Pet urine can fill a house with the smell of ammonia and other strong scents. Although you may get used to the scent, the longer you go without treating the stain and smell, the harder it will be to remove from your walls, carpet, clothes and furniture. You can get rid of dog urine smells whether they are new or old. Here are some solutions to help you fight the odor.
A mixture of three parts water to one part vinegar will usually get rid of dog odor, as well as eliminate the stain. The urine spot must first be soaked up to remove excess liquid before applying the solution. The solution should then saturate the spot and then be blotted up with a dry towel. Once dried, baking soda should be sprinkled over the stain. An additional measure of combining 3/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide with a small drop of dish detergent can be added to the baking soda. After the mixture is worked into the carpet, it can be vacuumed up. Test a small portion of carpet with the peroxide to see whether discoloring occurs before using the full amount.
Bleach and water
On areas where color cannot be destroyed by bleach, another recipe for removing dog odor is to clean the spot with a solution of bleach and water. After applying the bleach solution, the spot should be cleaned with water several times after to avoid leaving any residual bleach in the area
Apply Borax to the stain to remove the urine odor. It is used in much the same way as baking soda by sprinkling over the spot, rubbing in with some water and towel blotting the remaining residue. Borax must be used with care however; ingesting less than 5 grams of Borax is lethal to children and pets.
