Home Remedy to Remove Pet Urine Odor - Pets

Thank you so much for this recipe. I used the vinegar and baking soda mixture to remove urine stains and strong odors from my son’s carpeted room. It worked wonders! Both our puppy and our 2 year old are potty training and have peed on his floor several times a week. I made this concoction today (had to half it due to the size of my spray bottle), and I added 4 drops of lavender essential oil too. It worked like a dream. There’s a hint of lavender smell in his room and nothing else.

What about finding a urine stain on carpet that has dried. Is the method for removal the same? How Does Vinegar Effectively Clean?
So why is vinegar known as a miracle clean-all cleaner? Since we now know that vinegar is acid based, it’s easier to understand how it can clean so effectively. When the acid is applied to the acids in the grease, it breaks it down quickly.

The typical vinegar that can be purchased at the grocery is actually only 5% solution (the remainder being mostly water), yet it’s very effective at degreasing just about anything in your home. Vinegar can be sprayed on windows, no wax floors, and most importantly urine stains and pet odors. Remember that uric acid we talked about? When vinegar is poured onto the contaminated area, within 5-10 minutes, that stain will be broken down and essentially eliminate the urine. On top of that, vinegar’s components serve as a natural germ-killer, although not as effective as bleach, will kill the most common household bacteria. Distilled white vinegar has the capability to kill 99% of surface bacteria, 80% of germs, and 82% of molds.
