Tips For Cleaning Rabbit Urine Stains
Rabbits can make for excellent and fun pets. Most rabbits, after some time and effort, can be potty trained to use only their litter box when they need to go to the restroom. Accidents will happen, however, and we all know how frustrating it can be to discover a rabbit urine stain on your carpet. On top of being unsightly, rabbit urine stains are highly odorous and can make your house a significantly less clean and inviting place. This article will provide a few tips on how to effectively deal with persistent and lingering rabbit urine stains.
One common homemade solution for cleaning up a rabbit urine stain is to concoct a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar. First, blot and absorb as much of the rabbit urine as is possible. Then, apply your vinegar and water solution to the affected area. Allow the solution to set in and then continue to blot the area. Once you notice the stain and odor beginning to dissipate, apply more water to the area and continue to blot. Do your best to completely get rid of all of the urine smell, as well as the vinegar scent (rabbits don’t like the smell of vinegar!).
If the water and vinegar method fails to completely get rid of the unsightly stain and foul odor, you can always try some patented cleaning products that are known to be highly effective and convenient, such as nature’s miracle.
Remember, before you attempt to clean an area using any solution, whether homemade or patented product, always do a spot test on a remote area of your carpeting. This ensures that you will not damage your carpeting in a highly visible area. Follow these tips and you should be well on your way to keeping your carpeting, clothing or furniture free from unsightly and odorous stains caused by rabbit urine.
