I’ve used the vinegar/water cleaner, followed by hydrogen peroxide/baking soda procedure for the last several years. We have three labs, and had two cats (one of whom is no longer with us). The process worked well for stains AND odor. Actually, doing the carpet AGAIN as we speak!

And sodium acetate really wont do anything to anything at that concentration either, it’s far too diluted in the mixture to actually do anything. The only thing you could argue is putting the baking deep in the stain then pouring the vinegar over it. It could lift some of the stains away from carpet fibers, but the actual chemistry of mixing the ingredients WONT do anything. You are cleaning it with basically nothing but water.
Cover the area where you used the enzymatic cleaner with a towel or anything that helps cats and people avoid the spot. If the stain and the cleaner went deep into the cushions, it could take several days to dry. If possible, leave the cushions outdoors in the sun to help dry them and remove odors.
Mellody, I believe is urinating on my daughter’s bed out of habit. Over the last 10-14 days I have cleaned my daughters mattress with Natures Miracle, then again with peroxide and baking soda: making a paste, scrubbing it into the mattress, letting it dry (3 hours), then vacuuming it up. After that, I placed a plastic mattress cover (zippered) on her mattress to avoid further soiling. I also purchased a brand new sheet thinking that maybe the smell was still in the old sheet. Even after all that, she still urinated on the bed.
Step 2: Pour 4-6 oz of warm water on the stain. Extract or absorb this water from the carpeting (repeat 3 times). This dilutes the urine and helps the “good” bacteria in the best pet odor eliminator product to quickly eat away at the “bad” bacteria.

Willow, once should do the trick, assuming the washer you use is large enough. Sometimes they get all bunched up in the washer and the soap/water can’t penetrate all the way through the entire thing. Take it to a laundromat if need be. Just use your regular detergent and about a quarter cup or so of apple cider vinegar. If you have it, it helps to add some Nature’s Miracle to the laundry.
If you can still smell the odor once the area is dry, you may have to repeat the process – which is a bit of a pain, but is still the best method for how to get pet urine smell out of carpet in your home.
Try using a carpet shampooer. Fill the shampooer’s reservoir with water, and add the liquid cleaner to the compartment. Press the lever and vacuum the entire carpet. Allow the carpet to dry for at least 24 hours, and then vacuum.
I have a cat and his litterbox gets a little smelly. This eliminates the smell instantly! Its like a miracle. It also works well for “the wet dog smell” that will linger around the house when my dogs get wet and lay on the couch. This works really well. Over spraying it can be overwhelming though.
If the vomit was on the carpet, after wiping it with a damp rag, sprinkle baking soda over the stain and let it sit for an hour to absorb the moisture. If the stain is on a hard floor, proceed to step 3.
I have used Listerine on all kinds of surfaces with absolutely no ill effects. I keep a spray bottle of it on hand to use as a way of keeping my cats away from areas where I don’t want them. It can be lightly sprayed on furniture, carpet, drapes, hardwood floors and just about anything else with no problems. It is more effective as a fabric freshener than Febreze and other products of that nature. In a fine mist bottle, it makes a good air freshener. It is much better used this way than in your mouth! LOL! 😀

To answer your questions – yes, I have a front loader and I use OxiClean by just throwing it on top of the laundry. As far as the OdoBan, I just looked it up and YES I would pick up a couple of jugs. What I’m seeing from the reviews is that it’s very strong smelling so definitely open up your house top to bottom and if you have any fans get those going too because you’re not going to want to breathe that stuff in in concentrated amounts. It looks like this is good for more than just clothes. Following the directions for mixing the OdoBan with water, I would wipe down your walls and any hard floors you have then I would put it in your Little Green (I can’t get through the week without mine, good buy!) up to the solution line, add water, and use it on your upholstery and carpet. Just skip the OxiClean for the carpet as it sounds like the OdoBan may be a better bet for the concentrations of urine you’re dealing with.
If your cat’s not using the litter box, it’s likely that he or she is trying to tell you something. The first thing you need to do is rule out a medical problem, said Bruce Kornreich, DVM, PhD, DACVIM and associate director of the Cornell Feline Health Center.  Medical issues related to inappropriate urination can include urinary tract infections, kidney disease, diabetes, hyperthyroidism and feline lower urinary tract disease, and can cause a cat to urinate outside the litter box, particularly if he or she associates the litter box with pain. If you believe your cat is suffering from any of these conditions, or is exhibiting additional symptoms, bring them to your veterinarian immediately, as untreated conditions, like urinary tract infections, can become serious.
There’s a common theme in anything which we use to handle our pets: a high cost. With Out!’s Pet Stain and Odor Remover you might just be able to handle the problem without making a super serious investment.
This stuff worked great!! Bought a chair at goodwill and my cat went right over and peed on it. Ugh…figured I was going to have to throw it away because it probably had been peed on before and that’s why the cat decided to mark it. Used this mixture soaked the chair and no odor at all! Same cat now sleeps in this chair. No more pee odor and no more cat wanting to mark his territory. : )
Rosemary, as for who and why, that’s tough. I have two cats and when things happen, it’s usually somewhat of a guessing game. However, one of my cats is considerably more spiteful, and territorial, than the other. So most of the time, even though she’s a lovely animal, it’s a fair bet to point a finger at that one. I mention territorial because it may be possible that she/he was upset about an unwelcome (to the cat, at least) house guest. Has this been a fairly isolated incident? I only ask because if it’s happening frequently, you may be right, and the cat may not be feeling well. One last thing, did the suitcase get urine on it, too? Or did the clothes catch it all?
I need some help. One of my cats had peed on the carpet and I didn’t about it until it was almost dried up. I have already done a treatment of white vinegar. Saturated the area and sprinkled baking soda on top of it to absorb. I cleaned it up after the baking soda turned brown, about 24 hours later. Still noticed it smelled of urine and put more baking soda on the area for 24 hours. More brown showed up and vacuumed it up. I took some soap and warm water to scrub the area and laid more baking soda down. I feel like did some of the cleaning half right. Any guidance on what I have done so far would be wonderful. Thank you.
You might think that the worst spot your uses as a litter box is the couch or carpet, but his spraying other surfaces can be just as bad. If your cat is spraying urine against a wall or on hardwood floors, clean the surfaces completely with a 75/25 spray of vinegar and water.
Our cat throws up….a LOT. we’re in a rental and moving at the end of August. I was thinking we’d lose our deposit because of these stains, but now I’m thinking maybe not!! Claire, thank you! I’m trying this right now!
