Larger beds will likely have a removable cover on them. Wash the cover in the washing machine. To target odors in the stuffing, sprinkle the stuffing with a bit of baking soda. Vacuum off the baking soda, then replace the clean cover. A clean, odor-free pet bed awaits.
Did you know that cats are obligate carnivores? This means that hey HAVE to eat meat, ONLY meat. They do not need vegetables nor grains. Veterinarians sell foods with grains without even considering the physiology of felines, it’s absolutely horrible. Cat food manufacturers show pictures of healthy vegetables and grains on the bags of food and people think it’s good for their cats, it’s not. I’m convinced that this bad diet, perpetuated by nearly everyone, is the cause of so many feline problems…UTIs, bladder issues, diabetes, etc.
Purchase a repellent spray if your pet keeps urinating in the same area. There are a variety of sprays available for different types of pets, such as dogs and cats. Search for one that fits your household needs (such as being safe for use in houses with children) and won’t damage your particular type of carpet.

2. As others have stated, if you go to dump out the waste water in the tank, you will more than likely lose some of your cleaner/clean water. The alternative to this is, go figure, don’t dump the dirty tank until it is “full”. There is a line on the tank that reads “full” when the dirty water gets up that high. I also have found that when you turn it a certain way to empty, you run less risk of emptying out your clean water/soap bladder than if you just “dump it out” in a rush. If you turn it where the “empty hole” is furthest away from you, the “clean water fill” hole is at the top, you run less risk of emptying out the good water. Also, if I wait for the sprayer/clean water to empty, then I haven’t got a problem. I also will just fill it half full. We are talking tablespoons of the clean soap that you are using by the time you fill a full tank and then use most of it. The “clean” tank only requires a few ozs. of cleaning solution, so if you know you won’t use a full tank, then don’t make a full tank. It isn’t that big of a deal to me to lose a few ozs of soap, but to some it may be.
Replace the padding underneath. For stubborn stains that you suspect may have soaked through the carpet into the padding, replacing the padding itself will help a lot. Pull up the carpet, cut a sample of the padding and bring it to a home improvement store to find padding of equal thickness. Cut out the stained padding and replace it with a piece of the new padding.

Just tried this and it really works! It completely removed the smell on carpet that had been repeatedly peed on. We got a dog from animal friends and when I went back to teaching she’s been peeing in the corner area of my living room. It smelled like a kennel. All of the smell is gone!

Once the area is clean, make it unattractive and/or unavailable to your pet and the appropriate bathroom area attractive. As long as your pet can smell their personal scent, they will continue to return to the “accident zone.”
Add in 4 heaping tablespoons of baking soda, adding it in smaller amounts if it threatens to fizz over (and it really does fizz!) Pour into a spray bottle and thoroughly spray the area. Let sit for 5 minutes, then gently rub and blot up with a soft cloth. You can also simply pour some straight from the bowl over the stain if you don’t have a spray bottle.
To get your house to not smell like your pets, start by vacuuming all of the floors, carpets, and furniture in your house. Then, wipe down any upholstered furniture with warm soapy water and let it air dry, which will help eliminate odors trapped in the fabric. You should also machine wash your bedding, your pet’s bed, and your pet’s toys to get rid of any odors coming from them. Also, try opening up all of your windows and setting up an air purifier.
Commercial repellents are available in the form of sprays and contain different chemicals or natural compounds such as cayenne pepper that dogs don’t like and will avoid. If the dog has already soiled the carpet, clean it using an enzymatic cleaner or vinegar, and allow the carpets to dry completely. Spray the repellents generously and reapply as indicated on the label of the product you use.
Start off by taking all of the furniture apart – pillows, blankets and the like – and vacuuming everything thoroughly. If the sofa and chairs have removable slipcovers or cushion covers, take those off for washing (details later). Get into the crevices of the furniture as deep as possible to remove all the hair, and flip the bed mattress to get both sides. On the floors, make sure to get under all of the furniture and in the corners, where “hair bunnies” tend to gather.

If the wood on your furniture, walls, baseboard or floor is discolored, the varnish or paint has reacted to the acid in the urine. You may need to remove and replace the layer of varnish or paint. If you do so, make sure the new product is safe for pets.
I have a cat who peed on his bed, and secretly in both carriers – everything comes apart so I have been running them through the washing machine but with no success smell-wise. Is there a way to turn one of these mixes into a soak or add to the laundry machine?
If you notice you suddenly have to pee more often than usual, though, it could be a sign of a health problem such as a UTI, kidney disease, diabetes, an enlarged prostate in men, vaginitis in women, or a problem with the wall of your bladder called interstitial cystitis.
Once the urine is soaked up, rinse the area with cool water, and be sure to soak up the water with towels or a wet vac. (If you use a towel, make sure it has been washed multiple times so the dye from the towel is not transferred to the carpet.)

Consider using ultraviolet light to explore more thoroughly. If you want to be thorough, buy a UV or fluorescent black light of a portable size. Look for a long bulb so you can cover more ground at much, preferably longer than 12 inches (30cm). Cheap bulbs with the housing included can be found at most hardware stores. Although pet stores sell the lights as well, they’re usually smaller and more expensive. They can also be purchased at a reasonable cost online, depending on how much time you have to wait around living with the odor.
What you are smelling may just be her natural dog odor once the shampoo’s fragrance has worn off. If it smells like it’s something else, try to figure out if she is getting into something that gives her that smell.
Leslie Reichert, a self-described “cleaning coach,” editor of Clean Green Living Magazine and author of The Joy of Green Cleaning, prefers to hit dog urine stains with a few squirts of hydrogen peroxide. Spray the stain, let it bubble up (that means it’s working) and let it sit for 10 to15 minutes before sopping it up with a rag. “Be sure to spot test first to make sure the hydrogen peroxide doesn’t discolor your carpet,” she said.
Wash toys, bedding, and accessories regularly. Pet smells build up over time, so it’s important to stay on top of cleaning and washing. Wash your pet’s bed, fabric toys, leashes, and collars in the washing machine every month. Wash hard toys every month in the sink with soap and water. Water bowls need more frequent attention–wash these with soap and water every week.
Your urine contains waste products that need to be expelled from the body along with water. When you drink less water, the waste matter becomes more concentrated and can cause urine to smell stronger than usual. This darker, more concentrated urine can appear early in the morning when you haven’t drunk much water over the night or when you’ve not had enough water and the body is dehydrated.7

I just moved into a new place, the people who lived in it before us had dogs. The pet urine smell is actually pretty strong. I’ve used pet urine, stain and odor spray, it didn’t help. We used a carpet scrubber on it twice and I don’t think its helping. Any helpful hits or ideas? I just want the smell gone!
I have been removing pet urine and human urine professionally for 27 years with industrial strength hydrogen peroxide. we use 30% H202. you can buy 20 volume or 40 volume clear developer from a beauty supply co. this is peroxide used in bleaching hair. or buy strong peroxide from a pool store. only use on synthetic fibers, saturate carpet and pad, let dry 24 hrs. do not touch with skin til dry, shoes ok. keep pets off spot til dry. if you touch chemical wash immediately, rinse eyes for 15 minutes if contaminated, skin turns white and burns for 15 minutes after washing. the oxygen radicals will neutralize the urea, the odor,and kill the bacteria. it does not need to be rinsed. also works on red wine, blood, coffee, and mold. this is a trade secret. use enough strong peroxide it works every time.
Put on your rubber gloves, spray from the outside edge of the stain towards the middle, working the vinegar solution into the carpet fibers with your fingers or a clean, lint-free cloth, towards the middle of the stain.
I strongly advise that if you are contemplating the above instructions you stop. There are cleaners that can remove the stains and smell without you having to play laboratory and creating things that can ruin your home. My choice of cleaner for pet stains is Genesis 950. Cleans better then anything I have tried . . . and I have been through a lot of different products. But even if you don’t use that, use anything . . . just don’t do the vinegar/baking soda thing.
An inflamed bladder could also cause your urine to smell in this particular kind of UTI in women. Those with the problem complain of fishy smelling urine or strong smelling pee. You may also experience pain or stinging sensations when you pee. A greater urgency to pee as well as a need to go more often are other signs. You may also feel like you’re unwell, all tired and achy. The urine itself may also be dark and cloudy.6
In your lifetime, your kidneys filter more than one million gallons of water, enough to fill a small lake. Amazingly, one kidney can handle the task perfectly well. In fact, if you lose a kidney, your remaining kidney can increase in size by 50 percent within two months, to take over the job of both.3
I had read mixed reviews regarding this carpet cleaner leaving “clumps” of hair/fur all over the rug, some people saying that it was due to it being so powerful that it pulls up hair that has been missed with a not so powerful vacuum cleaner, and others stating that its suction isn’t powerful enough thus the clumps!
Urine composition and function. (2017, August 6). Retrieved from https://chem.libretexts.org/Textbook_Maps/Introductory_Chemistry_Textbook_Maps/Map%3A_Fundamentals_of_General_Organic_and_Biological_Chemistry_(McMurry_et_al.)/29%3A_Body_Fluids/29.8%3A_Urine_Composition_and_Function
Urine is the body’s liquid waste. It is made by the kidneys, which filters toxins out of the blood. It contains water, salt, urea, and uric acid. Urea is expelled in the form of sweat through the body, while uric acid is the result of urine metabolism.
This upright, carpet deep cleaner is made to handle just about anything laid down by your pet. When it comes down to it, it’s hard to beat a BISSELL and they’re usually exactly what you’re looking for.
Urinary frequency is also important. Peeing six to eight times per day is “average.” You might go more or less often than that, depending on how much water you drink and how active you are. Increased frequency can be caused by an overactive bladder (involuntary contractions), caffeine, a urinary tract infection (UTI), interstitial cystitis, benign prostate enlargement, diabetes, or one of a handful of neurological diseases.9
Dealing with a dog who pees in the house is a pain, but there are steps you can take, especially if your otherwise perfect pooch likes to piddle on the carpet. Dog urine has an unpleasant smell and over time the odor becomes more difficult to remove. To prevent your dog from urinating on carpets while you train it to urinate outdoors, you may use certain commercial repellents or home remedies. Dogs have very sensitive noses, so often a strong smelling repellent sprayed on their usual pee spot will be enough to dissuade your dog from peeing. It’s important to clean the areas well before you apply any solutions, especially if the dog has urinated on the carpets as dogs tend to return to places that have a urine odor. Also, be sure to spot test any of these repellents before spraying large areas to be sure no discoloration of your carpet occurs.
But at just over 5 feet, the hose is average-length. This model might fit the bill if you have a smaller space in a one-story house; it can cover only 15 square feet on one full tank of solution. (Some machines cover twice that area.) But you’ll end up with a carpet that dries easily because this Bissell scores an Excellent on our dryness test.
3. Works very well at stain removal using just the beater bar/floor tool and no attachment/hand held for tough foot traffic stains. I have not used it to remove set in pet stains so far as I use a “cat urine” eliminator “Get Serious” to remove the cat urine smell and it also removes the stains. I haven’t tried to remove old urine stains yet with it since I have none after having used GET SERIOUS. It does remove yellowed spots where I have allowed the cat urine to set for long periods (because it was behind a piece of furniture that only gets moved once a month when we move it to vac under it), but a month is hardly time to judge a yellow urine stain as “set in”. I have removed brown rust colored stains that the last professional carpet shampooer company “brought up” (Funny, they were in the middle of an open room and at the base of our stairs where no stain was prior to their coming and the stain wasn’t there until we refused for the umpteenth time their attempt to up-sell us on worthless products!!) and I had previously been unable to get that stain out using my Little Green Machine without it coming back up to the surface after a few weeks. I have only had this machine two weeks and have used it on the room 3 times in order to do a deep thorough clean and also to try and get some pet hair out. I have used it in “spots”, too but only a total room clean 3 times.
Rocco & Roxie’s Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator lives up to its name. This efficacious liquid will quickly and easily remove odors, but where it really shines is in handling those super hard stains.
