We love our four-legged “furkids” but not the stains and messes they leave behind. There’s no way to avoid the mess, but by making your own cleaners you can avoid lasting stains and extra money spent on store-bought stain removers.
White vinegar is a miraculous substance that will get rid of even the old accident stains that might have been missed. Baking soda is nature’s odor remover, and teamed up with vinegar, does a great job at getting rid of odors!
Mix up your water and vinegar solution (2 cups water + 2 cups white vinegar). After blotting up any excess fluid, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the soiled area. Pour the water and vinegar solution directly onto the baking soda to create a mini cleaning volcano that will actively eat away at the stain. Blot and rub gently dry with a soft cloth after letting it sit for 5 minutes. For stale stains or persistent odor, call a professional carpet cleaner.
