My little dog has peed on her little bed and by the time I found it the sponge cushion has humongous amounts of urine. How can I remove it?
Use an enzyme cleaner like Natures Miracle
Oxyclean has been most helpful with ours.. and rabbit pee which is one of the toughest, we've found :)
I have an 19yr old Pomeranian who has sever bladder control issues. I have found washing his bedding in warm water with Amonia the best way to neutralize the odor,kill the germs.
If the bedding can be tossed in the washing machine I would do this. I have always washed my dogs toys and bedding in the machines to keep them fresh and clean.
I have used Borateem for years for urine odor. Just put it in with your detergent and wash as usual. You may need to wash it two or three times. Borateem is used primarily for odor not stains.
I would wash it with cool water (not hot hot water), and use half a cup of vinegar and half a cup of baking soda, and a squirt of dish soap. If you use hot water, it will cause the urine smell to be way worse, so use cool water when you clean it. Good luck!!
My cat has just peed on our dog's bed. Right after I felt the wet spot I wiped it with soap and water. After that I did a mixture of vinager and water, it's still wet and smells like cat pee and vinegar. It still stinks. And I mean stinks. I can't wash the dog bed because there's nothing on the tag saying anything about machine wash or any wash. So I don't know if I should even just soak it in the bathtub. It's polyester fiber, with no removeable covering. Please Help!
This recipe works on anything with cat urine on it from carpet to beds to whole chairs. I bought a small chaise lounge chair for toddlers at a yard sale only to discover it was covered in cat pee. I soaked it in a kiddie pool in this solution and then dried it in the sun. I did it twice to make sure all of the odor was gone so that my male dogs wouldn't get any ideas about urinating on it. The recipe is 2 TBS of dawn dish liquid, 2 TBS baking soda, 16 oz. hydrogen peroxide. Mix and pour on affected area. Let dry naturally. Do not blot or dry up.It is the ONLY thing I have ever found to be successful!
For cat urine damage, I always use baking soda. just let it sit on the spot for a while and vacuum or shake out. You may have to do it more than once, but it does work.
I cant imagine for a second that a dog bed wouldnt be washable - & lets face it, if its soaked in cat pee you've got nothing to lose but to try a couple of things. The alternative is to throw it out & get a new one.
I adore my cats & have tried so many different products to clean cat pee out of various things, the one I swear by is a recipe I mix up myself out of a few household items, it works without fail, everytime & the smell never comes back.
I got the recipe from www.caturineoff.com - if you want to get rid of the cat pee you have to try this. (I'd tell you the recipe, but these people have saved my marriage more than once so they deserve the referal)
