Pet Urine Disinfectant & Deodorizer




About: Helping the world to become a better place. One instructable at a time.

We all have gone through the struggle of potty training our pet and no matter what we do we can't avoid accidents from happening, especially in the first months.

So I made this instructable to share how I managed to sterilized and eliminated odors of urine and poop. :)

Apologies to @Wizard188 apparently these solutions causes stains on fabric and carpets. So please be careful in using these mixture. I only use these solutions on cement and tile/ceramic surfaces. If you intend to use these on other surfaces please research or ask an expert first.

Step 1: What You Need:

For the Disinfectant:

1. 8oz Alcohol
2. 2oz Water
3. 5-20 drops of fragrance / essential oil

For the Deodorizer:

1. 5 oz Hydrogen Peroxide
3. 1 tsp Vinegar
4. 1 tsp baking soda
5. 4-20 drops of fragrance / essential oil
6. 1 pc Lemon (Cut in half)


1. 2 Clean Spray bottles
2. Measuring spoon / cup
3. Gloves

Step 2: Formula 1: Disinfectant

1. Prepare the all the equipment and ingredients
2. Put in all the together and make sure to be cautious in handling the alcohol since it can be irritating and should only be used for external use.
3. After you put in all the ingredients, make sure to tightly close the spray lid of the bottle and keep it away from children.

Step 3: Formula 2: Deodorizer

Compared to the disinfectant, the deodorize has a lot of ingredients and essentially dry and wet ingredients which could react to each other. Now this is what you should do:

1. Pour in the hydrogen peroxide into the spray bottle;
2. Add the fragrance / essential oil;
3. Put in the lemon juice into the bottle;
4. Lastly, Add the baking soda to the mixture (Note that when you mix hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, a reaction occur so be careful)

Step 4: AND.... We're DONE!

You could definitely use other ingredients. This instructable doesn't necessarily mean that this is the best way to disinfect or deodorize pet accidents.

Honestly, I am still looking for more efficient, cost-effective, and environment friendly alternatives to clean and deodorize not only pet accidents but my whole house.

So, if you know more about how to do thing better. Please send me a link, any info, point me to a website or you can comment down below what I should do instead.

Thank you for reading my instructables I hope you enjoyed it!

    Question 11 months ago

    Are the essential oils necessary to disinfect? If so, which ones do you recommend? Thanks!

    The creator failed to mention that this combination should not be used on carpet or fabric as it will stain!

    OK, I have 3 dogs, all rescues, and they do have accidents. I buy this stuff commercially and I have now downloaded your instructable and I will definitely give it a try.

    I find it easier when you're able to train a dog before they grow old. Its easier than when they're grown up. I love that you opted to get rescue dogs. Well I can't say that this is the best cleaner but just in case you ran out of what you usually use or what is effective for you, this can be an alternative. I still try to mix different ingredients until I'm satisfied. My challenge with this mixtures that they tend to become sticky when they dry out on ceramic tiles. :)

    I'm glad I help you in any way. You're one of the reasons why I love doing this stuff. Good luck with your version. Let us know how did it do! :)
