When traveling with your pet cat or dog as well as your child or someone else's kid, accidents can and will happen. Your baby or your pet might end up getting car sick when traveling with them with your ride on short notice, thus leaving a terrible mess when push comes to shove.
They could also get so excited that they'd leave puddles of urine all over the place. In the case of the baby, he might have a soaking wet or overfilled diaper.
Speaking of which, pooping is also a concern with a toddler or pet that hasn't been properly potty trained. It gets worse your kid or pet accidentally bleeds all over your car as well for a variety of reasons.
Here are the things you can do in order to deal with these biological disasters.
How to Get Rid of Various Pet or Baby Messes
- Urine: When it comes to urine stains from the baby or the family pet. You'll need loads of paper towels, rags, and/or an isopropyl alcohol spray bottle for a quick fix. You can also use the aforementioned enzymatic stain removers from before. Don't forget to soak up the extra urine and remove the cushion for washing if called for. Use paper towels to remove the urine stain as well, blotting it out while putting in club soda or pet enzyme cleaner to reactivate the stain and turn it liquid again.
- Poop: You'll need a plastic scraper and dust pan to scrape the bits of poop away, particularly the wet or gooey portions. If the poop is dry, it's easier to remove. Afterwards, spray the area with pet enzyme cleaner (it also works with baby poop messes) and hydrogen peroxide. Baking soda should also be sprinkled then vacuumed up to remove the resulting odor.
- Blood: Getting rid of blood stains from car upholstery usually involves mixing a solution of lukewarm water and mild soap. Afterwards, shake the solution well to make plenty of suds. Apply the foam over the stain via sponge. Rub the stain gently while ensuring the stain ends up on the sponge instead of spreading all over the area. Wipe the moisture with a clean soft cloth when you're finished. You can also use hydrogen peroxide to remove bloodstains on car fabric too.
- Vomit: When dealing with vomit, the first thing you should do is get rid of the large chunks of puke with paper towels or plastic bags. Afterwards, spray the area with isopropyl alcohol. How much of a mess it'll leave depends on the consistency of the feces in question. You can spray enzyme odor remover or a vinegar-water solution to remove smells and stains. You can also set aside a bowl of vinegar solution to absorb smells.
