“best way to get rid of pet urine smell _how to remove set in urine stains from carpet”

Disinfect hard surfaces. Wash the soiled area with a household cleaner that does not contain ammonia. Ammonia smells like urine to dogs and cats. Wipe the area clean with water. In a spray bottle, mix 10 parts water to 1 part bleach. Put on rubber gloves and spray the soiled area. Let the bleach sit for 30 seconds, then clean the soiled area with a damp cloth.
This stuff is amazing. Unfortunately I have a cat that occasionally likes to use the restroom on my beautiful hardwood floors for some reason that I have yet to figure out. I have tried so many cat urine cleaning products that claim to use enzymes to remove the smell, none have worked as well as SUN. (I don’t believe SUN is an enzymatic cleaner, I could be wrong) One in particular that I used to use was Nature’s Miracle – Just for Cats. Wish that had worked because I bought a 2 gallon jug of it. This cleaner, to me smells like urine and therefore makes my house smell like urine until it completely dries, and sometimes my cat will urinate on the same area after using it. I can’t stand the smell of it. I was happy when I opened SUN for the first time, it smells great, a very clean smell.
Odors are an ongoing problem for pet owners; candles and sprays are temporary fixes, which have, to be replaced when they run out. There is a natural permanent application that will resolve your odor problems. The Ionic Paint Additive by Air-ReNu is an additive you blend with interior house paint and apply to the interior walls, and once applied it works 7/24/365 and continue to remain effective for 8-12 years.
The PurAyr™ process is natural and effective thanks to a simple element we call Oxygen. Most of the offensive and potentially harmful odors we experience are created by organic compounds such as bacteria, mold or incomplete combustion (smoke, soot, etc..). Although completely different in nature, these contaminants have at least one thing in common, they are held together by carbon bonds. When organic contaminants are exposed to the PurAyr™ gases, composed of purified Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) and Ozone (O3), they quickly begin to break down into the simple elements they were made from, the PurAyr™ gases in turn fall harmlessly back into Oxygen (O2). In essence we are speeding up time and doing what nature would take care of eventually.
No need to worry about staining either, this product breaks down the stains which can emerge from urine in a natural way. This allows things to get settled out and leave you with a clean floor that only has the cleaner’s scent to it.
Additionally, once a urine stain dries, you may no longer see it but you can still smell it, and so can your cat, leading him or her to re-mark the area. “When it comes to cleaning up cat urine, many cat owners make the same mistake—not cleaning it up quickly enough,” says Meg Roberts, president of Molly Maid, a residential cleaning company.
Try adding borax to the wash load – use up to a cup per large load but don’t overfill the load so that all of it can move around well. Sometimes you will need to do more than one wash. Don’t dry until you no longer smell the urine or else it will set the smell.
Vanessa Beaty, How is it a good idea to bathe a dog w/ peroxide? Why don’t you try pouring peroxide on your skin to test your “magic” solution out before you spew garbage disguised as advise like this ?
Figuring out which product to use is the first step in making sure that your home stays fresh and neat no matter how many pets you might own. With the best pet stain and odor remover at your side, there’s no need to apologize for smells and stains that tend to accumulate with even the best-mannered buddies around the house. Figure out which is right for you and give it a shot, it’s time you start winning this war.
Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is a weak chemical. As such, it neutralizes many acids, which are the cause of most odors, including any your pet can create on his own. This means that, unlike topical fragrances, baking soda does not merely mask odors, it destroys an acid’s ability to make an odor.
Sounds good, but what about any discoloration damage to carpet if “enough strong peroxide” is used? You say use 30% H202, so is the 40 volume (assume 40%) clear developer from beauty supply too strong?
Do not use Hydrogen Peroxide that is higher in concentrate than 3%. Bleaching may occur on some carpets with a stronger solution. Read the label on the Hydrogen Peroxide carefully. The label will state the strength.
This stuff really works! Out of all the products I have used, plus the expensive professional cleaning, I have to say, this was awesome. Its easy and inexpensive. I was a little skeptical at first but after reading all the reviews I decided I would try it, and I’m glad I did! I still can’t believe it. It got rid of a couple dried urine spots on my carpet and let me tell you, it smelled horrific. I wanted to throw up. I was so embarrassed! To anyone who is skeptical about this, take it from me. It really works.  But trust me, before you go out and buy every product in the world, try this.
Wet the stain with vinegar. Put a thick layer of baking soda on it , then allow it to dry. It should wick the stain up into the baking soda. sweep up the dry discolored baking soda that you can and then finish with a quick vacuum.
Fortunately, there are several ways to neutralize the odor, including pantry staples like vinegar or baking soda and enzymatic cleaners. Many find that vinegar, while a bit smelly itself, works to remove the lasting odor of sprayed cat urine because vinegar is an acid that neutralizes the alkaline salts that form in dried urine stains. A solution of one part water and one part vinegar can be used to clean walls and floors. Proponents say that the vinegar smell subsides after a few days, taking the urine smell with it.
Getting rid of the smell of cat urine from carpeting can be challenging, because it can soak right through the carpet fibers to the carpet padding. And since cats have a strong sense of smell, it’s important to clean and deodorize the area completely to prevent a return visit!
Odor Destroyer is not a simple air freshener designed to cover the smell with a stronger scent. Designed specifically to deal with difficult odors like cat urine, Odor Destroyer is a formulated blend of odor eliminating compounds. The fragrances in Odor Destroyer are present only to leave your home smelling fresh while the active ingredients neutralize the source of the odor.
Removing urine stains and smell can be one heck of a chore. I know in my experience removing cat urine was a lot harder then human urine and the smells did not go completely away. I really enjoyed reading your post on home made recipes and I had actually written a blog post that I would like to share with you reader that do not have time to remove urine odors naturally as I feel there are a lot that might find some interest in this. I really hope that this will be ok with you if not please fell free to delete. https://www.odorklenz.com/remove-urine-odors-mattress/
Not an effective enzymatic formula. Used this for dog urine spots discovered with a UV flashlight. The whole bottle was used on about 5 small spots in 2 rooms, and the urine marks were still visible on the carpet with the UV light after treated with this product. It did not deodorize or eliminate/remove the “hot spots” from the dog, and he marched right back in this room to “do his business” on the carpet. This product will not prevent future incidents with dogs. Waste of money.
Avoid ammonia. High in alkaline, ammonia should never be used to clean pet stains. It will leave a sticky residue in the carpet and damage the carpet fibers, attracting dirt and other debris. It will also attract pets back to the same area, because ammonia contains the same uric acids and salts that are present in urine, making it all too tempting for your pet to remark the area. Never use ammonia on pet stains. [3]

At 5:00 this morning I found myself searching the net for ways to get rid of cat pee smell, after returning from a day out to find that SOME CAT (we have three, no names no pack drill) had peed twice in the bathroom. They have a flap and can come and go as they like; we only moved here two months ago and were not planning to touch the b’room until after the summer as there is so much else to do. The smell was simply horrendous and I couldn’t leave the window open until we were up as we live on a public footpath.
4. You’re not done just yet with the homemade remedies. Mix 3/4 cup of three percent hydrogen peroxide (you know you have some under your bathroom sink) with 1 teaspoon of dish detergent. Sprinkle this solution over the baking soda and test a small spot. You need to do this because sometimes peroxide can discolor or bleach fabrics (source). Work the baking soda into the fabric or carpet.
Some cleaners use oxidation as the acting agent in the cleaning process. While oxidation is highly effective in removing stains and does an excellent job of cleaning up most of the substances in cat urine, it does little break down the uric acid that causes lingering odor. For that reason, it doesn’t work to get rid of that subtle smell in the long-term. Oxidizing cleaners can be effective if your cat doesn’t repeatedly return to the affected area, but to really get rid of that barely-noticeable long-lasting smell, enzymatic cleaners are preferred.
5.  Skunked Pet – fortunately, we didn’t have the displeasure of testing out this awful stench firsthand, but my friend at CTI Clean used Stinkers! to neutralize an entire vial of skunk spray, and she made a video of it for you to check out: 
Don’t mean to be condescending but I used this and it worked beautifully, so I wonder if you might have possibly picked up baking powder or corn starch or something. I’ve made that kind of mistake before when stressed and rushing to get rid of a stain before it sets. It just sounds so strange and different from my experience. Thanks to the writer for the tip, you saved a mattress, a lot of money, and my mind!

Ashley, it won’t ruin your clothes- has never ruined mine! They’re pretty gentle cleansers. Once you’ve efficiently removed the ammonia from them (with the vinegar and baking soda) you might even try an extra wash using OxyClean. I love that stuff and it’s never failed to remove nasty odors. I just don’t know that I would mix it with straight cat urine, so that’s why I suggest using it after thoroughly rinsing the items first.
Day to day life is full of funky smells – dirty diapers, mildewed laundry, spoiled food, pet accidents, and SO many more. We’ve had our fair share of stinky situations lately, and as a result, I discovered a fantastic odor removal product that works even better than I had hoped!
