Help! My Dog Peed. How to Combat The Dog Urine Smell.

You come home from a long day at work and open the door to catch an ammonia-like whiff that can mean only one thing – the dog peed. AGAIN.

Instead of putting your feet up and enjoying a glass of wine, you are now stuck scrubbing and washing in hopes of eliminating that dog urine smell that never really goes away.

You finally get the dog urine all soaked up and the laundry going but the the smell lingers like a cloud following you from room to room.  Admit it, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

How to Get Rid of the Smell

You can pull out some white wine vinegar and baking soda from your cupboard. Start by spraying a mixture of white wine vinegar and water on the areas to help disinfect the area. Pat with paper towels until dry.

Once it’s dry, sprinkle the area with some baking soda to eliminate odor. Let it sit on the spot of dog urine and then vacuum up all the baking soda. You may need to repeat this process a few times. And don’t worry the vinegar smell goes away eventually.

Things to Avoid

Avoid using steam cleaners right off the bat to clean urine odors from carpet or upholstery. The heat will permanently set the stain and the odor by bonding the protein into any man-made fibers.

Also avoid using cleaning chemicals, especially those with strong odors. From your pet’s perspective, these don’t effectively eliminate or cover the urine odor and may actually encourage your pet to reinforce the urine scent mark in that area.

    We recently purchased my mother-in-law’s home, which has hardwood floors in the living room and bedroom, and older linoleum in the upstairs rooms. We have replaced flooring in the kitchen and bathroom, and scrubbed and painted every inch of the house, preparing it to rent out, but there is still an odor. I was considering using your product because my M-I-L said that a dog peed upstairs on the flooring, and also on the vinyl-tiled front entry way. We pulled up old carpet from upstairs, and it did have what looked like pet stains on the reverse side. We are almost ready to rent out the house, and I was wondering if this product would be effective on this type of flooring.

    • Hi Terry,

      Thank you for your question. OdorZout has been proven effective on all types of flooring. The wonderful thing about our product is it doesn’t just pull odor from the floor but also pulls it from the surrounding walls, furniture, vents, etc. Be prepared for multiple applications depending on how entrenched the odor is into the flooring.

  2. Hi…I wonder if you could please give me advice. I was making a quilt for my granddaughter…and while working on it at someones house..unknown to me their pet (I think cat) peed on it. It was packed away and about 3 yrs later I unpacked it and it reeked. This quilt unfinished has cost about 400.00 and I really want to get the smell out and finish it. Can you hrlp me??!!!. I so appreciate any and all advice. I live in Canada so if you recommend a product to me I hope I will be able to get it here. My sincerest thank you for reading this. Have a great day

    • Hi Tamara,

      Thank you for your question. I am going to assume that you cannot launder it in its incomplete state. If you can then I would recommend adding 2 tablespoons of the Laundry Additive to your wash. Otherwise, I would lay the quilt out flat. Place a cotton sheet over the quilt and lightly sprinkle some All Surface Granules on top of the cotton sheet. Let it sit overnight. Then pick up the sheet and toss the granules outside or into a trash bag. You may need to repeat this process 1-3 times to completely eliminate the smell, especially since it has been packed away. Your quilt will be smelling good as new in just a few days. Good Luck and let us know how you make out.
