After trying a million pet stain products, could someone please tell me if you have tried something that actually gets dog urine stains out and keeps them out for good? They seem to come out at first but then magically reappear later. Have to get my off white carpets crystal clean before moving! Someone told me to just use hot water with no solution and then tons of muscle and suction to remove water. Help!

The name is weird, but I bought some Urine Gone at Target. It has enzymes that eat the urine away. It works.
EDIT: there is a Google ad on this page for it!

Prior to that I used Clorox Oxy Magic Oxygen Stain Remover. It does not have bleach as Clorox may imply.

My carpet is light beige so it probably hides any stain better than off-white though!

Get Serious. I found it previously at a specialty dog/pet shop... but now I can find it at PetsMart.

Used it,twice. Worked but stains did reappear in the same spots. Had ordered the gallon size on line which was a little cheaper.

You might want to try Magic Erasers. The carpets in our house may have been treated with some stain resistant product by the previous owners, but I find these Erasers clean our carpets really well. You just wet them a little and scrub away. Worked on ketchup and chocolate, anyway. You might need something else for the smell if the satins are old. Good luck!

I don't want to be the voice of doom here...but it may be easier to get dark carpets instead. That worked for me.

Even better is wood, but since I am renting a place with light carpets, I need suggestions for that.

Oh I didn't realize it was a rental sorry. Have you tried steam cleaning with pet stain cleaner? You can usually rent the machines and buy the supplies at local grocery stores. Or you may want to have someone come in and do it...sometimes they run specials on that. Good luck.

Oh I just remembered my aunt used to swear by this, but I don't know if it works on old stains or just fresh ones. She would pour salt on the stain and let it sit for a couple of hours then wet, scrub and rinse the spot...the stains did come out.

.
That's what I did, rent a steam cleaner at the local supermarket, or home depot has it as well, and bought the pet stain remover they offered with it. It works VERY WELL, and has a pleasant scent, as well as enzymes in it, breaking down the proteins in the pee.
Worked for me, and my rugs.

I have used a vinegar, water, baking powder and a squeeze of dish detergent and it works wonderful. Not only takes care of the stain, but the odor also.
First wet your area that is a problem and put baking powder on it, let it sit for about 1/2 hour and then scrub it hard. Then get a carpet cleaner and fill with hot, hot water, add 1/4 C of vinegar and the dish detergent and clean the area. This recipe is great for your whole carpet, not just the "doggie spots".
