Carpets are the most functional and fashionable item inside a household. They are always in contact with our family and us because they could be placed anywhere inside the house.
Though they have a lot of functions inside the house, they are also the hardest to clean, especially if they are made from heavy or thick fur material. What is more dreadful when cleaning a carpet is when you have a pet inside the house, most common pet inside the house that could ruin your carpet are dogs and cats.
One of the most common problems in a household is how to remove a dog's pee in the carpet. It could be bothersome because a dog's pee have foul smell especially when not immediately removed.
The first thing to do when your dog pees in your carpet is to prevent its pee from being absorbed all the way to the bottom of your carpet. You can prevent this by getting a paper towel or rag and place it on top of the urine. This will absorb the urine faster than being absorbed by the carpet itself.
Once the pee dries up using your rags or paper towels, prepare a solution using a mixture of baking soda, white vinegar, 3% hydrogen peroxide, and a small amount of dishwashing detergent.
Scrub this mixture where the pee is and allow the solution to penetrate as deeply as possible. You can scrub using a toothbrush to make sure the bristles of the toothbrush will penetrate the fine fibers of your carpet.
After scrubbing, you can get a wet cloth to rinse it properly and leave it dry. You can use a hair dryer to dry it faster.
Once it dries up, you will be able to see the baking soda you used in your mixture in your carpet where you scrubbed the mixture. All you need is to vacuum the carpet.
