Avoid ammonia. High in alkaline, ammonia should never be used to clean pet stains. It will leave a sticky residue in the carpet and damage the carpet fibers, attracting dirt and other debris. It will also attract pets back to the same area, because ammonia contains the same uric acids and salts that are present in urine, making it all too tempting for your pet to remark the area. Never use ammonia on pet stains. 
There is a strong, legitimate, and chemically important reason to use an enzyme cleaner to clean cat urine stains. Home-made mixtures or typical household cleaners simply do not contain the required ingredients to remove ALL the components of cat urine. Vinegar and baking soda work to neutralize the odor temporarily, and hydrogen peroxide is 30% more oxidizing than chlorine. But cat urine is composed of things that REQUIRE enzymes to break down the chemical bonds.
Get into a regular cleaning routine. Cleaning can be a drag, but the best way to stop your home from smelling like your pets is to clean regularly and stay on top of messes. A good cleaning routine will include regular vacuuming, floor washing, laundry, and dusting. For the best results:
Anyone who has dealt with cat urine issues (and really loves their cat, like I do) knows the frustration that goes comes along with it. Why do our furry loved ones do this to us? Since we may not ever know the answer, at least we have SUN to clean it up in the meantime. Not only does SUN smell great (not like urine at all) my cat does not urinate on the same spot again after it has completely dried and I have completed my “method. I wrote this review on my accord and made it so detailed because I know there someone out there who is at their breaking point and needs try something new. For only 7.99, you have to try this stuff! My only compliant… please make a bigger bottle!
We live in the foothills (rural) and there are a few feral cats in the area that are fighting for territory. I was very used to seeing spray spots all over my tires. One day I got in my pickup which I don’t drive all that often and it wreaked of cat pee. After research I pulled up the drive side mat and the carpet was SOAKED with cat pee. I always keep the windows close and upon further research I determined that it appears the urine is being sprayed from under the bottom door seal? Is this possible? With how much upward force/flow can a Tom spray his urine?
The below list provides five most popular options for the best pet odor eliminator that will do the job well in removing urine stains as well as urine smell from your carpet, sofas and other furniture and surfaces. Make sure to read other pet owners’ reviews to find the best fit specifically for your Fido and your household, since not all of them are identical.

Every product will have the instructions on the bottle label, so make sure to follow those. However, the process is almost identical for all of them. Here are the six simple steps for the most effective way to get rid of dog urine stains and smell:
After cleaning up my tile floors, I routinely steam cleaned the tile floors after vacuuming to keep down the dust, which also kept the house smelling fresh and ensure elimination of any residual odours from places where the floor was cleaned with vinegar after a deliberate cat “accident”. Unfortunately none of this cleaning discouraged his territorialism and he continued to pee on the floors under the ground floor windows that were low to the outside where he could observe incursions into his territory. Recently I heard that, after thorough cleaning, you can wipe with pure essential oil of orange peel to discourage use of those areas (have not tried this but intend to if my new kitty follows in my old cat’s bad ways!, but my old cat HATED oranges and orange peel, so I think it might have worked).
I will give this product 5 stars but really don’t know yet. Honestly, I hope to not be able to review for a long time. Bought it for skunks being here and luckily my furbaby was not had an encounter for months. Read about it on “FB Mastiffs Rule Drool Is Cool” . Have found that the tomato juice does not work nor does the homemade recipe. Hoping this might be the solution. 🙂
When a cat pees on rugs, carpets or furnishings it can leave a very unpleasant distinctive cat smell that is hard to get rid of. This urine odor stimulates the cat to urinate in that area again thus perpetuating the problem. Once you remove the odor permanently the cat will no longer keep going back to the same spot to re-offend.
You can follow all this up with a a nice homey smell like oranges and cinnamon. Take two tablespoons of cinnamon and some orange peels and simmer them gently in 4 cups of water. This fresh scent will permeate throughout your house.

2. Mix a solution of fifty percent white vinegar and fifty percent water. You must use an enough amount of this solution to reach the carpet fibers down. Work the solution in with a scrubbing brush to ensure it penetrates the carpet fibers below. Now blot the area again using the paper towel. The vinegar will neutralize the ammonia of the urine. If you own a wet/dry shop vacuum use that to remove excess moisture.
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.
For odors in your refrigerator, it may be as simple as going through the contents and removing old and smelly foods. That being said – if the old or expired food items or spills haven’t been cleaned up and have been in the fridge for a long period of time – you may need to take everything out and give it a good cleaning.

Hi, I was just wondering if you knew any ways to remove the smell of cat urine off something that cannot be easily washed – a laptop for example please ??? I have a new kitten who unfortunately decided to wee on something that was on laptop (to hide laptop from view of people outside) and it soaked through onto laptop (which still works). I have tried anti-bac wiping it (lemon scented) – and still stinks. It didn’t get into the laptop – just onto the surface of the lid.
Trish, most enzymatic cleaners work by supporting the growth of the naturally occurring bacteria that will, over time, break down the urine, and thus, the odor. So yeah, it is possible that it’s still working. However, I’d call them back on like…Friday. At least that way you’ve given it a full week. The thing is, you paid for a service that they said they could do, and if it doesn’t work, the alternative is to tear up the carpet and then you’ve completely wasted all the money you spent on the cleaning service plus you’re gonna be spending more. Before you call them, however, bring other people in the room (as embarrassing as it may be) to see if they smell it, too.
