As someone who is proud to be owned by a Miniature Longhaired Dachshund (notoriously impossible to house break), cleaning up 'mess' has become an all too regular activity in my home. With this in mind, I have tried EVERYTHING for thorough cleaning of such accidents, and I think I have found the two best solutions (aside from successful potty training - we are almost 100%, btw).
Up first: Rocco and Roxie Supply Company's Professional Strength Stain & Odor Remover.
This stuff is as good as it gets. It is not cheap, but that is because it doesn't have to be when it works this well. ALL trace of pet urine will be gone and you will not have a home that smells like you have a dog or cat (always a plus). I suggest buying the gallon size when going through training, as you will need a lot of it, and it is the most cost effective way to purchase.
You soak up the mess (I recommend Zwipes Microfiber cloths for this- you can cut them in half to make them last a LONG time , clean with water and soak up again, then spray a good amount of this stuff, and you are golden.
Up next: The BISSELL Spotbot Pet Handsfree Spot and Stain Cleaner with Deep Reach Technology.
Why do I love this? Well, other than because of the fact that it works, I love it because it is so damn easy to use. Literally set it on top of a stain and push a button. It does the rest.
If the stain is on a rug you want to take extra care with, or if it is bigger than the area covered by the automatic setting, just take the hose attachment out and clean manually, using the hose. This is especially good for when there are (sorry in advance) poop or barf problems that you have no intention of touching/scrubbing by hand, any more than you absolutely have to.
