How to Clean Puppy Pee from a Carpet

You’ve heard the saying that a dog is man’s best friend, right?

But even the very best of friends can cause accidents that need solutions. Whether you are potty training your puppy or your dog was alone too long, at some point in your dog-owning years, you will most likely experience a dog pee accident and most likely it will be on the carpet.

Just take a breather, and read on to find out how to get dog urine out of the carpet:

Tips for Removing Dog Urine from Carpet

1. Paper and Soap

Cleaning up pee is best done when the pee is fresh. Just squeeze a few drops of soap and water onto the pee spot and blot the spot with paper towel. Don’t rub back and forth, as it forces the dog urine further into the carpet fibers. Blotting is the best thing you can do. If you don’t want to use your hands, a great way to clean it is to place the paper towel on the area and step on it again and again until you believe the dog urine is gone.

2. Baking Soda and Vinegar

If you didn’t find the pee until later when it had dried here are two ways to use these substances: Pour baking soda on the spot and allow it to stay there overnight. In the morning, put some white vinegar over the soda and let it sit for five to ten more minutes. Then, dab it out with a cloth.

If you have a young dog that often leaves its urine on the carpet, a practical way of cleaning is to mix 1 cup water, 1 cup vinegar, and two big tablespoons of baking soda in the spray bottle and shake well. Spray this directly on the spot, allow it to rest for five to six minutes, then blot.

3. Hydrogen Peroxide

Another excellent pet urine remover comes is hydrogen peroxide. Just put some peroxide into a spray bottle, soak the stain in a few sprays, and let it sit for about 10 or 15 minutes. To finish the job, clean it up with a rag but don’t rub: dab or blot.
