Question That smell

Need help with any low tech solutions for removing pet orders from carpets and leather.

Baking soda might help after a thorough cleaning

Baking soda might help do what... are you talking about the boxes that are put into refrigerators?

Baking soda absorbs odors. Sprinkle it over the carpets or seats and then vacuum it up later.

By the way, I've had 'That Smell' by Lynyrd Skynyrd stuck in my head all day now. Thanks.

oak tree you're in my way... kind of disappointed that I got one suggestion, I know I have to try and clean every square inch but in the past this has not been enough. Masking doesn't work... and I don't have an ozone machine. I was also told that distilled white vinegar works well for ammonia producing smells.

Vinegar does work as well, but then it smells like vinegar.

I've heard many old wives tales: apples under the seat, etc. but the truth is only an ozone machine will fix it 100%

I would go to a pet store and get a cleaner designed for animal smells. They have some with enzymes that kill the odor. BG makes a spray for Air conditions that kills odors to. Napa sells it. You want to destroy the odor not cover it up.

Did the pet have an accident on the carpet/leather? Have you tried to shampoo the carpet and for the leather, clean it with Tuff Stuff then leather conditioner. Tuff Stuff also works well on carpet...

I have had good luck steam cleaning carpets and seats in vehicles. When steam cleaning for pet odors, I use Simple Green and not a regular carpet cleaning solution. It does a good job on the odor.

some people also say charcoal will absorb smell... never tried it though. You got to have the bag of charcoal open.
