It is good that you foster dogs in addition to cats and the very cute hamster that roams and hops around like a free bird. Yeah, that little guy is everyone’s favorite. But you must’ve noticed that despite your home is a happy place it has seized to be a clean place. Potty training each one of your pets is not an easy task. And while you reluctantly undertake it knowing that it might not get you anywhere, you might as well learn some natural pet stains and odor removal techniques at home. They will help you cope with accidental spills and “poopy” situations that threaten the beauty of your carpets.
Vinegar And Baking Soda
Always start by blotting up all the liquid very thoroughly from your carpet. Do not rub! When you’re performing any kind of pet stains and odor removal at home all by yourself you can’t emphasize enough on the importance of this step. You can also fold up a cotton towel or an old rag over it and place something heavy on it. You just have to squeeze it all out before you begin with the final cleaning process. Now that all the liquid is out you can mix 2 cups of white vinegar with equal parts of lukewarm water. Now add in 4 tablespoons of baking soda but make sure to add it gradually in smaller quantities so that it doesn’t fizz over. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and close is tight. Now spray generously on the affected area and let this sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Now grab a cotton cloth and gently rub and blot the area. Do it until the entire stain is removed from the carpet fibers.
Hydrogen-Peroxide And Baking Soda
Not many of us know that hydrogen peroxide is a great solution to pet stains and odor removal. It is a great substance and really comes in handy when you want to break down urine crystals formed inside the carpet fibers. It is very effective in pulling out stains and when you combine it with baking soda, it forms a naturally deodorizing agent that gets rid of the most stubborn of smells. Begin by covering the stain or the affected area with a clean white cotton cloth or paper towels or cotton rags. Then to apply some weight on them you can walk over them or place something heavy on top. This will help the clothes or towels soak up excess liquid. Now sprinkle ample baking soda over the stained area when you see that there is no more liquid anywhere. Now mix ½ cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide with 1 teaspoon dish liquid together. Then stir it well. Slowly pour it over the stained parts of the carpet where the baking soda is. Scrub it all gently into the carpet fibers. Let all of it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Vacuum the area afterward and repeat it to remove even tougher stains.
