Eliminate Cat Urine Odor. See our suggestions to remove the smell of cat urine on all surfaces including fabrics, floors, carpets, furniture and outdoors.
I've read all about cat urine seeping through the hard woods because it is on the floor beneath the floor. However this recipe seems to have eliminated the smell 100% for now and it has stopped the pets from wanting to keep going outside the box. I have no idea what will happen in the future I just hope someone will try a more natural cleaner and have the same luck that I have. Thank you!
I've been dealing with cat urine for 5 years. I've tried EVERY product under the sun, especially the enzyme formulas, simple green, oxy clean, odo ban, pets and kids, zepp, rodex, nature's miracle...You name it, I have spent hundreds without success....professionally cleaned the carpets, bought a $500 steam cleaner and did it myself 5 billion times... I've tried vinegar...supposed to neutralize the ph. I've also tried this peroxide recipe. NOTHING has worked. I ripped out my carpet this past weekend and just threw away the couch. I found recommendation for "Urine Contamination Treatment" specifically designed for human/pet urine. It is sold at Jon-Don. When I went in, the manager directed me to Microban disinfectant that is used for smoke/fire damage, mold, mildew, fungus. To my surprise, one single spray down of the walls, baseboards and floor completely eliminated the odor. I had 2 corner areas where I needed to respray, but the smell is gone and I have my home back! Microban. It works. I will not mess with any other product now that I have found it. And it's only about $30 a gallon. Good luck.

Cat Urine Odor : Eliminating that cat pee smell. - Best Cat Art
Because cat urine contains proteins the smell is much stronger and requires cleaners that can break down and remove the protein. The presence of ammonia in the urine also contributes to the smell, and you should avoid using ammonia-based cleaners found in most over-the-counter products. If you don't care to buy the special cleaners equipped with enzymes to eliminate proteins, you can use a few household products to sufficiently remove cat urine odors.Once you've removed as much of the urine as possible, use an enzyme-based cleaner to break down the urine and remove the smell. Your cat may return to the area to eliminate again if trace smells remain. Using a wet vacuum to shampoo the area will help, but avoid using a steam cleaner, as heat may seal the smells into your rug. Once the area is dry, sprinkle with baking soda, allow to set for an hour, and then vacuum to further neutralize the odor.One of the most effective ways to eliminate a cat urine smell from your carpet is to remove as much of the urine as possible when it's wet. Using paper towels or clean rags, blot the spot until no urine is detected on the towels. Pour a small amount of clean water onto the soiled area and continue to blot until the towels are clear when removed from the carpet.Pet store companies have entire aisles devoted to stain and odor eliminators, and it is a big business. Desperate pet owners, not to mention apartment renters who want to get their security deposit back, spend huge amounts every year trying to get rid of stains and that musky, acrid smell of cat urine that fills a room and does not go away. Time, in fact, makes most cat pee smells worse.
