8 Natural Homemade Cleaners to Remove Pet Stains


Kacey BradleyPets are part of the family, which means they'll hang out when you're having fun and sometimes make a mess or two on your carpet that requires a bit of cleanup.

If you'd prefer not to have a chemical-based stain remover in your home, there are all-natural alternatives you can use. You'll find the right one for your pet's mess and never have to use chemicals again.


1. Vinegar and Baking Soda Spray

You've probably seen people leave an open container of baking soda in their fridge. It erases any unpleasant odors, and it'll do the same for your carpet.

Baking soda alone won't be able to remove stains, though. It'll just take away the smell. That's where vinegar comes in. Vinegar is mostly used for stain removal in clothes, but it works just as well on carpets too.

The acetic acid in vinegar lifts stains from any material, and the baking soda will take care of what you can't see. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with one cup of white distilled vinegar and spray this mixture on stains.
