How to Clean Pet Urine Stains like a Pro

Gather Your Supplies

The first step is gathering all of the supplies you will need for cleaning up pet urine stains. You should have an enzyme cleaner specifically designed for pet messes, paper towels (or an old towel), rubber gloves if desired, and a spray bottle filled with water. Enzyme cleaners are helpful because they break down the proteins in the urine, making them easier to clean up. The paper towels and water help remove any excess moisture from the affected area so that it can dry completely. Finally, rubber gloves are optional but may be useful if you really want to get in there and get your hands dirty (literally).

Remove Excess Urine

Once you have all of your supplies ready to go, it’s time to start cleaning! Begin by using paper towels or a towel to blot up as much of the excess urine as possible. If you don't have any paper towels at hand, old newspapers work just as well – just don't use colored ink! Once you've removed as much liquid as possible, it's time for the enzyme cleaner. Spray liberally onto the stained area until it is wet but not dripping. You may also want to add some extra cleaning solution around the edges of the stain in order to get any residual urine that has seeped into crevices or hard-to-reach places. Allow this mixture time to soak into affected area for about 10 minutes before proceeding further with your cleaning process. 

Finish Off The Job  

After allowing enough time for soaking in your enzyme cleaner solution, grab those paper towels again and begin blotting up any remaining liquid from your pet's accident spot until no more comes off onto your towel(s). Take care not to scrub too hard—you don't want to damage any fibers or make matters worse than they already are! Once everything looks good and clean again, spray a generous amount of water onto the stain one final time before letting everything air dry completely (this could take anywhere from several hours up to an entire day depending on how much cleaner was used). Once dry, give yourself a pat on the back – congratulations on being a pro at getting rid of pet urine stains! 

Nobody likes dealing with pet accidents – but when they do happen, knowing how best to cleanup afterwards can make all the difference in reducing stress levels and preventing further damage from occurring down the line. With these simple steps outlined above anyone can become a master at removing pet urine stains quickly and efficiently in no time flat! So next time Kitty forgets which end is which when using her litter box – now you know exactly what steps need taking next! Good luck!
