Even the best trained cats/dogs can have accidents. My two cats are pretty well trained, but one of them peed on the rug this weekend, so accidents can and do happen!

Don't worry, it's relatively easy to get rid of the stain and odor left behind after an accident. There are numerous methods for stain and odor removal, but I'm going to detail the method that I found to work best for me. Keep reading for the steps!

You will need white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, liquid hand soap, and baking soda.

Step 1. Blot the effected area with paper towels to absorb as much of the moisture as possible. (if the spot is already dry, just skip this step)

Step 2. Make a mixture of equal parts water to vinegar. Pour the mixture over the soiled area to soak. Let it dry.

Step 3. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the spot.

Step 4. Next, create a mixture of four parts hydrogen peroxide to one part water. Lightly rub this mixture using a brush (an old toothbrush works well) or your fingers (gloves are highly suggested).

Step 5. After the spot dries, vacuum the area.

If the smell persists, you can repeat this process as many times as necessary.
