Getting Pet Stains off of Linoleum
If your dog or cat has urinated on your linoleum tiles, it’s usually very obvious. The urine yellows the tile very quickly and you may worry that you’ll never be able to get it off. It takes several rounds of scrubbing with different chemicals, but you can get the urine stains off of your tile.
What You Will Need:
- Vinegar solution consisting of 1 cup of vinegar, 2 tsps. of dishwashing detergent, and warm water in a large (gallon) bucket
- Soft bristle brush
- Water and baking soda paste (1 to 1 ratio)
- Abrasive sponge
- Rubbing alcohol
- Several cloths
- You’ll need to clean up the area first; the less particles on the floor the better. Sweep and mop the floor well before you start scrubbing the stained area.
- Take the vinegar solution and scrub the area with a soft bristle brush, and then rinse. If this doesn’t seem to do anything, go to step 3.
- Take the baking soda paste and spread it over the affected area, allowing it to sit for up to a half an hour. Then, take your abrasive sponge and scrub vigorously. Wipe dry with one of the cloths.
- Take another cloth, this one soaked with rubbing alcohol, and scrub the area vigorously. Allow it to air dry, and the stain should be gone. If this does not work, consult a professional floor cleaner for assistance in eliminating the pet stains on your tile.
