    What's the best way to clean an area rug to get pet odors out of it?

    To get the rug clean and the odors out, should we steam clean it, take it to the dry cleaners or is there a better option?

    They have great sprays out there I use sometimes.  But I like to make my own stuff.  I make a combination of water and vinegar in a spray bottle because the vinegar will deter the pet from going on that spot.  See spot run?  That's because he smelled the vinegar and hates it. lol

    We purchased the Bissell brand steam cleaner a couple of years back and I steam clean the rugs and dining room chairs every 3 to 4 months or when needed.  The brand also gives you a variety of liquid scents you can use.  It's a tedious task, but it keeps the cost of calling a company down.

    You can try for a professional cleaner or if you don't want to go then try a home remedies to remove it use hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda, and Dish Detergent ingredients in an old plastic pail and stir well. Once the powder is dissolved put mixture in a spray bottle and apply to affected area.
