Whether it’s dog waste, cat waste or whatever, accidents happen; here are some ways to clean them up.
If the accident is not on carpet you are in luck, just use paper towels and a wipe to pick up the problem.
If your pet goes on the carpet… It can be slightly trickier to clean up. First, pick up as much as you can with a paper or cloth towel. Then spray the area, I like the Woolite rug stick for this myself. Lastly, put down carpet refresher and vacuum the area.
If your pet goes on your clothes… Take them off, wash them immediately and be sure you use a good pre-wash. You may want to wash twice or let the item soak. If your pet goes on something you can not wash in the machine, like your suitcase, If you can catch the accident in time you are fortunate. Use water and thoroughly rinse the spot out. The unfortunate aspect of this is if the stain sits to long the best thing to do may be to just throw this away.
You should also figure out their motives… Did you leave them in the apartment for too long? Move their litter box? Focus and give more attention to your pet when you notice that they are ready to release.
Here are some more methods for home training your pet. Remember, if you don’t catch them doing it, then don’t punish them for it. It would be great if we could teach our pets Do-It-Yourself (DIY) clean up tricks, right?
