House Cleaning
Tips

Never throw away old terry cloth towels, they are ideal for sopping up urine!

Purchase 2 bench/pastry scrappers (2 5-6" putty knives will also work) and use to remove solid debris from accidents.

Keep old towels hidden in carpeted rooms to soak up wet accidents immdiately.

Immediately treat all types of accidents, with an enzyme product, according to instructions.

Dog Poop & Urine Removal

Tips & Hints for Eliminating Pet Odor

Housecleaning-Made-Easy.com

No matter how well trained accidents will happen. Be prepared in advance:

Pet Survival Supplies:

  • Old Absorbant Terry Cloth Towels, keep these hidden in a cabinet or under a cushion in all rooms where animals are allowed, excellent idea w/children too
  • Additional items to be stored under a sink, in the laundry room or any easily accessed storage location that doesn't freeze.
    • Old Absorbant Terry Cloth Towels, keep these hidden in a cabinet or under a cushion in all rooms where animals are allowed, excellent idea w/children too
    • Additional items to be stored under a sink, in the laundry room or any easily accessed storage location that doesn't freeze.
      • Petastic (Petastic is the original Nature's Miracle formula enzyme cleaner, Nature's Miracle is now an entirely different product!)
      • Rubber Gloves
      • Two bench/pastry scrappers (I love these for removing solid debris with least amount of smearing) or 2 5-6" wide putty knives will work just as well.
      • Additional old towels and rags
      • Plastic Bags (this would be an excellent place to recycle some of those grocery bags)
      • Paper towels
      • Spray Bottle filled with water
      • A wet/dry vacuum (optional)

Liquid Soil:


  • Grab your old absorbant terry cloth towel from its hiding place.
  • If not already done fold it in the typical square
  • Place the still folded towel over the accident step on it and do the twist with your feet.
  • Pick it up reverse the fold so the wet area is now inside on the top portion
  • Repeat the above.
  • Now go get the Petastic from your pet survival stash.
  • Follow the Petastic instructions making sure to use enough to penetrate to the level the original accident reached
  • Do nothing else to the site (a wet/dry vacuum can be used after waiting 4-5 minutes) - it might take 3 days or a week for it to dry completely but when it does there will be NO lingering odor.

Solid Soil:


  • ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RUB! Rubbing will force the solid soil into the microfiber so it may be impossible to eliminate completely
  • Retrieve the bench/pastry scrappers (or putty knives), the rubber gloves, plastic trash bag, Petastic, several dry paper towels and a wet rag
  • Using the bench/pastry scrapper (or putty knives) lift, to the best of your ability, all the solid soil and drop into bag. The object is to remove as much as possible with minimal repeat efforts which can force soil into the fibers.
  • With a dry paper towel BLOT up as much remaining soil as possible
  • Treat according to the directions with Petastic
  • When completely dry (a wet/dry vacuum can be used after waiting 4-5 minutes), otherwise it will probably take 3-5 days, vacuum as usual.

Loose/Liquid Soil:


(a wet/dry vacuum would be best used in place of blotting in this case)
  • ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RUB! Rubbing will force the solid soil into the microfiber so it may be impossible to eliminate completely
  • If the soiled area is more liquid then solid use the scrappers or putty knives to remove as much as possible. Again the object is to remove as much as possible with minimal repeat efforts which can force soil into the fibers.
  • Spray moderately with water and Blot up as much as possible using dry Terry Cloth Towels
  • Repeat if necessary
  • When you've blotted as much as possible Follow the instructions and Treat with Petastic.
