How to remove pet urine from your carpet
In order to remove smelly pet urine from your carpet, blot urine with an absorbent paper towel by pressing down with your heel. Standing on one foot and doing this for 3 or 4 times will allow you to soak up the urine from the carpet in the process. After you have removed the urine, spray the affected area with a solution of water and white vinegar and leave it in to dry. This will neutralise the acid in the urine that could discolour and distort your carpet’s fibres.
