If you have read some of our previous blogs, you know by now that we are big fans of Vinegar. It is antibacterial, anti fungal, leaves behind no residue, and is 100% green. If you have pets, you know that from time to time your little friend will leave a little mess behind, and Vinegar is especially useful for removing the stain and killing all bacteria and potential viruses.
All you need is 1 cup of vinegar per quart of warm water. You can use it straight from a bucket, or put it in a spray bottle and save what’s left for Around The House Cleaning. Pick up whatever “gifts” your furry friend left as much as you can, and blot the area with a dry cloth. If you choose to use a clean cloth, get it wet with the vinegar solution and generously dab onto the mess. If you are using a spray bottle, simply spray the area until soaked. Let it sit a few minutes, then simply blot the area with a new, clean cloth until the area is clean. Let dry, and repeat if needed.
The newer the mess, the easier it is to clean, and will usually all come up with one application. For older stains, like under the bed or the back of the closet that you were just cleaning out, it may take several tries to get it all out, and it would be useful to let the vinegar solution sit for a few hours. But rest assure, once the area is clean, it will be safe to the touch, and the money you save by using vinegar as opposed to carpet cleaner will make it impossible to be upset with your pet.
