Re: What products will remove dog wee stain from a...
Dog liquid waste turns to crystals when it dries,, the only way to get the crystals out is with hot water extraction. If you use too much water you run the risk of it getting into the padding or the backing of the carpet and then it smells till it dries out. You need to get a carpet shampoo or cleaner that has enzymes in it.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

HOW TO SPOT CLEAN A CARPET
I have a "furry family" of a dog and 2 cats who I love dearly. Unfortunately, my carpet has suffered from several "accidents" and "upset tummies". It is a challenge to find an effective cleaner that cleans the stain, reduces the odor in the carpet, and is reasonably priced.
In the past, I have tried commercial products that were both expensive and ineffective. I have also used vinegar mixed with water and, although it was effective, it did not achieve the results that I would have liked. So one day, I decided to mix a little scented fabric softener in with the vinegar and water and VOILA what a difference! It removed the stain and left the carpet soft and smelling fresh. It has become my preferred method of dealing with pet stains on the carpet.
If you decide to give this a try, be sure to test this solution on an inconspicuous place on your carpet to be sure it does not discolor or lighten it. So far, I have had only good results from its use.
To Spot Clean a small area:
Fill an empty clean spray bottle with equal parts of water and vinegar. Then add a capful of scented fabric softener to the bottle. Shake it up for 30 seconds.
Spray the stained area
Let it sit for 2 minutes and then spray a little more on it.
Rub the stain with a dry cloth until it disappears.
The vinegar odor will fade as it dries and helps to remove the foul smell
Let it dry and you will notice a nice fresh smell and your carpet will be soft.
Once you vacuum, you will have a hard time telling where the stain was.
I have actually used the mixture above in my Bissell Carpet Cleaning machine with good results. It is much less expensive than commercial carpet cleaning solutions. Be sure to read your machine manual or contact the manufacturer to make sure it does not affect its operation. So far my machine is tolerating it well.
This is a personal tip that I just wanted to share with others. I hope you find it useful.
Cold water on a clean cloth, blot with damp cloth, then with dry cloth, repeat, repeat, repeat until you do not see any red coming out. If you have a carpet cleaner flush it with lots of cold water sucking it up with your carper cleaner or extractor. A good professional carpet cleaner can prevent your spot from becoming a stain. Often you can use enzyme cleaners to remove blood but NOT on wool carpets.
These are usually quite durable. I use a fairly stiff brush with mild soap and water. If the carpet is good quality, you can rinse with a garden hose or even a pressure washer . Hang over a bathtub or outdoors to dry. Drying will take two or three days, but do not leave out in the sun longer than that. Professional cleaning is also available if you wish.
You can clean them with household units but even professionals have trouble with berber carpet because of its tight weave and usual inlaid patterns. Dry carpet cleaning between professional cleanings will help keep carpet looking new without staining. My suggestion is to use a dry carpet cleaning machine and then have a professional come in with hot water extract as often as every year depending on traffic. I sell the SEBO DUO machine you can see by clicking the link provided. http://vacuummedic.com/product.php?id=511
The old standby of glass cleaner should do the trick. Use a spray bottle, and spray a small 4x4 section at a time, let it sit for about 2min. , then wipe up with rags. Do NOT let it dry on the floor. You have a buildup of product on the floor. The pine cleaner has a small amount of oil in it and it builds up over time. For a good glass cleaner- I would suggest ZEP glass cleaner. For daily cleaning- I would suggest white vinegar 1 part vinegar to 3 parts HOT water. It will sanitize, and also remove salt stains from the floor left by winter boots and dog footprints.
Vacuum the carpet. Dampen a cloth with the cleaner or stain remover you want to use. Lay the cloth on the carpet for an hour, and then blot the damp area with a dry white cloth. If the cloth is stained with carpet dyes, test another cleaning product until you find one that does not make the carpet sample bleed.
Robert, I take care of that problem two ways.
First I take a very wet cotton towel and put it in the microwave for about 1 minute. After that time I remove it while wearing a GOOD pair of gloves, as you are dealing with steam. Go to the spot and rub the heck out of it with the cloth. You may have to repeat, but do NOT forget the gloves.
Also, there is a spray bottle product of a cleaner called Awsome.
I find it helps clean these spots as well.
