How Do I Remove Dog Drool Saliva Stains From My Sofa Couch?

Oh, the joys of dog ownership! Obedience and cuddles and soft brown eyes are lovely, but they don’t quite eliminate the irritation of finding a nice puddle of doggy drool staining your sofa. 

Drool is a bit fiddly to deal with because it is a protein-based stain that may also contain tiny bits of food. At Stone Surface Specialists, we’re experts at handling the unadvertised horrors of canine yucky saliva stains from your sofa. Here’s our 3-step strategy for eliminating them yourself:

1 Combine half a cup of hydrogen peroxide (3%) with one teaspoon of ammonia. Apply to the stain with a clean, dry cloth, taking care not to soak the sofa fabric. Be sure to test the solution in an inconspicuous area first.

2 Allow to sit for 30 minutes, then blot with clean paper towels.

3 Apply cool water to the area, then absorb the liquid and dry the area by applying repeated pressure to a thick pad of paper towels over the area. 

If after employing these suggestions you’re still struggling with saliva stains, or if the stains are older and seem to be set in the couch, call Stone Surface Specialists today at 801 856 0164. We’ll have your sofa set to rights in a jiffy.
