3 Ways to Get Rid of Pet Odor

3 Ways to Get Rid of Pet Odor

Although we love our furry friends, pets can leave behind some unwanted odors in your home. From pet beds, to litter boxes and unexpected accidents, it can be tricky to pet-owners to eliminate these pungent scents. While some conventional cleaners are able to do the job, they aren’t always safe to use around our animals. To cut back on foul stenches, we put together a few ways to help pet owners keep up with their pets!

Sprinkle Baking Soda on Smelly Areas

Baking soda is a natural odor absorber, so if you are having trouble lifting out bad smells from your rugs or carpet, sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on the affected area. Leave it overnight and vacuum it up the following day. 

Wash Litter Box with Vinegar

Litter boxes can be tricky because plastic actually absorbs the odors around it. If regular all-purpose cleaners aren’t quite cutting it for you, you may need something a little bit more intense. In addition to daily maintenance, we recommend rinsing your cat’s litter box with vinegar every couple weeks to keep out the stench and the box fresh. Not only will you have better smelling home, your cat will thank you too. 

Vinegar and Water 

Accidents are generally unexpected, but as long as you are prepared, you should be able to tackle the issue with ease. The best way to clean up any accident is to act as quickly as possible. Having a spray bottle with equal parts of water and vinegar on hand will help you deodorize the area before the smell sets in. We recommend dousing the area and letting it set for a few minutes before wiping it up. This will clean up any unwanted spots and lift out any reeking odors.
