we're potty training a puppy and he hasnt quite got the hang of it - he's been trying to "hide" his accidents on the carpet by our couch - i've tried lemon juice and lots of water... and scented the mixture with some EO and it smells great for a while. Somehow though, the smell seems to creep back in which is telling me one of two things: i'm either not getting it very clean or the puppy is going a lot more than we think.

what would you reccommend to get the smell out? (the carpet is light beige)

We've had great success with Nature's Miracle. It's enzyme based, there are different versions/different brands of the same stuff, but it's excellent.

Follow the directions, it will take any bodily fluid out of fabric/carpet (I think we've had to get out most of them).

With children and pets we buy it by the gallon and keep a spray bottle upstairs and downstairs.

*not that you asked, but crate train the puppy.
he should always be within your line of sight until he's trained--this cuts down on accidents of all sorts.

Another thumbs-up to Nature's Miracle. It also works wonders on the greenish stains from dog vomit (which isn't green itself). I use it on dog messes, food spills, and I'm sure I'll use it on kid messes.


Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.

Another vote for Nature's Miracle, for years now, after working in a pet shop, and now being owned by 2 dogs!
