Urine stains are not uncommon to pet owners or new parents. Urine can create an odor, and a carpet can be more quickly freshened the quicker the urine is cleaned up. Removing the urine quickly also helps with removing the stain more easily. So, the next time your pet or tiny toddler makes a mess, do not fret. Attack the odor with a quickness and it will be removed in no time.
Things You'll Need
- Paper towel
- 1 tbsp non-bleach liquid dish detergent
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- White cloth
- Eye dropper
- Hydrogen peroxide
Utilize a paper towel and blot the area to retrieve as much of the urine as possible.
Create a mixture of 2 cups of warm water, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of non-bleach liquid dish detergent.
Apply the mixture to the urine stain. Blot the area with a white cloth to retrieve the moisture from the carpet. Use a different area of the cloth to see how much of the urine you are picking up. Continue this process until all of the urine has been removed. If you find you cannot retrieve the entire stain then add a dropper full of hydrogen peroxide to the remaining stain and repeat the blotting process. The urine may not be visible, but there still may be a faint odor. If the odor remains then you have not removed all of the urine. When the odor is gone, so is the urine.
Vacuum the carpet to pick up excess particles and to add texture to the carpet.
