Whether you just got a new puppy, have an ailing dog, or a well trained senior buddy, it’s inevitable. At one point, you are going to find dog poop on the carpet. Cleaning dog poop in the yard is nasty enough, let alone tackling the job on the carpet! The answer to the following question will determine the best solution to cleaning up the poopy mess in the carpet:
“Is the poop solid and formed or closer to diarrhea and very loose?”
Highlighted below are two options on how to clean dog poop from the carpet.
Solid Dog Poop on the Carpet
The best way to resolve this issue is with some additional potty training, but like all of us dog lovers and owners know, they will have an accident at one time or another. We want clean, no smell, germ-free solutions, and white vinegar can produce all three results. Cleaning the mess as soon as possible, too, will help reduce staining and certainly aide to remove germs and bacteria from the carpet thoroughly.
White vinegar is used as a cleaning solution all over the house and is also known to neutralize the PH in dog poop as it dries, reducing the stain browning, the odor, and it kills germs!
Here’s how to make the most of white vinegar when cleaning up dog poop from the carpet:
- Pick up the poop
- Mix a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spritz the area. Blot with paper toweling
- Spray the spot with hydrogen peroxide once it’s clean to assist with the removal of the stain as well.
