When pets are left home alone, they can sometimes feel anxious or lonely, so many dogs like to mark their territory when they can’t be with their owners. This is why dog pee on leather furniture is such a common problem!

However, you don’t have to replace your couch if your dog has an accident; you can clean it at home without damaging the couch or your budget. This guide will walk you through what you need to know to clean dog pee out of leather furniture and keep it smelling fresh between accidents.

Preparing the Stain Remover Solution

First, prepare a solution that consists of one cup each hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, dish soap, and warm water. (This is your cleaning solution.)

Hydrogen peroxide is an effective disinfectant; rubbing alcohol helps break down stains; dish soap has a neutral pH and will not react with leather if used in moderation (avoid excessive use); warm water works best because it’s more likely to penetrate deep into dog pee stains.

Blotting Down The Stain

The first step in removing urine stains from leather furniture is blotting down any excess urine. Blot until you can’t see any yellowish discoloration on your cloth—this indicates that you’ve removed as much as possible. The next step is to saturate a clean cloth with water, wring it out so it doesn’t drip, and lay it over your stain for 30 minutes or so.

You want to make sure that you don’t use too much water because it could soak into your couch and cause additional damage. Afterward, remove the wet cloth and let your couch air dry completely before using it again.

After cleaning, let it dry overnight

Some people recommend using paper towels or rags, but leather can stain easily, so it’s better to use a clean cloth. If you don’t have any paper towels handy, you can always use a microfiber cloth.

Once you’ve got something clean (but not wet) available, blot up as much of that yucky stuff as possible until no more visible wetness remains.

Then let your couch dry overnight before sitting on it again. The next day, take another look at your couch; if there are still some stains remaining, repeat these steps again with a fresh clean cloth.

Prevent future damage from pet stains

If you have pets in your home, you probably have experience with pet stains on furniture. Regardless of whether you have a cat or dog, it is important to clean up pet stains as soon as possible.

Urine will quickly break down into ammonia in your leather furniture, leading to permanent damage if left unattended. Not only that, but urine soaked upholstery can be difficult or impossible to remove. The best way to prevent future damage from pet stains is by cleaning them immediately.
