How to: Pet Stain Removal on Carpets

Do you own a dog or cat or any other pet that you let roam freely around your house like a small child? Then you might have experienced trying to clean up one of their little accidents in the house or muddy paws all over the carpets and furniture.

One of the best methods Clean That Carpet has found is using simple household white vinegar, water and baking soda to clean away all of those troubles.

Having pets is a wonderful thing. For many people, their pets are considered like children and as such, when accidents happen they are happy to clean it up, and teach their pets not to do it again. Toilet training is an on-going process that takes time, so you will need some cleaning tips to help you along the in the process.

As it is necessary to train your pets good habits, and let them know when they do naughty things in the home, it is important to reward pets for good behaviour when toilet training is complete. You might want to get your pet some treats, a new toy or even an identity tag for their collar.

The first step to removing any stains is to ensure that the spot does not have any excess liquid left in it before you start the cleaning process. You will need to absorb as much of the liquid as you can with a paper towel or cloth by blotting on the spot until it is as dry as you can get it.

To make the solution you will need to pour two cups of white distilled vinegar into a spray bottle or bowl and mix it with two cups of lukewarm water. You will then need to pour this mixture over the stain and leave it to soak and then add a small amount of baking soda (around 4 large tablespoons), enough to cover the spot and vinegar/ water solution.

You will literally see the little accident disappear from the carpet or piece of furniture and be absorbed right into the pile of baking soda.

In order to gain the most out of this and clean the carpet more effectively, leave the baking soda and vinegar on the stain to dry for a couple of hours to a day depending on how bad the stain was originally and then sweep up the left over powder and dispose of it in a bin and vacuum thoroughly over the affected area. This will then result in a lovely, clean, odourless surface that is no longer darkened by your pets’ urine, vomit or defecation.

This is truly a brilliant method for removing any stains caused by your beloved pets and requires no rubbing or scrubbing, it’s just simple, easy and fast and it can also save you a lot of time and money as you do not need to buy or rent a carpet cleaner because the ingredients for this easy cleaning hack can be found in your own house or at any general supermarket. I recommend using this method for all my fellow pet owners and parents for any future instances with cheeky little animals.
