Big Dark Spot on hardwood where dog wets... uses puppy pads but they leak or she misses.... any suggestions? can you use bleach on hardwood? TIA!
As far as I know, there is nothing that will remove dark urine stain from floor boards. They need to be replaced with new boards.
Browntoestoo is correct. Replace the boards.
LOL Rosie!!! And I have decied to do just that.
We have the house up for sale and I want to have carpet in our new (to us) house--- we pulled up our carpet here because of her! now we've gotta replace floors....NOT WORTH THE TIME, MONEY, or TROUBLE!! She'll be better off too because I'm gonna make sure whoever gets her will spend more time with her and take her outside more often than I could.
read this before you replace your boards:
"we pulled up our carpet here because of her! now we've gotta replace floors..."
WRONG-- you pulled up the carpet because you did either
not train her well or do not take her out enough.
"....NOT WORTH THE TIME, MONEY, or TROUBLE!!"
You should never have gotten a dog- I find your post outrageous!
gotta agree with good taste here...
some people are just not at a place where they can be good pet owners. doesn't make them bad people...but it makes them bad people to take on a pet, and dogs are pack animals, and simply cannot be left alone for hours on end.
not no how the puppy's fault, and I object to you blaming a child for your own lack of commitment.
There is a product that will bleach wood safely, it's called oxalic acid. We used this years ago (we had to get it from the pharmacy at that time) to bleach out stains in our hardwood floors in front of the bathroom doorway. I remember that you mixed it with water and let it sit for a few minutes (15 or so) and then let it dry before we refinished the area. I found a product on the web at http://www.realmilkpaint.com/oxalic-acid-bleach.html
and this should do the trick.
That post dates back to 2002!!
Looks like an advertising troll.
