  1. Soak up wet dog urine stains

    If the dog urine stain is still wet, soak it up using paper towels or a cotton cloth.

  2. Apply a vinegar and water solution to the stain

    Mix a solution of 50-percent white vinegar and 50-percent water, and pour it on the urine stain. Do not pour too much or you will make the carpet soggy. Use a scrubbing brush to work the solution deep into the carpet. The vinegar neutralizes the ammonia in the dog urine. Blot the stain using paper towels. Apply into it as much pressure as you can.

  3. Sprinkle baking soda on the stain

    After the area dries, sprinkle one or two handfuls of baking soda over the stain.

  4. Mix together a hydrogen peroxide and dishwashing detergent solution

    Mix one-half cup of 3-percent hydrogen peroxide with 1 teaspoon of dishwashing detergent. Apply the hydrogen peroxide and dishwashing detergent solution to the stained area, vigorously scrubbing with a scrubbing brush.
