How To Get Rid Of Pet Stains On Carpet

Hello Lovelies, how has your weekend been? Mine, not so great. I've been dealing with a stomach bug for about a week now and spend the entire Saturday in bed! YIKES, that's the worse, isn't it? 

 So while we were on vacation our "Senior" Newfoundland Bruce had a diarrhea accident on the carpet in the bonus room. BIG DAWGS, BIG MESSES!!! Our House-Sitter could not get all the stains out, so by the time we got back we had 2 yellow stains the size of  fists right smack in the middle of the room. I shampooed the carpet with my Hoover several times like a mad women, but no luck. The stains had set, being that is was now a good 10 days after the fact. We tried about every carpet cleaner on the shelf including Spot Shot, Proxy Clean, Laundry stain remover.... No Luck!
But here is what did work....GOOD OLE VINEGAR AND BAKING SODA

 So today I want to share this awesome cleaning tip for "pet stains on carpet" that I found on the internet. Yes, yes, I know, I know....very boring stuff ...but pin it now and one day you will be happy you got this info ! LOL...
  


STEP BY STEP PICS 
Here is one of the stains, it was about the size of a large fist

 The miracle cure....white vinegar and baking soda
 
Pour enough vinegar on carpet to soak the stain, 
then sprinkle baking soda on top


Cover area with plate and let it sit for 1 to 2 days. 
Vacuum up baking soda. That's it!!!!
 
I took Before and After pictures on different days,

and here is our sweet old Bruce, pushing 11 1/2 years old.....wow....that's old for a big guy!

Take care everyone...until next time
