4 steps to remove dog urine. This is a response to a comment that was left by Stephan. He wrote “no comment other than finding a solution to the dog peeing and the smell!! ” The following is a four step solution to the smell and also how to remove dog urine. The links will take you to posts that go into more detail about the steps.
Step one: Locate the problem areas. Step two: Clean as much of the urine residue out as you can. Step three: Treat the area and remaining urine residue with a one of the odor removal agents that work. Step four: Insure that the affected areas dry properly. The method of drying will vary depending on the type of product you are using. As you locate the problem areas try to assess how large the area is that is contaminated. You need a good idea of how much area you need to treat both in circumference and in depth. Example: Is it a 2 inch spot or a 12 inch or a 24 inch spot? Has it soaked through the carpet pad and into the wood floor? Or is it only in the face fibers of the carpet? If you do not treat all of the affected area you will not get complete odor removal. Use one of the quality products that is designed to counteract the smell. All good odor removal products have to come in contact with the urine and urine residue and they will eliminate the smell. Different type products work differently so follow the instructions for the one you are using. Some work immediately on contact and others need time to work on (digest) the urine. I will soon have a page added tho this blog of recommended professional products. These are products that have been available only to professionals that will now be made available to you. Watch for it. I hope this helps Stephan and anyone else who has a similar question.

She then later urinated in my bed…..Is there anyway to remove urine from these items or do I have to throw them out?. Then treat the areas with a good urine stain and odor removal product.
Please explain your question in more detail and I will be glad to try and help. Is it a dog that has urinated in your bed? If it white sheets that need the odor removed try washing with Clorox bleach. If there are items that can’t be bleached or the bleach does not do the job effectively I can recommend something stronger on urine odor but will not effect colors.
Uric acid contains non-soluble salt crystals which present the biggest challenge to removing urine from surfaces and fabrics.. The first two components can be washed away with ordinary cleaning and commercially-available urine odor products but the uric acid crystals are extremely insoluble and remain tightly bonded to the surface. After initial cleaning and drying with ordinary products it may appear that the problem is solved.
