Pee-Pee (scent) remover :)
I wanted to share with you, my discovery of urine smell remover. This isn’t a pretty post, but as you know, if you have little ones; there are sure to be pee-pee accidents.
I actually mixed a bottle of this for the first time, after our new puppy used our shag rug as a toilet. I was not even about to give up the cozy area rug without a fight, which I was determined to win. I read up on homemade remedies to cure this issue, and this combination actually did the trick very well! There is no evidence of the puppy pee smell, at all!
If you have a dog with issues, or a little one being potty trained, and has an accident, this is a sure-way to rid the urine smell. As you may know, we have 3 boys…and well, if you have a boy, you know how difficult it can be to ensure their aimers are hitting the water in the bowl, and not the floor. Yuck!
This stuff also works miracles around the toilet on the floor, for those who have little boys. (or big boys who still don’t get it.) 🙂 After the usual cleaning in the bathroom, just squirt a little where you suspect you need it, and let it air-dry. If you spray a lot, let it soak in a bit, then wipe up excess.
I am a cleaning fanatic, and I want not only everything to be clean, but to smell clean also. It’s a big one with me. My sniffer can’t handle bad smells! (which reminds me of when we first moved in to our antique home.) More on this later:)
Directions for mixing
Equal parts of alcohol and witch hazel (1/2 and 1/2)
A splash of Tea tree oil. You will need a couple of splashes, if you are making enough to store, and use later. Pour into spray bottle.
A little Tea tree oil goes a long way—and is very strong. The smell does fade after a while, the amount I use fades within 20 minutes, and I use a couple of splashes. If you plan to use it in a big area, you might want to let it air out.
*When needed, soak up urine with a paper towel, then spray. Repeat after dried, if needed.
I hope you able to salvage your beloved area rugs!! Or whatever it is, that your puppy, or youngin’ decides to set their sites on.
