Cleaning 101: Pet Stain Removal

It's not enough to remove pet stains: You need to erase odor-causing particles, too! Discover the best pet spot remover to get the job done!

Written by Tenley Haraldson.

You love your furry friends but could do without the drool, pee, poop, smells, and mystery stains.

Stop relying on cleaning products that contain chemicals like trichloroethylene (TCE), sulfates (e.g. SLS, SLES), formaldehyde, and synthetic fragrances. When you choose Puracy Pet Stain Remover, you'll discover a 99.52% natural formula that eliminates any pet spot and odor for a clean, fresh-smelling home.

Why Puracy Pet Stain Remover Is So Effective

During the R&D process, our team of biochemists determined that the majority of pet stain carpet cleaners were incredibly diluted, overwhelmingly fragranced, and filled with unnecessary (and potentially harmful) ingredients.

Our team was determined to formulate the best cleaner for pet stains that could be safely used on all washable fabrics. The result? Not only is this product 99.5% natural, but it's also the most concentrated cat and dog stain remover on the market.

Fun Fact: With more than 30% active ingredients, our pet spot remover is 10X more concentrated than most of our competitors (some only contain 3% active ingredients)!

Why Enzyme Cleaners Are Necessary for Pet Stains

No matter what sort of mess you've got, there are two problems to solve:
  1. The stain itself
  2. The smell caused by the stain particles. Even minuscule traces of urine can have pets returning to the scene of the crime.

The 5 plant-based enzymes in our Pet Stain & Odor Remover are microscopic proteins that feast on a huge variety of organic stain particles (and their subsequent odors).

Each enzyme produces a different natural chemical reaction when it comes into contact with certain stains. And when they get deep into fibers, these ingredients break down offenders until they’re completely eliminated. After they're finished munching and snacking, their job is done: No more stain, no more smell.

Fun Fact: If you’re using a non-enzyme cleaner, you’re probably just temporarily covering up the odor – and your pet's too smart for that.

How to Remove Set-in Pet Stains

If the mess happened more than an hour ago, fully saturate it with Puracy Pet Stain & Odor Remover. To get the plant-based enzymes deep within upholstery fibers, combine 1 ounce with 4 ounces of warm water (1:4). Pour it over the affected area.

Many stain particles are invisible to the naked eye. Make sure you’re treating the entire mess, we recommend using a UV flashlight in a dark room. Black lights will show urine due to its high levels of phosphorus.

1. Add Pressure & Wait

Place something heavy – book, brick, or cast iron skillet – in a sturdy, clear plastic bag. Don’t use thin, generic kinds: They puncture easily, can damage the item inside, and the ink can even transfer color onto surfaces. Let the enzymatic cleaner sit for at least 8 hours (or overnight).

2a. Break out Your Stain Remover Machine

If you’re a parent or pet owner, a carpet cleaning machine is the handiest way to keep carpet and upholstery looking their best. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to thoroughly remove all of the stain remover and stain particles with warm water.

Best of all, there’s enough cleaning product in your stain remover so you won’t have to use carpet shampoo.

2b. If You Don’t Have a Carpet Cleaner...

While we recommend using a carpet cleaner (most hardware stores offer hourly rentals), you can remove pet stains by hand. It may take some effort but you need to totally remove stain remnants. Unless, of course, you want smells to linger.

  • No one wants to touch gross pet stains. Use gloves.
  • Fill a small bucket with warm water, saturate a clean microfiber towel in the water, and gently wring it out (it can be slightly wet).
  • Press the wet towel into the stain, gently rocking back and forth (don’t scrub!). Remember: You’re trying to flush fresh water into the affected area while absorbing waste into the towel.
  • Wring out the towel into another empty bowl or bucket, then saturate your towel in the clean water to repeat the process. Keep doing this until you’ve soaked up all of the excess liquid.
  • Depending on the size of the stain, you may need to switch to another clean microfiber towel.

How to Remove Fresh Pet Stains

If the pet stain is less than an hour old, follow the same instructions outlined above. However, you’ll only need to let the stain remover solution sit on the stain for about one hour before rinsing it from the surface with a carpet cleaning machine.
