Never, repeat, never use ammonia
based products to clean up cat
urine. Urine contains ammonia,
and the smell of the cleanser based
ammonia will remind little Kitty that
this was a preferred rest stop and
he will repeat his little accident
there again and again.
Cat urine is one of the most offensive and stubborn
pet smells. You can get rid of it through the
application of water and vinegar, baking soda,
hydrogen peroxide and dish soap. However, cat
urine is persistent and you may need to repeat the
process described in the article several times before
the smell is eliminated for good. It would be wise to
train your cat to use the litter box and then keep it
clean so that it is always used. Good luck in your
crusade against cat urine smell.

Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide
Sprinkle a good amount of baking soda over the area when
it has dried. Squirt a small amount of dish soap into one half
cup of hydrogen peroxide and slowly pour the solution over
the baking soda. Work quickly to massage the mixture into
the carpet, again using a brush to work deep down into the
fibers. Blot up the extra moisture and allow it to dry. There
will be a resultant film which can easily be vacuumed. Note:
You should apply the hydrogen peroxide solution to an
inconspicuous part of your carpet to make sure it does not
stain the fabric.
The first step to removing cat urine smell is to
remove as much of the urine as possible. Place
several paper towels over the area and step on them.
Repeat this process until all of the excess liquid is gone.
It is important to blot, not rub, the liquid. Rubbing will only spread the urine
deeper and wider into the fabric of your carpet or furniture.
Soak up Cat Urine

Cat pee is different than dog pee. You clean up dog urine and the smell goes away.
That is not always the case with cat urine. Cat urine is much more persistent and
most people will tell you that it is much more offensive to the human nose. The
strategies for cleaning these pet “accidents” are similar, but you may have to repeat
the process for our little feline friends. Luckily, you have all the materials readily
available to effectively combat the horrible stench of cat urine.

Beware of Bleach
Using bleach to clean cat urine can
be potentially dangerous. Bleach
and ammonia create a deadly gas.
It’s best to stay away from bleach
when dealing with cat urine. The
smell may be awful but it is hardly
worth dying over.
Vinegar and Water
Make a mixture of half household vinegar and half water.
Apply the solution liberally into your carpet and work down to
the bottom of the fibers. Use a scrubbing brush to make sure
that you are effectively penetrating the area. The vinegar
neutralizes the ammonia in the dog urine and it must come into
contact with the urine to work. Blot the area again or use a wet
vac to remove the excess moisture.
There are a few strategies you can employ to stop kitty from peeing all over the
place. The easiest and most important thing you can do is to keep their litter
box clean. Cats are meticulous creatures and they will find another place to do
their business if their regular spot is foul. Look, cats display a lot of courtesy by
using the litter box. The least you can do is keep it clean. It’s part of the
agreement between house cats and their owners.
Live up to your end of the bargain.
Stop the Pee Before it Happens
Oftentimes, your cat or kitty will not have the courtesy of telling you that they
have fouled your carpet. Here’s a little known fact. Urine is visible with a black
light. Pet stores actually sell small black lights for the specific purpose of seeking
out dog pee. Just turn out the lights, hang up some psychedelic posters, turn
on the Pink Floyd, and go!
