Burrell said: 'The Queen would ring a bell if the dog made a puddle on the floor.
'They are house-trained but occasionally older dogs make mistakes. Around the house are piles of blotting paper and soda siphons so if the dogs wee on the carpet.
'This is a very good tip - you pour on the soda water and let it settle in and then stamp out the stain with a blotting paper.'
