How To Get Dog Urine Out Of Carpet
Puppies and older dogs alike have accidents, leaving the owners to figure out how to get dog urine out of carpet. These dog urine accidents need to be addressed immediately or the carpet will stain, smell and a dog will follow his nose back to the spot to relieve himself over and over. Hopefully, you catch the dog in the act or very shortly after, before the dog urine dries into the carpet, pad and sub-flooring.
You will need:
- Paper towel
- Liquid laundry detergent
- Rag or sponge
- White vinegar
- Place a thick layer of paper towels over the dog urine spot and step on it. Wear shoes to avoid stepping into the dog urine with bare feet. Discard the paper towels.
- Place a second thick layer of paper towels to absorb the dog urine. Continue to blot the urine until the paper towels do not absorb any more dog urine.
- Mix 1 cup of very warm water with 1 tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent, dip a rag or sponge into the mixture and wring it out over the dog urine spot. Place a thick layer of paper towels over the wet area and blot it up. Dig a rag or sponge into the mixture, wring it out and blot it up. Continue to do this until the bowl is empty.
- Mix 1/4 cup of white vinegar with 1/2 of a cup of water. Pour the mixture onto the area the dog urinated. Blot it up with several layers of paper towels, continue to blot until the paper towels do not have any moisture to absorb.
This method works very well to remove dog urine from carpet and removing the odor. Without the odor to refer back to your dog will not habitually choose the same spot to urinate in. Always test a hidden area of the carpet for colorfastness before using any stain removal technique.
