Aren’t we all dog lovers at heart?
Well, if you’ve got a dog at home, most likely you have an accident or two happen around the house.
Staff here at Tri Maids agree that this solution is one of the most simple, eco-friendly and inexpensive ways to treat those accidental stains.
Vinegar-Baking Soda Mixture
White vinegar is a miraculous substance that will get rid of even old accident stains that might have been missed.
Baking soda is a natural odor remover, and combining it with vinegar does a great job at getting rid of odors!
You can do this combination two different ways–I’ll explain both!
You will need…
-2 cups white distilled vinegar
-2 cups of lukewarm water
-4 generous tablespoons of baking soda
-Spray bottle (optional)
It’s very important that you thoroughly blot up everything possible.
-Mix 2 cups of white distilled vinegar with 2 cups of lukewarm water in a large bowl.
-Add in 4 heaping tablespoons of baking soda. Add this in small increments because it will start to fizz up. Pour into a spray bottle and thoroughly spray the area. Let sit for 5 minutes, then gently rub and blot up with a soft cloth. You can also simply pour some straight from the bowl over the stain if you don’t have a spray bottle.
Either way you do this, remember to blot or clean up as much as possible!
-Mix 2 cups of lukewarm water with 2 cups of white distilled vinegar.
-Sprinkle baking soda liberally over the area where the accident occurred. Let it break down and deodorize for about 5 minutes.
-Then pour the water and vinegar solution directly onto the baking soda to create a mini cleaning volcano that will actively eat away at the stain. Blot and gently rub dry with a soft cloth after letting it sit for 5 minutes.
