We all love dogs. After all, a dog is a man’s best friend. So, if you have a man’s best friend wagging at your feet day-in and day-out, and you use one of our grass pads that is made for indoor use; you’re probably wondering how you can cut back on the smell that gives away that there is a dog living in the residence. You know the odor we’re talking about, the musty pup, hair shedding, wet dog, puppy breath odor. It’s very recognizable to guests who do not own any dogs, but as dog owners ourselves, we have become immune. So, how can you get rid that smell in your home besides upgrading to a grass pad made from all natural ingredients or saying farewell to your favorite furry friend? How to get rid of dog smells like the musty pup, hair shedding, wet dog, puppy breath odor: Baking Soda Use baking soda by itself. First, make sure you stock up on baking soda. Luckily baking soda is pretty cheap, which is awesome because it’s a natural odor remedy. So, just like how a dog is man’s best friend, baking soda is man’s best friend for removing all pet odors; it’s a win-win! All you have to do is open the baking soda box and leave it on the counter. However, if you’re a dog owner who treats your pet just like a prince or princess (and allow them on the couch), you may be better off sprinkling baking soda on your furniture, letting it sit, then vacuuming or wiping it clean. The same goes for urine, especially when you’re training your pup to use the grass pad from Doggie Lawn. If they have an accident on your carpet, a great way to get the stench out is by soaking up the urine with a towel, then proceeding to sprinkle baking soda on the area as soon as possible. Allow the area to become dry/damp with the baking soda on it, then gently pat the area with a clean towel. Once patted and the area has dried completely, vacuum up the baking soda. Use baking soda in a spray. Sometimes there’s not enough sprinkling of baking soda that can soak up the musty pup, hair shedding, wet dog, puppy breath odor. So, if the smell in your home is this serious, try neutralizing the fabrics on couches, carpet, blankets, etc., with a good ol’ fashioned, do-it-yourself baking soda spray. By mixing 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 2 cups of water, you’ll have a baking soda spray that minimizes, if not, gets rid of all the dog smells you have in your home. Feel free to spritz this spray in the area, on carpet, rugs, furniture, pillows, blankets and more. Learn more about Doggie Lawn!
