Whether you’re a dog mom or a cat dad, we all love our pets.
What we don’t love is the stench of urine they leave around the house.
Luckily for us, there’s a powerful stink eliminator inside our cupboards.
Baking soda is a natural odor neutralizer.
In this article, I’ll show you how to make a simple baking soda spray to neutralize the pee smell made by our loving pets.
Let’s get started.
What you’ll need:
1 tablespoon baking soda
2 cups of water
Bowl or microwaveable container
Optional: 2 drops essential oil
1. Clean the spot/item where your pet peed. Make sure you give it a good wiping.
2. Pour 2 cups of water into the bowl. Add a tablespoon of baking soda. You can add essential oils if you want (I like peppermint). Mix well with a spoon.
3. Transfer the mixture to a spray bottle. Use a funnel if the bottle opening is narrow. Shake well.
4. Find the spots where your pet peed and spray away. Spray the same location at least two times per day.
