I have a brand new carpet that my dog has peed on. I tried treating the stain with white vinegar, but unusually used it neat. The stain is now bright orange. Any ideas?

Try mixing baking soda & water into a paste - spread on the stain - either rub it in & remove with a damp cloth a few minutes later or let it dry then vacumm. Try the wet idea first.

I have two puppies. Every now and then I catch them peeing on the carpet! I try to clean it up as soon as I see it, but there are times when I don't catch them. The bedroom is really bad because they go at night when I am sleeping and cannot let them out!

It's making my apartment smell really bad! I don't even like to have company over because of the smell! Its horrible. I've tried everything! It just won't come out. The last product I used just made my carpet all stiff and hard, so now I'm trying to figure out how to fix that! Can someone please help me?

We had old pet urine stains in one our guest bedroom. After trying everything under the sun, we found that using Tide HE with Fabrize got those pet stains out. I spot cleaned the areas first then with the carpet cleaner did the complete room with the Tide. It got the spots out and made the room smell good.

My friend's husband is a professional carpet cleaner and I actually just asked him about this last week. He strongly recommends a product by BioKleen called Bac Out for pet and kid stains. It's natural, safe around children and pets (even birds), and doesn't leave a residue behind. You can find it at most stores that have a health foods section or you can get it through Amazon. He also recommended Nature's Miracle specifically for pet stains.

Yes, mix equal parts clear or white dish washing liquid and hydrogen peroxide, take clean white old towel or wash cloth. Dip in the mixture and dribble over the stain. Let it soak in for a min , then rub it in. Let it set for a few min then soak up excess liquid. It make take a few times. Then leave for a few hours. You may have to repeat. If smell persist try the peroxide straight up. After you blot out excess pour baking soda on top and let dry. Vacuumed up next day. This may also take a few times.good luck!

Does anyone have proven suggestion for removing dog urine from carpets? The stuff from pet store doesn't work and neither does Oxiclean. My old female dog (16 yrs.), because I left her home alone too long, and she had an accident(s).

I have tried everything. Hopefully you have had success and will pass it on. Thanks.

Hatty is right-the lingering odor is likely coming from the soaked underlay of the carpet.

Since you posted your question a few days ago the padding has probably begun to dry but the smell isn't going away. MottmillerCremean is right about the vinegar, but because the accident is a few days old. You're going to have to do some remedial work. You're going to need:

*rubber or disposable gloves

*a big trash bin liner

*a big bottle of vinegar

*and a big stack of old newspaper-avoid using the glossy sections (won't soak up anything) and any colour pages (the ink will run and stain your carpet). Paper towels would be too expensive, you'd need several rolls to do this job properly.

Soak the accident area with full strength vinegar. Yes, it will smell strongly but it will dissipate and take the odor with it. Don't be afraid to use the whole bottle if the area is that big-make sure you soak the entire area including a few inches out beyond the accident in all directions.

Next lay several (at least ten, that's what seemed to be the magic number for me) layers of newspaper over the entire spot and go a few inches beyond the wet area, then step on the newspaper until it's saturated.

Pick those wet papers up and put them into the bin liner bag, then put another set of newspapers down, and repeat the stepping on process. Do this until the newspapers aren't absorbing anymore wet.

When the newspapers have absorbed as much wet as possible to get up, lay a new set over the area, but don't step on them; just leave them for a few days while the spot dries. Make sure no-one else steps on the newspaper, put a piece of furniture over it to create a barrier.

If you can open the windows in the room it may speed drying if your weather permits. If not, consider placing a fan aimed above the spot (not at it or you'll have newspaper all over) to help move the air and dry the spot faster.

I learned this while caring for a beloved elderly pet (neutered male Boxer) in his last years. I had to go to work, couldn't afford doggy day-care and had to come up with ways to cope. I finally started laying newspaper under and over disposable drop cloths and he would use that if I couldn't get home at lunch.

Bless you for caring for your elderly pet. I know from experience that's not an easy job, and a lot of people would not go that far.

I am curious to how to remove dog urine from carpets and hardwood floors. I have tried several things already like a steam cleaner, Lysol, dish soap, bleach, and even vinegar and none of that has worked. Can you please give me some kind of answer to what I can use?

I think I have something that will help. I have yet to find a stain it will not remove and it must also remove any odor because everyone tells me that they cannot tell I have four cats in my house. And it is very cheap to make. Buy a large bottle of peroxide. A quart is about a dollar. Also buy a quart of ammonia.........not sudsy, just plain. If you don't have a spray bottle, you will also need to get one of those. Then simply mix a cup of peroxide to two table spoons ammonia. Spray the area until it is fairly wet. Let it sit a few minutes. Some stains will simply disappear before your eyes. Have a roll of paper towels and blot, blot, blot. If you have a terrible stain, you can fold several paper towels together or use an old white towel and weight it down with something and leave it overnight. I have yet to find a stain it won't take out. I keep it mixed up all the time and love it. Also, it has never taken the color out of any carpet or upholestry that I have ever used it on.

I have a dog about 8 months old, he seems to have picked up a habit of peeing in the hallway. It doesn't matter what I do or use in there he always goes back to the same places. Arm and Hammer used to make a powder that you put on wet or dry places and it actually absorbed the liquid and when it dried you would vacuum and all was gone. Does anyone make a similar product?

I use SPOT-SHOT aerosol. I have totally white carpet throughout my home and have used this for several years. Follow simple directions on the can & it will remove it all !! No odor, no stain & no return to the same spot by your pet. You can get it at WalMart cheaper than anywhere else I have found. I have even used it to get spots off clothes when nothing else would work. Before I lost my dog, she was having bladder & kidney problems which had traces of blood in the urine..it even removed all of that!
