“what gets cat pee smell out +best way to remove urine smell”

Diana, that’s a really good question. What is the material? For canvas tennis shoes I’d try soaking them in hot water and a cup of OxiClean Versatile, then running them through once more on a hot setting and letting them air dry, preferably in the sun. For something like suede or leather, I would wipe down the surface of the shoes with a clean cloth and a mixture of white vinegar and water. I would clean the inner sole with an upholstery machine like the BISSELL Little Green ProHeat.
Pick up and wash laundry. Laundry that’s piled up on the floor can start to take on a musty odor, and this can make the entire room smell.[1] What’s worse, wet laundry can be a breeding ground for mold. Collect laundry from all over the house, separate it into loads, and wash it in the washing machine.
Bad odors often indicate the presence of harmful bacteria, mold, or other contaminants – which is why it is important to identify the root cause and deal with the problem at its source. Stinky smells caused by mold, pets, cooking, fire or cigarette smoke can not only affect your lifestyle, but also cause loss of property value or trigger adverse health effects. A healthy home is important to the health of your family, don’t ignore a bad smell in house, workplace or car, it could be a sign of unhealthy indoor air quality.
My husband and I were thinking about taking him to ‘doggy school’, but then again, it’s extremely expensive, and the nearest ‘doggy school’ is far away from us. Maybe you have some advice? THANK YOU!!!!
Unlike enzymes, Odorcide 210 works fast on the worst urine, organic decay, feces, and mold and mildew odors with no dwell time and no danger to pets or people. Use it on carpets, canvas, clothing, floors, and walls. It’s also effective as a laundry soak or rinse, and as a surface spray.
Accidents will happen, particularly if you have a young puppy or an older dog. How to get the smell of dog wee out of carpet is big business, judging by the number of products that are on the market to do the job! But do you really need these chemicals? In this article, I am going to show you some simple tips for how to get dog urine out of carpet without chemicals, fuss or expense!
The only way to get rid of urine odor is to use a product that has an active enzyme in it. Vinegar will only temporarily get rid of the odor. If the urine gets into the pad of the carpet, you’re sunk. If you replace your carpet, it may be worth while to get a pad that has the plastic cover to prevent it from getting wet. I’ve done this and am happy I spent the few extra dollars.
I am now 90 percent satisfied I have won the battle of cat pee. I will not be 100 percent satisfied until I replace all the carpet but that will not happen until my cat crosses the rainbow in which she will probably pee on because that is how she rolls.
Most cleaners and odor removers work their best if you attack the problem as soon as it happens. The quicker you get to the disaster the better off you’ll be. Enzymatic solutions are particularly useful this way since fresher material will find the material more “palatable” in the immediate aftermath.
There is one thing…I’ve used the solution for years. But I make only what I need for that one moment. It will not work if you let it sit. I also do not use it in a spray bottle. I pour tiny bits and saturate the area. The only time I’ve used a large amount, I made a bucket of the stuff. My cat got stuck in the bathroom by shutting the door for a weekend and peed EVERYWHERE on natural stone tile. I made a bucket at a time, and it took three times pouring it on the floor and swabbing it around and letting it dry…. but it is not no longer there!
Smoke odors from a fireplace fire that got a little out of control can leave a powerful charred smell. Cooking fires caused by leaving something in the oven too long or oil that splashes in a frying pan can fill the kitchen and surrounding rooms with a white protein smoke. Even scented candles left burning too long can leave an over-powering odor.
Add 1/2 a cup of orange and lemon peels to the spray bottle mixture. Chopping them into 1-inch pieces will allow the natural oils to be released into the homemade pet odor remover. The citrus peels add a fresh, clean scent and deters your dog from relieving himself in the same spot. Once all of the ingredients are combined together, secure the nozzle of the spray bottle and shake lightly, mixing the ingredients together. You now have a homemade odor remover that will help eliminate pet odors and remove stains in your home. You can use this pet odor recipe when cleaning doorways, a common place for male dogs to mark their territory.
UPDATE: Dec 20, 2014… my beloved cat, in her effort to tell me how much she wanted to go outside right that MOMENT, spilled a glass of RED WINE on beige carpet around 3AM. I didn’t realize this until waking, and found that it was soaked into the carpet…and some had started to dry. Of course, company is coming… classic panic moment… sounds so cliche but this is the truth (it IS the Saturday before Christmas)… soaked it with Rocco and *poof!* now I am only left with a wet, clean-smelling spot to let dry while I wait for my friends to arrive. This stuff CONTINUES to amaze me. I am so glad they have it in gallon size…I LOVE IT.
Thanks Patsy, even though this is a method I have used successfully over many years when my dogs have had the occasional accident, it is always good to receive affirmation from a professional, thanks again for leaving a comment, Alison
The best way for a homeowner to perform simple odor removal is with a readily accessible substance. Homeowners have been getting rid of foul smells with home remedies for decades. While these substances are easy to apply to the carpet and are effective for smaller jobs, they aren’t feasible for more extensive problems. Also, they don’t typically eliminate the cause of the scent but cover it up instead. This just masks the health hazard in the room and so it remains a threat.
A: If the stain is new and still wet, a thorough cold water rinse can remove the bulk of the urine and mitigate or remove any odor before it sets in. The best method for removing dog urine odors from upholstery depends on timing.
Add a bit of bleach into the water (ratio of 1:10) and stir it. Apply the resulting mixture on the spot where your dog left some pee. In 20 minutes wash the whole surface or even the whole carpet with the water.
My dog took a long time to potty train – almost 9 months! I took her to training school, but you could consider bringing a dog trainer into your home to provide individualized attention and training. Also, if you’re not dealing well with chemical carpet cleaners, you could consider a natural-based product. But it’s always recommended to test a carpet cleaning product on an area that’s not visible to make sure it works with your carpet and doesn’t discolor or damage it. Good luck!
I that’s a little drastic and not fair to the dog/puppy. You don’t have to cut the sub floor out, if you do it right and there is no visible stain on carpet you can replace the area of stained padding for the sub-floor paint over affected area with kills paint, available at Walmart and lumber stores carpet to use.
Now, here is my problem: I brought a stray Cat, who was in a bad fight with another animal, to a No-Kill Rescue Shelter which was about 45 minutes from my house. Unfortunately during the trip he peed in the cat carrier which leaked into the front seat on my car and I didn’t notice until I got back in my car. The smell was making me gag so bad I had to stop at a store and get something! I ended up getting an enzymatic clear which cleaned the spot but didn’t do much for the odor. Since then I have tried other enzymatic cleaners as well as Vinegar, soap and baking soda solution, as well as vinegar alone. It has calms the odor but I still smell it while in the car, especially on hot days. I will try this one with Hydrogen peroxide though. If this doesn’t work I may have to buy a new seat! Thank you for all the advice!
If you’re faced with set-in stains or smells you can’t get rid of, it may be time to call in a professional, as sometimes spot-removal isn’t enough, Hatch said. “Unfortunately, urine doesn’t just stay at the top of carpet, it soaks into carpet padding and backing and can even soak into the sub floor,” he said. Spot cleaning can only get the urine at the face fibers of the carpet, and to truly remove the bacteria and the odors they can create, you’ll need a professional, he said.
I took in two street cats in 2006. They are excellent in grooming themselves and didn’t need any litter box training. One of the cats has a poop smell on his scruff while the other does not. I thought it may have been a temporary thing, but it is still very much there. Is there a natural way I can get rid of this odor, especially since it is directly located on cat’s scruff area? Thanks!
Please don’t keep a pit outdoors. They need their people. You can use a puppy pad and train her to use it. I use adult human incontinence pads – the extra large size for my dog. They’re cheaper than the specialty dog ones. The other option is to check out eBay or Amazon for doggie diapers. They come in a disposable type and various cloth versions where you put a pad in it. The pet stores carry them, too, but they’re more expensive. Keep your dog sleeping beside you.
Love this thanks.. however what is the ratios for using it in the carpet cleaner?? I have three dogs and the youngest one who isnt so young anymore likes to go where ever she wants so now the others are following suit!!
I had come on here to find a way to remove pet stains. After reading through the comments, I found one person who said about Genesis 950. I had never heard of it before, however I had gone through virtually every cleaner at the pet store and nothing was working. I was about to give up and replace the carpet . . . I probably could have with everything I spent on cleaners.
Unlike typical cleaning products, odor eliminating solutions are specifically formulated to remove tough smells like urine left by pets. For these products to work, they have to fight the specific bacteria found in animals’ urine – the cause of smell.
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?

Also, has anyone else had an issue not being able to see urine stains on dark colored items? I also have two very dark burgundy blankets that I know were peed on, but have tried two different black lights and do not see the stain on either. They were on top of each other on a bed and the cat peed in one spot that was wet to the touch. Now they have dried and I have had both in a completely dark room and used blacklight to try to find the stains and can’t. Does blacklight not work on black or dark colored items?
