If you’ve tried everything and still can’t remove that nasty dog urine stain from your hardwood floor, don’t give up. And don’t worry; you don’t have to get the floor refinished. Just follow these steps:
What you need:
- Murphy’s soap or similar hardwood floor cleaner
- Nature’s Miracle Dog Urine Stain & Odor Remover
- Hydrogen Peroxide Solution (3%)
- Cotton balls and/or small art paint brush
- Clean the surface as much as possible with a good hardwood floor cleaner like Murphy’s Soap. This will probably lighten the stain a bit.
- Apply Nature’s Miracle Dog Stain and Odor Remover. Spray and wait 10 minutes before wiping off. This uses a natural enzyme formula that breaks down the odor.
- Let stained area dry over night. This allows the wood grain to absorb all the enzymes and then completely dry.
- Apply hydrogen peroxide to stained surface. Dab a cotton ball or dip a small paint brush soaked in hydrogen peroxide and gently dab stained area. Let dry over night.
- Repeat applying hydrogen peroxide once daily to urine stain until it fades away.
This method of removing the stain is so gradual and gentle, it allows it to fade away without damaging the hardwood floor. Depending on the darkness of the stain, you may have to keep applying hydrogen peroxide every day for a few weeks.
Some people may find that cotton balls work easier with a bigger stained areas. Yet, if the stain is small or in a narrow area, a paint brush is easier to control without harming the rest of the floor.
