Getting Out Puppy Accidents
When potty training a puppy you can spend a fortune on urine order removing products.
You do not need too. In a pinch you can use some very effective homemade alternatives. Follow these simple steps for success:
Step one: Try to clean up the urine before it dries. You can clean dried dog urine, but for best results try to do it before it dries and encourages bacterial growth. This is what causes the unpleasant order. Use paper towels to get up the majority of the moisture.
Step Two: Apply a mixture of half water and half white vinegar over the urine spot. Work in the mixture with a small scrub brush. Again, take up the excess moisture with paper towels. Allow the area to dry. You can help it along by placing a fan near it.
Step three: If you have a hand held spot remover like little green clean machine you can use this to remove the vinegar smell. If not use ¼ a cup of hydrogen peroxide and one teaspoon dishwashing liquid and ¼ a cup of water. Again work this mixture in the spot and then remove the excess liquid with a paper towel. Let it dry and vacuum. Color fast test you carpet in an unseen area if you a worried about creating a bleached out spot on your carpet.
When cleaning up after any pet do not use ammonia based cleaning products. They smell like urine and will only encourage your pet to reuse the same spot to urinate.
