Dog urine deterrent recipe
It is important to note that the dog urine deterrent recipe I am about to share with you works best on dry surfaces like the floor or carpets.
And it does not work for liquids, so if your dog pees on a paper towel or other soft surfaces it will not help at all. Before we get to the recipe, let me tell you a few things that will help these ingredients work as dog urine deterrents.
One of the main reasons why dogs pee in certain spots is because they can easily smell their urine at that spot.
How can prepare a Dog urine deterrent recipe
- 6 tablespoons of cornmeal
- 6 tablespoons of wheat germ
- 6 tablespoons of baking soda
- 2 tablespoons blueberry juice concentrate
- 1/2 cup of vinegar
- 2 teaspoons of lavender oil
- 3 tablespoons of water
- Lemon juice
- Large bowl
- Microwave-safe bowl
- Mixing spoon
- Water vessel (for the vinegar)
- Colander or strainer
- Vinegar vessel for boiling water (you can also use a small glass)
- Sponge and cloths
- Trash bags
- Wooden stick (optional)
Step 1: Mix baking soda, water, and vinegar in a bowl. If the baking soda begins to fizz, add more water until the bubbles fade away.
Step 2: Add cornmeal and wheat germ to the mixture you just created and mix it thoroughly until all ingredients are blended.
Step 3: Put your mixture in any of your chosen vessels for boiling water (I would recommend using one that is microwave safe). Determine how much time you need for boiling and wait until ready to use.
Step 4: Cut half of the lemon and put it in your vinegar vessel. Wash your hands with soap and water, then take clothes and wash them with soap as well before using.
Step 5: Add the mixture from step 3 to the vinegar in the above vessel. Leave the mixture for at least 30 minutes and no more than two hours before use.
Step 6: After being ready to use, begin to wipe down all surfaces where the urine would be placed, making sure that no spots are missed. (Eg. the floor, the walls…)
Step 7: After you have cleaned it, take the cloth and use a mixture of one part vinegar and three parts water to wipe everything down again. This will make sure there is no residue left behind.
Step 8: Let it dry for at least 3 hours before putting things back where they belong.
1. The first time you use your formula will be the hardest thing to do because it’s difficult to clean urine spots off clay surfaces like ceramic tiles or concrete floors. After you have used the formula the first time, it will be easy for you to clean up that spot, so I recommend trying this more than once.
2. Make sure you have a vinegar vessel on hand for boiling water. Vinegar is one of the main ingredients that make this recipe work and without it, you might get very little results.
3. If your dog goes to the bathroom in small amounts (like a few times a day), your recipe might last only a few days before smelling like vinegar again.
4. If your dog has a strong smell, you might need to keep the containers you use for boiling water separate from the ones to which you have added the mixture.
5. To make sure that your kitchen does not smell like vinegar, place a sponge in the sink and add fragrance oil to it and leave them for about 15 minutes before washing up.
6. Store your vinegar vessel somewhere where there is enough space for it to be moved around, but not too much because it will spill on the floor if stored too close to the ground.

Disadvantages of Dog urine deterrent recipe
1. It won’t work if your dog says on a soft surface like a paper towel.
2. If you have a high-traffic area that is used by humans, this recipe will not work.
3. It requires two hours to take effect and sometimes (depending on the amount of urine placed in the area) it might need up to two days before it starts working completely.
4. Dogs are very smart and will find ways around different deterrents, so you might need to use other methods for getting rid of their bad habits as well.
How can Store Dog urine deterrent recipe
1. Store the mixture in microwavable jars with lids (preferably in the refrigerator) or you can store it in glass containers that are well closed within a dark place (not exposed to direct sunlight).
2. Store your vinegar vessel in a cool, dry place.
3. Store the water vessel where you will use it most often and keep it away from other ingredients and liquids.
4. If you want your mixture to last for a very long period, there is no limitation. But when it comes to small amounts of the mixture, it is best to use them within a year.
7. Important: Always make sure that you wash your hands with soap and water and wash your clothes with soap before you start cleaning!
When should you use Dog urine deterrent recipe
1. If your dog has a strong smell, you might need to keep the containers you use for boiling water separate from the ones where you added the mixture.
2. If your dog goes to the bathroom in small amounts (like a few times a day), your recipe might last only a few days before smelling like vinegar again.
3. Use it when you want to clean up urine stains on ceramic tiles or concrete floors but do not want to use chemical cleaners or anything harmful to those surfaces.
4. If you have a baby, pet, or allergy-sensitive house, this recipe will be the best deterrent you need to get rid of dog urine.
5. Use it when you want to remove all traces of dog urine and not leave behind any smell that might make your home smell like vinegar again.
This is a very simple formula but it takes a while to get used to. The first time it might take you 2-3 days before you start seeing results.
The way I use this recipe, after using it for the first time, the smell of vinegar is still very strong on my kitchen counter top and deep cleaning can be quite difficult.
After that day, you will not have any trouble at all in trying to clean up urine stains on your countertops because the odor will be gone immediately after each use.
