Dog urine smell

The dog urinated on my tiled floor and it soaked into the unsealed grout. I used vinegar on the grout but the smell is still there. What can I do to get rid of the smell?

    I would try a little bit of Kilz paint on a Q-Tip. It seals the odor in.

      Odor Ban use to be a great product back in the 90's... I still use it to date for light cleaning but it's formula today doesn't compare to what it use to be back then. It doesn't clean as well as even if it's used in it's concentrated form... I don't know why these companies try to improve on things that isn't broke... Guess it's all about profit, but we're stuck as consumers with their lousy improvements.

    I use to have a roommate with cats who relieved themselves everywhere but their litter box's and getting that stinch out of and off anything porus is wicked hard... It's going to take an enzyme product to get results... Odor-Bn, Bleach, Baking Soda, etc. didn't kill the ordor completely. We used an enzyme product called Urine B Gone which sells at Wal-Mart around 9.88... Janet Pizaro's suggestion Natures Miracle may do the job also as it's an enzyme product, but a bit more expensive... So if you don't intend to purchase from a professional company I'd give these two over the counter products a try... the Urine B Gone did the job for me.

    Use white vinegar always works good

    pour white vinegar on it, then baking soda and when it stops fizzing, remove. Takes pet odors and stains out of carpet as well. But I leave on the carpet for about 5-6 hours.

    I took cat spray smell out of my furnace using cat box deoderant spray. Worked great. Bleach doesn't touch it.

    Nature's Miracle or OdoBan. Allow to seep into grout. You may need several treatments.

    Try sprinkling baking soda over it then pour a little peroxide on it. Of course, it will bubble all up! Let it set for a few minutes and wipe off! Smell should be gone!

    if all the suggestions above can't remove it, scrape the section of grout with pee out to remove all grout and regrout. That way, you KNOW you got the smell out. Then seal ALL grout.

    Hi Pam, so sorry to hear that. It's a common problem. Mix ¼ cup of baking soda with 1 cup water, 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar, and about 1/4 cup of mild dish soap. Put the solution in a spray bottle a mix thoroughly before spraying it on the stain. Rub it in lightly with a clean cloth and let it stand for about 20 minutes. Rinse the solution away with a damp cloth and let it dry thoroughly. Be sure to test the mixture first on a spot to make sure it won’t discolor or damage your tiled floor.

    Make a mixture of baking soda and blue dish soap. It should be a nice paste. Rub the paste onto the grout for 5 minutes. Then add a drop of vinegar to the paste and gently clean with a toothbrush. This should get rid of the smell and clean the stain no problem.

    Try spraying it with Febreze or fabric freshener.
