Pet Odor Removal: Maintaining a Fresh Smelling Home

Pet Odor Removal Maintaining a Fresh Smelling HomeWhether you’re a cat lover, dog lover, or just an animal lover in general, you can’t escape the odor caused by your cute and furry (or non-furry) companion. Taking care of domestic animals can be a full-time job.

Your pups may not have gone through the potty-training process or they may enjoy decorating your carpet with fresh mud from your garden. Regardless of what makes the case for causing household odors, the following tips will help you maintain an aromatic home.

Homemade Cleaners

Sometimes, your pet can surprise you with an accident that you weren’t prepared for. So instead of fretting about having to run to the nearest convenience store to grab a cleaning detergent, you can just improvise at home. The bottom line is that a stain should be removed while it’s still fresh, so the faster you clean it, the better.

  • Citrus-Enzyme Solutions

Perhaps your pet thought the back of your couch was a bathroom and left a stain you may have missed. You can go grab a bottle of citrus-enzyme cleaner, or if you’d like make this particular solution yourself to clean up the catastrophe, you must have it ready ahead of time (and it’ll even save you some money, too).

First, mix in 1 cup of brown sugar and about 2-½ cups of lemon and orange peels into a container holding 1 liter of water. Once everything is set in the bottle, just loosen up the cap a little to let any gases out (similar to the process of wine-making). Then, you must wait for about three months before using your creation.

  • Baking Soda Blends

The best way to remove an old smelly stain is by using a mixture of vinegar and baking soda. Just add 2 cups of vinegar to 2 cups of water and 4 full tablespoons of baking soda to create a spray.

Before spraying it on the stain, cover the stain with a rag and use a heavy item like a book to press the rag onto the stain for a while—soak up as much as possible! Now you can spray the solution and let it sit for five minutes before removing with a soft cloth. Voila! The stain and odor should both disappear.

For even tougher-to-remove stains, you can replace the vinegar in the aforementioned blend with half a cup of hydrogen peroxide along with a teaspoon of dish detergent. Using a cloth or brush, scrub the mixture into the carpet and let it sit for about 10 minutes before vacuuming it off. You may repeat these steps to thoroughly clean stubborn stains.
