Cleaning Pet Urine From Your Carpet

Clean pet urine from the carpet: First, blot up what
you can with paper towels. Mix one teaspoon mild
dish-washing detergent in one cup warm water, dip
a clean towel in the liquid and, working from outside
in, dab at stain. Do not overwet. Rinse with fresh
water and blot dry. Next, add on-third cup white
vinegar with two-thirds cup water and dab on stain.
Rinse with water; blot until dry. Once area is totally
dry (after at least 24 hours), sprinkle entire carpet
with baking soda or rug deodorizer. Vacuum after
a few hours.
