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