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.

Let’s get started.

What you’ll need:

3 Tips to Minimize Pet Urine Odor in Your Home

  1. Clean the spot/item where your pet peed right away. The urine smell will be hard to remove if you let it soak.
  2. For dog parents, take your dogs outside for a potty break after they eat and drink. Also, consider training your dog where to pee.
  3. For cat parents, always make sure the kitty litter box is clean and odor-free. Cats don’t like doing their business on a smelly litter box. Here’s an article about using baking soda to deodorize cat litter boxes if you’re interested.
