Use vinegar and water to clean animal urine accidents from carpet. It will smell of vinegar only temporarily, but neutralize the pH level and discourage animals from having an accident there again.

The pee recipe I used was 2 cups of peroxide, 2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 2 drops of dishwashing soap and it worked like a dream! Test on a spot that is hidden, but I used it on urine, coffee and whatever other stains I had on the carpet and poof it was gone.


Marvelous cleaner!

Who ever posted that did wonders for my stains. It said not not rub, but let it sit and dry and it will vacuum up. I very softy washed a huge coffee stain and it was gone within minutes. Thanks so much to the person that posted this!

I am looking for a homemade recipe to get rid of dog odor in my dirt back yard. They all seem to pee in the same area every time.

Ridding of the dog odor simple. Increase the amount of water your dog gets. Should be light yellow and no smell for a healthy dog. Our pup had problems when we got her, then the stinky urine. By making sure she had plenty of water all the time, we have no spots in the yard.

You could try EMs (Effective Microorganisms). They are supposed to eat the ammonia smell and they are beneficial for plants and animals (and humans). I use a bathroom deodorizer with them and it is amazing.


It works in the litterbox to cut down the nasty ammonia odor as well. Do a Google search and you can find lots of information, including how to make a culture once you buy the starter.

Is there a cheap homemade recipe to neutralise the urine odour on a largish scale and not indoors?

There is a product I found at Sam's Club called Oda-Ban. Works great. Also sounds like you have cats urinating all over the place. If you put any kind of citrus peelings all around they will not go their. They hate the smell of citrus. A friend of mine uses moth balls all around her house. This also works but I'd rather use orange or lemon peels. Believe me... this works. Hope this helps.
