So your pup had an accident in the worst possible place. Maybe it was in your car or carpet, but wherever it was, you’ll want to get rid of the mess, including the stains and scent.
This is not only for appearances, but so that your pup doesn’t come back to get the same place again! Here are some tips on cleaning up messes. Work fast!
If your fur ball urinates on a carpet, quickly mop up the puddle with a sponge or paper towel so it doesn’t seep through and absorb a permanent stench. Then, get rid of that smell with special products, like Triple Action Pet Odor Eliminator, or something along those lines, designed to remove pet stains. These usually contain bacteria or enzyme digesters.
Use an ample amount of the product, and leave it on as long as the directions say. Cover the spot with plastic wrap so it doesn’t dry out. You can also mix lavender oil and bicarbonate of soda and apply it to the spot once it’s done to ensure the odor is gone. Leave it for two hours before vacuuming.
Let’s say your pup did a number two instead. Basically, you’ll need to do the same thing as you did for urine. But you’ll have to get the fecal matter out first. Do this with a spatula or piece of cardboard, then soak the remaining moisture with paper towels of coffee filters before applying warm water with a sponge. Finally, carry on with the enzyme digesters.
Now, on to cleaning up vomit. This is much trickier as the acidity may make the color of a carpet change. You’d be best off treating the spot with carpet detergent and then washing it with hot water. If there’s an old stain you want to get rid of, let it be said that this is nearly impossible. Apply enzyme digester for about 4 hours, then add on a mixture of 1 cup of vinegar to one gallon of warm water. Rinse it off, then use the digester again. If all else fails, you’ll have to replace that patch of carpet.
Good luck with your stain-removing endeavors! Do like and share if this was helpful!
