Question: How do I remove dog urine from clothes?

Here's how to remove dog urine stains from clothes:

Answer:

We love our dogs, but not their urine odors. For washable clothing or linens, first flush the area with cold water. Then launder as usual with a heavy-duty detergent, adding 1 cup vinegar to the wash water. If the odor remains, repeat the process. Line drying the items outside will also help dissipate the odors.

If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
