How to clean up carpet pee-pee stains?

Post by Jeff Ma » Sat, 14 Jan 1995 06:40:17



Nobody answered my question of a few weeks ago -- how to clean up old
pee-pee stains on a tan carpet.

Does no one know?

Or is it in the FAQ?

Or am I just dumb?

There are enzyme-based cleaners which will do the trick. I've used
both Nilodor and Simple Solution. both work well.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

A product called Nature's Miracle has always worked for me and it really
does perform "miracles". It removes both stains and odor. It is available
at most pet stores and possibly through your vet.

good luck.

I have quite a bit of experience with this, since I often take in foster
dogs who make mistakes.

 Old pet stains have two problems: odor and the yellow/brown discoloring
on the rug. Usually you need to treat each problem separately.

Use an enzyme to get the odor out. Also use vinegar. You might have to
repeat this several times. I've sometimes covered the spot with a damp
cloth after saturating the stained area in order to keep the enzyme
working longer. Directions on bottle.

I would advise against chemical cleaners to get out the discoloration.
First try plain water and carpet cleaner. Some enzymes are meant for the
stain rather than the odor.  The steam carpet cleaners are expensive to
rent from the hardware store if you are treating just one spot ($6/day
at my store) but they are best because they suck out the bad stuff. I
usually end up doing the whole house. . .If you use a chemical cleaner,
test it first. It can leave an awful color such as pink on your rug if
it interacts with the coloring and the stain.

Don't know a lot about old pee stains.  But if it is fresh use baking soda to
clean-up the mess.  Soak as much urine out of the carpet as possible and then
sprinkle the baking soda on the spot.  Once it is dry, vaccum it up.  The
baking soda absorbs the liquid and gets rid of the odor, and does not
leave a stain.  We occassionally have accidents with our female boxer, and
this method works great for us.

I use club soda.  After saturating the area with it, I blot it up then follow
it with an enzymatic odor remover.  I heard that seltzer water was what the
method of choice for the royal family.  It works on all sorts of other stains
as well.

I have this funny mental image of a liveried butler chasing after the corgis
with a bottle of seltzer. :-)
