“urine smell out of mattress -pet urine smell”

I have four cats and have never had a problem with them urinating anywhere but in the litterbox until a few days ago we noticed the second bedroom had a smell! one of the cats urinated on the blankets/comforter on the bed we tried washing it with detergent and white vinegar but are having no luck! is there anything else I can try? I hate to throw them all out and replace them would baking soda help? we have washed them several times now with no luck.
I have 13 rescued and adopted cats. I have a large sun room with cat trees plus a cat yard that is protected. There are 4 cats that stay inside our home and the rest get to come in a few at a time. One of the cats who is the bully has been spraying all over in house and in sunroom. All of my cats are neutered or spayed. My vet put my cat on Prozac and has been on for three days now. He has stopped attacking the other cats but it takes about a week for them to stop spraying. They go off of this med very slowly to where they are only getting two a week. Well he sprayed into two brand new wicker baskets that I just purchased. How can I get the smell out?

I just moved into a new place, the people who lived in it before us had dogs. The pet urine smell is actually pretty strong. I’ve used pet urine, stain and odor spray, it didn’t help. We used a carpet scrubber on it twice and I don’t think its helping. Any helpful hits or I just want the smell gone!
Vacuum floors and upholstery. Dirty carpets and furniture can harbor bad smells that make your living areas stink. To remove dust and smelly particles, vacuum all the carpets in the house with a wide brush attachment. To remove dusty and musty smells from furniture, vacuum all upholstered furniture using an upholstery attachment.
We have an apartment also and I’ve wondered about what they’re going to do with this carpet when we move out, because our pet deposit is too small to be enough to replace all the carpet… BUT we do use baking soda/vinegar mixture on it to clean then vinegar sprayed on top out of a spray bottle. Seems to work well, and she doesn’t go to the same spots every time, it seems pretty random.
While it’s not a standalone product, if you’ve invested in a carpet cleaner then you’re going to be quite happy with Bissell 2X Pet Stain & Odor remover. It’s also a lot cheaper than most standalone options.

Another place toilet odors may be coming from is the wax ring. It may have eroded and needs to be replaced. If this is something you are not comfortable with doing yourself, call a professional plumber.
White vinegar is a miraculous substance that will get rid of even the old accident stains that might have been missed if a dog did a “ninja-pee” behind the bookshelves or something. Baking soda is nature’s odor remover, and teamed up with vinegar, does a great job at getting rid of odors!

I have 2 older poms, Bear is 10 and had a bad time for several months of drinking every drop of water, several times a day and then constantly having accidents all over the house. And every time I took them out, he went a lot! First vet visit I was told that his urine was too watered to tell if he had any infection. Then told they wanted him brought back for expensive testing to check for cushings disease. Since I couldn’t afford $500-$1000 in testing medications, I decided to change their dry food to something more reputable. Since taking them off just 6 and on to nature’s balance then blue wilderness (slightly more affordable) Bear is doing great! Maybe 2-3 accidents in last 5 months! (That may have been my fault for not getting them outside for too long) I am not trying to talk bad about any vets or food labels, I just want to share this experience because it may be helpful to someone.
Like charged media filters, Electrostatic Precipitators use electrostatic charges to safely clean air and neutralize odors. As air is pushed through many static prone fibers, electronic cells charge airborne particles and capture them inside of collector plates. As electrostatic precipitators dont require filters, you dont have to worry about replacing the filters. Simply wash the collector plates and insert back into the air purifier to receive fresh, clean air.
When we moved to our new home, everything looked ok. After a time s nasty smell started coming from the carpet. Then I remembered that the previous owners had cats at home and because we liked the carpet we didn’t throw it. At the end i tried whatever came to my mind to get rid if the smell, but it didn’t help. At the end I called carpet cleaning guys (http://www.mariettacleaning.com ) who helped me out. So these tips above work great if the stain is fresh, but not when it’s penetrated deep in the carpet’s fibers.
Eco Housekeeping Tip: Pet Odor Eliminator – spray bottle, water, mouthwash, newspaper. combine 2 parts water to 1 part mouthwash spray mixture on soiled area, do not soak. Then place newspape (Swell Bottle Essential Oils)
My 16 yr old granddaughter just spent a week with me. She left 3 1/2 weeks ago. I was changing the bedding because another guest was coming, and to my horror, I could see where she had peed multiple times on my BRAND NEW MATTRESS!!! I had a thick padded mattress cover on it. If she had told me I would have done something immediately. I read this blog, and many others. The peroxide, baking soda, and dish soap was the one that came up most often. I had an unopened bottle of peroxide, but the use by date on the bottle was 2007. Yes, 2007. I fixed the mixture, it took 2 spray bottles full to treat the area. I kid you not, by the time I was finished spraying, the stain was gone. That was just unbelievable!!!!!
White Vinegar. To rid your linoleum or hardwood floors of that “not so fresh feeling”, simply mix a 3:1 solution of warm water and White Vinegar in your mop bucket and get to work. Remember to crack a window or two. Vinegar has a good clean smell, but it’s a strong one.
Clean food-related appliances. Any appliance that comes in contact with food can be a source of smells in your house, especially if there have been recent spills. If you’re not sure where the smell is coming from, clean all your food-related appliances, including:[8]
Don’t punish your cat for inappropriate urination. Instead, attack the problem systematically by first eliminating any residual odors with a strong enzymatic cleaner. This will prevent your cat from continuing to urinate in the problem area. The next step is to find the origin of the behavior and solve the problem at the source.
With pets, pee happens, often happens on carpets. But there’s no need to panic. There are several methods of removing dog urine—and the distinctive odor it creates—from carpets without using chemicals that may be harmful to you or your pup.
Good information! After you have done all these things, spray the area with straight Listerine (or a knock-off). It will kill the odor, and dogs and cats don’t like the smell of the Listerine, so it will help prevent their returning to the scene of the crime. Voted up and useful! 🙂
Unfortunately this alone did not do it so I was very glad to find a site that said to sprinkle plain baking soda, a lot, then spray it with a solution of 1/4cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide & 1 tsp Dawn dish soap (multiply it larger areas), use a soft bristle brush to rub it it then leave it to dry well (a few hours). When it is completely dry vacuum it up. Depending how bad the stain/smell, you may need to do this a couple time… but it has worked!!!
I have found hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dishsoap to work so well that the cats don’t go back to the same place twice, or sniff at places they’ve peed after treatment: a cat’s nose is the gold standard for judging whether cat pee smell is gone or not. Getting it to smell clean to a human nose is only half the battle if you don’t want repeat toilet visits to your carpet or furniture.

Just tried this and it really works! It completely removed the smell on carpet that had been repeatedly peed on. We got a dog from animal friends and when I went back to teaching she’s been peeing in the corner area of my living room. It smelled like a kennel. All of the smell is gone!
There’s no need to rinse or blot the enzymatic cleaner, you simply let it do its work, dissolve and dry. The length of time required depends on what version of cleaner you buy. Some require 24 hours, while serious stains may take up to two weeks to completely dissolve the smell and stain. Sometimes the smell gets worse before it gets better, so don’t be discouraged. In the store, look for the version of carpet cleaner that’s formulated especially for pet urine removal and is available in liquid or powder formula.
We have 3 cats, 1 female, and 2 males. Chloé was spayed when she was little, Gunther was fixed when he was young as well, and Lucien was about 3, and had been juggled between multiple owners, was mostly an outdoor cat, then lived at a barn where my sister worked, until we have him a forever home.
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!
is there an alternative? I’m babysitting and the little girl peed on a brown couch and I’ve mixed the soap and water but I can still smell the pee.. there isn’t any baking soda, vinegar, or peroxide here at the house.
Remember that cat urine stains are a bit like icebergs: you only see a small sample of what is there. While you might see a relatively small stain on the surface of the carpet, there is much more that’s already sunk deep into the pad. Even hard surfaces are porous enough for the urine to soak deep into. Truly cleaning a cat urine stain requires a generous application of the cleaning solution, so be sure to completely drench an area several inches larger than what’s visibly soiled. After you’ve completely saturated the area, cover the dampened surface. You can use anything to cover the surface – foil, a pan, a turned-over basket, or a box. The idea is to prevent your cat from urinating on the spot while the the cleaner is working, while also ensuring that no one steps or sits on the wet spot.
