All-Natural Pet Stain Cleaning Tip

No Nature's Miracle? Try This All-Natural Method Instead

I can't rave enough about the wonders of Nature's Miracle when potty training or cleaning pup's playthings. However, truthfully, I haven't stocked a bottle since my pet was a wee babe since he's got the peeing thing down pat. However, many dogs can have a repeat problem with stuff coming out the other end.

Yesterday morning, my poor pooch threw up on his bed and then hid in my bedroom, looking as embarrassed as this doxie. Since I didn't want to deal with laundry right before rushing to work, but also didn't want to let the stain (and smell) set in, I went into my kitchen and grabbed two staples.

Instead of tap water, I scrubbed the area with a small amount of club soda and let it dry while taking a shower. When I got out, I sprinkled the spot with baking soda and headed to work, crating my pup. When I got home, I used my handy Dyson Animal to immediately vacuum up all the excess powder before letting North back in. Good as new and stink-free, too.

I don't stock club soda either but if it helps with stains i might just start! One of my dogs eats fast and occasionally throws up as a result. usually in the morning too! I'm looking forward to trying your home remedy!

Hmm... I will have to try that although I never stock club soda in my house. Do you love your Dyson Animal? I got one last christmas and I love it. The people who lived in our house before us had 3 large dogs and even though I had vacuumed and rug scrubbed when I moved into it, it was amazing what the Dyson sucked out. Not that we don't vacuum ever other day or so to begin with. I thought it was removing my dogs' fur and when I looked, it was fur from the previous dogs that had really been embedded into the carpet. Amazing!
