Use a towel to soak up as much of the urine as possible by pressing the towel into the carpet. Once you have removed as much of the liquid as you can mix 2 cups of warm water, 2 cups of vinegar and 4 tablespoons of baking soda. Pour into a spray bottle and spray on the affected area. Let this sit for a few minutes and then gently blot with a cloth. Repeat until most of the liquid has been absorbed. When stain has been removed blot area with a damp cloth to rinse product and blot with a dry towel to remove moisture. This process should remove the stain and the smell from your carpet.
