“get stains out of mattress +cat spraying odor removal”

LR, I would give it a good soak in soapy water with some vinegar, then I’d rinse it really well, then I’d give it a soak with some enzymatic cleaner and let it air dry. As for not being able to see pee on dark objects…. that’s new to me. It makes me wonder if your cat has very dilute urine. It’s possible it has some kidney problems. Might want to see a vet.
Once the paper towel becomes somewhat dry (instead of “drenched”), spray on vinegar and water. Place another clean paper towel on top, then get a heavy object such as a book or a suitcase (depending on how big the pee was!) and lay it over the towel; let set to absorb for 1/2 hour or so. Then you can spray on hydrogen peroxide and wipe with a clean wet rag. Set the book on the spot again and let set another 1/2 hour. You can sprinkle baking soda on later once you think the spot is pretty removed. SOMETIMES YOU MUST REPEAT THIS APPLICATION. You can also use carpet freshener too.
I read through all the comments and was definitely enlightened. Thanks for all the information. Although if Jenn refuses to snip snip…then that’s her choice, why do we become so angry when someone has an opposing opinion of our own?
Adding to the stench are the powerful hormones that cats eliminate when they pee. Unless male cats are neutered, their testosterone-spiked urine signals other males to stay away and lets females know they’re around.
A. First, it’s important to determine if your cat is truly spraying, or whether he is urinating. With urine spraying, cats tend to stand upright and eliminate a small amount on vertical surfaces. Cats that are urinating usually squat and eliminate larger amounts on horizontal surfaces. If you’re not sure, it’s best to have your cat examined by a veterinarian to determine the cause of the problem before you try to treat it on your own.
Using a blacklight. Because of its chemical properties, pet urine shows up under a blacklight, specifically its scent-creating chemicals even when the stain has been dried or are days old. Outline these area in chalk or mark then with a sticky note to help you clean then when you turn on the lights.

As air cycles through the air cleaner, the CADR measures the volume of air actually moving through the system, and the percentage and size of the particles being removed. CADR tests for pollutants like tobacco smoke, dust and pollen. These tests determine, in cubic feet per minute (CFM), how effective the air cleaner is at removing specific pollutants.
Another idea is to clean out your home heating ducts. This is a place where gunk and cat fur can get trapped and so can the smells. You can hire someone to do this or checkout YouTube videos on how to do it yourself. Soaking the grates themselves also couldn’t hurt anything, especially if it’s possible that the cats have peed on these as well. (Of course, make sure that if you take the vent covers off, the cats are contained and won’t crawl in).

Reviewers who had rented or purchased expensive steam cleaners wish they would have saved their money by purchasing Nature’s Miracle Urine Destroyer Stain and Residue Eliminator from the beginning, as it has cleaned what the others had left behind.
Inappropriate urination is more than a nuisance. Besides in the case of cats who haven’t yet been litterbox trained, urinating outside of a designated area in the house usually signals that something is wrong. Cats don’t like to urinate in places where they can’t cover up their waste – so if your cat is doing this, they’re probably no happier about it than you are.
What if you have a situation where you can’t do any of that? Several years ago someone an item soaked in cat pee into our cloth lined book drop. Now every time it’s hot the entire book drop smells like cat pee. I’ve tried things like Febreeze and products that promise to remove urine odors to no avail. Even though the lining can be removed and washed, the county is not willing to do that and I can’t get permission to just do it myself. So what other options are there? Short of me filing a health complaint.
Note that if you mix them together in a spray bottle, the baking soda may foam so it is best to mix them and then pour into the spray bottle once the foam has receded. Using the mixture is really easy. You just have to spray the area that needs to be treated and let it sit for about an hour or so. You may want to ventilate the room or turn a fan on so that the smell doesn’t get to you. When you come back, your stains should be completely gone and the best part is that they will take the smell with them.
