  • white vinegar in a spray bottle. Or check the pet store for something for pet stains, I've used both. I have two stepsons, we've had the same problem as you.

  • Steaming it will make it stay in. Use ODOBAN. You can get it at Walmart or Sam's Club. My carpet & upholstery guys swear by it.

  • I like the stuff called Fabulous. It's cheap but it works sooo good. Another option is trying some of the enzyme cleaners for pet stains.

  • I use odoban, it is amazing. You can get it where the pp listed and also at home depot. It is great, not only for smells but for cleaning in general. You have to buy a big thing of it and dilute it. I use it as a daily cleaner, especially during flu season.

  • I was going to suggest Odoban, it comes as a concentrate or as a ready to use. Also, I got some stuff at target in the pet dept its supposed to take smells of of carpets, and it worked for my dog. It smells like oranges.
