There are also sorts of products for stain and odor removal. I have cats and dogs so am vulnerable to accidents. I like Simple Solution because it is easy to use by just spritzing the solution onto the mark. I find that pet stains do disappear and the odor pretty much too. I am not given to pressing my nose on a former accident. If the spot needs a bit more, it's easy to spray again. Nothing happens to fabric as far as I know, except stain removal. I find this product works for me.
