How Can I Remove Pet Stains & Odors from Carpet
1) Act Immediately. Between treating a pet stain fresh and one that has had time to set in, the difference is dramatic. Blot up the excess liquid and solid mess should be picked up, with your choice of rag or paper towel (or a series of them). Use an additional dry rag placed on the area with a heavy weight on top of it after you blotted to allow it to stand on the weight for a couple minutes. The more liquid that gets absorbed the better, and the easier the stain and odors will be removed.
2) Mix Solution. In a squirt bottle, bucket, or bowl, mix the white distilled vinegar and lukewarm water. The mess will need to be contained, so slowly add baking soda as it will fuzz. Without over saturation, apply the solution generously. Allow it to set for approximately 5-20 minutes.
3) Treat & Rinse. Blot the area well with a dry cloth or towel. Once the solution is removed, used a water-damp cloth to remove any residual solution.
4) Dry. Place a dry towel and weight it down, with books or other heavy objects. Once it is allowed to dry, follow up with a thorough vacuuming.
