How do I get the aweful smell off of my tile???

OK so Tuesday my dog passed away. For 2 days before he was laying on the floor in front of my front door and he did not move so he peed and whatnot on the floor. Ofcourse I cleaned up what was there but then when he passed and we moved him we relized that there was a bunch of "mess" on the floor.I cleaned everything up as best as I could at that moment(mind you I just had to move my dead dog) So now I still can not get this nasty fishy smell off of my floor and I can not afford to get new tiles right now. What shoudl I do I have tried bleach and mopping it with the swiffer pads with febreeze and nothing works...Please help!!!!!!

  • I'm sorry about your puppy.
    Try cleaning it with white, distilled vinegar.

    You can also go to the petstore and buy a product called Natures Miracle. It'll break down whatever enzymes that are causing the smell.
