Use Salt To Absorb Urine Accidents

If you're potty training your child or even a pet and they have an accident, immediately pour salt over the top. Watch the spot when you can see moisture on top of the pile of salt. Continue to add more salt until it remains dry on top. Leave for 10 minutes then vacuum up the salt. This draws all the moisture out of the carpet and eliminates any odor. Works great, I've used it many many times!

This makes a lot of sense! If you catch the accident in time does it help pull it out of the carpet pad and stop the odor?

Go, Grandma, go! If only we would have realized how wise grandmas were when we were younger!
