Help, Ive tried everything!

So we got a puppy in Jan. We struggled potty training for awhile. at first we tried using a box indoors for him since thats what the breeder did. It didnt work so well. He used certain spots on the carpet a lot! Well now he pretty much goes outside with just a few accidents now, and usually just poops in those spots now. pees maybe only once a week on the carpet, and its usually my fault for not be able to take him out. i CANNOT get the smell out of the carpet...esp in 1 certain spot in the kitchen!! Its driving me crazy! Ive tried all the spays. Ive sprinkled baking soda over it (he jsut went on top of it). I tried the perfume powders. vinager spray, I even rented a steam cleaner from the store and did that...AND IT STILL SMELLS! anyone know how to get the smell out PERMANETLY (changing the carpet is not an option, tho I wish it was!) The carpet is very flat cuz its in the kitchen!

  • sprinkle baking soda and then wet well with white vingear (or just make a paste). You should mix in some tea tree oil, too, as an antibacterial.

  • Get some ordor bon... spray on the area (soaking them) let dry on it's own. This should remove the smell. I use it all the time I have 3 cats.

  • In the pet store there is a product called Nature's Miracle. It is all natural & safe to use around pets & children and is safe for most surfaces (I've used it on carpet, cushions, tile, linoleum, etc. and never had a problem, but best to test a small, inconspicuous area first). Nature's Miracle is an enzyme-based product and the enzymes "eat" the residue that is causing the smell. Since it is an old stain, you'll need to apply liberally and let it set for a bit before scrubbing the spot and soaking it up (use a carpet cleaner to vacuum up the product, if you can). Make sure you apply to an area larger than the original stain b/c it has probably spread underneath, especially if it is in an area where you walk often & put pressure on. Oh, and you can use the Nature's Miracle to clean up any organic stain like pet accidents, oil, blood, vomit, etc. It doesn't have a harsh chemical smell, either.

  • I would see about getting a professional carpet cleaner to come in. I have the all and wonderful Bissell Steam Vac and it does wonders for me HOWEVER my kids playroom needs to be done professionally. Uggghhhh!
    Good luck!
