Dog Urine Smell and
Stain Remover Recipe
Liquid Dishwashing Detergent (Dish Soap)
3% Hydrogen Peroxide (10 Vol)
Mix a solution of fifty percent white vinegar and fifty percent water. Use a spray bottle to apply the vinegar solution to the carpet. Work the solution into the carpet with a soft brush (or your fingers) to ensure it penetrates the carpet fibers below.
Then blot the area using the paper towel method above to absorb the vinegar mixture. The vinegar will neutralize the ammonia in the dog urine.
If you own a wet/dry vacuum extractor use it to remove excess moisture.
Regular vacuuming will help rugs retain their beauty and will extend the life of the rug.
Clean food and beverage spills immediately by removing the excess material gently with a spoon and then use R2X- stain and soil remover. If R2X is not available use a solution of clear, non-bleach dish washing detergent (1/4 tsp detergent to 32 oz water). Gently agitate the pile and blot with white paper towels until no transfer of the spill or color. Rinse by spraying with clean water and blot dry. To help the area dry faster try placing a thick stack of white paper towels on the area and then put a smooth bottomed casserole dish on top. Use a milk jug filled with water or some other heavy object in the dish. You can switch out stacks of paper towels until there is no more moisture present.
Professional carpet cleaning is recommended using the hot water extraction method. Do not dry clean your Shaw Rugs and or use bleach.
