Best Stain and Odor Remover!!!

I am sure that everyone else's little Darlings are trained and never leave spots, but Rolex seems to think he needs to decorate every room with ugly yellow stains, after buying everything in the stores and even some that I ordered, I found at Target, "Arm and Hammer,Oxy Strength, Pet Odor & Stain Remover" The Best---No more stains, thank heavens, our carpet has been polka dotted since we got him, now, even the old ones are gone. Hope
it works as well for you all.

I've been using Simple Solution for the odor, but my cousin said she just uses white vinegar and it works. I use Resolve carpet cleaner for the stains.

Ooops - this message has been sitting on my desktop for the last couple of hours.
--------



Nature's Miracle is good, but so is Simple Solution, for breaking down the scent and the urine. I like keeping a couple of bottles on hand of Simple Solution because it smells nice for the human residents.

If you have light carpet, you might want to consider straight hydrogen peroxide for staining. I was over at a breeder's house that has more dogs than I can ever dream of having and they used straight peroxide to clean a urine spot and their carpet had no stains at all. I've used it several times in the last couple of years on my cream Berber carpet and it does work great.

However, I think you want a solution like Nature's Miracle or Simple Solution first to get rid of that scent that draws them back.

Thanks.

I wil keep using the Simple Solution.........well, hopefully, she won't pee on the carpet again! LOL

But I do have OTHER stains on my cream Berber...mostly from my husband and red wine. Maybe I'll get out the peroxide today on those.

I am not sure if peroxide will work on red wine, but have you tried Wine Out? That stuff is great for red wine. I know exactly what you mean about husbands and red wine!

I've seen that, but I need to buy it! We are overdue for a carpet cleaning, but something always pops up, and expense or scheduling issue of some sort.

Where do you get the Wine out? I think I've seen it in the Wine Enthusiast...anywhere else you know of? They should be showering us with catalogs soon over the holidays.
My husband cannot drink wine without spilling it. lol Of course, we are "red wine" people. HIS stains are far worse than Gucci's.

I need to be training HIM, ehh?

Do you have Bed, Bath & Beyond? They always have Wine Out in stock there. The other place is that you can drive to most any wine shop in Napa. There's a reason to go buy more red wine and hit some tasting rooms too. Hey, I'm going this weekend...

Lucky YOU!

I LOVE red wine, but can't drink it often. I had some fantabulous Caymus at the Casino last weekend. YUM. My husband likes to look for the 97' (I think) Opus One. And there are a few small vinyards that we always keep an eye out for at the restaraunts around here.

We often talk about doing a Napa trip That would be SO much fun.

We do have a BBB, I'll have to swing by there next time I go to the Fabric store which is close by. I love that store!!

I like the spray version of "Goof Off" (Not to close around the dogs but for everything else it seems to work when other products fail)

Sally,((Oliver)) Comet and Pennie too!

Funny you mention Opus One, because that is where we are going. We were invited to an event, and I don't even know what it is... probably a new release or something to do with harvest. I should probably find out.

Michele, is Resolve the one that comes in red packaging? I have a steam cleaner that I use for my heavy traffic areas and just ran out of something in red that was the BEST for cleaning large areas. My Home Depot only had one other brand and I don't like it as much.
