Use Baking Soda And Vinegar To Remove Pet Stains From Carpets :: IAMCHIQ.COM LIVING - LIFESTYLE
A Simple, Effective Remedy For Pet Stains On Carpets
Get rid of pet accidents. Use vinegar and baking soda. The steps are the important part. Pour enough vinegar to soak the stain and THEN add a small amount of baking soda. Will not work in reverse. The right way will clean and deoderize without leaving residue. Let spot dry for a day or two. Then sweep and vacuum. We cover the spot with a bowl or plate so that we don’t have baking soda everywhere. You can actually see the stain being absorbed up into the baking soda. Works on old stains too!
Remove urine stains (from potty training or pets) from a mattress, upholstered furniture, carpet, etc. Pour 8 oz. hydrogen peroxide into a measuring cup, add 3T baking soda and stir till dissolved. Pour into a spray bottle, add a drop or two of dishwashing soap (Dawn, Palmolive, etc). Shake it up then spray it on the stained area. When it dries, the stain should be gone. (Test in an inconspicuous place first to be sure the solution doesnt remove the color from the fabric.) @ Home Renovation…
Another Pinner: Cleaning solution for mattresses. I finally tried it today. @ 1st, I didn't think it worked because I am impatient. But about an hour later, I went back in the room & the mattress looked brand spanking new! I will do this every time one of the kids has an accident or a spill. It even made an improvement on my dining room chairs. Me: You had me at mattresses...
Can't get the smelly dog or cat urine smell out of the carpet? This method works! Spray area thoroughly with a mix of vinegar & water (50/50), blot to remove excess moisture, sprinkle a handful of baking soda over the area, and spray with a mix of hydrogen peroxide (3% - do not use any stronger) and mild dish detergent (ratio: 1/2 c peroxide to 1 tsp detergent). Scrub into carpet and let it dry.
Every month or two, give the pipes a good preventative cleaning to keep them clear of grease, oil, and hair clogs. Pour 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, followed by 1/2 cup white vinegar. The mixture will foam up. Let stand for a few minutes to dissolve fatty acids, then pour boiling water down the drain to wash out any clogs. This really works!
