Question Cat Urine

I just starting using a liner in my cats litter box. For some reason the liner overlapped the box so my cat refused to go in there and decided the rug was her only option???

Does anyone know the best way to remove the smell of Cat Urine from carpets??? Any information would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Deana

We use 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water to clean up cat urine after it dries we will go back over it with either pine or Lysol.

I use vinegar as well, for the initial clean up... and then Woolite Pet Stain remover afterwards, it has worked for me so far with 7 cats, all of whom are rather picky pottiers.

maybe slightly but you'll still want to use stain remover but the smell should go

My groomer swears by white vinegar in the carpet in her front room of her shop.

You've got to go shopping!!

Many pet stores sell Nature's Miracle. It has a very low odor and it will clean the stain and the smell. You can check to see if the urine is completely gone by using a black light. The urine will glow in the presence of a black light. I have used their products and they seem to work very well. When I worked at a pet store a man came in and bought 5 gallons of it. At the counter he laughed and told me he doesn't even have any pets - his whole family had the flu and he has used this before.

Then you can use that same black light and put on some of your old glow-in-the-dark clothes and pretend to have a disco party!!

I've heard of that stuff, too, but haven't tried it. Thank goodness for tile floors!

The thoughts of having a black light just lying about the house - I don't know, just kind of struck me as funny!! Although I have a cabinet full of needles and syringes, catheters (IV type), lactated ringers, etc., etc.

When you do your rugs for cat urine with the vineger and water could anyone tell if you soak the rug.
