“remove urine from rug what takes pet urine smell out of carpet”

Eric, thanks for the suggestion, I will try that. As for the black light, I have three cats so not 100% sure which one has pee’d. But I suspect it might be my oldest cat, who is 19. She does have slightly lowered kidney function due to her age, and I take her to the vet 3-4 times a month to get additional fluids. So you may very well be right about her urine being diluted such that I can smell the stain but not see it with a black light. Just surprises me I wouldn’t see at least an faint outline, especially on items that smell strongly of urine. First I tried a small, bar shaped blacklight that came with one of the cleaners. I thought perhaps it was not powerful enough so ordered another blacklight that is like a flashlight in design and supposed to be much stronger. Neither seems to show any stain, either on the blankets or on the canvas bag. Strange, but I guess I will just trust my nose to treat the areas!
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!
Your recommendation is good. Remember, you may want to soak up the residual moisture with baking soda. Cover it with a paper towel and place a heavy book on top and let it sit overnight. Remove paper towel the next day and see if the baking soda is yellow or white. If white, let it air dry until it can be vacuumed up. If yellow, repeat the process.
Finding the source of the smell is easily done using a black light. he urine will glow a fluorescent yellowish green color. Look on walls too, as high up as eye level. Sometimes cats can spray this far up. Urine has an enzyme which is not easily washed away. I have had great results with white vinegar, soap and water. The vinegar kills or removes the enzyme. (Carpeting may need extra shampooing with the vinegar, due to deep fibers holding onto urine.)
Ah how I can relate to this scenario! After almost 30 foster dogs coming through my house (most not housebroken to start with) I know the battle with lingering odor well-and the frustration of having the dog go outside only to come in and find a blanket or rug to go on. And that feeling of never having your house clean! If none of the above cleaners work for you, you can always try a commercial product (of course natural is best!)-if you go that route I would recommend Biokleen Bac-out. I wish I had a magic solution, but cleaners aside, maybe I can offer some advice that can help.
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 return carpet to use.
Cover the area where you used the enzymatic cleaner with a towel or anything that helps cats and people avoid the spot. If the stain and the cleaner went deep the cushions, it could take several days to dry. If possible, leave the cushions outdoors in the sun to help dry them and remove odors.
Ashley, it won’t ruin your clothes- has never ruined mine! They’re pretty gentle cleansers. Once you’ve efficiently removed the ammonia from them (with the vinegar and baking soda) you might even try an extra wash using OxyClean. I love that stuff and it’s never failed to remove nasty odors. I just don’t know that I would mix it with straight cat urine, so that’s why I suggest using it after thoroughly rinsing the items first.
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.

When urine dries, it leaves behind crystals in the carpet fibre which attract water – so wee stains in carpet tend to always be a bit damp from the moisture in the air.. which means that they always pong a bit.
When cleaning any surface, it’s important to get to the point not only where you cannot smell the urine, but your cat can’t smell it either. “When a cat can smell a previous urine spot (from themselves or another cat), that area is likely to be used again,” George said.
Just an fyi isolating the cat with a litter box food and water in a mud room/laundry room for a few days has stopped one cat I once had. Also we discovered that when we changed from scented to unscented litter the problem stopped immediately. Declawed cats will always have trouble with the liter because it pains the nerve endings in their foot. You can get cedar shavings which is supposed to help this.

Rinse the stained area with water and blot using a towel. If you have a hairdryer, try drying the carpet with it for a few minutes.  The vinegar smell may stick around for up to a few days, but then the urine smell will disappear.
Aveho can be used in a wide variety of applications. Aveho can be applied to fabric, upholstery, carpeting, absorbent materials, hard surfaces, and many other places. Due to the high capacity of Aveho to remove malodors, there is no need to over-spray or over-apply Aveho, as this may leave a residue.  Aveho is water soluble, and may be washed away or vacuumed when dry. 
Popular stain removal products often have lengthy labels telling about how they use “enzymes” to digest and break down stains and odors on a molecular level. It sounds mighty fancy, but with a little time and patience you can easily make your own.
Fortunately, the budget cost doesn’t seem to have had too much of a hit to its efficacy. This stuff works. You’ll be able to handle most stains and odors simply, just spray it down, give it some time to work, and then finish the job.
We recently bought a repurposed cabinet made out of old barn wood. Once we got it home we really think it may have been sprayed. They had two cats where they live. I can’t see where the damage is. How do we clean this without ruining the barn wood
I use this machine with an accompanying solution (you can pick which Bissell formula works best for your problem area) to remove pet stains (including the more than occasional hairball) from our carpet.

Thanks Dreamhowl, I hope Murdoch, my JRT is not embarrassed that his picture is being shared across the Internet, portraying him as a slightly incontinent elderly terrier! It will do his street cred no good at all!
