Here's hoping Fido will learn that sofa cushions aren't a toilet.

Bad timing: Fido decided to use the living room sofa as his toilet right before your husband's boss is arriving for dinner. The stain's not just an eyesore; its unpleasant odor fills the space. Don't panic - you can quickly remove all traces of your pooch's accident.

Step 1

Put on waterproof rubber gloves. As much as you adore your pooch, you don't really want to come into contact with his business.

Step 2

Place a small amount of dish soap onto a clean cloth or paper towel and gently dab it onto the urine stain.

Step 3

Add a solution of 1 part water and 2 parts white vinegar into a spray bottle. Shake well.

Step 4

Spray the cleaning solution generously on the spot of Fido's boo-boo. Don't scrub the stain, to avoid pushing it deeper into the sofa cushion. Allow to dry.

Step 5

Wipe off any remaining residue with a clean cloth.
