3 Tips on How to Remove Cat Urine Smell Fast By Julie Hayward How to remove cat urine smell is one many feline owners ask. The odor of cat urine is probably one of the most unpleasant smells a cat owner will ever encounter. Since cats have a more protein rich diet than most other pets, their urine has a pungent odor that can be difficult to counteract. There are numerous cat odor removal products sold by stores, and most of them are extremely expensive. Unfortunately, these products usually only temporarily remove the odor of cat wee making the problem worse since during the time a cat owner things the problem is gone bacteria has a chance to spread. If you are a cat owner, there are three easy ways to remove cat urine smell from your home before it becomes a major problem. Baking Soda Have you ever wondered why people always place baking soda in their refrigerators and freezers? Baking soda is a natural odor neutralizer that attracts, and eliminates, strong smells. Baking soda can be used on cat pee stains to help reduce the strong odor. Thoroughly apply baking soda to the affected area after it has been blotted dry and washed with fresh water. Rub the baking soda into the area being treated as deeply as possible for best results. Let the baking soda dry, and vacuum excess powder or residue to complete the process. Though baking soda cannot achieve the deep clean most people want, it is a great way to initially neutralize odors while you prepare yourself for more extensive cleaning. Ok on to the second tip on how to remove cat urine smell... Vinegar For years pet owners have used vinegar and water to eliminate pet odors on carpets. Though vinegar and water is effective, when dealing with cat wee undiluted vinegar is a better option. Use white or apple vinegar to completely saturate the affected area to eliminate odors that have seeped into the carpet or floor boards. Vinegar is safe to use on a variety of surfaces including hardwood floor. The strong smell of the vinegar should dissipate in no more than an hour, taking the strong cat urine smell with it. Hydrogen Peroxide Though some cat owners would rather clean stains with bleach, if you are trying to safe an area from losing color use hydrogen peroxide to kill remaining odors being caused by bacterial growth. Test a small area by pouring undiluted hydrogen peroxide on it. Wait two hours to see if any bleaching occurs before treating the rest of the affected area. Thoroughly soaking an area that a cat urinated on with hydrogen peroxide will kill the bacteria that cause pet stains to begin smelling again after a couple of days. Repeat the Process I hope these 3 tips on how to remove cat urine smell are useful and also don't be afraid the repeat the process once or twice to ensure results. While a thoroughly cleaning should be enough to completely eliminate the smell of cat pee, anyone who has several cats or who has one cat that has urinated in the same spot repeatedly, may benefit from repeat treatments. Once the area has been cleaned several times, use one final spray of vinegar to further repel the cat from the area to avoid another accident. Cleaning cat urine is not a fun process, but it does not have to be difficult.
