Eliminate Pet Urine Odor From Carpet & Clothes With Ammonia
by Gloria Thomsen
Gloria shared her tips for how to eliminate pet urine odor from carpet and clothes.
When shampooing your carpets and there is pet urine, add some ammonia (approximately 1 cup per gallon) to the water and rinse carpet with the ammonia/water solution.
Let it sit for 15 minutes and then shampoo as normal.
The ammonia smell will be strong, but it will gone within minutes as well as the urine smell.
This works for clothes as well. Add 1 cup of ammonia to the washer to remove urine AND that musty smell that appears on our dishcloths and towels now and then.
Thanks so much for this tip for removing pet urine smells Gloria.
I will add a couple words of caution to this tip though.
WORDS OF CAUTION
First, make sure you have a synthetic carpet before you use this tip, since if you should NEVER use ammonia on a wool carpet (it can permanently damage it).
Second, make sure to open all your windows and thoroughly ventilate the room your shampooing if you're going to add ammonia, so you don't get sick from the fumes.
I'd love to hear from even more people with their tips and home remedies for removing pet odors or all types. You can share your tips and remedies here, or read other tips that have already been submitted.
