“what gets rid of urine smell +remove urine odor leather”

Hi, so we got 2, 3 month old, kittens about a month ago. Initially they had zero trouble finding and using the litter box. I decided to try to potty train them. I’ve done quite a bit of research on it but despite reading several articles that say not to rush them, I thought my cats were smarter than others 🙂 I was wrong! I have now realized the error of my ways and feel that I have made many many steps to correct my errors. My biggest issue was changing from the old-school cat litter to the flushable wheat kind too fast. I have given up on even trying to potty train until I can get both of the kittens to use the litter box every single time. I think it is only one of the cats that is having any trouble, but he either pees or poops near the litter box or he pees in my bedroom in the corner. I have tried several cleaning solutions but I’m planning on using your recipe today to completely rid the smell. If I am able to get out the urine smell, is that enough to deter him from using it again? Or do you have any other suggestions? I clean their litter box out twice a day and I did some research and found that some cats don’t like a lot of litter in the litter box, it gives them a quicksand feeling, so I have a small pan next to the larger one with only a small amount of litter in it. I still came home from work last night to find poop in the bathtub next to the litter box. Please help!! Thank you!!
On hardwood or laminate floors, use paper towels, an absorbent cloth, or a mop to sop up the pee. I these reusable, super-absorbent cleaning cloths. Just throw them in the washing machine after use.
We provide odor removal vendor service for auto dealerships and private party vehicles of all kinds. We remove odors from tobacco, cigar, marijuana, vapes, pet, mildew, and more that even the best detailers leave behind.
There are definitely some tricks to making sure that you’ve handled pet stains and odors in the best way possible. There are also some homemade remedies which people recommend and some of them are super efficacious.
Wash clothes. Throw the clothes in the washing machine with a regular dose of laundry detergent, 2-4 cups of white vinegar (depending on how large the load is), and a liberal scoop of baking soda. Use the smallest setting you can so you can really get the fabric agitating in the machine. The white vinegar deodorizes the urine, while the baking soda helps lift the urine out of the fabric. Wash on hot.
It did help me to remove the urine stains and a smell. However, it was awful chemical odor. I’ve checked on internet regarding the Peroxide toxicity…OMG, the vapor of Peroxide is toxic when inhaled. I tried to dry the mattress with a hair dryer and opened all the windows for a night and a day after to ventilate the room. But, still the smell did not go away completely. I wonder if this method of cleaning the surface is safe at all.
If you’ve been dealing with cat urine outside the litter box, the best feeling is knowing that the problem is over. I can report that my cat no longer considers the carpeted corner of the room to be a restroom.
Eew, that smell is right! I’ve had a few stains in some rugs around the house which I’ve tried everything to get the smell out. The rugs are way to big to put in the washer and didn’t want to go through the hassle (or cost) of getting it professionally cleaned so I tried the Sunny & Honey spray and it truly is a miracle, well worth every penny for any other frustrated dog parents who are neat freaks like me!
Using stream cleaner is a bad idea. It will cause the stain to set and reeks something fierce. We’ve used the vinegar and baking soda mixture but you can also try Biokleen Bac-Out. It’s an enzymatic cleaner. Our dog peed in our room and it stunk. Put this stuff on spot and it doesn’t stink anymore. You can buy it at most health food stores and online are Amazon. Best of luck.
You go to the pantry to get a fresh roll of paper towels and are relieved that they are the extra absorbent and the super strong type with the beefy guy on the package. Ripping open the package you assault the offensive sausage or mop up the little ocean of urine. After cleaning up the land mines or your yellow river you mount an assault on the odor using a bazooka size air freshener, you fumigate the entire room.
Bubba’s calls their enzyme cleaner “the pet stain and odor TERMINATOR” because it destroys stubborn urine smells for good. It eats away urine bacteria to prevent re-marking. You can spot-treat with Bubba’s, or add it to a load of laundry to wash dog bets and blankets stained with pee.
Carpets or carpet fibers seem to hold on to odors and linger for days. One of the first things you can do (and yes, I’ve mentioned this before) is to open some windows to air out the room and give it a good vacuuming. All little fresh air never hurt anyone and it’s great for battling odors.
Spray enzyme cleaner over the area. Non-toxic and effective, enzymatic cleaners work by breaking down stains into their basic elements, eliminating the compounds that create smells and stains. Using an enzymatic cleaner is the best way to help break down the proteins left over from the urine, removing the smell as well as the impulse for the pet to urinate in the same spot again.
FYI – I am not finding it online, but I believe it says on the bottle of the Nature’s Miracle, that if you use another cleaning product first it can lock in the odor, keeping the enzyme from working correctly. Kind of like trying to get a stain out of your clothes after running through the dryer. – James Jenkins♦ Jun 22 ’14 at 15:38
Hello, one of my 2 cats has peed (a lot!) on my sofa – so that two of the large seat cushions, as well as the space between them (down into the sofa structure) are soaked. I have sprayed/soaked the affected areas with Fresh ‘n Clean, but just noticed that the label states that the formula includes baking soda deodorizers, but no enzymes. I have two main questions: (1) Since it does not contain enzymes, is Fresh ‘n Clean one of those that only mask the odor? Is it not effective in preventing repeat transgressions? (2) After soaking everything with the spray, when is the best time to launder – immediately or after the spray has soaked in & dried? Please respond as soon as possible! Thanks for any help!
First, I’d say take it to have the upholstery professionally cleaned, or purchase a heated upholstery machine of your own (like the Little Green Machine I’ve mentioned before). Once you’ve gotten as much of that urine up and out and rinsed as possible open up all of the windows and let it dry very well to keep mildew and mold from growing. Open up a couple of boxes of baking soda and set them around the vehicle. I also really like solid air fresheners from brands like Citrus Magic and Odor Genie (both can be found on Amazon) for helping to eliminate pet odors.
Clean the cage. If you have rats, mice, gerbils, ferrets, rabbits, and other pets that live in cages with bedding, the cage could be making your whole house stink. Gently remove your pet and place the pet somewhere safe, such as a second cage. Then, get to cleaning:
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!
Brittany, the vinegar, water, baking soda, peroxide and dish soap treatment works on mattresses! Thats what I do when my cat goes on my bed! If the spot is fresh and still wet, blot up as much of it as you can. Then pour 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water on the spot. Let sit a min then blot that up as much as you can. Then sprinkle a handful of baking soda over the spot. Then drizzle a mixture of peroxide & dish soap over the baking soda. Let sit about 15 mins then use your fingers or a sponge/brush of some sort and work it into it. Then let set to dry (putting a fan facing it helps make drying process faster). Then use the hose of your vaccum to sweep it up when its dry! Stain and smell gone!
Give your pet a bath. Pets love to play, which often means getting into messes. Regular bathing is a good idea for dogs and ferrets, and some other pets could use a wash now and then as well. Get your pet (and their favorite bath toy, if they have one) into a bathtub, wash basin, or bucket. Use a hose or bucket to wet your pet’s fur. Apply pet shampoo to the fur and lather it in with your hands until it’s nice and soapy. Rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of shampoo, and towel dry their fur. They should smell great, and look great as a bonus.
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.
Apologies I actually posted that comment before I completed it. I would love a suggestion for the best way to clean ceramic tiles! Also, since the bathroom is a small space should I use the same products for every surface or would it be ok to use vinegar and bleach on different surfaces in the same room? Thank you!
Thanks so much for this! One of my cats peed on the carpet and it went unnoticed until the entire downstairs of the house smelled awful. I tried woolite spray which didn’t really work. Then I found your solution and it worked amazingly! Thanks so much!
Hi Mary. Question: I have black oriental rugs which have been doused with cat urine. Will the peroxide fade them? As expensive as they are, I am afraid to try without an opinion. Thank you. Lynn in FL [email protected]
