“remove cat urine smell -urine stains out of carpet”

Febreeze are some of my favorite products because their spray scent is never too strong. That is exactly how this spray is! It smells good enough to cover any animal smell but not to to strong to make you sneeze or anything.
I have a cat who peed on his bed, and secretly in both carriers – everything comes apart so I have been running them through the washing machine but with no success smell-wise. Is there a way to turn one of these mixes into a soak or add to the laundry machine?
This stuff removes the smell from anything! My 16-year old son has shoes and feet that smell to the high heavens. We’ve tried everything — including skin prescriptions. I sprinkle this in his shoes — the odor is GONE!! I put it in the pantry to stop dry goods from going rancid. The fridge, garage, son’s room, trash cans……. forget the air fresheners — just get rid of the bad smells. This in your answer — and a whole lot more economical than Fabreeze.
Hi I saw your post about kitty having trouble keeping dinner down. We have three cats and our princess Madeleine had this issue. She is also 12. She had always been fine (our babies eat supercoat and dine) but as she got older her stomach got more sensitive. The only thing we’ve had luck with is kitty soup. Done and fancy feast make it. She loves it, has put a little weight on and keeps it down 🙂 hope it helps
The vinegar will neutralize the ammonia and hydrogen peroxide is a powerful oxidizer capable of killing bacteria which cause the urine smells. Baking soda is a well known deodorizer which absorbs odors. Sprinkle it on your carpet monthly then vacuum up to keep your carpet smelling fresh all the time.
Cover the stain with paper towels or rags and walk lightly over or place something heavy on top to soak up any excess liquid. Sprinkle a generous handful of baking soda over the stain when no more liquid can be pulled up, and mix together ½ cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon of dish liquid. Slowly pour the solution over the stain and baking soda. Gently scrub the mixture into the carpet fibers with a scrub-brush or cloth, and then let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Vacuum the area thoroughly. For tough stains, repeat the above steps.
Put on your rubber gloves, spray from the outside edge of the stain towards the middle, working the vinegar solution into the carpet fibers with your fingers or a clean, lint-free cloth, towards the middle of the stain.
Keep laundry and blankets off the floor. Because cats just like to add to the chaos, keep piles of dirty clothes and folded blankets off the floor. These are like cat magnets. First they cuddle, then they pee.
Just like in the human world, so many unwanted feline behaviors can be explained by stress. Inappropriate urination is no exception. Cats commonly urinate outside the litter box because of unhappiness and anxiety over changes in the home environment, restriction of their natural behaviors, abuse, or unpleasant dynamics with other cats. If your cat recently started exhibiting this behavior after something in the home changed, it’s probably because of stress. Take a close look at your cat’s surroundings and determine what could be stressing them out, then neutralize those issues as best you can. Offering your cat a safe space to hide out or a tree from which they can overlook the home can help them to de-stress.
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.
The first step is the most obvious. Clean any affected areas as thoroughly as possible. That doesn’t mean a quick vacuum or running over your hardwood with a Swiffer. Pet odor removal is only effective if you give affected areas a good, deep cleaning. Scrub and mop hard surfaces as thoroughly as possible, and think about using a vinegar or baking soda solution as you do so. Both are rumored to work wonders when it comes to removing pet smells. And if you’re dealing with pet odor removal from carpeting, hire a professional. Make sure they use the hot water extraction method (also known as “steam cleaning”), since it provides the deepest clean, and ask if they use a truck mounted unit. These units do a much better job of getting down into the carpet pile, where much of the pet smell resides, than other professional carpet cleaning techniques, or any homeowner operated unit you can rent.
My husband tried steam cleaning with “distilled viniger, equal amount of water & some lavender oil” a recipe he got from Google! I came home 3 days later from out of town, not knowing he had done this and the smell was horrible when I walked in. Thought the dogs had pee’d and come to find out it was viniger!!!! We have white’ish Berber carpet in LR/DR….stains, well, still there! Is it because of the Berber? Does anyone have any other suggestions for me? The stains are because the dog is big, can’t bathe him everyday!! Any suggestions would be graciously appreviated. Thanks in advance 😉
I have two long haired cats and definitely appreciate the febreeze effects. I also have a nice smelling house and it doesn’t soak what I spray it on. My cats favorite lounge spot is my leather couch and it is yet to damage my leather. I highly recommend!
My cat peed down the floor heat register and I cannot get rid of the smell. I have used Natures Miracle by pouring it down the vent and then wiping with a long handled brush several times, but the smell is still there any suggestions?
To remove cat urine and dog urine stains on carpet, mattresses and upholstery: Blot with a dry clean cloth or towel to absorb excess liquid. Spray directly onto stain until completely covered. Allow to stand for 3 minutes. Blot area with a clean damp cloth. Repeated applications may be necessary for heavy or old stains. Keep children and pets from contact with sprayed area until dry. Safe for all colorfast upholstery, fabrics and carpets, including stain-resistant carpeting. Do not use on silk or leather upholstery.
A: Remove mildew odor from carpet by drying the air in the room and removing the mildew itself. The process requires removing the carpet and taking it to a sunny area for several days. Kill any remaining mildew spores by spraying with dilute hydrogen peroxide and drying the carpet.
Wet paper or cloth towels with cool water, and lay them over the spot. Put a heavy object on top of the wet towels and leave the towels overnight. When you remove it in the morning, you can assess whether or not you need to take more extreme measures.
Any parent or pet owner has dealt with the unfortunate task of cleaning urine “accidents” from the floor and carpet. It is a natural occurrence when potty or house training and when the child or pet are sick. Carpet cleaners can be pricy and can stain expensive rugs.
Note that some enzymatic cleaners may not work if other chemicals were used beforehand to try to treat the stain. It is generally a good idea to try the enzymatic cleaner first, and saturate the area well. Follow the manufacturer’s directions closely and allow to dry for several days. You may not have to do anything else.
I really hope you don’t have any pets. You’re part of the problem of over crowded pounds, unnecessary euthenasia and why some dogs have a hard time getting adopted. My dog has problems peeing in the house because she’s scared all the time. I wouldn’t be surprised if her constant fear, flinching, shakes and anxiety was caused by someone just like you.
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.
Before we get to the nitty gritty of how to remove cat urine from clothing, rugs, and fabrics, it’s important to remember that most of these accidents are preventable. The reasons are many that a cat may choose to urinate outside of her litter box. Sometimes it’s innocent – something random to us but instinctual to her inspired her fancy, while other motivations may be more serious, like an unchecked medical condition that requires attention. Whatever the reason, here are a few tips to prevent your little buddy from creating any more havoc:
Stinkiness is a part of everyday life and can cause embarrassment and unwanted attention. You stink.  I stink.  We ALL stink… at some point in our lives.  Some more than others (you know who you are).  Traditional odor control solutions such as air fresheners, activated carbon, baking soda, antimicrobials or other complex chemical systems all have a number of limitations.  We’ve accepted those limitations because these products usually help lessen the stink and make it more bearable.  We didn’t know any better…until now. 
Remove mold from hard surfaces. Mold has a particular smell that can permeate your entire home. It’s important for your health and the smell of your home to deal with any mold problems, such as in the shower, on tiles, in sinks, or in other damp areas of the house. To kill mold:[4]

It did help me to remove the urine stains 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.
How to know that the dog urine stain is definitely gone? Because it’s the bacteria for dog’s urine that causes the bad smell, obviously you won’t be able to see it. Thus, after you’ve treated the area, get a UV blacklight (pet urine detector) and light the area. A well-treated area with the best pet odor eliminator should pass the UV detector test.
