First and obligatory action is immediately after noticing to remove a significant amount of moisture with a sponge and then to start washing the spot with the solution of water and vinegar. Some people just dilute the vinegar with the water in a ratio 1:3 but there are several opinions on this subject. We can try also to prepare the smell cleaning liquid in a different way.
Larger beds will likely have a removable cover on them. Wash the cover in the washing machine. To target odors in the stuffing, sprinkle the stuffing with a bit of baking soda. Vacuum off the baking soda, then replace the clean cover. A clean, odor-free pet bed awaits.

7. I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH how well this thing picks up hair and carpet fuzz! I would never have thought that a carpet that is 10 years old, is vacuumed once a day with a Dyson and shampooed PROFESSIONALLY twice a year would have any fuzz left, let alone tons of pet hair and let me tell you, this thing brings it up. I did shampoo the room twice over (once through, then go back again) and it was AS FULL the second time of pet hair as it was the first. AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Made me want to immediately do a third time over, but alas, my bad back was out after two times over this extra large room of carpet. It will occasionally leave long strands of matted fuzz and fur in its wake when I am using it. This could also be considered a “CON” because you have to bend over and pick these up all over the carpet. 🙂 Lazy. I know.
Just tried this and it really works! It completely removed the smell on carpet that had been repeatedly peed on. We got a dog from animal friends and when I went back to teaching she’s been peeing in the corner area of my living room. It smelled like a kennel. All of the smell is gone!
You don’t have to accept this as part of your adventure with your favorite furry friends. Get a cleaner, get the right shampoo, and you’ll be glad to know that there is an end in sight to what some consider the primary disadvantage of pet ownership. Just make sure you do your research and you’re good to go and well on your way to an odor and stain free home that you thought was an impossibility since you brought Fido home from the pound.
Your kidneys serve to filter excess water and water-soluble wastes out of your blood, getting rid of toxins and things that would otherwise build up and cause you to become ill. Many things — from excess protein and sugar to bacteria and yeast — may make their way into your urine.
Basically pink liquid is used usually but in case of long-standing stains of dog’s urine or very old stains we should prepare dark or almost black mixture of the potassium permanganate (we just add more of the crystals in the warm water).
Sometimes we are so distracted by the fact that dog puddle appeared again on our favorite carpet that we immediately forget about all the tips and secret methods. Some of us start screaming at the pet and the others just throw the carpet out on the balcony until it will dry out. Unfortunately liquid will only evaporate but not the smell.
Thus, if you’re a woman who has been noticing a fishy smell coming from your urine, this unpleasant fishy odor is actually emanating from your vagina, and you should be checked by your gynecologist for a vaginal infection.
Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is a weak base chemical. As such, it neutralizes many acids, which are the cause of most odors, including any your pet can create on his own. This means that, unlike topical fragrances, baking soda does not merely mask odors, it destroys an acid’s ability to make an odor.
That has also helped tremendously in reducing the amounts of hairs being scratched off/shedding all the time and if you raise a puppy up with regular vacuuming, yes, you read it correctly VACUUMING (*With the brush attachment, on low, check it first on yourself and go around the ears, never on them!) they will absolutely love it as adults, especially on their tummies! They will come running when they hear you start up the vacuum as they think it’s time to be brushed!

I am often contacted by readers of my articles. This is the story of one reader, Sophia. She told me about her experience with carpets that smelled of dog urine in a house that her family has recently moved into.
On the carpets, bed and furniture, sprinkle baking soda liberally, using a cleaning brush to spread it around and into the fabric. Let it all sit overnight so that the baking soda has a chance to absorb the odors.
Since getting my first pup, I have encountered her peeing everywhere. My solution to get odor out is to spray the spot with a bug spray, not only does it stop her from going back to the spot it also takes the odor out. Seems the bug spray is stronger than urine, the smell goes away in a couple of minutes but, stays longer enough for her to smell and leave it alone, I used Hot Shot flying insect spray. It’s harmful because the dog won’t go near it.

Assuming the pee has not saturated the padding underneath, I have used Odormute, for over fifteen years with excellent results. Originally, I was told by a local police that they use this product to remove the blood from cement at crime scenes. It is natural enzyme product and totally safe as far as I can tell and I am a fanatic about natural products. You will still need to use a cleaner on the carpet; nonetheless, the odor should be gone.
Whether it be from pet urine or a spill, once you have thoroughly removed all residue and think you have it all, place several layers of white paper towel on the freshly cleaned wet area. Next, weight the paper towel down. I use a large piece of ceramic/porcelain tile, and let it sit for about 48 hours. You will be amazed at what dries up into the paper towel instead of drying in the top fibers of your carpet.
A baking soda paste with some essential oils (baking soda, a few drops of essential oil, enough water to form a paste) gently spread/rubbed over the surface and allowed to sit for 30 minutes, wiped up, and then followed by a vinegar spritz, is useful if none of the above work for you (all the above can be used on old or fresh stains/odors.)
If you face the problem on the everyday basis (usually it is happening when you have a puppy and you are just trying to teach the puppy to pee where he should) you can prepare a small bottle of the mixture.
When urine dries, it leaves behind crystals in the carpet fibre which attract water – so wee stains in carpet tend to always be a bit damp from the moisture in the air.. which means that they always pong a bit.
That means keeping your animal in a cage 16 plus hours a day??? Why don’t you simply take him/her outside for a short pee break at intervals??when you wake, at lunch. after work and before bed…it’s cruel to cage an animal 16 hours, why bother having an animal if all you do is keep it in a tight cage
Isopropyl alcohol, better known as rubbing alcohol, is an effective disinfectant and has antibacterial properties. Its powerful scent is not agreeable for canines. Dilute rubbing alcohol using one part alcohol and one part water and spray it on your carpets. Reapply the mixture weekly or after each cleaning of the carpets.
Thank you so much!!!!! I am having this problem with one of my dogs. We have been using the baking soda and that dries it up. We have tried all kinds of store bought sprays that promise to work, but none of them do work. The vinegar sounds perfect ( the way you explained it makes perfect sense.) I am going to start doing it today. I just stumbled on this, Thank God for that.

Wash urine collection devices thoroughly. Disinfect reusable parts with commercial cleansers or with a solution containing one part white vinegar and two parts water. Don’t bother with bleach, which is harsh and does not dissolve urine crystals as well as vinegar.
Have two dogs, when we go out and be gone couple of hrs, they piss and poop on the carpet.It is in the smae spot everytime. I have scrubbed an did evrything to get rid of this smell. How do I keep them from using the bathroom and in the same spot?
This sounds supremely silly, but is the kennel smell more dog smell then urine smell? If so, he may just need a good bath to help stop the furniture smelling too “doggy” 😉 If his urine is really overpowering, I would make sure he’s drinking enough water. It would be highly unlikely for a young male dog to have a UTI of any sort, but something to think about if the smell is sickly strong.
With pets, pee happens, often happens on carpets. But there’s no need to panic. There are several methods of removing dog urine—and the distinctive odor it creates—from carpets without using chemicals that may be harmful to you or your pup.
