Cats and Dogs > Stains

Canada Dry Club Soda and Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. After blotting up as much of the pet stain as possible from the carpet, pour a small amount of Canada Dry Club Soda onto the stain, rub gently with a sponge, and then blot up with a paper towel. Let dry thoroughly, sprinkle on Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, let sit for fifteen minutes, and then vacuum up. The baking soda neutralizes the odor.

Heinz White Vinegar. If your pet stains your carpet, you don’t have to re-carpet or put the house up for sale. Mix one part Heinz White Vinegar to one part water in a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle. Or use the vinegar full strength. Just saturate the spot on the carpet. Your house is going to smell like urine and vinegar for about three days (so you may want to take a quick trip to Hawaii), but once the vinegar dries, it completely deodorizes the stain—effectively and inexpensively. The vine gar also discourages your pet from returning to that spot.

Huggies Baby Wipes. To clean pet urine from carpet, use a Huggies Baby Wipe to blot up the liquid.

Lysol All Purpose Cleaner and Parsons’ Ammonia.
Mix one- half cup Lysol All Purpose Cleaner, one teaspoon Parsons’ Ammonia, and one quart water. Use a sponge dipped in this solution to clean a pet accident from the carpet. This mixture also deodorizes the stain.

Pampers and Heinz White Vinegar. Open a Pampers disposable diaper, place it facedown over the stain, and put some heavy books on top of the diaper. Let it sit for one hour. After the super absorbent polymer flakes in the diaper soak up most of the urine, clean the remaining stain with Heinz White Vinegar. (See opposite page.)

Parsons’ Ammonia. After cleaning cat urine from carpet using Heinz White Vinegar (see opposite page), rub the spot with a cloth dampened in Parsons’ Ammonia, both deodorizing the spot and discouraging the cat from urinating in that spot again.

20 Mule Team Borax. Dampen the spot, rub in 20 Mule Team Borax, let dry, then vacuum or brush clean. Borax absorbs the nasty odors.
