Pet Stain Removal Tips

The furry members of our family are the best – until the messes that they leave behind start to stack up! Pet stains can be a pain when they settle into upholstery and carpeted areas of your home. We have gathered tips to take care of the top pet stains.

Fight Those Pee Stains Quickly

First and foremost, if your pet has a urine accident, attempt to clean it up as soon as possible before the puddle has time to be absorbed too much by your carpeting. You are trying to stop it from drying and leaving odors behind. Use layers of paper towels to remove as much liquid as possible and push down to pick up as much as you can. Next, combine a solution of vinegar, warm water and baking soda in the ratio of 2 cups to 2 cups to 4 tablespoons. Use a spray bottle and let it soak into the soiled area for 5 to 10 minutes. Finish by blotting the area with a cloth. If the urine stain is heavy, sprinkle baking soda right on it and pour a mixture of 50/50 water and vinegar directly on it. Let it soak for 5 minutes and absorb with a cloth.

Tackle Vomit Stains From Your Pets

Acid that is in vomit can create stains fast, so get on the cleanup as soon as you can. Remove the debris first before bloating with a towel to absorb the liquid areas. Use a solution of 2 cups of warm water, a tablespoon of salt, a tablespoon of liquid dish soap and a half cup of vinegar. Use a soft cloth dipped in this solution to blot the stain as much as needed. Use a clean cloth in just water to blot at the end of the process and let dry.
