Pet related stains such as urine, vomit, faeces, blood and other protein-based stains can be a challenge to remove. Though we can’t guarantee all stains will come out completely, using a commercial stain remover like Shout® does work wonders. Pre-treat the stain before you put the PawPad® in the washing machine and wash normally.
If you prefer to use something more natural, we do have a recipe (below) for a stain removing paste that you can make yourself with 3 simple ingredients.
Dawn® Dish Soap (the blue one)
Airtight Glass Jam Jar or Plastic Storage Container
Mix one (1) part Dawn® with two (2) parts Peroxide in your chosen container. Add one to two (1-2 ) tablespoons of Baking Soda, making a paste. If it’s too runny, add more Baking Soda or add more Peroxide if too thick.
Step 1: Apply a generous amount your new paste stain remover on the stain (preferably over a sink or tub). Using a toothbrush or garment brush, rub stain remover paste into the stain until it looks like it is gone or you see considerable change.
NOTE: It is best to remove any residue (vomit, bodily waste, etc.) and apply the PawPad® paste solution as soon as you discover the stain.
Step 2: Let the PawPad® sit for at least an hour (longer for really tough stains) and then proceed to wash the PawPad® as per the directions on our label sewn on the product.
Step 3: Check the PawPad™ to ensure the stain is gone before putting it in the dryer. Dried on stains are harder to remove. Repeat Step 1 and 2 until the stain is gone and then dry according to our label directions sewn on the product.
We suggest you make a small batch of the paste on an as-needed basis to ensure it is always fresh.
