“smelly carpet _clean cat urine smell”

[…] Cat Urine Smell Remover Recipe posted at Home Life Weekly, saying, “It can be difficult to remove cat urine smell from furnishings as the cat urine odor tends to linger, well instead of buying expensive odour removers, this recipe can be used to remove the odor of other pets as well.” […]
To help ensure that the decomposition odors are permanently removed, set a bowl of vinegar or baking soda near the cleaned area. This will help absorb any lingering smells. Keep in mind that the bowls should be placed well out of reach of pets and young children.
Chloe, thanks for the insight! You’re right, if a cat is suddenly urinating outside her box when she’s never done it before then that’s a red flag to take her to the vet. I will add that to this article.
Still. As someone who has two cats that she loves very, very much, I can’t help but feel like they’ve committed a special kind of wrong when one of them urinates on something of mine or my children’s. It’s just so violating.
No matter how much you’d like to get rid of dog’s urine smell and those pee stains on your carpet or hardwood floors, the first priority should be your pet’s safety. Dogs walk on that surface and may lick it, or lick their paws. A study conducted in 2013 found that pet owners are often unaware of the dangerous chemicals in the home (Mahdi et al. 2013).
Many people erroneously think antimicrobials remove all odors.  Antimicrobial chemicals only remove odors caused by microbes (bacteria in particular).  When microbes digest their food source, they generate malodors.  However, many odors are not bacteria-based.  Many odors are derived from non-bacterial sources (that antimicrobials would have no effect in eliminating).  So while antimicrobials will only remove bacteria based odors, Aveho will remove far more malodors, including bacteria-based odors.  In addition, Aveho can remove these malodors without destroying beneficial bacteria.  The limitations of antimicrobials can be overcome by using Aveho in conjunction with (or instead of) antimicrobials.
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.
Thoroughly blot up as much of whatever it is you’re cleaning up. I can’t emphasize the importance of this step enough. Fold up a rag over it, place a heavy book on it, and stand on the book to make sure you really get it all out (sounds extreme, but it does a good job!) Mix 2 cups of white distilled vinegar with 2 cups of lukewarm water in a large bowl.
This tool is universal and helps to remove the stain and odor of dogs pee. The most effective way is to buy the cheapest soap which does not have any additives or added smells. The best effect can be achieved if the soap is used immediately on the fresh dog pee. Soap is also one of the best removals of bacteria and dirt from the textile surfaces.
I did my movie theater in black because it was the only black I could find. I found out very quickly that almost any kind of stain can be scrubbed out and since it has a rubber backing the stain doesn’t soak through. There is no padding, just rubber on the back of the carpet. Double sided tape holds it down and installation is really easy. The weiner dog took to using my theater as a bathroom, and I didn’t realize it for over a week. Needless to say I was very angry. It came right up and never smelled again. 6 years of slumber parties with kids, me drinking too much, and being used as a base of construction when I was tearing out the bathroom didn’t even phase the carpet. My wife even spilled a 5 gallon bucket of red paint on it once and then tried to be helpful by drying it up while I was at work. That came up too.
If some stubborn soda still remains after you vacuum once, spay a light mist of vinegar and water over it to re-wet the baking soda, and place a dry rag over the area for another hour or two until it dries again. Then vacuum a second time.
Most enzymatic cleaners need to be kept on a wet area for several hours. However, some might use a different process, so be sure to read the instructions on the label. If you’re cleaning wool carpet, make sure the cleaner is wool-safe.
Have multiple litter boxes. Older cats can’t travel too far to do their business. Put litter boxes in rooms where your elderly kitty likes to sleep. In multiple-cat households, having litter boxes in different locations makes it impossible for a dominant cat to “guard” the box and not allow other cats to use it.
When your dog makes a mess during the dog days of summer, the smell is just … the worst. (To say nothing of cat odors, which some of our editors have previously addressed.) The three best-selling canine-related cleaners on Amazon include an enzymatic bacterial spray activated on contact with poop, pee, and puke, as well as a $5 odor eliminator, beloved since the Reagan administration. Beyond these, we asked the following dog walkers, groomers, and holistic-pet-care owners for their solutions to the foulest of pooch accidents.
Thank you so much for this recipe. I used the vinegar and baking soda mixture to remove urine stains and strong odors from my son’s carpeted room. It worked wonders! Both our puppy and our 2 year old are potty training and have peed on his floor several times a week. I made this concoction today (had to half it due to the size of my spray bottle), and I added 4 drops of lavender essential oil too. It worked like a dream. There’s a hint of lavender smell in his room and nothing else.

Hey Alison, thanks for the comment! I think before the peroxide (because it can discolor fabrics) I’d try the enzymatic cleaner again and really saturate the seat. You may want to put plastic under the seat first to catch any potentially smelly liquids that might fall and soak into the carpet below.
So while we’re trying to get back on track, we have a huge uphill battle to fight. Today at work the guys I’m working with said I smell like cat pee. The clothes I’m wearing came straight out of the laundry. A big problem is I can’t smell it anymore. I put the clothes on my nose and I can’t smell anything that smells like cat pee. My sister told me the same thing last week so I’ve been trying to wash my clothes and put them away right away. I feel awful. How am I suppose to fix the problem with odor if I can’t smell it to know if it’s gone or not? My sister said that Odoban makes a laundry detergent that has enzymes and that I should try that. Odoban Sport or something? She said it’s on Amazon. Anyone have experience with that?
Zero Odor Pet is not formulated to be applied directly on people or pets. And, as with any household product, do not spray or apply Zero Odor Pet into the faces of people or pets. When spraying Zero Odor Pet onto hard flooring or above a hard floor, Zero Odor Pet may temporarily cause floors to become slippery. Before using Zero Odor Pet on carpet or fabric, always test a small area for color fastness or adverse chemical reactions. Keep out of the reach of children. Discontinue use immediately in the event of a hypersensitive reaction.
However, if you do want to use the hydrogen peroxide, make sure you only ever use 3% solution and that you always check for color-fastness on an inconspicuous area first as it could bleach the fibers of the carpet, leaving a permanent light patch as a reminder of the accident!
It’s also important to consider your dog’s motivations for peeing inside. Sometimes, inappropriate elimination is a sign of a medical issue. It can also indicate anxiety or emotional distress. If your dog is peeing indoors, start with a vet visit to rule out physical causes.
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.
