This homemade cleaner is excellent for safely and effectively removing stains (from pets or anything else) from carpeted areas in your home!
Why choose homemade pet stain remover over a store-bought option?
The answer is simple: to eliminate as many toxins as possible in your home! While you don’t have control over everything that your family is exposed to, you do have a good amount of control over the products used in your own home. Using safer home products results in a safer environment for yourself and those you love most!
Besides the safety reasons above, making your own cleaner tends to be a lot more cost-effective than buying a new bottle at the grocery store each time you need it. There is an upfront supply cost, but you’ll have enough of everything to make many, many batches of cleaner.
Is this pet stain remover also a pet stain and odor remover?
It isn’t, BUT we do have an all-natural room and surface deodorizer that can totally be sprayed onto the cleaned (once-stained) spot for a nice scented boost!
What are the ingredients for this pet stain remover?
Here’s what you’ll need for a homemade pet stain (or any stain) remover:
- Branch Basics Oxygen Boost – to start, you’ll need enough oxygen boost to sprinkle onto the stain.
- Water – you’ll also need 1 ½ cups of water to add to a spray bottle.
- Branch Basics Concentrate – a ¼ cup of Branch Basics Concentrate will be added to the spray bottle with the water.
How to make the best pet stain remover?
The Oxygen Boost itself doesn’t need to be prepped at all, but you will need to go ahead and add the Concentrate and water to a spray bottle. Then, just screw the lid on, and give the bottle a good shake!
How to use this pet stain remover?
To use this stain remover, simply…
- Sprinkle the Oxygen Boost – sprinkle the Oxygen Boost over the stain.
- Spray and agitate – spray the Concentrate/water mixture over the Oxygen Boost-covered stain, and use a washcloth to agitate (or scrub, depending on how bad the stain is) the now-dampened stain until it’s gone.
- Let dry and vacuum – let the carpet dry and then vacuum the area to get all of the residual Oxygen Boost up!
Best way to store pet stain remover?
Store both the tub of Oxygen Boost and bottle of Concentrate and water wherever you store the rest of your cleaning products. I store mine in the (baby-proofed) cabinet underneath the kitchen sink!
How many stains is this pet stain remover good for?
A LOT. I don’t have an exact number for you (that’ll depend on how much of each product you use each time), but it’ll definitely last you for many, many stains. As far as the expiration of your products goes, the Concentrate (unmixed) will last for about 2 years and once it’s mixed with water, it’ll last for about a year.
