Do NOT throw out your rug!
There are different methods to get rid of urine odor, but the easiest and simplest method is doing it yourself method. You do need to make a mixture of water, white vinegar and couple drops of liquid soap. The volume of the mixture is depending on the urinated area. OK! Go and get the following items:
1. White Vinegar (50%)
People always asked me, why I do suggest vinegar for cleaning a handmade rug. Vinegar has doual functions and specially is very important factor for washing any handmade rug. Why?
Vinegar cuts the odor from any urine or feces.
The majority of dyes in handmade rugs are acid-base. Adding white vinegar to the water make the water more acidic. This acidic water prevent color bleeding (color running) and keeps the color to the wool. Just make sure apply the water and winger mixture to the small section of rug before applies it to the entire section.
OK! Let's go!
Make a mixture 50%-50%. (White vinegar and Water) and couple drops of liquid soap.
