    How to Remove Cat Urine | Kitten Ads

    Articlegeneral cat adviceThursday 07 April 2011
    Cat urine can be quite hard to get out. Every now and then your cat may not use his litter tray, and you might find cat pee around the house. Once cat pee gets onto fabrics around the house you will need to remove the cat urine smell. For advice on getting cat urine off fabrics, read the following tips.

    Detecting Cat Urine Spots

    To find exactly where the cat pee is, buy a black light online, or from a pet shop. When you shine the light it will highlight the cat urine patches in a bright blue-white light.

    Vinegar and Water

    The first port of call for getting rid of cat urine is nice and simple. Mix half part water and half part vinegar in a spray bottle. Shake it up. Spray this solution onto the patches and leave to dry. If the spot is really quite big, it may be worth scrubbing with soap water before applying the vinegar solution

    Enzyme Cleaner

    Another way of getting cat urine off is by using an enzyme cleaning product. These attack the cat urine smell by breaking down bacteria. After a few hours the cat urine smell should be reduced considerably. Before you use this, it is worth scrubbing with regular soapy water first. Use this on carpets but not on beds, as chemical smells will linger for a few days.

    Organic Cleaner

    There is now quite a range of organic cat pee cleaners available. These will be made with natural ingredients that do not harm cats or humans.

    Professional Help

    If none of these methods are successful in getting rid of cat urine, it may be time to call in professional help. This will obviously be the most expensive option, but will more or less guarantee the removal of cat urine and the cat urine smell left behind.
