The first step is identifying the type of surface you’re dealing with. Different surfaces require different cleaning methods; for example, if the urine stain is on carpet or upholstery, it will need to be treated differently than if it were on linoleum or tile. Once you know what kind of surface you’re dealing with, you can move on to cleaning.

For carpeting or upholstery, first blot up as much of the urine as possible with paper towels or an old rag. Then mix a solution of 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts water in a spray bottle and spray onto affected area. Allow it to sit for several minutes before blotting again with paper towels or an old rag until all liquid has been absorbed. Finally, use baking soda to absorb any remaining moisture and vacuum after 30 minutes.

For tile or linoleum floors, start by blotting up any visible urine with paper towels or an old rag. Next mix 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide (3% solution) into 2 cups warm water in a spray bottle and spray onto affected area. Allow it to sit for several minutes before wiping away with a damp cloth and rinsing off with warm water until all residue is gone.

Cleaning pet urine stains doesn't have to be complicated! With these simple steps, even the nastiest stains will be gone in no time—leaving your furry friend's accident spot looking good as new! Whether you’re dealing with carpeting, upholstery, linoleum or tile floors—there’s something here that will help make cleanup easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy! Happy cleaning!
