If the Urine is on an all natural fiber such as wool or cotton, do not use anything with an oxidizer in it such as Hydrogen Peroxide ( h2o2 ) or carbonated water ( h2co3. ) Oxidization degrades anything all natural, such as Urine, Coffee, Silk Cotton, or Wool. The fibers will degrade and start to
become stiff and potentially lose color.

Our fuzzy ones try their best to be best friends, and at times therapists, but as we know its impossible for anyone, or anything to be perfect, ( Earnie the pug is the clear exception here. ) Fresh urine is a rather unique property, it actually comes out and acid. One of the reasons urine stinks is once it dries is because it dries to a salty crystal commonly known as ammonia.

So when urine comes out it has a low power of hydrogen, or PH, once dries it has a very high PH. Physics class, or wait was that biology, tough us, in order to neutralize a high PH you have to use a substance which contains a low PH to aid in getting it as close to neutral on the PH scale as possible. A good example of a neutral liquid is, tap

water. What we recommend is using distilled over the counter cleaning acetic acid aka: “vinegar” – make sure and get the clear stuff, not the apple cider variation. Simply get the affected area damp with a around five to six quirts from a trigger sprayer. Basically you want to put down the same amount that your little furry friend put down. Then let it sit for about five minutes, then take a dry towel and blot up as much as you can just like when you remove red stains from carpet. Then repeat if you still smell urine. If not go a head and put down the same amount you used before, but this time us simple water, or carbonated water. Let sit again on the carpet for 5 minutes. Then blot up with dry towel, let it dry, and you done!

  1. Spray clear vinegar with water 75% water – 25% vinegar
  2. Place paper towel over stain and blot dry
  3. Repeat with carbonated water or hydrogen peroxide
  4. Place plastic over stain.
  5. A UV aka: black light or sunlight will speed up the process.
  6. Blot with a wet cotton towel over stain once gone to help rinse.
