I am just another pet lover in this world and Rocky, a tiny teckel, brings joy into my life with his waggly tail. He’s simply adorable! But, as any other pet, Rocky has a problem with his bladder: sometimes he pees on the carpet, hardwood flooring, bed and sofa instead of doing it outside. He’s a bit hard-headed and it will take a while until I train him completely to pee outside.
Rocky’s favorite place to pee is behind the closet on my hardwood flooring, so I have to clean it thoroughly to prevent further damage. Enzyme stain removal seems to be the best method for cleaning pee from hardwood surfaces. If you want to remove urine stains from hardwood flooring and carpet without spending a fortune, try a homemade enzyme cleaner. You probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.
🛒 Ingredients Needed:
▪ 1 cup water
▪ 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar
▪ 1/4 cup baking soda
▪ 1/4 mild dish soap
🧽 How to prepare:
Shake the ingredients vigorously in a clean spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the stain, rub it in lightly with a clean cloth, and let it stand for about 15 minutes. Rinse the solution away with a damp cloth and allow to dry thoroughly.
This homemade enzyme cleaner works wonders at removing pet urine stains from carpets and hardwood flooring. You can also use it on fabric sofas, as a matter of fact.
The situation changes if your male cat pees on the hardwood floor, causing a pungent odor and black stain on the floor. In this scenario, you need a stronger enzyme cleaner, specially designed for male cat urine.
🛒 You Need:
▪ hydrogen peroxide
▪ plastic wrap
🧽 How to use:
Pour the hydrogen peroxide over the stain and then cover it with a clean cloth soaked in hydrogen peroxide. The cloth should be wrapped in plastic wrap, weighted if necessary with a book. Let this sit overnight or for at least 8 hours. The hydrogen peroxide should remove any stains and eliminate the urine odor.
❗ Keep in mind: Before using the hydrogen peroxide solution you should first apply the homemade enzyme urine cleaner based on vinegar.
