Getting Rid of Pet Odors
· For pets that completely disregard their designated bathroom facility and soil carpet instead, blot the area with a paper towel to absorb as much as you can, unless it is poo and blotting will only make things worse! You know what to do with that. Once the most of it is picked up or blotted up, use a vinegar and water solution to clean it up. This will help with the stain and freshen the area to eliminate the odor.
· Urine Gone is actually pretty effective stuff. Follow the directions on the bottle and it works quite well. I know because my mother walked around her house for two years with a bottle of it permanently attached to her left hand. Very sad.
· Arm and Hammer makes a multi-cat cat litter and it works very well. Air fresheners are always a good idea, put one of the sticky ones on the box and it’ll last for several months.
· Wet dogs never smell good. Keep a towel handy for when your dog goes out to use the bathroom on a rainy day. Muddy paws wreak havoc on floors.
· Febreze the furniture regularly. You can also Febreze the carpets and drapes as well.
· I once went on a tangent and bought three of those Glade Plugins for my apartment. Bad idea. One of these is plenty strong enough to fill a room. Three is well…three is awful. Don’t do that. But one situated near the kitty box will work wonders!
