So, without further ado, let’s discuss three of the best pre-cleaner shampoos around. They’re made for cleaning carpets and if you combine them with the right machine… you’ll never have to worry about a stained or smelly carpet again.
Stain isolators… isolate stains. This keeps the urine or other serious issues out of your normal water tank. While it might not be a problem in many situations, you’ll quickly find that frequent usage without one is going to take some ammonia and a rag to make sure your entire machine doesn’t start to reek.
I’ve used the vinegar/water cleaner, followed by hydrogen peroxide/baking soda procedure for the last several years. We have three labs, and had two cats (one of whom is no longer with us). The process worked well for stains AND odor. Actually, doing the carpet AGAIN as we speak!
Foamy: No matter what color it is, you should check in with your doctor if it consistently looks foamy and frothy. It may be a sign you have protein in your urine, which may mean you have issues with your kidneys.
I wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for this pet urine odor remover solution. After many (failed) attempts at removing my dog’s pee odor from the carpet, with other pet products, I can honestly say that your method has become my go-to solution.  Read all Testimonials
On carpet, cover the area with paper towels or an absorbent cloth and use your hands or feet to gently press. This will help draw out and soak up as much liquid as possible. You may need to use several paper towels, and repeal the process until the area is almost completely dry.
Search at night or in complete darkness. Pet urine can be difficult to see, especially when old, so maximize your search efforts by taking advantage of darkness. Either wait for night, or make the room as dark as possible.
However effective you are at spot cleaning those ‘little accidents’, there is always going to be a time when you want to clean the whole carpet. This could also be the case if you have moved into a new home where pets lived previously.
If you go to a horse store, you can get some stall neutralizer that works for the rocks. I live in the desert and so I really do not have grass. I sprinkle this every so often and it helps immensely. It will come in a 40 lb bag and it is safe for pets.
Epsom salt is a widely available home remedy for many ailments, including constipation. A person can use Epsom salt as a laxative by mixing it with the right amount of water. In this article, learn how to use Epsom salt for constipation safely. We also cover the possible risks and when to see a doctor.
Blue RARE: Artificial colors in foods or drugs; bilirubin; medications such as methylene blue; unusual UTIs Usually benign; consult your physician if it persists, especially if you have pain or burning (dysuria), and/or frequent urination (polyuria), which are symptoms of UTI
I have used Listerine on all kinds of surfaces with absolutely no ill effects. I keep a spray bottle of it on hand to use as a way of keeping my cats away from areas where I don’t want them. It can be lightly sprayed on furniture, carpet, drapes, hardwood floors and just about anything else with no problems. It is more effective as a fabric freshener than Febreze and other products of that nature. In a fine mist bottle, it makes a good air freshener. It is much better used this way than in your mouth! LOL! 😀
In recent years, there’s been quite a market for this kind of cleaning product. A lot of people tend to think of these two problems as separate sides of the same coin but they can actually be handled quite well with a single solution if you’re careful about your selection.
I​’m interested in the intersection between design and technology​—whether for ​drywall or robotic vacuums—and how the resulting combination affects consumers. I’ve written about consumer advocacy issues for publications like The Atlantic, PC Magazine, and Popular Science, and now I’m happy to be tackling the topic for CR.

Most cleaners and odor removers work their best if you attack the problem as soon as it happens. The quicker you get to the disaster the better off you’ll be. Enzymatic solutions are particularly useful this way since fresher material will find the material more “palatable” in the immediate aftermath.
When your dog pees on your carpet, there are a few issues you have to address — the smell, the carpet stains and how much of the carpet is saturated, i.e. how long since he peed (and how long the urine has had to seep deep into the carpet).
The following list of conditions have ‘Urine odor’ or similar listed as a symptom in our database. This computer-generated list may be inaccurate or incomplete. Always seek prompt professional medical advice about the cause of any symptom.
Orange: When your pee is the color of a citrus-flavored soft drink, it’s probably because of meds like high-dose vitamin B2, the UTI drug phenazopyridine, or the antibiotic isoniazid. Depending on the color, it could also be a sign that you’re dehydrated or that there’s a problem with your liver or bile duct. You should ask your doctor about it.
Not only is it difficult to deal with a pet urine accident once one has occurred, but it’s also tough to know where past accidents may have taken place, including accidents you may not have even known about. Using a special UV light, Chem-Dry can detect pet accidents in your home and eliminate pet urine odors from your carpets, rugs and upholstery through our revolutionary cleaning process called P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment).  P.U.R.T. contacts the source of the odor and immediately begins a chemical reaction that destroys the pet urine odor. It’s shown excellent results on even the most severe pet urine damage.
First, our trained professional will do an inspection of your carpets with a special ultraviolet light. This light exposes any problem areas and odorous urine deposits that may not be visible to the naked eye.
There is one flaw, however, which is that the same citrus smell that discourages your pets from reusing the area is created by orange oil. This is terrible for any kind of hardwood flooring and it’s not worth the risk as it can strip the finish.

you said that you are treating your dog with Crananidin and Cosequin every other day. And that “Nutramax pharm. makes the products. Is this a mail order pharm. And did your vet come up with this solution on taking this or did you research on the internet.
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!
Urine is the body’s liquid waste. It is made by the kidneys, which filters toxins out of the blood. It contains water, salt, urea, and uric acid. Urea is expelled in the form of sweat through the body, while uric acid is the result of urine metabolism.
Well, my puppy started pottying on my new carpet after a few months, for some reason. I clean the spots by first soaking it all up with paper towels, then using OUT. I also used my carpet cleaner machine. However, I went back with the black light and the spots are still showing up just as bright. I’m sick. What to do?
Step 4: Once the carpet is almost dry — which could be several hours later — sprinkle a little baking soda on the area to absorb the odor. Allow the baking soda to settle into the carpet fibers for about 15 minutes, then vacuum the area.
Pet hair from dogs and cats can become embedded in carpet and is hard to remove even by vacuuming. To remove pet hair from carpeting, attach an old mop handle to a window squeegee, and use the rubber blade to rake up the pet hair.
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.
Sophia: I really need to do something about this problem in the house we just moved into 3 weeks ago. Before we moved into this house we had the entire carpet professionally steam cleaned. The carpet cleaner could smell dog urine as soon as he came into the house (it was a rainy day). It has been three weeks and we still smell it in a couple of the rooms.
I have 2 adult dogs and one just had a litter of 10 puppies, I have had to tear up the carpets in my home 3 times. I have only a center carpet left and now the smell of dog urine is back and I am done throwing out carpet. Please help to rid the smell and maybe some way to deture them from using the same spots all the time
As our aim is not just to wash the spot but to prevent our dog from peeing there again we should try to use some ingredients which has very strong smell. Using vodka or alcohol (as they have such a strong odor themselves) will help to avoid the future repetition of the pee smell situation. In order to eliminate the smell from the carpet surface we need to apply vodka by wetting the spot with the cloth or spraying it with the spray bottle. After applying the alcohol we should rub the surface with some force. After rubbing we should take a dry paper towel and wipe the remaining liquid from the carpet. We should again and again wipe the surface until the paper towel will remain completely dry.
I didn’t have any fresh urine stains, but there is a spot that was my puppy’s favorite before he was fully house-trained. This product has a pleasant smell, and definitely gets rid of any doggy odor. I put two bottles in my carpet steamer, and the whole house smells great now. I tried it on a spot where my cats had a spat (cat spray!), THIS PRODUCT WORKED. The only reason it’s not five stars is because the bottles are TINY.

Where do I begin to sing the praises on this one? I had to order it separately from Bissell.com, BUT it was well worth it. I think it only cost around $20 with s/h but you can double check that at the site. I used it on the hardwood with the solution that is also sold on the site. Didn’t notice much difference. But then I moved to my tile which is knobbly and has lots of crevices that have made me rethink my decision to get “non-slippery” tile for my kitchen. I set up the machine, using the solution and followed the directions on the bottle. I then began working that dingy, nasty tile floor over. Let me start by letting you know that this tile floor is over 10 years old, has NEVER been completely clean UNLESS I have gotten on my hands and knees and scrubbed it tile by tile, inch by inch with a brush and Clorox Clean up. Yes, you know I am doing that every weekend. Just kidding. I do it Spring and Fall. That is it. The rest of the time I am mopping with bleach water, just to keep the grout looking semi decent. Never works. This machine DOES NOT get into my deep/recessed grout, BUT it leaves the tile floor the cleanest feeling it has ever been. Even brand new! My daughter and I are barefoot people who HATE to have the feeling of dirt on our feet. This cleaner makes the tile floor clean and non-sticky. One thing I have to mention is I cannot attest to streaks as my tile is porous and does not have a glaze on it. I take an old towel once I am done with the entire floor and drag the towel with my feet. The machine will get up the water for the most parts, but often leaves a scant line of water on either side of the head. I usually can get it by just going back over with the machine, but if I miss parts, I simply use the towel. The entire kitchen would NORMALLY take me 30 minutes to mop (large kitchen/dining area) and now I am done in less than 15 minutes with the cleanest kitchen floor ever!
If some stubborn soda still remains after you vacuum once, spay a light mist of vinegar and water over it to re-wet the baking soda, and place a dry rag over the area for another hour or two until it dries again. Then vacuum a second time.
While commercial products offer a lot of advantages, there are a couple of ways that you can take care of things yourself without investing in a product. They might not be quite as efficacious but it’s always good to save a bit of cash.
Cats love to rub their smell on the corners of couches, chairs, tables, walls, doors, fridges, bench bases, or anything else they can potentially mark with their scent glands (ever see your cat rubbing their face on your legs?). Try wiping furniture with vinegar and washing all curtains, too.
The only possible case when you can use the iodine to remove the urine smell is the case when you have a dark carpet. Prepare weak solution of the iodine (15 drops of iodine should be diluted in 1 liter of water). The diluted iodine is applied on the spot for 5-7 minutes. After that you should rinse the carpet with the textile soaked in warm water.
Your product will be shipped to its final destination to arrive in 2 business days or faster. If your order is placed before the 11 a.m. PST cutoff time, then it will ship that day and arrive 2 business days later. If your order is placed after the 11 a.m. PST cutoff time, we will do our best to process it the same day but may need an extra day.
If you suspect you have a urinary tract problem, you should consult your physician. One of the first things he or she is likely to do is a urine test. Urine tests have been around for more than 6,000 years1 and are easy, noninvasive tools for quickly assessing your health status2.
If you’re faced with set-in stains or smells you can’t get rid of, it may be time to call in a professional, as sometimes spot-removal isn’t enough, Hatch said. “Unfortunately, urine doesn’t just stay at the top of carpet, it soaks into carpet padding and backing and can even soak into the sub floor,” he said. Spot cleaning can only get the urine at the face fibers of the carpet, and to truly remove the bacteria and the odors they can create, you’ll need a professional, he said.
The first solution most people try is a mixture of vinegar and baking soda. Mix a cup of white vinegar, two tablespoons of baking soda, and a cup of warm water then apply it to the stain while the whole mixture is still bubbling.
Popular stain removal products often have lengthy labels telling about how they use “enzymes” to digest and break down stains and odors on a molecular level. It sounds mighty fancy, but with a little time and patience you can easily make your own.
Consider steam-cleaning the carpet. If the enzymatic cleaner didn’t remove the stain completely, consider renting a steam cleaner or hiring a professional to do the job for you. Make sure to ask if they have a product to add into their solution designed for pet stains. Stains are a lot easier to remove when they’re fresh, so try to decide quickly if this is what you need to do.
But some diseases can also change the color and other characteristics of your urine, so it’s important to be alert and informed. With so many variables, you can’t always be sure of what’s causing any particular urine characteristic, short of laboratory testing. However, urine’s character gives you some clues to potential problems that may be developing, giving you time to do something about it.
In those with diabetic ketoacidosis, the body uses fat to fuel the body instead of sugar or glucose. As a result, ketones or blood acids build up in the system resulting in urine that smells subtly different, accompanied by fruity breath.8
If ammonia-smelling urine occurs every once in a while, it is rarely a reason for concern. However, if ammonia odor is accompanied by pain or symptoms of infection, including fever, it is time to see a doctor.

Using small piece of soap and a bit of water make a cleaning soapy liquid. The resulting soapy liquid is applied on the smelling surface. Wait for approximately 10 minutes. With the wet sponge remove the remaining soap and wash the spot.
A rare genetic condition, maple syrup urine disease causes problems with breaking down some amino acids in the proteins you consume. The result is your pee smells like maple syrup as the chemical buildup from undigested leucine, isoleucine, and valine changes how your urine smells. Due to the risk of brain damage in instances of fever, infection, or other physical stress, timely diagnosis is important. Lethargy, seizures, vomiting, and feeding difficulties are warning signs. It could even cause a person to go into a coma.12
Full sized cleaners can be something of a bear to handle. This makes them less ideal for those who aren’t quite as physically fit and also makes them harder to use in particularly tight environments. For a small apartment, inhabited by a smaller person, it doesn’t make sense and instead, you’ll want to focus on more pet oriented applications.

Freshen the air. Whether your house is plagued with pet odors or not, air fresheners can always sweeten your home’s scent. Pick a commercial freshener, or make your own. Either way, you’ll have a ton of options, from warm vanilla to fresh citrus. When you opt for commercial sprays, gels, or plug-ins, make sure they’re specially formulated to be safe for pets.[13] Spray it around the house to freshen the air.
3) Install indoor/outdoor carpet. There are very nice indoor/outdoor carpets for very cheap. Less than a hundred dollars to do any room in your house and even if your animals are horrible, they don’t soak up smell like regular carpet.
If I had any doubts whatsoever about this spray, they were gone after the memory foam mattress incident. I love my memory foam mattresses so when my old one had a huge hole eaten out of it by one of my dogs, I chopped it up and made dog beds. Inevitably, someone pee’d on it and I pulled out my trusty bottle of SUN dilute. I had to use a lot because of the foam, the pee went into the foam, every single layer. So I opened the bottle and slowly poured the SUN over the pee spot. I could actually SEE the pee changing colors!!!! Where the pee was in the foam you could see it had stained the foam but the SUN changed it back, so this truly convinced me that something in this takes pee out.
I have three Scotties. Cushing’s disease will cause a dog to pee a lot, drink a lot of water and you should check with your vet for diagnosis and medication. Currently have one that has it and previously had one that had it. Evidently it is fairly common in certain breeds. And urinary tract infections will also make doggies pee more frequently.
Just wanted to follow up with you about the clean smelling carpet in the stairway! …the carpet looks newer and is odor-free! Thank you… it has made a huge difference in the quality of life in the living room
As dog owners, we’ve all been there. You got delayed at the office or running errands, and your dog couldn’t hold it any longer. Of course, he picked the perfect place on the carpet to pee. Even worse, your pet has chosen a regular spot to relieve himself in your home because you haven’t been able to completely eliminate the smell.
Yes! Thank you for saying that! Real (raw) food is the only way they should eat. I feed my German Shepherd Dog raw meaty bone, raw meat and raw organs. It upsets me knowing animals are forced to eat commercial food with diseased and euthenized animals in the ingredients. (Of course it’s not listed but it’s in there)

Normal urine is clear and has a straw-yellow color. While the odor of urine can vary somewhat, in most cases, it does not have a strong smell. With dehydration, the urine is more concentrated and may have a stronger ammonia scent than normal. Consumption of certain foods, such as asparagus (which can impart a characteristic odor to urine), and taking some medications may be causes for changes in the odor of urine. The presence of bacteria in the urine, such as with a urinary tract infection (UTI), can affect the appearance and smell of urine. When there is an infection in the urinary tract, the urine may take on a foul-smelling odor as well as appear cloudy or bloody. A burning sensation during urination may be a symptom of a UTI. The urine may also have an abnormally sweet odor in uncontrolled diabetes, and some rare genetic conditions can also cause the urine to have an abnormal or strange odor.
I’ve been using the vinegar/water mix for years to rid the carpet of pet odors. It’s always worked well for me. I like the baking soda suggestion and if I get in a position where V/W doesn’t work, I’ll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestions Angie’s!
Put doggie door that leads to either back yard or garage. If into garage put doggie pads. If you have a patio in back yard also put doggie pads. If gets windy hold pads with small rocks on corners. If you live in apartment,t use doggie gates to a section. & place painters plastic on floor with doggie pads all over. It is alot of work & money on doggie pads but no pee on carpet especially if you live in apt & you have to work
I had come on here to find a way to remove pet stains. After reading through the comments, I found one person who said about Genesis 950. I had never heard of it before, however I had gone through virtually every cleaner at the pet store and nothing was working. I was about to give up and replace the carpet . . . I probably could have with everything I spent on cleaners.

The liver, similarly to the kidneys, is responsible for removing toxins from the body and helping it to digest food. Infections and diseases of the liver can produce high levels of ammonia in the urine and the accompanying pungent odor.
I have put together a list of the carpet cleaning machines that offers the best systems to  remove pet odour, handles very tough stains and has great features  that really help when you are cleaning up after your pet.
Pictured above is the brilliant gadget that will detect dried urine and those stains you just cannot see! It is an LED/UV Cat-Dog-Pet Urine Stain Blacklight Flashlight and is available at a big discount from Amazon.
As for the cons, I like many others wish it had another 5 feet of cord as I have a large open floor plan in my home. If you have more of a traditional type of home this will probably not be an issue for you as you will not need more cord length.
Soak up as much of the urine as possible: Place a thick layer of paper towels on the wet spot, and cover that with a thick layer of newspaper. If possible, put newspaper under the soiled area as well. Stand on this padding for about a minute, and repeat until the area is barely damp.
Use an air purifier. Trap stinky dander, fur, and other odor sources with an air purifier equipped with a HEPA filter. If you have allergies, this solution is doubly awesome, because these filters reduce dust and other allergens in the air.
I would like to thank you for this amazing remedy! I have two male dogs that were having a marking war in my living room and I like everyone else here had used countless products to get rid of the smell to no avail. The final straw was today when I cleaned my carpets and could smell nothing but the urine smell in that area. Then I looked up “natural home remedies for pet stains” and came up with your website. The solution of peroxide and dish detergent on top of the baking soda hasn’t even dried yet and my house smells WONDERFUL again. I will no longer be embarrassed to have people over to hang out!!
This is amazing! I felt like I had tried everything (including buying a steam cleaner) and not one thing I tried worked! Thank you so much for sharing! I was going crazy with the smell of Dog Urine Read all Testimonials

If you have a puppy, an elderly dog, or a dog still mastering their potty training skills, you’ve dealt with pee in the house. Depending on what surface they go on, and how long it sits before you find it, that stubborn dog pee smell can really stick around! But it doesn’t have to.
There is one flaw, however, which is that the same citrus smell that discourages your pets from reusing the area is created by orange oil. This is terrible for any kind of hardwood flooring and it’s not worth the risk as it can strip the finish.

Oh and by the way, in case you are one of the many people who walk into a room and ask,”can you smell something?”, when you know your dog or cat has peed but it’s already dried and there is nothing left but the odor – I am going to reveal how you can find the offending area of carpet or upholstery in seconds and get it dealt with, right away!
Bubba’s knows that our pets sometimes get in trouble, you know? And they’ve made this cleaner specifically to help you out when that stain and odor hits the floor. It’s even supposed to work with that worst of smells… cat urine.
1. Heavy. I know. I just said in #4 above that it was great it was heavy and don’t get me wrong, it is great and I wouldn’t change that fact, but that is just a con for some people who can’t do “heavy” for medical / physical reasons and I get that. I like the dry carpet more than I need a lightweight cleaner. Heavy duty motor sucks the water out, lightweight motor? Not so much. I had another Bissell about 13 years ago and it didn’t work worth a hoot. Ended up in the dumpster after a year. If weight is an issue for you, you may want to think about it.
Find previously soiled areas using a black light. If you have a persistent odor problem in a particular room, use a black light to illuminate all surfaces in the room. Urine will glow under black light, and once detected can be cleaned.
Enzymes are protein that help break up urine molecules and dissolve odors. Enzyme cleansers work, but they can take some time. You’ll spray or blot the area with cleaner, then let it sit for a while before blotting it up and scrubbing the spot. You may need to repeat this process.
Use only 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. Do not use Hydrogen Peroxide that is higher in concentrate than 3%  Bleaching may occur on some carpets with a stronger solution. Read the label on the Hydrogen Peroxide carefully. The label will state the strength.

The following is an overview of the ShippingPass Pilot subscription service. You should review the Terms & Conditions for a more detailed description as well as service limitations prior to signing up for ShippingPass.
Liver trouble can also result in urine that is musty smelling.14 Because your liver needs to break down urea in the body, if it malfunctions it causes excess buildup of ammonia. The ammonia passes out through your urine, causing that trademark foul smelling pee.15
The leading store-bought products made for removing the stain and smell of pet urine from carpets use the power of enzymes to do the work and are non-toxic for pets. Enzymes are proteins that help kick off natural chemical reactions at the molecular level, and the enzymes in pet carpet care products attach themselves to the molecules that make up the urine and bacteria that feed on it (producing the foul odors) and catalyze their breakdown.

My husband and I were thinking about taking him to ‘doggy school’, but then again, it’s extremely expensive, and the nearest ‘doggy school’ is far away from us. Maybe you have some advice? THANK YOU!!!!
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.
My cat peed on our couch while we were away even though we had a cat sitter. I tried the baking soda & vinegar solution with directons #2 and the smell is GONE! I’m so happy – the next test will be if cats do it again on our next trip! But at least we have something to clean it up with!
Some pets hate the smell of vinegar, even after it is has dried. Vinegar can also help to mask odor for your own nose, so a few drops of this over the affected area may help to deter future use by the pet.

Have your pet checked by a veterinarian to rule out medical causes for the accident. When you are certain your pet is healthy, use positive reinforcement to train yourcat or dog to eliminate in the proper place.
Fortunately, the budget cost doesn’t seem to have had too much of a hit to its efficacy. This stuff works. You’ll be able to handle most stains and odors simply, just spray it down, give it some time to work, and then finish the job.
Now, the one area where some people will have issues with this unit is that it isn’t the strongest in construction. It’s fine for the use of most people, but if you’re prone to hitting the fireplace or running it into things… well, you’re going to have a broken machine quickly.

If your home has pet odor problems, you’re in for one of the toughest odor removal projects known to man. That doesn’t mean you should give up hope. It just means that depending on the nature of the odor, and the material, this isn’t going to be an easy task.
I am so annoyed. upon moving a bed to another room I found three pee stains rather large under the bed smack dab in the middle of carpet. I tried three carpet cleaners and a toothbrush scrubbing allowing overnight soaking in. I tried three different at home carpet cleaner as well. When wet it looks like the stain is completely gone. But when fully dry stain reappears. Any suggestions? If I hire a commercial cleaner it will look great until it dries any help from anyone???
Try cleaning without detergent at first. If you find that you’re still not pulling up the stain, ask the representatives at the rental center what they recommend, and try to use as little detergent as possible.
Joe Truini: My friend Blackie here is a sweetie pie, but she tends to leave black fur all over the rug. In this case I even vacuumed the rug, but you still can’t get up all the fur, because it gets stuck down in the fibers.
Orange: When your pee is the color of a citrus-flavored soft drink, it’s probably because of meds like high-dose vitamin B2, the UTI drug phenazopyridine, or the antibiotic isoniazid. Depending on the color, it could also be a sign that you’re dehydrated or that there’s a problem with your liver or bile duct. You should ask your doctor about it.

Iodine is also used when you have a situation with dog pee smell on the wooden surfaces. The solution is prepared in the same way. If the odor remains after all your attempts maybe you should consider contacting drycleaner or cleaning professionals. Sometimes old pee smell is very difficult to remove.
The whole house has a faint kennel smell, even the morning after I wash all the throw rugs and mop all the floors (he’s too small to be marking furniture yet, so that’s not it) and her room positively reeks, but I can see no signs of missed accidents. His pen is made from old pallets, but it is just a two sided frame, and he is only in it when we are gone, so even if he has managed to pee on it, it shouldn’t smell THAT strongly, should it? If it could, can I fix it, or do I need to rebuild it with new, painted or varnished wood? What can I do?! I love cats, but won’t have them inside because I simply can’t stand that smell, so this is driving me crazy, like, no matter what I do, my house seems dirty! Help!!
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.
Step 4: Once the carpet is almost dry — which could be several hours later — sprinkle a little baking soda on the area to absorb the odor. Allow the baking soda to settle into the carpet fibers for about 15 minutes, then vacuum the area.
You can buy washable ones on different sizes off Amazon. I did this 5 yrs ago when we got out puppies an put them by out back door. Even though they go out right before we go to to bed, theres still times one or the other will pee on it 2 or 3 times a week late at night or of im gpne to long during the day. They’re 5yrs old now. I just wash one at a time with only vinegar an air dry while I put the other down. Well worth the $$
Then pour on Natures Miracle or The Simple Solution. (commercial products that can be purchased in most pet stores). Here is the trick, you must cover more than double the stained area when you pour on the product to ensure it soaks into the padding. Then walk away and allow to soak in and dry.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how to remove odor from hardwood floors? We have 3 shih-tzus and 2 of them are 8 years and do have accidents. One of them is very overweight and I’m starting to suspect possible diabetes. She is going to vet this week. The male will go when we leave sometimes. I believe he gets mad at us for leaving him!!! We also have a 5 year old male that WILL NOT go in the house unless he is sick. The big difference is my husband and I were both working when we got the 2 eight year olds as puppies. I was not working when we got the 5 yr old and he was potty trained in less than 2 weeks!!! Lesson learned!!!
Urine naturally has an odor that is unique to everyone. Urine doesn’t usually have a strong odor. You may notice that your urine occasionally has a stronger smell than it normally does. This isn’t always a cause for concern. Sometimes strong or… Read More
If pet accidents are a regular part of your life, invest in an at-home carpet cleaning machine like the Bissell Spotbot. The sooner you clean up the urine, the easier it will be to get that stubborn dog pee smell out.

Instead of purchasing expenses products, save your money and make yourself up a solution of rug cleaner in a spray bottle consisting of white vinegar and water (equal parts), dish washing liquid (a few drops). Have on hand hydrogen peroxide 3% – you can put on full strength as it’s already diluted. And some baking baking soda for later. You can also use SHOUT and Spray N Wash from your laundry room.
Some cleaning products work better than others depending on the type of carpet you have, such as natural versus synthetic fibers. Read the label on these products to find the one that can best remove dog or pet urine odor from carpet.
For most of us, budget will also figure in at some point but if you’re looking into making sure that you’ve actually got the best things possible you might want to ignore this factor. If your Great Dane has the amazing ability to urinate impossible, borderline equine amounts all over the floor it doesn’t make much sense to just go with the cheapest option
I have been told by an animal behaviorist about this product for ridding your carpet from pee odors and poop odors. The product is called Anti Icky Poo (lol). It is organic and environmentally safe to remove odors. It is avaible at some pet stores or online.
Absorb the mess. Use wet towels or paper towels, layered and topped by some kind of weight, to quickly absorb fresh puddles. Run the towels under cool water, then wring them out so they’re damp but not dripping. Place them over the stain completely and put something heavy on top, like cans of food, a pair of shoes, or a book. The moisture helps soak up the urine, while the weight presses the towels down into the carpet. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes.
Dealing with a urinary incontinence episode is never easy — but it can be especially difficult when the episode happens around other people. Dark clothing can help disguise wetness, but it won’t cover up odors. Fortunately, there are other ways to keep smells to a minimum.
Vacuum up loose debris from the area to be treated. Remove other debris by blotting the area with a wet towel.Soak treatment area with clean, warm water. Rinse the towel and soak up any excess water leaving the area damp.Pour OdorKlenz Pet Urine Eliminator on the prepared area.Spread the OdorKlenz Pet Urine Eliminator into the area gently working it into the carpet. Pour Freshwater over the treated area. Apply pressure to the area by standing or walking on it. Allow the formulation to have at least 10 minutes of contact time before removing.Use a clean absorbent towel to dry or soak up excess water. Allow to dry and vacuum up the visible residual.
Many of the cheaper cleaners simply won’t work on set in stains and odors. If that’s the case for you, then you’ll need to make sure that you get it with something strong, soak it, and leave it for a considerable period of time.
I wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for this pet urine odor remover solution. After many (failed) attempts at removing my dog’s pee odor from the carpet, with other pet products, I can honestly say that your method has become my go-to solution.  Read all Testimonials
Popular stain removal products often have lengthy labels telling about how they use “enzymes” to digest and break down stains and odors on a molecular level. It sounds mighty fancy, but with a little time and patience you can easily make your own.

what works for me….I have a a hoover steamvac carpet cleaner …so worth it… I soak up original area …poor vinegar solution over allow to sit then do the whole rugs with the cleaner and the solution you buy to go over it. Then I fill it with the vinegar mixture then add 100 percent pure essential oils (lemongrass, tea-tree,bergamot maybe 10 drops per gallon of each or just until im satisfied with smell) then i do the rugs with that mixture…the oils are antimicrobial, antibacterial,anti-fungal and anti viral…oh the antiseptic qualities among other things!!…it smells great..i will be adding the baking soda Thanks guys

Cloudy Urinary tract infection, kidney problem, metabolic problem, or chyluria (lymph fluid in the urine), phosphaturia (phosphate crystals), pituitary problem (ADH, or antidiuretic hormone) Consult physician, especially if you have pain or burning (dysuria), and/or frequent urination (polyuria), which are symptoms of UTI
Add a bit of bleach into the water (ratio of 1:10) and stir it. Apply the resulting mixture on the spot where your dog left some pee. In 20 minutes wash the whole surface or even the whole carpet with the water.
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.
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.
Hi Emily, great question! I recommend looking into crate training your dog. It’s not easy leaving your dog in a crate while you’re away, but it can help with training. Crate training has been proven to help dogs get potty trained. Check out the article and let me know if you have any questions, and good luck! https://www.caninejournal.com/crate-training-puppy/
Just purchased this yesterday and used it last night. I have a golden retriever and thankfully he doesn’t have accidents in the house.. However- he did recently throw up and when I cleaned it up i realized how dirty my carpets were. After using this, my carpets look brand new! I’m attaching a photo of the progress as well as one from the throw up stain before and after. Only downside I can think of is that the carpets were still a little damp the next morning. That could be our fault though. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a carpet cleaner.
I had this same problem with my elderly miniature poodle. The only thing that has worked is a mild sedative, Acepromazine, at bedtime and putting a diaper on her. I might have to keep a diaper on her 24/7 because even though I watch her almost continually she still urinates in the house occasionally. The night time solution came after consultation with her vet. I never tried putting her in a crate, beside the bed at night, this might work. Since your dog is young as compared to my 15 year old dog, I would try the crate thing first. Good luck!
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.
Orange Typically a sign of dehydration, showing up earlier than thirst; “holding your bladder” for too long; post-exercise; consuming orange foods (carrots, squash, or food dyes); the drug Pyridium (phenazopyridine); liver or pituitary problem (ADH, or antidiuretic hormone) Drink more water and don’t delay urination; consult physician if orange urine persists despite adequate hydration
People with incontinence tend to drink less liquid, causing their urine to become very concentrated and strong-smelling. Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day will dilute your urine and reduce or eliminate its odor.
You need to soak the affected area thoroughly, and allow the solution a long time to dry, whether you have carpet, wood floors, or masonry flooring. No fans or open windows are needed here. In fact, it’s a good idea to place a piece of cardboard over the affected area to slow down evaporation. The solution works to eat away at the natural enzymes that are causing the odor in the first place, and they need time to do their work. If after all this, you still have pet odor problems, you’re going to need to take more drastic measures. With carpeting, you’ll probably need to replace it. And if the pet urine has made it into the subfloor, you may have to replace that as well. The same goes for wood flooring. It can be a timely, and costly, project. But when compared to living with the smell of pet urine, it’s often worth the trouble.
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.
Another cause for musty smelling urine is phenylketonuria or PKU. This is a genetic condition that causes the buildup of phenylalanine, an amino acid that cannot be processed, in the blood and even your brain. As this buildup continues unchecked, it could cause brain damage and must, therefore, be treated as soon as possible. Behavioral problems like tantrums, having fairer eyes, hair, and skin than siblings who don’t have the problem, vomiting, eczema, epilepsy, tremors and musty smelling breath are other signs of this ailment.13
Clean or dispose of the towels. Because the towels you used for absorbing the urine will have faint traces of your pet’s scent, it’s important to keep your pet from marking them again. Help your pet avoid the temptation by discarding the towel.
Pee doesn’t usually have a strong smell. But some foods — especially asparagus, which has a smelly sulfur compound — can change the odor. So can vitamin B-6 supplements. When you’re dehydrated and your pee gets very concentrated, it can smell strongly of ammonia.
My cat Chancey a male never had a problem with urine till someone threw Smokey a female out of a window of a car and then I kept her; they say cats are territory and he is acting out you could say he is jealous;I clean the spot with peroxide dish soap and vinegar; when it is totally dry I then saturte the area with baking powder for 2 months and I cover the area with 2 garbage bags I leave the bags on if he pees again all you do is to wipe with paper towels ;and spray the mixture don’t smell a thing!
We have a Parrot in a cage on a big rubber mat. Carpet side face down on extra carpet for protection of regular carpet. We have two cats and a dog. We suspect the male cat is peeing on the mat by one of the wheels where the birds extra food falls. He has peed in certain areas of the house and on funiture before this due to a UTI. For which he had surgery for. Will any of these solutions help get rid of the ammonia odor like it does for carpeting? Any help will be appreciated.
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.

My neighbor can’t get her tiny yorkie trained so she stays in a fenced in area all the time and uses a disposable pad. I was using them too but when her dog visits (which is daily) she wasn’t using them, she would go all over the house. My sister told me she was started using large non disposable pads like the pads used in hospital beds. I tried it and both dogs are using it with no accidents. I just throw them in the washer with bleach. I think a little odor, that only the dogs smell, brings them back to it every time. They are very inexpensive and much cheaper than disposables.
Green RARE: Unusual UTIs and certain foods (such as asparagus); excessive vitamins Usually benign; consult your physician if it persists, especially if you have pain or burning (dysuria), and/or frequent urination (polyuria), which are symptoms of UTI

Well, the urine actually seeps right on down through the carpet, the pad, and into the floor sheathing (if you have that) where it stinks for a long time, and where the only remedy is, after the pee dries, to paint it over with a heavy coat of Kiltz or rip up the sheathing and replace it. It also spreads out over the floor slab (if you have that) and remains for a long time. Animals return to spots in your home that you don’t know about and relieve themselves again. The stink reduces your real estate value by $$$$.
Instead of purchasing expenses products, save your money and make yourself up a solution of rug cleaner in a spray bottle consisting of white vinegar and water (equal parts), dish washing liquid (a few drops).

If you’re not willing to do all of the research to make sure you get the perfect pick for your own home and needs… this BISSELL DeepClean Lift-Off might be exactly the ticket and it’s sure not to disappoint if paired with the right shampoo.

urine can penetrate the face fibers,also the backing which is plastic.sometimes with a big pet it can reach down to the pad and the subfloor wood or concrete.first pull carpet off of tack strip check to see if urine has gone into the plastic or back of carpet.if you see or smell it there but not in padding or concrete then apply a enzyme treatment to it and extract the urine with a extractor.flip carpet back down onto tack strips and apply to fibers on top carpet rinse with extractor.dry carpet with high speed air mover.if the urine soaks padding remove and discard.apply enzyme to subfloor clean and extract and dry out
Please don’t keep a pit outdoors. They need their people. You can use a puppy pad and train her to use it. I use adult human incontinence pads – the extra large size for my dog. They’re cheaper than the specialty dog ones. The other option is to check out eBay or Amazon for doggie diapers. They come in a disposable type and various cloth versions where you put a pad in it. The pet stores carry them, too, but they’re more expensive. Keep your dog sleeping beside you.
If you go to a horse store, you can get some stall neutralizer that works for the rocks. I live in the desert and so I really do not have grass. I sprinkle this every so often and it helps immensely. It will come in a 40 lb bag and it is safe for pets.
Smelly urine have you in search of its cause? Abnormal smell and/or color of your urine can be caused by an array of factors. Urine excreted by an otherwise hydrated healthy person does not usually have a strong smelly odor and its appearance is straw-like in color.
Is your dog still going on the floor? Getting dog urine out of your carpet doesn’t have to be hard, but you’ll need to act quickly. Dog urine that is allowed to dry will not only stain the carpet, but will make it easier for harmful bacteria to start multiplying. The following are ways to get dog urine odor out of the carpet to prevent future repeat incidents.
Iodine is also used when you have a situation with dog pee smell on the wooden surfaces. The solution is prepared in the same way. If the odor remains after all your attempts maybe you should consider contacting drycleaner or cleaning professionals. Sometimes old pee smell is very difficult to remove.
When you take her outside to pee, try to train her to pee on command. When she does pee outside, lots of praise, lots of treats, lots of love, make the act of peeing outside the most magical thing ever.
I am so annoyed. upon moving a bed to another room I found three pee stains rather large under the bed smack dab in the middle of carpet. I tried three carpet cleaners and a toothbrush scrubbing allowing overnight soaking in. I tried three different at home carpet cleaner as well. When wet it looks like the stain is completely gone. But when fully dry stain reappears. Any suggestions? If I hire a commercial cleaner it will look great until it dries any help from anyone???

Try cleaning without detergent at first. If you find that you’re still not pulling up the stain, ask the representatives at the rental center what they recommend, and try to use as little detergent as possible.
I have two toddlers. Enough said! lol. I used to grab a wet rag to clean stuff up- which doesn’t work well on carpet or our chairs! One of our chairs (PICTURED) was actually SO BAD that it was crusty and about 15 shades darker than its original color (from spilled juice, snacks, etc.)!! After cleaning it with the Bissel Pro-heat (Pet), which took about 10 minutes, it was back to its original color and looks brand new! It also took out some stains on our carpet that we thought would never come out! Needless to say, we don’t regret buying this, especially at a great price! Very easy to use and set up. We have recommended it to our in-laws and they love it as well.
Rocco & Roxie’s Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator lives up to its name. This efficacious liquid will quickly and easily remove odors, but where it really shines is in handling those super hard stains.
The first step is the most obvious. Clean any affected areas as thoroughly as possible. That doesn’t mean a quick vacuum or running over your hardwood with a Swiffer. Pet odor removal is only effective if you give affected areas a good, deep cleaning. Scrub and mop hard surfaces as thoroughly as possible, and think about using a vinegar or baking soda solution as you do so. Both are rumored to work wonders when it comes to removing pet smells. And if you’re dealing with pet odor removal from carpeting, hire a professional. Make sure they use the hot water extraction method (also known as “steam cleaning”), since it provides the deepest clean, and ask if they use a truck mounted unit. These units do a much better job of getting down into the carpet pile, where much of the pet smell resides, than other professional carpet cleaning techniques, or any homeowner operated unit you can rent.
Finally, if you do want to use a perfumed product to help neutralize the smell, make sure that it is non-toxic to animals. Many products that are safe for humans are not always safe for dogs. Some home air fresheners – sprays, plug-ins and scented oils – can be harmful to a pet’s health, so when in doubt, just stick with the tried and true baking soda solution.
Next weekend, I am tackling the stairs… Will amend the review to reflect the “stair” tool as well as the “hard floor” tool that I ordered from Bissell for use on my ceramic tile floor which should come next week as well. 🙂
I have used Listerine on all kinds of surfaces with absolutely no ill effects. I keep a spray bottle of it on hand to use as a way of keeping my cats away from areas where I don’t want them. It can be lightly sprayed on furniture, carpet, drapes, hardwood floors and just about anything else with no problems. It is more effective as a fabric freshener than Febreze and other products of that nature. In a fine mist bottle, it makes a good air freshener. It is much better used this way than in your mouth! LOL! 😀
The most important factor in the overall health of your urinary tract is drinking plenty of pure, fresh water every day. Inadequate hydration is the number one risk factor for kidney stones, as well as being important for preventing UTIs. To avoid overly frequent bathroom breaks, stay hydrated but not overhydrated. Drink whenever you’re thirsty, but don’t feel you have to drink eight glasses of water per day, every day. If you’re getting up during the night to pee, stop drinking three to four hours before bedtime.
Just wanted to follow up with you about the clean smelling carpet in the stairway! …the carpet looks newer and is odor-free! Thank you… it has made a huge difference in the quality of life in the living room
I do hope you have success in resolving your problem – I am in the UK and we have the NCCA here (National Carpet Cleaners’ Association) – but if you are in the USA, you could try contacting the trade association for professional carpet cleaners in your area to see if you were given bad advice by the carpet cleaner who steam cleaned your floor. He was evidently aware of the dog urine problem as soon as he arrived to clean your carpet. If this is the case and he belongs to a professional body, you may have some comeback about this.
There is also one trick which can helpful if you want to prevent repetition of the odor problem. If your dog is constantly peeing in the place you can sprinkle few drops of essential oil of apple, cinnamon or eucalyptus. This pleasant for human smell dogs do not like at all.
I had come on here to find a way to remove pet stains. After reading through the comments, I found one person who said about Genesis 950. I had never heard of it before, however I had gone through virtually every cleaner at the pet store and nothing was working. I was about to give up and replace the carpet . . . I probably could have with everything I spent on cleaners.
I have a very sensitive nose, so just covering up a smell wasn’t good enough for me. I wanted it GONE! Finally, in desperation, I searched for severe urine removal, and the SUN products popped up. I figured, I’ve tried everything else, what the heck? I ordered it, tried it on a single spot, and almost cried in my relief. This stuff WORKS! Truly works. It does leave behind a pleasant mild scent so I gave it a few days before I was really convinced that it wasn’t just masking the odor. I think what I really was impressed with is when I sprayed it on (I diluted in a spray bottle for convenience), I could see where it would react with the urine. It made it easy to find a spot if I wasn’t really sure where it was. I would spray an area and the spots that had a reaction (it kind of foams a little) I would concentrate on.

This information refers to the general prevalence and incidence of these diseases, not to how likely they are to be the actual cause of Urine odor. Of the 12 causes of Urine odor that we have listed, we have the following prevalence/incidence information:
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.
Even the brushes on this design are made to make sure that smells and stains get gone and stay gone. The biggest thing that keeps it from being our main pick, however, is the fact that it’s not a 2-in-1, so you’ll only be able to use it as an upright.

“After seventeen years experience in the cleaning business, I have found OdorKlenz treatment effectiveness’ far beyond normal chemical process capabilities currently available to the professional carpet cleaning industry.”
Quick question for you – do you have a recommendation for an odor removing recipe that can be used in a carpet shampoo vacuum? I do not want to buy a regular shampoo from the store as my vet told me it does not remove the urine smell and that animals will still be attracted and potty on the carpet as long as I use a regular shampoo.
Urine is the body’s liquid waste. It is made by the kidneys, which filters toxins out of the blood. It contains water, salt, urea, and uric acid. Urea is expelled in the form of sweat through the body, while uric acid is the result of urine metabolism.
This tool is universal and helps to remove the stain and odor of dogs pee. The most effective way is to buy the cheapest soap which does not have any additives or added smells. The best effect can be achieved if the soap is used immediately on the fresh dog pee. Soap is also one of the best removals of bacteria and dirt from the textile surfaces.
If your specific issue is trying to remove pet urine odor, you’re in for another treat altogether. Pet urine odor is one of the most difficult smells to remove from any surface, and at times requires you remove the flooring altogether, and replace it, if none of the less substantial solutions do the trick. Still, it can be done. Here’s how.
Look, we all know that dog urine can be problematic. Even in the best of cases, when it’s noticed instantly, it has a tendency to seep into carpeting and sometimes under flooring. This leads to lasting odors in many cases, even where you’ve handled the stains super efficiently.
There’s a common theme in anything which we use to handle our pets: a high cost. With Out!’s Pet Stain and Odor Remover you might just be able to handle the problem without making a super serious investment.

Thank you so much for the pet stain and odor remover. I have 3 dogs, 2 are seniors and are prone to accidents now. I have a questions for you. Do you know of anything that helps toe nail fungal infections. I has caused my nails to thicken and are very uncomfortable.
You can buy washable ones on different sizes off Amazon. I did this 5 yrs ago when we got out puppies an put them by out back door. Even though they go out right before we go to to bed, theres still times one or the other will pee on it 2 or 3 times a week late at night or of im gpne to long during the day. They’re 5yrs old now. I just wash one at a time with only vinegar an air dry while I put the other down. Well worth the $$
The Bissell Big Green is probably the most effective carpet cleaner we have reviewed. It has a large following amongst pet owners because of its extremely efficient cleaning of pet urine, pet vomit and pet stains.
If you can still smell the odor once the area is dry, you may have to repeat the process – which is a bit of a pain, but is still the best method for how to get pet urine smell out of carpet in your home.
According to research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, urinary tract infections or UTIs are the most common bacterial infections worldwide, affecting up to 150 million people each year.
If you suspect you have a urinary tract problem, you should consult your physician. One of the first things he or she is likely to do is a urine test. Urine tests have been around for more than 6,000 years1 and are easy, noninvasive tools for quickly assessing your health status2.
My dog had an accident in the bedroom so I pulled back the carpet cut out the underlay washed it thoroughly with normal washing detergent bleached the floorboards then laid a bin bag on the floorboards with some kitchen towels on top I placed the carpet back down and rinsed the carpet through with warm water and washing detergent replacing the towels as i went along until they were clear and the urine had gone after scrubbing and soaking up the water the smell has now gone the underlay is back down with the carpet and there is no stain or smell in sight
There is one flaw, however, which is that the same citrus smell that discourages your pets from reusing the area is created by orange oil. This is terrible for any kind of hardwood flooring and it’s not worth the risk as it can strip the finish.

Being infected will not make you more immune or extra resistant to a future infection. Multiple sex partners increase your risk of these infections; a long-term monogamous relationship with a partner who has tested negative will go a long way in helping prevent these infections — and thus, a fishy smell “coming” from your urine.
I foster dogs in addition to owning two of my own, so I have a lot of pups going through my house. Since they’re rescues and often times come from places where they haven’t even started on potty training, I have a lot of accidents in my house. And I do mean a lot. Pretty much everything you could imagine that could come out of either end of dog has probably ended up on my carpet at some point or another. Come spring time my backyard also turns into a mud pit, and I have dogs tearing in from the backyard tracking who knows what all over the place. In short, stain removers are a must at my house, and not only do they have to get the stain, but the smell as well. Unfortunately, it took me awhile to catch on to the fact that I could make my own and that they would work just as well as the dozen or so other expensive cleaners I’d tried before. Mud, blood, number 1 or number 2, here are 3 natural DIY solutions to keeping up on pet stains and odors.
It’s a good idea to wait until the cleaner is on sale – we have a Vax cleaner which dries the carpet as well – you can use detergent, then a rinse and then do ‘dry’ passes until you are happy that as much water as possible has been removed. We have had this machine for some years and have found it very good.
Apply another towel and absorb the cleaner. After soaking the spot with cleaning, follow the same procedure as with the first absorbing, and put a fresh towel over the enzymatic cleaner to absorb it and thoroughly cleanse the area. Weight the towel with a heavy object and leave it alone.

Yikes! I once had a foster that someone had fed a very bright red biscuit to…needless to say, I feel your pain. You can try just making a plain baking soda paste with some warm water, gently rubbing it into the stain (after any solids are gone and all traces liquid soaked up) and letting it sit for 15 minutes or longer, then follow with the vinegar rinse. If you haven’t try the above methods as well. I have found with throw up that it’s easy to overlook the fluid part and not soak it all up, which can really contribute to the stain, so I do whatever I have to to absorb it all before doing anything. Is it possible to switch your cats food at all? Are they throwing up directly after meals? If it’s right after meals, kitty may be gulping their food. They could also have issues with hairballs that cause vomiting. Well there’s quite a few reason they throw up really, but either way, I hope this helped some.
The OdorKlenz pet urine eliminator is your number one source for safe and effective urine and pet odor removal.The carpeting and flooring in your home often fall victim to pet accidents that need to be tended to quickly. Most urine odor eliminating products are primarily designed to focus on one aspect or chemistry of the urine odor problem, often just masking the urine odor, with perfumes and fragrances but the best way to attack an odor source is to have a product that can work via multiple pathways to achieve odor neutralization. OdorKlenz Pet Urine Eliminator is ideal for use on carpets and rugs where pet accidents have occurred. Use with an extractor or let it dry, then brush and vacuum it out. For liquid and vomit, spills try our OdorKlenz Absorbent.
Joe Truini: My friend Blackie here is a sweetie pie, but she tends to leave black fur all over the rug. In this case I even vacuumed the rug, but you still can’t get up all the fur, because it gets stuck down in the fibers.
If you have the budget for it, the best carpet cleaner for pets and pet stains right now is the Bissell Big Green, with its  superior cleaning power and deep cleaning . We will update this list as we review new carpet cleaning machines, but my guess is that this list will stand for a long time.
Hi I saw your post about kitty having trouble keeping dinner down. We have three cats and our princess Madeleine had this issue. She is also 12. She had always been fine (our babies eat supercoat and dine) but as she got older her stomach got more sensitive. The only thing we’ve had luck with is kitty soup. Done and fancy feast make it. She loves it, has put a little weight on and keeps it down 🙂 hope it helps
Open windows. There’s nothing like some nice, fresh breeze to air out bad smells. In spring, summer, and fall, open windows throughout the house to create a breeze that will blow fresh air in one window and bad smells out the other.[9]
I was very ill for a while and could not take my pet girl out as often as usual. She started peeing on the doormat which is just inside the front door on top of the wooden flooring.. I threw the mat out and followed the vinegar/bicarb hints but still the odour persisted and much worse when the central heating is on..I have an oriental type rug runner in the hall and I do not want her to start using this to pee on!!
If you find that your pup is peeing a lot inside of the crate then there is very likely a medical problem. Some dogs – females especially – just have weak bladders, too. So that’s always a factor. That’s really hard to deal with, but sometimes medication from veterinarians can help.
For the bed, you might want to do this in the morning so that you can clean and remake the bed at the end of the day. Follow up by vacuuming all of the baking soda from the bed, carpet and furnishings and returning the bed linens and cushion covers or slipcovers to the furniture.

Considering a carpet cleaner? Check out our full carpet cleaner ratings and read “5 Things to Know Before Buying a Carpet Cleaner.” Here are five picks from our tests, as well as two you may want to skip.
There are some smaller attachments, but these aren’t all that specialized and you may have to do some maintenance if you don’t decide to utilize something smaller in those areas where there’s a ton of pet hair gathered. You’ll be better off with a small vacuum in those situations.
It can be used in conjunction with a carpet cleaning machine, but we suggest direct application of the product to the carpet, then use the carpet cleaning machine to extract it from the carpet. This allows for better and longer contact time between the source and the OdorKlenz product.
There’s no need to rinse or blot the enzymatic cleaner, you simply let it do its work, dissolve and dry. The length of time required depends on what version of cleaner you buy. Some require 24 hours, while serious stains may take up to two weeks to completely dissolve the smell and stain. Sometimes the smell gets worse before it gets better, so don’t be discouraged. In the store, look for the version of carpet cleaner that’s formulated especially for pet urine removal and is available in liquid or powder formula.
I just recently bought a Bissell ProHeat 2X® Steam Cleaner as we have an 8 month old Boxer that still has accidents.. With the steam cleaner I used Bissell 2X Pet Stain & Odor Formula.. For the smaller areas where she still has some tiny accidents I have used Bissell Pet Stain & Odor Remover – Spray, I’m very sensitive to smells (not like an animal though ) and I have been unable to smell the urine since using these products. I have also noticed when she has another “accident” it’s not in the area I have cleaned, it will be in a new area..
White vinegar is a miraculous substance that will get rid of even the old accident stains that might have been missed if a dog did a “ninja-pee” behind the bookshelves or something. Baking soda is nature’s odor remover, and teamed up with vinegar, does a great job at getting rid of odors!
Foul-smelling urine may be due to bacteria. Sweet-smelling urine may be a sign of uncontrolled diabetes or a rare disease of metabolism. Liver disease and certain metabolic disorders may cause musty-smelling urine.
Urine color (401 causes), Dark urine (99 causes), Red urine (58 causes), Urine symptoms (630 causes), Clear urine (5 causes), Asparagus, Cystitis, Diabetes (212 causes), Diabetic ketoacidosis (34 causes), Urinary tract infections (child), Vitamin B6 supplements
Full sized cleaners can be something of a bear to handle. This makes them less ideal for those who aren’t quite as physically fit and also makes them harder to use in particularly tight environments. For a small apartment, inhabited by a smaller person, it doesn’t make sense and instead, you’ll want to focus on more pet oriented applications.

If ammonia-smelling urine occurs every once in a while, it is rarely a reason for concern. However, if ammonia odor is accompanied by pain or symptoms of infection, including fever, it is time to see a doctor.

Smelly urine have you in search of its cause? Abnormal smell and/or color of your urine can be caused by an array of factors. Urine excreted by an otherwise hydrated healthy person does not usually have a strong smelly odor and its appearance is straw-like in color.

I had read mixed reviews regarding this carpet cleaner leaving “clumps” of hair/fur all over the rug, some people saying that it was due to it being so powerful that it pulls up hair that has been missed with a not so powerful vacuum cleaner, and others stating that its suction isn’t powerful enough thus the clumps!
I foster dogs in addition to owning two of my own, so I have a lot of pups going through my house. Since they’re rescues and often times come from places where they haven’t even started on potty training, I have a lot of accidents in my house. And I do mean a lot. Pretty much everything you could imagine that could come out of either end of dog has probably ended up on my carpet at some point or another. Come spring time my backyard also turns into a mud pit, and I have dogs tearing in from the backyard tracking who knows what all over the place. In short, stain removers are a must at my house, and not only do they have to get the stain, but the smell as well. Unfortunately, it took me awhile to catch on to the fact that I could make my own and that they would work just as well as the dozen or so other expensive cleaners I’d tried before. Mud, blood, number 1 or number 2, here are 3 natural DIY solutions to keeping up on pet stains and odors.
Ammonia has a powerful smell dogs dislike. However, the smell of ammonia is similar to the dog urine smell you want to cover, so you might want to save this solution if all others fail. Dilute the ammonia with water and spray it over the carpets.
Nature’s Miracle, which can be bought at most large pet stores—at some in gallon containers with a battery-operated sprayer, although that’s not necessary. We have lived with cats for decades, and this is the only material that is always successful in removing odors. We have not had real problems with our cats, but all you need is one to make a house smell terrible. Nature’s Miracle also works well in the washing machine—just add a bit in the pre-rinse.
This thing will clean your carpet – no doubt about that – especially if you use the Bissell chemicals with it – but some really annoying things that you find out while you’re using it. (1) The solution tank cannot stand up by itself as it has no flat side on the opposite side of the inlet. You cannot put the tank down after putting any liquid in it as it will spill. Ya, really. (2) 1 hole on the plastic body is too small for the screw. You can try to tighten it but you risk cracking the plastic housing or stripping the screw head or both. (3) It should take nothing to add a mechanism that lifts up the brushes off the floor when using the attachments. I wound up with a burn spot on my carpet due to the brushes continuously hitting the same spot for about 10 minutes while cleaning the stairs. (4) The water is supposed to be heated, but I checked it with my hand and could not tell the difference from when I first put it in. This is an OK machine that could be a terrific machine with just a couple of tweaks.
As for the cons, I like many others wish it had another 5 feet of cord as I have a large open floor plan in my home. If you have more of a traditional type of home this will probably not be an issue for you as you will not need more cord length.

If your cat urinates outside the box and has no health issues that are causing it then it has territorial issues. Make an area the “cat’s area” and don’t allow other pets to relax or hang out in “her special area”. She is marking a lot to mark it as hers, she feels she has no space of her own. Trust me, I’ve had cats for almost 50 years and I did not think the territory idea would work but it did. I saw it on Cat Whisperer show.
Put a washable cover on furniture. Your pet may have proudly claimed an armchair or a spot on the couch as their own. This special space, or any other furniture where your pet lounges, will need frequent washing to keep the odors at bay. If your pets spend a lot of time on your furniture, it’s a good idea to invest in washable covers like slip covers. That way, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of vacuuming and scrubbing your furniture. Instead, just throw the cover in the wash.
urine can penetrate the face fibers,also the backing which is plastic.sometimes with a big pet it can reach down to the pad and the subfloor wood or concrete.first pull carpet off of tack strip check to see if urine has gone into the plastic or back of carpet.if you see or smell it there but not in padding or concrete then apply a enzyme treatment to it and extract the urine with a extractor.flip carpet back down onto tack strips and apply to fibers on top carpet rinse with extractor.dry carpet with high speed air mover.if the urine soaks padding remove and discard.apply enzyme to subfloor clean and extract and dry out
I have a term for some of my fosters-“ninja pee-er.” These are the pups that somehow manage to sneak off and go potty in a hidden corner and I have a lovely surprise several days later when the stain has set! Even though you haven’t seen any signs of missed accidents, I would suggest checking *meticulously* over any rugs/carpeting for spots you may have missed that set in. Even in corners, behind bookcases, and under beds (or on them!) Where the ninja pee-er strikes, they will strike again, and everything can just compound if you’re missing it.
Pink, red, or smoky brown urine is also signs of a urinary tract disorder such as cystitis, enlarged prostate, kidney cancer, bladder tumor, tuberculosis, kidney stones, kidney infection, or a trauma to your kidneys or urinary tract.
The whole house has a faint kennel smell, even the morning after I wash all the throw rugs and mop all the floors (he’s too small to be marking furniture yet, so that’s not it) and her room positively reeks, but I can see no signs of missed accidents. His pen is made from old pallets, but it is just a two sided frame, and he is only in it when we are gone, so even if he has managed to pee on it, it shouldn’t smell THAT strongly, should it? If it could, can I fix it, or do I need to rebuild it with new, painted or varnished wood? What can I do?! I love cats, but won’t have them inside because I simply can’t stand that smell, so this is driving me crazy, like, no matter what I do, my house seems dirty! Help!!
I have been removing pet urine and human urine professionally for 27 years with industrial strength hydrogen peroxide. we use 30% H202. you can buy 20 volume or 40 volume clear developer from a beauty supply co. this is peroxide used in bleaching hair. or buy strong peroxide from a pool store. only use on synthetic fibers, saturate carpet and pad, let dry 24 hrs. do not touch with skin til dry, shoes ok. keep pets off spot til dry. if you touch chemical wash immediately, rinse eyes for 15 minutes if contaminated, skin turns white and burns for 15 minutes after washing. the oxygen radicals will neutralize the urea, the odor,and kill the bacteria. it does not need to be rinsed. also works on red wine, blood, coffee, and mold. this is a trade secret. use enough strong peroxide it works every time.

We did our research to help you not give up hope! You don’t have to live with the smell of dog urine, get rid of that dog pee on carpet today.
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 tape. When you’ve found all the stains you want to clean up, go back with your cleaning materials and find your stains easily.
In recent years, there’s been quite a market for this kind of cleaning product. A lot of people tend to think of these two problems as separate sides of the same coin but they can actually be handled quite well with a single solution if you’re careful about your selection.
I just recently bought a Bissell ProHeat 2X® Steam Cleaner as we have an 8 month old Boxer that still has accidents.. With the steam cleaner I used Bissell 2X Pet Stain & Odor Formula.. For the smaller areas where she still has some tiny accidents I have used Bissell Pet Stain & Odor Remover – Spray, I’m very sensitive to smells (not like an animal though ) and I have been unable to smell the urine since using these products. I have also noticed when she has another “accident” it’s not in the area I have cleaned, it will be in a new area..
Nothing works. Dried stains are bad, we wash them and stink is still there. Wet stains are more manageable, I do the paper towel trick then soak with the stain remover. But dried ones went thru the entire carpet and even thru the wood under carpet (how do I know? Replaced carpet once, the wood underneath was soaked with the stinker’s urine), so I have the smell all the time, just waiting my dog will pass away as she is very old and sick, and then we will put the hard wood. In the mean time, professional cleaning doesn not help, vet vaccuum that we own, does not help either. I am frustrated.

Tip: The Humane Society urges you NOT to use heavy cleaning chemicals, like ammonia or vinegar. They actually don’t remove the odor, and the strong scent of the chemicals may entice your dog to mark “his” area again (learn more about why dogs mark their territory).
Important. Never use ammonia or ammonia-based products on the carpet to remove pet pee. One of the ingredients of urine is ammonia and your dog or puppy may well be encouraged to re-offend in the same area if it detects the smell of ammonia. Many household cleaner cleaners contain ammonia so be sure to read the label.
What you are smelling may just be her natural dog odor once the shampoo’s fragrance has worn off. If it smells like it’s something else, try to figure out if she is getting into something that gives her that smell.
Start off with feeding a good brand of food from a pet store,and not a commercially advertised cheap product from grocery stores(cheap ones are brightly colored and high in cheap fillers which are dangerous for your pet and could, lead to health problems one day), or feed raw (best solution) after that all of the things listed in this will work for smell/stain remover. I have used it for both three cats and three dogs ad works wonders.
anything with enzymes will work in a spray bottle also , i have same issue ! going to have to replace carpet and not sure what to put back down ! have you tried some pee pads ? just lay a couple down at night !
For linens, blankets and cushion covers, add a ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar to any oxy-powered detergent powder, such as boric acid, and launder as usual. Also, leaving a deep glass dish of white vinegar standing in a room with an offensive odor usually takes the odor out of the air.
Try this super product from Nature’s Miracle that contains no phosphates and is designed for use with any brand of machine you have for cleaning your rugs and carpets, provided that it is of the water-based type.
As not only the carpet but also the floor can become smelly when you have pets, it might be a good idea to purchase a steam mop. By using steam and fragrance discs together you can eliminate the odour on the floor as well.
It is great if you noticed the puddle immediately and started to clean up. But what should we do if the carpet is already dry and we need to get rid of dog pee smell? We should mix one cup of hydrogen peroxide with 1 tablespoon of dishwashing soap. Using the brush wash the spot properly. It is better to wash even a bit bigger surface than the spot itself.
We have an apartment also and I’ve wondered about what they’re going to do with this carpet when we move out, because our pet deposit is too small to be enough to replace all the carpet… BUT we do use baking soda/vinegar mixture on it to clean then vinegar sprayed on top out of a spray bottle. Seems to work well, and she doesn’t go to the same spots every time, it seems pretty random.

We have experienced dog urine stains and odor in carpets and have found most commercial cleaners are ineffective. In addition, most carpet cleaning companies are unable to remove the odor. We had one company that had to clean and treat the flooring under the carpet in order to eliminate the odor under the carpet. We are trying the vinegar solution as a last resort for an area rug that the carpet cleaning company was unsuccessful at deodorizing.
One of the nice things about this product is that it has Scotchguard built right into it, meaning that you get the cleaning and odor removal followed by a protective layer that will stay in place on the offending rug.
Pee is your body’s liquid waste, mainly made of water, salt, and chemicals called urea and uric acid. Your kidneys make it when they filter toxins and other bad stuff from your blood. A bunch of things in your body, like medications, foods, and illnesses, can affect how yours turns out.

Clean old pet messes with an enzyme cleaner. Hidden or improperly cleaned messes are often the culprits behind pet odor. If there are areas where there have been recent pet messes, spray the area with an enzyme cleaner. Let the cleaner soak in for 30 minutes, and then blot it dry with a clean cloth. You may find that the pesky pet odor has disappeared.
Being infected will not make you more immune or extra resistant to a future infection. Multiple sex partners increase your risk of these infections; a long-term monogamous relationship with a partner who has tested negative will go a long way in helping prevent these infections — and thus, a fishy smell “coming” from your urine.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and bladder infections sometimes warrant urgent medical attention so you should be alert to symptoms. Besides foul smelling urine, other signs of a UTI are that you may feel the need to urinate more often, have sudden urges to pee, feel like the bladder isn’t fully empty even after you have peed, have a pain in your lower abdomen, and generally experience aches and tiredness. If you have back pain, fever, chills, or a burning pain when you pee, you should rush to your doctor at the earliest.5
I’ve been using the vinegar/water mix for years to rid the carpet of pet odors. It’s always worked well for me. I like the baking soda suggestion and if I get in a position where V/W doesn’t work, I’ll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestions Angie’s!
It is also a good idea to empty the bladder completely when urinating, to avoid remnants of urine dripping on to clothing. Wiping well and rinsing with water, if needed, after urinating can also minimize the bacteria that cause infections and ammonia-smelling urine.
How to get dog urine smell out of carpet from my experience. We have Resolve for pet stains and odors. We were with our dog when she had her accident inside so we were able to act fast. We blotted the area with a rag to try and pick up as much urine as possible, then sprayed the area and let it set in for a while. Then scrubbed really well and we haven’t noticed a smell or any stain.
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.)
There is also one trick which can helpful if you want to prevent repetition of the odor problem. If your dog is constantly peeing in the place you can sprinkle few drops of essential oil of apple, cinnamon or eucalyptus. This pleasant for human smell dogs do not like at all.
That’s a great question Gary. Regarding how to remove dog urine from carpet that has set in, we recommend the same products and techniques. People really rave about Nature’s Miracle and some members of our team have used it as well. We’ve read that it performs well for urine that has dried up, so I would recommend purchasing it and seeing how it works. Best of luck!
Urine does not usually have a strong odor to it. However, occasionally, it will have a pungent smell of ammonia. One explanation for an ammonia odor is high amounts of waste in the urine. But certain foods, dehydration, and infections are also possible.

Full sized cleaners can be something of a bear to handle. This makes them less ideal for those who aren’t quite as physically fit and also makes them harder to use in particularly tight environments. For a small apartment, inhabited by a smaller person, it doesn’t make sense and instead, you’ll want to focus on more pet oriented applications.
3. The “hair trap” (a small red square “tray”) doesn’t work so well. Is it a big deal? I don’t know. It may be for some. It is a hassle to have to scoop hairs off the top of the bladder when you are going to reuse it right away rather than just emptying the little trap. Does it affect performance? It hasn’t so far that I know of. I know that it is more hassle to clean the tank with loose hair in the tank and stuck to the bladder. You have to watch it going down your drain so you aren’t dumping pet hair and carpet fuzzies down the drain. It just means that I have to lift the bladder that holds the soap/clean water and shift it when I rinse when I am cleaning it to put it away. I don’t know if that means it gets into any part of the machine’s motor or not though. Someone more technical than me can possibly answer that question.
Use the baking soda and vinegar method. Spray the area with vinegar, then sprinkle on enough baking soda to thinly coat the area of the stain. Cover the stain with a towel for 24 hours, then wash the area thoroughly with cold water. This mixture should absorb the stain and cleanse the area thoroughly, and cheaply.

If pet accidents are a regular part of your life, invest in an at-home carpet cleaning machine like the Bissell Spotbot. The sooner you clean up the urine, the easier it will be to get that stubborn dog pee smell out.
I ran into a problem with my one dog going pee in the house and I knew something was wrong because I let her out every hour. So I ended up taking a urine sample to the vet and she had crystals in her urine which causes great pain in their bladder. The vet said it was like little pieces of glass in her bladder. I am treating her with Crananidin and Cosequin every other day because when so took it every day her poop was like soft serve ice cream. Works great no more pee in the house. Consult you vet for proper dosage. Nutramax pharm.
Be warned, you may want to not be as vocal as I was when I was so impressed with the results that this cleaner had produced. It cleaned so well that I told my ENTIRE extended family and now everyone wants to try (borrow) mine, grrrr…. I’m literally having to organize a schedule so I can get it back in time to clean our rugs as I want to clean them at least twice a month so they do not get as bad as they were EVER again! I told everyone that I want it to come back with a “FULL TANK” LOL *meaning I want a FULL container of cleaning solution when it finally gets back to me! 😉
Oh and by the way, in case you are one of the many people who walk into a room and ask,”can you smell something?”, when you know your dog or cat has peed but it’s already dried and there is nothing left but the odor – I am going to reveal how you can find the offending area of carpet or upholstery in seconds and get it dealt with, right away!
One of the nice things about this product is that it has Scotchguard built right into it, meaning that you get the cleaning and odor removal followed by a protective layer that will stay in place on the offending rug.

The citrus scent is nice and easy on the nose and will also discourage all but the most stubborn pets from reusing the area. We all know the pain of having to repeatedly clean the same area and any kind of discouragement from continuing this process unabated is good for both us and our pets.
But at just over 5 feet, the hose is average-length. This model might fit the bill if you have a smaller space in a one-story house; it can cover only 15 square feet on one full tank of solution.

Urine is 95 percent water and five percent urea, uric acid, minerals, salts, enzymes, and various substances that would cause problems if allowed to accumulate in your body4. Normal urine is clear and has a straw yellow color, caused by a bile pigment called urobilin.
Sophia: I really need to do something about this problem in the house we just moved into 3 weeks ago. Before we moved into this house we had the entire carpet professionally steam cleaned. The carpet cleaner could smell dog urine as soon as he came into the house (it was a rainy day). It has been three weeks and we still smell it in a couple of the rooms.
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.
Pink, red, or smoky brown urine is also signs of a urinary tract disorder such as cystitis, enlarged prostate, kidney cancer, bladder tumor, tuberculosis, kidney stones, kidney infection, or a trauma to your kidneys or urinary tract.
Excellent product. It is very effective at not only pet urine odors but also neutralizing human urine odor around toilets and urinals. It is by far the best product that I have ever used on cat urine.
Also wish it had some type of a way to adjust the vigor in which it scrubs the carpet, it is just sooo powerful that I didn’t want to chance it on my more delicate area rug that I have. Don’t get me wrong if I had to choose I would rather it be super powerful as it is but it would be nice if this was an option, hint, hint…
I used this recipe for Dog Urine Removal. I have four dogs and it worked! I couldn’t believe it…smell was gone and it didn’t smell odd like it does with store purchased products…thank you very much. Read all Testimonials

I was very ill for a while and could not take my pet girl out as often as usual. She started peeing on the doormat which is just inside the front door on top of the wooden flooring.. I threw the mat out and followed the vinegar/bicarb hints but still the odour persisted and much worse when the central heating is on..I have an oriental type rug runner in the hall and I do not want her to start using this to pee on!!
Urinary frequency is also important. Peeing six to eight times per day is “average.” You might go more or less often than that, depending on how much water you drink and how active you are. Increased frequency can be caused by an overactive bladder (involuntary contractions), caffeine, a urinary tract infection (UTI), interstitial cystitis, benign prostate enlargement, diabetes, or one of a handful of neurological diseases.9
Try cleaning without detergent at first. If you find that you’re still not pulling up the stain, ask the representatives at the rental center what they recommend, and try to use as little detergent as possible.
I had read mixed reviews regarding this carpet cleaner leaving “clumps” of hair/fur all over the rug, some people saying that it was due to it being so powerful that it pulls up hair that has been missed with a not so powerful vacuum cleaner, and others stating that its suction isn’t powerful enough thus the clumps!
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.
CR’s take: The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 has front-to-back sliding brushes instead of rotational brushes, like other carpet cleaners, similar to the commercial version of the Rug Doctor you can rent. It’s relatively heavy at 43 pounds and takes 3 gallons of water to fill its tank—easily adding up to 25 pounds to its weight—and wasn’t very intuitive when our testers went to fill it up. It does have a long hose, at 155 inches, so you won’t have to lug it at every turn, and its dryness score is Excellent. But unless you have a lot of carpet to clean and plan to clean often, you might want to consider a lighter model. 
I don’t know what to say about how wonderful this tip has been. I have two bichons, one of which has always had problems with holding her bladder. I used Arm and Hammer Stain and Odour Remover which worked pretty well, but over time my rug had the most awful odour- sort of peppery and sickly. I was at the point of replacing my expensive rug when I came across this site. Thank goodness I did! I applied all the solutions this evening and, two hours later, I can’t smell anything nasty. I am going to reapply tomorrow because it takes no time to do this. I just want to ensure this ugly stench stays away. Thank you, thank you.
Thanks Dreamhowl, I hope Murdoch, my JRT is not embarrassed that his picture is being shared across the Internet, portraying him as a slightly incontinent elderly terrier! It will do his street cred no good at all!
What’s to know about urinary tract infections? A urinary tract infection can affect the bladder, the kidneys and the tubes that link them. Usually caused by bacteria, urinary tract infections are much more common in women than men. This article looks at the different types of infection, how to prevent them, and treatment options, including home remedies. Read now
Step 4: Once the carpet is almost dry — which could be several hours later — sprinkle a little baking soda on the area to absorb the odor. Allow the baking soda to settle into the carpet fibers for about 15 minutes, then vacuum the area.

I hope that you have found this article useful and now know how to remove the odor of dog urine from your carpets and eliminate the evidence of those little accidents that are bound to happen from time to time! I use only ingredients from my store cupboard and have never found it necessary to use hydrogen peroxide.
Your urine characteristics can also function as an early warning system for serious health problems including urinary stones, infections, kidney problems, metabolic disorders, diabetes, pituitary disorders, and even tumors
Well, the urine actually seeps right on down through the carpet, the pad, and into the floor sheathing (if you have that) where it stinks for a long time, and where the only remedy is, after the pee dries, to paint it over with a heavy coat of Kiltz or rip up the sheathing and replace it. It also spreads out over the floor slab (if you have that) and remains for a long time. Animals return to spots in your home that you don’t know about and relieve themselves again. The stink reduces your real estate value by $$$$.
When your dog pees on your carpet, there are a few issues you have to address — the smell, the carpet stains and how much of the carpet is saturated, i.e. how long since he peed (and how long the urine has had to seep deep into the carpet).
Wash your bed. Snuggling with your pet in bed can be blissful. However, it’s important to wash your bed often and well, since it will likely be harboring pet odors too. Strip pillow cases, sheets, fitted sheets, duvet covers, and blankets from the bed. Machine wash all the linens and blankets. Add ¼ cup (59 ml) of vinegar to the wash for extra odor-fighting power.[7] Air or tumble dry all the bedding.
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).
Use odor-reducing incontinence products. If you wear adult diapers or incontinence pads, make sure to read the package to see if the product contains odor-reducing materials. The odor reducer should not be a perfume that covers up smell, but a substance that keeps odor from forming in the first place.

Replace the litter. Understandably, litter boxes can get pretty smelly. To clean your box, empty its contents into a plastic garbage bag, then scrub the litter box with soap and water. To remove stains and smells that put up a fight, pour some vinegar into the box and let it soak for about 30 minutes. Then, scrub the box with a brush, rinse it out, and let it air dry.
We have experienced dog urine stains and odor in carpets and have found most commercial cleaners are ineffective. In addition, most carpet cleaning companies are unable to remove the odor. We had one company that had to clean and treat the flooring under the carpet in order to eliminate the odor under the carpet. We are trying the vinegar solution as a last resort for an area rug that the carpet cleaning company was unsuccessful at deodorizing.
Once the paper towel becomes somewhat dry (instead of “drenched”), spray on vinegar and water. Place another clean paper towel on top, then get a heavy object such as a book or a suitcase (depending on how big the pee was!) and lay it over the towel; let set to absorb for 1/2 hour or so. Then you can spray on hydrogen peroxide and wipe with a clean wet rag. Set the book on the spot again and let set another 1/2 hour. You can sprinkle baking soda on later once you think the spot is pretty removed. SOMETIMES YOU MUST REPEAT THIS APPLICATION. You can also use carpet freshener too.
Sounds good, but what about any discoloration damage to carpet if “enough strong peroxide” is used? You say use 30% H202, so is the 40 volume (assume 40%) clear developer from beauty supply too strong?
The most important factor in the overall health of your urinary tract is drinking plenty of pure, fresh water every day. Inadequate hydration is the number one risk factor for kidney stones, as well as being important for preventing UTIs. To avoid overly frequent bathroom breaks, stay hydrated but not overhydrated. Drink whenever you’re thirsty, but don’t feel you have to drink eight glasses of water per day, every day. If you’re getting up during the night to pee, stop drinking three to four hours before bedtime.
This year I got a Hoover WindTunnel 2 shortly after buying my new rug, so it has always had the benefit of a superior vacuum cleaner from the get go and WOW, nary a clump of hair deposited on it at all, while the other one was “clump city”!

CR’s take: For carpet cleaners, this is where it gets tricky: Both of the higher-performing Bissell models on this list have “pet” in their names. This one does, too, but that’s where the similarity ends. Unlike the two Bissells covered above, the Deep Clean Deluxe Pet is only so-so at cleaning and worse than that at leaving a dry carpet behind, scoring a Poor. It’s also several pounds heavier when full of solution—36 pounds, so it can be a bit unwieldy. The ironic part? It costs more than our two top Bissell picks, proving that the price-quality relationship doesn’t always bear out.
Bleach may take the color out of your carpet. Before using any carpet cleaning product, it’s recommended to do a test spot first in an inconspicuous area before using the product on the entire carpet. A carpet cleaning professional might be the best option for dealing with tough, set-in stains.
Mix a solution of a hydrogen peroxide and dish detergent. Take about a half cup of peroxide and mix it with a spoonful of dish detergent. If using on a light-colored carpet, be sure to use a colorless dish detergent.
Bladder stones may occur as a result of concentrated urine forming crystals and usually occur only in men. The urine is also very dark and may sometimes be accompanied by some blood.3 Kidney stones can result in a constant need to pee, ability to only urinate a little at a time, pain while urinating, and possibly even blood in the urine.4
Whether you’re taking care of years of build up of dog urine or a malcontent and spraying feline’s mess you’ll be glad to know that things can be handled. Make sure to give it some time to soak and you’ll be well on your way to a cleaner and better smelling floor.
Clean or dispose of the towels. Because the towels you used for absorbing the urine will have faint traces of your pet’s scent, it’s important to keep your pet from marking them again. Help your pet avoid the temptation by discarding the towel.
Urine does not usually have a strong odor to it. However, occasionally, it will have a pungent smell of ammonia. One explanation for an ammonia odor is high amounts of waste in the urine. But certain foods, dehydration, and infections are also possible.
The key is our product needs to get into contact with the source. We have another product that may be used in conjunction with OdorKlenz Pet Urine Eliminator called the OdorKlenz Subfloor Treatment Kit. You can learn more here: https://www.odorklenz.com/product/odorklenz-subfloor-treatment-kit/
I am stressed out about about my carpet, dog urine is becoming a NIGHTMARE. I take my 1 1/2 yr old dog out at least 5 times a day, she doesn’t have accidents during day, overnight is the problem, I know how to fix her from urinating, she now sleeps in her crate but my problem I just can’t seem to figure out is how to remove old stains & odor from carpet??? I have tried shout urine destroyer solution, baking soda, vintages/water mixture, bissell pet urine/odor cleaning solution, I always made sure to blot the urine spot w/ paper towels to remove most of the wetness, added the solution after soaking up but NOTHING I’ve tried works, I bought a Hoover carpet cleaner in hopes it would do the job but just seems like the urine smell had gotten stronger. I feel hopeless, i live in apartment & it’s stressing me out even more because I don’t want to lose my security deposit, so I’m DESPERATE for any advice.
The best carpet cleaner products for pets should not only simplify clean-ups, but also work to discourage pups from returning to the same area of your home when they need to go. Because pups are often prompted to relieve themselves in the same spot by the scent of their own urine, you’ll want to pick up a pet carpet cleaner that not only gets rid of those tough-to-remove stains, but works to wipe out all traces of the odor as well. Many dog and cat parents agree that by removing all traces of odor and stains, the best carpet cleaner for pets makes it easier to teach them to seek an appropriate place to take care of business.

You love your pets. You love your carpets. Unfortunately the two don’t co-exist well. Knowing how to get pet stains out of carpet is a key a skill for dog and cat owners. Here’s how to clean some of the most common messes caused by your animals. 
Certain foods — most notably asparagus. Asparagus is notorious for causing a foul, eggy or “cabbagy” stench that results from a sulfur compound called methyl mercaptan (also found in garlic and skunk secretions). Only 50 percent of people can smell asparagus pee because they have the required gene. Cutting off the tips of asparagus will reportedly prevent the pungent-smelling pee…but of course, this is the tastiest part!

As our aim is not just to wash the spot but to prevent our dog from peeing there again we should try to use some ingredients which has very strong smell. Using vodka or alcohol (as they have such a strong odor themselves) will help to avoid the future repetition of the pee smell situation. In order to eliminate the smell from the carpet surface we need to apply vodka by wetting the spot with the cloth or spraying it with the spray bottle. After applying the alcohol we should rub the surface with some force. After rubbing we should take a dry paper towel and wipe the remaining liquid from the carpet. We should again and again wipe the surface until the paper towel will remain completely dry.

I have tried everything to house train my puppy and nothing is working he has peed on my carpet and the smell of ammonia is making me sick! I bought a shampooer and have tried everything to get out the smell even vineger and baking soda the smell is still here ,please someone help!
What I like most about this product over all the others is it does not have an overwhelming scent that competes with the urine. Instead, it has a clean almost non-existent smell and really seems to get rid of King PeeALots odor. My nose couldn’t be happier and for now the tiny murder machine is confused as to why his carpet doesn’t smell like contempt anymore.
Take a brush to upholstered furniture like couches. Fill a bucket with warm water and several drops of liquid dish soap. Swirl the water to create suds. Dip a soft-bristled brush into the suds and brush the entire surface of the furniture. Wipe with a barely damp cloth and air dry.
Hydrogen peroxide, or H2O2, is a powerful oxidizer that renders the chemicals in strong, acidic pet fluids, such as urine or vomit, inert. Peroxide breaks down the crystallizing compounds in urine and also removes stains. Be sure to test for color fastness before applying.

“Your best defense as soon as you see an accident is to blot as much as you can with towels,” he said. “Then, put a few drops of green dish detergent and a little water on the area, place a towel over it and step on it so it absorbs as much as possible.”
First, the basics. What’s the best dog urine remover? You might be surprised to know that it’s plain old water! Below are some tips on the first steps to take to get dog urine out of carpet as soon as you find his “oops” spot(s).
Most changes in urine odor are not a sign of disease and go away in time. Some foods and medicines, including vitamins, may affect your urine’s odor. For example, eating asparagus causes a distinct urine odor.

Some people have an abnormal connection between the intestines and their bladder. This can cause problematic urinary tract infections as well as smelly urine. Another sign to watch for is if gas or even stool-like substances appear to emerge from the urethra while urinating.11
One important caution….These products can take the color out of cheap carpeting if left soaking wet to dry. Test in a closet first. If your carpets lose color than you can still pour on but must blot off, this will still help but will not be as effective as leaving it on.
Sophia: I really need to do something about this problem in the house we just moved into 3 weeks ago. Before we moved into this house we had the entire carpet professionally steam cleaned. The carpet cleaner could smell dog urine as soon as he came into the house (it was a rainy day). It has been three weeks and we still smell it in a couple of the rooms.
The liver, similarly to the kidneys, is responsible for removing toxins from the body and helping it to digest food. Infections and diseases of the liver can produce high levels of ammonia in the urine and the accompanying pungent odor.
For many pet owners, urine is the enemy, the smell just never comes out! Even though it’s messy, I would almost rather have my dogs have diarrhea in the house than pee on the floor. The stink of urine lingers and just will NOT go away. Diarrhea is awful, but a good scrubbing later, I can pretend it never happened.
When you’re unable to keep your diabetes in check as a patient of Type 2 diabetes, you could end up with sweet smelling urine. This is due to glucose or sugar from your body spilling into the urine because their levels are too high in your system.9 Other signs that your problem may be diabetes-linked are feeling very thirsty, needing to pee more often (especially at night), tiredness, weight loss, slow healing wounds, blurred vision, and reoccurrence of thrush.10
