Pet Stains and Carpet Tips

For removing excrement, urine and vomit:

Lift off solids, then mix 1/2 teaspoon mild detergent or castile soap per pint of water and blot the area. Follow with 1/2 teaspoon ammonia per cup of water, blot again. Finally mix equal parts white vinegar and water, and blot once more. Then rinse the whole area. The ammonia will repel the pet (not to mention everyone else in the room -- open the windows!), and they will avoid going in that spot again.

We've used this trick when our kitties have gotten out of control in the box area. It worked very well. We also follow-up by sprinkling baking soda on the area each time we clean the box. The baking soda not only absorbs any lingering odors from your pet, it also takes away the strong ammonia scent.

Your pet will sniff out traces of the odor long after you think it's gone. A cotton ball soaked in lemon essential oil can help dissipate the scent. But use caution, because essential oils are potent and if ingested can hurt your pet or a small child who happens to find it. The best way to use lemon essential oil safely is to soak the cotton ball, then place it in a tea ball and keep it in the area. The scent will waft through the holes in the tea ball and remain effective for a long time.

We hope these pet stains and carpet tips have been helpful.
