Removing Dog Urine Odors

As a dog owner, you have likely dealth with accidents in the house. Some of the most difficult to clean are those which result in dog urine in carpet. How do you get dog urine out of carpet?

There is a remedy for dog urine spots using common household products.

Dog Urine Eliminator

You can make dog urine cleaning products on your own using four simple ingredients:

  1. Baking Soda
  2. Hydrogen Peroxide (3%)
  3. Liquid Dishwashing Detergent
  4. White Vinegar

For carpets and rugs, the first step is to soak up as much of the dog urine as you can using several layers of paper towels. Mix together a solution of 50% white vinegar with 50% percent water. Use enough to reach down into the carpet fibers. The vinegar will neutralize the ammonia. Blot it once more with paper towels.

When it is dry or mostly dried, sprinkle some baking soda on any dog urine spots. Then, mix 1/2 cup of the 3% hydrogen peroxide with 1 teaspoon of detergent. Test your carpet first in an area that won't show for color fastness.

Once you are satisfied that the hydrogen peroxide mixture will not change the color of your carpet, pour the mixture onto the soiled spot. Wear rubber gloves and work the solution into the carpet using your fingers or a scrubbing brush.

Once the area is dry, vacuum the area thoroughly.

Never use products containing ammonia to clean up urine. Urine contains ammonia and may attract your dog or cat to re-mark the area. Read the label since many household cleaners contain ammonia.

If you don't want to make your own remedy for dog urine in carpet, you can also use a ready-to-made spray specifically designed for removing dog urine odors.
