Our Sadey is a really good dog.
She has a fantastic disposition.
She's lovable and we adore her.
Lately, she has been leaving tiny little potty spots on our white carpets. Grrrr.....
Her potty spots are VERY concentrated and VERY hard to fully remove.
This drives me nuts!
I found this tip for cleaning up potty spots and I am here to tell you it works!!
What's the magic trick? Good old fashion vinegar and baking soda.
When I find a spot (hopefully its fresh) I use a dry cloth to soak up as much
of the wetness as possible. Next, I liberally pour vinegar over the spot.
Lastly topping it off with heaping amount of baking soda. Let the baking soda sit. I let ours
sit over night. Cover it up with a towel or a bucket or whatever you have to keep
puppies, kiddies and feet out of it.
You will find that the baking soda really pulls the vinegar, and hopefully the
stain out of the carpet. When you think its done its job, then vacuum it up
with the hose attachment. Making sure to pull all the baking soda from
the carpet. If you have a carpet cleaner a once over for good measure is
what I prefer.
I have tried several of the pet urine removers on the market and I have found
this to do the best job at actually removing the stain as well as neutralizing the
It goes without saying.... test your carpet first to be sure it is colorfast. The
last thing you want it to remove any dye from your carpeting.
I have owned carpet cleaners in the past and I've never really been impressed.
They were ok with spot cleaning, but not for cleaning multiple rooms. We
invested in a Rug Doctor.
We've rented Rug Doctors in the past and they do a really great job.
I like the idea of having my own cleaner. Not a cleaner that someone else has used.
We really like ours.
I'm hoping to get to the bottom of why Sadey is leaving us little
surprises, but I'm feeling better about having a solution to our problem.
Have you found something that works well for cleaning up spills and / or pet stains?
