White vinegar is good at getting stains out. Her house will smell like vinegar for awhile though. I rub the rug with a rag soaked in it over the stain and keep rubbing it with a clean wet part of the rag till the stain is gone. It removed a coffee stain on an aqua colored carpet.
Our old spayed female dog is leaking now at night and I found a couple recipes online to get rid of the smell:
2 cups white vinegar
2 cups water
4 + TBSP baking soda sprinkled over wet area. Remove the powder when dried and then vacuum. It is bad for the vacuum cleaner to vacuum up powder so try to sweep most up with a whisk broom.
I use this one the most.
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup 3% peroxide
1 tsp dish soap I use dawn clear detergent.
in a bowl
Mix peroxide and detergent mixture and rub with a sponge or rag over rug or on hard floor. Sprinkle spot with Baking soda. Sweep up the Baking Soda later.
I sometimes clean the wood floor where she sleeps with Murphey's oil which also seems to neutralize the smell.
