How To Get Pet Stains Out Of The Carpet
Even the best house-trained pets can have occasional accidents, and there is nothing more annoying than to find a ‘surprise’ on the floor waiting to be cleaned up, especially on the carpet. It doesn’t matter if your carpet is light or dark in colour, obviously some carpets will show pet stains more than others, but what you really want to do is remove the pet mess and stain completely so you can feel confident that it is totally gone and not lingering in the fibres.
If you can, you should always blot up any pet mess immediately, this will help to prevent the odour penetrating into the floor. Then, you should proceed to use this homemade pet stain remover;
This is a homemade natural cleaner that will treat pet stains, as well as eliminate any odours that the may have been left behind too. Simply mix equal parts of table salt, white vinegar, and borax powder together. This will form a paste which can then be applied to the area of the carpet that is stained. Keep your pet away from it if possible and leave it to dry for about 24 hours, then vacuum the dried powder from the floor. After vacuuming up the powder, you can then rinse the area with warm water and a cloth.
By using this DIY pet stain remover, it will not only deodorise and remove any bacteria from the carpet, but it will also lift the stain. This is effective on light colour carpets, however because vinegar can act as a natural bleach it is always best to do a small patch test on coloured carpets and rugs, or expensive flooring.
