Pet Wellness: 3 Home Remedies to Remove Pet Odors & Stains, Springfield, Ohio

Some amount of stains and odors come with the territory when you own a pet, but they can become unsightly if not taken care of. Many pet owners believe specialty products and treatments are required, especially for older stains. However, according to pet wellness specialists at TLC Pet Care Centers in Cincinnati, OH, there are plenty of home remedies to solve the problem. In many cases, you already own the requisite materials, so read on for recipes and applications.

Pet Wellness Experts Offer 3 DIY Fixes for Pet Odors and Stains

1. Bleach

For odors that have embedded themselves in concrete surfaces, pure bleach will do the trick. Spray generously in your garage, along home entryways, or other outdoor areas and the smells should vanish after an application or two. Remember to handle bleach with care—it can be harmful to skin, eyes, and clothes, and may kill foliage around the concrete areas. Also, practice pet wellness habits by keeping them away from the area.

2. Corn Starch

It will need to be brushed in to reach deeper residue. Let it sit for 24 hours. Once dry, vacuum the area to remove the corn starch and stain material.

3. White Vinegar & Baking Soda

This time-tested method has proven invaluable for ridding yourself of even the deepest stains. For fresh stains, absorb as much as you can with a towel. Then, make a 50-50 blend of vinegar and baking soda. Spray this over the area, blot dry, and spread more baking soda. This should remove any pet stains. Take it a step further by mixing in dish detergent and hydrogen peroxide to help with odors.

These tried and true solutions should fix any stains or smells you’re dealing with, but remember to keep trying if they don’t work the first time. If your pet is having difficulty with bathroom habits, consult with a veterinarian at TLC Pet Care Centers. They can conduct a comprehensive pet wellness exam and provide any animal care needs.
