  1. Vinegar the miracle fluid. We us a mixture of vinegar, detergent, peroxide and essential oils to spray on pet accidents because we have two very aged dogs (19 and 12) living in the house. This solution works well and prevents staining, but I wouldn’t use it on carpet, we have pavers as a floor.

    vinegar, water, and baking soda are good for removing rust.
    Don’t advise the same formula for cats, just saying.

  3. Wow – this is super helpful. We have a formerly feral cat we took in a few years ago & she is super sweet & we love her – but she pees all over the place. Going to give this a try.

  4. Vinegar is good for cleaning everything. I keep a spray bottle of 50% white vinegar under the kitchen sink to clean windows, glass tabletops and spot clean the floor.It gets smudges off stainless steel appliances, too.

    The scent evaporates so quickly, I am surprised that it’s effective at keeping cats out of anything.
