’ll need to keep it there for a couple of hours, so if you want to be on the safe side of things, you might want to leave it there overnight. In the morning, remove the towel and use a soft hairbrush to clean the carpet off, if needed.
