I think you will find that the baking soda, white vinegar & water are sufficent enough without all the extras as they do a good job on their own.

I did not know what sodium lauryl sulfate was so I did a Google search. Don't think I want it on my floor; it can be an irritant to animals according to animal rights activists.


Although I think I read that it's an ingredient in some soaps and in colones. Go figure.

Firstly your problem results fron letting your dogs roam free in the house and not letting them out at regular times. new, or untrained dogs need to be kenneled when introduced to the house. I personally trained mine by putting many leases around the house. For 1 month, I hooked them to leashes in every room I was in. They won't pee leashed to a 2 1/2 ft leash. And let them out every 2 hours. Little dogs more often. Clear up the odor on carpet then start retraining. Take the time to train correctly, and it will pay off.

The best method for removing organic stains for a homeowner would be to use peroxide. Professionals use strong oxidizers to do it quickly, but many times you can use household peroxide applied liberally, to do the same, it takes time (just let it dry into the carpet, don't blot or vacuum away) and sometimes multiple applications.


( only on synthetic carpet, not wool, silk, cotton, jute etc.).
