Pet messes: Pet odors and pet stains
How it works: A multi-tasking pet-mess buster, baking soda can address smelly pet beds, blankets and litter boxes. For a bad smelling bed, “get rid of odors by sprinkling it with baking soda,” says Roberts. Let the baking soda sit for 15 minutes to deodorize the area and then vacuum it away. To deodorize an area where there was a potty accident, like on your carpet or couch, Roberts recommends coating the area with an equal mixture of baking soda and salt, then letting it dry. Finish by vacuuming and blotting with club soda. If you want to help kick any odor coming from your cat’s litter box, go directly to the source and sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda on the bottom of the box.
