“best way to get rid of dog urine smell +remove rat urine stains”

It didn’t stain mine and I left it on over night but always test a small area first and don’t be shocked if you see the baking soda start to bubble, it is supposed to do that… be sure to add enough solution.
Finally, your cat might not be fond of their litter box situation. It could be because they don’t like the type of litter you’ve made available, because they don’t like the box style, or because the box isn’t clean enough. As always, examining when this behavior began and linking it to changes in your cat’s environment is an important part of stopping the behavior.
Avoid using bleach or any cleaner containing ammonia. Urine contains ammonia and by using an ammonia based cleaner it will only kill the odour for a short time before it makes it worse, causing your pet to return and keep urinating in the same place.
Pour enough vinegar and water (a 50/50 mix) on the spot to dampen the area. Do not over wet, you want to keep the stain contained to the area you’re working on – not spreading it around unnecessarily.
Check clothing for urine. If any clothing has urine, add 1 cup (60 ml) of apple cider vinegar to the laundry detergent in your regular wash. If you still smell urine, add some enzymatic cleaner to your wash.[4]
Love this stuff and you can’t find it in the stores. I had to order it online. I have 9 cats and 11 exotic animals and it works great! I like using it on my ferret shelves even though it’s for fabric. A little misting on the carpet freshens the room. The smell is not overpowering which is a good thing since I have allergies!
I would personally not use the wood pen. If it was the source of the odor, you’d probably know pretty quick by giving it a sniff. Even if it’s not, any scent that sinks into will encourage him to go there again. I recommend a commercial puppy pen (plastic or metal) or the use of a kennel/crate-at least until he’s learned he can’t potty everywhere. Much easier to clean as well. I don’t know how old he is, but if he’s quite young, he truly cannot physically control it past a certain point, so if you have to leave for long periods during the day I place a blanket or towel on one side of the pen and a potty pad on the other so they can differentiate where they potty from where they hang out. I know-people say if the area is small enough they won’t go potty where they sleep. This is not true. Plenty will, and then they traipse in it! So potty pads come in handy for keeping them out of the mess and tracking it around as well.
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.
Vacuum floors and upholstery. Dirty carpets and furniture can harbor bad smells that make your living areas stink. To remove dust and smelly particles, vacuum all the carpets in the house with a wide brush attachment. To remove dusty and musty smells from furniture, vacuum all upholstered furniture using an upholstery attachment.
Many products that are considered odor eliminators, like air fresheners, do not eliminate bad odors at all.  Instead, they mask or attempt to mask the bad odors with “pleasant” fragrances.  Because everyone has a unique sense of smell, not everyone can agree on which fragrances are pleasant (except maybe bacon), and which are less pleasant or simply not desirable at all.  And because we all smell things differently, the same masking fragrance may or may not cover up the bad smells we sense with our own nose.
Stinkers! is a powerful odor remover that’s tough enough for the nastiest of all organic household smells, and it actually eliminates the offending odor without just masking it. Stinkers! is available in a ready-to-use spray bottle or a 10x concentrated solution, and is safe for all fabrics, leaves no residue, and requires no rinsing. You can’t get much easier than that!
Mark each spot that you find. If you’re on the stain-finding warpath, make sure don’t get ahead of yourself and forget where all the stains are. Keep a roll of blue painter tape on you while you’re looking around, and mark each spot that needs to be cleaned with a small strip of blue When you’ve found all the stains you want to clean up, go back with your cleaning materials and find your stains easily.
Unlike cleaning carpet, cleaning non-carpet surfaces requires a non-ammonia and non-vinegar based detergent/cleaning product. It can be homemade, commercial or all-natural. Note: Make sure the product does not contain bleach, because mixing bleach with the ammonia in cat urine can create dangerous gases.
If you’re not dealing with too many stains, but are instead overwhelmed by the smells of your pet’s leavings then you’re in good hands with this pet and dog urine odor remover from Angry Orange. It’s specifically designed to eliminate pet odor, but it’s really not going to do much about staining.
*Based on studies conducted by independent laboratories of Chem-Dry’s HCE (Hot Carbonating Extraction), P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Removal Treatment), Granite Countertop Renewal, and Tile, Stone & Grout cleaning processes. Allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen. Pet odor results based on testing with the most common odor sources found in dog and cat urine. Pet urine bacteria results based on Chem-Dry’s HCE cleaning process and a sanitizer, combined with P.U.R.T. All bacteria results include use of sanitizer. Figures are an average across multiple tests.
Shannon, I’ve used Simple Solution right in the wash. I’d take the comforter to a laundromat and use one of their great big machines. Often times the smaller machines can’t even get the entire comforter wet. They’re just too big. But yeah, I’d use a cup or so of an enzymatic cleaner in addition to your regular detergent and let it dry in the sun.
If you’re tired of constantly cleaning up after your cat, or you fear that the urine has soaked down to the carpet pad or throughout your hardwood floor, call a professional. Granted, it will cost more, but it is likely to be more effective.
Clean up any pet urine that’s still wet. If the urine dries, it stains the carpet and increases bacteria growth. To best remove the stain, place a layer of several paper towels over the wet area of the carpet. Walk on the paper towels so that they absorb as much of the pet pee as possible. Removing wet urine reduces urine smell.
