Accidents resulting in dog pee stains can happen whether you have a new puppy, a senior dog or anywhere in between. This is a guide about cleaning dog urine stains from carpet.
Here is a recipe to use on dog urine stains on carpet or upholstery.

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?
I would like to inform people who need their pet stains out of carpets the way I did mine:
My sons room was so horrible from his puppy we got him, the puppy urinated all over his room, in every corner and all over under his bed, I tried all the pet odor carpet shampoo and nothing worked, I read up on the vinegar and water trick, tried it all and still didnt work so I made my own home remedy by mixing up other people remedies so here it is...
I put 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1/4 of pet odor shampoo of any kind (but with a great scent), and the I added in 1/3 cup simple green (yes the stuff you clean counter tops with, if you read the back it says it works on pet stains) and I added a few squirts of dish soap (any kind really), I used sun sations apple scent with the oxy cleaning power. Then add it all into a gallon of water, spread it over the area in which is covered in pet urine, scrub it with a scrub brush, let it soak for about 20 minutes so it can work its way down in the fibres and pad, and then use your shampooer to get all the water and cleaners out! This really works! I am so relieved that my son can sleep in his own room again!
My little dog decided to pee in a corner of the room on my beige rug that I didn't catch so the stain set. It's yellow and its smells. I tried store bought cleaners like resolve and others but the stain is still there and it still smells. Can anyone out there suggest anything to get this stain out and help the smell in the rug? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Try Fresh & Clean. They sell it at a pet store. It is amazing. It has peroxide in it. I use it when I volunteer at an animal shelter. Natures Miracle requires to much and very expensive.
The stain is set in. I have tried vinegar and water.
The best product I have found is "Out" - you blot up excess urine (or vomit or?) if it is still wet; pour on the Out. Do not use sparingly - pour on enough to saturate & go all around the spot. Leave it. This may have to be repeated if the stain is old & set, maybe repeated several times. But is has always worked for me. It is made in formulas for hard surfaces & carpet/cloth.
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.

Have you tried vinegar or apple cider vinegar? Should help.
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?

For new accidents use cornstarch. Leave it on for a few minutes and it will soak up the moisture. Then scrub with club soda and vinegar. The best way us to treat it right after it happens. The longer it sits the harder it is to get rid of. As for heavily soiled carpet , you may have to bite the bullet and get a professional out there to clean your carpets. For wood, use an orange oil or lemon oil based cleaner. Elbow grease, scrub the floors by hand, then rinse with vinegar and tea tree oil (you can find it in the ethnic hair section @ the drugstore- it acts as an antiseptic/ disinfectant plus has a nice strong mint smell). Good luck!
I have a dog that has marked his territory on the bedpost in my spare bedroom. The carpet is an off white and I will lose my deposit if I can't get this out. It is dried and terrible.
