Use Baking Soda
If you have a dog that has an accident on your patio, there are some steps you can take to get rid of the dog’s urine smell. The first thing to do is clean up the urine with soap and water. Then, use baking soda to absorb the odor.
Baking soda is another great option for getting rid of dog urine odor. It’s inexpensive and easy to find.
Baking soda absorbs moisture, so it works well in absorbing the moisture from dog urine. This helps break down the ammonia in the urine so that it doesn’t smell as strongly.
You can sprinkle baking soda on top of the stain or mix it with some water and spray on the stain. Let it sit until it completely dries up, then vacuum or sweep up any leftover baking soda residue.
Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide
Mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Rub on the carpet or patio where the dog has urinated. Let sit for a few minutes and then rinse with water. The enzymes in the hydrogen peroxide will help eliminate odor-causing bacteria, while the baking soda absorbs odors.
Pour ammonia on a cloth or sponge and wipe down the area where the dog has urinated. Ammonia is a strong odor that can overpower other smells, which makes it ideal for eliminating urine odors.
Wet Paper Towel
Absorb excess urine with a wet paper towel or rag. If you have excess urine on your patio, place several layers of paper towels on top of each other until they are saturated with liquid, then wring out any excess liquid from them before placing them in an airtight container in your refrigerator overnight to allow them to dry out completely.
When they’re ready to use again, simply microwave them for thirty seconds to warm up before using them as absorbent pads again.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
The mixture of baking soda and vinegar neutralizes the ammonia in the urine. This will help remove the odor from your patio.
Mix baking soda with vinegar. Put this mixed solution in a spray bottle and spray it on the affected area. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, then scrub it off using a scrub brush or sponge.
How to Get Urine Smell Out of Concrete Patio
Urine is not just a nuisance, but it can also cause concrete to crack and deteriorate. To prevent this from happening, you must clean up and remove the urine as soon as possible. This article will show you how to get the urine smell out of a patio with natural cleaners.
Step 1 – Clean the Concrete Patio
Using a plastic scrub brush or broom with stiff bristles, scrub the area until all of the urine has been removed from the concrete. If any stains are remaining after this step, proceed to step 2.
Step 2 – Spray Vinegar Solution
Spray vinegar directly on the stain using a spray bottle. Allow it to sit until it dries completely and then rinses with water. Repeat if necessary until the stain disappears completely.
How to Remove Pet Urine from Concrete
Pet urine can be difficult to remove from concrete, but it is possible. The key is using the right cleaning product and following the directions carefully. This article will help you find the best way to clean pet urine out of concrete.
Step 1 – Clean Up the Mess
Take any soiled items that can be washed in your washing machine and soak them in hot water with a few drops of dish soap. Rinse thoroughly in cold water to remove any soap residue and place them in the dryer or hang them outside to air dry.
If your pet urinated on something that cannot be washed, such as curtains or furniture, place them in a plastic bag or box and store them away from where you are cleaning until they can be laundered later on. This will prevent the odor from spreading.
Step 2 – Remove as Much Urine as Possible
Use an enzyme cleaner to break down any remaining urine molecules still clinging to your concrete surface. These cleaners are available at most home improvement stores and are formulated specifically for breaking down organic matter, including urine stains on concrete.
Apply the enzyme cleaner directly to the stained area using a sponge mop or cloth and allow it to sit for 15 minutes before scrubbing off.
