What is the best way to get cat urine smell out of carpets?
Don’t worry there is an easy way to get rid of the smell. First off if you see a fresh stain sop up what you can. Second use Urine Gone on the stain. You can buy it at Wallgreens or Target and it is a life saver! It gets rid of the smell and the yellow stain. However if you have white carpet it can leave a little gray spot, but it comes out easily when you clean your floors and it is a lot better than having a yellow, smelly spot.
Well, I have bought the powdery version of OXI clean at Sam’s club. It also comes in the water bottle type. This will not only help stains, but it will also help the smell go away. It’s very useful.

To remove the smell of urine from just about anything, first clean it with some sort of soap or kitchen cleaner. Then clean it with lemon juice. If you don’t like the smell of lemon juice follow it up with a little bit of vanilla extract. One of the most effective formulas I’ve found for removing ANY odor was from Popular Science Magazine. Mix 1 quart of Hydrogen Peroxide, with 1/4 cup of Baking Soda, and one tablespoon of liquid dishwashing soap. Saturate the affected area, rinse thoroughly with clean water, and the smell is gone. This is non-toxic and safe for your animals and children, and those with allergies. This is especially helpful for removing skunk odor from your outdoor a
If it is specific spots they are hitting, try a product called Urine-off that is available from vets and on-line. It works better than Nature’s Miracle, vinegar and any of the home remedies I’ve ever tried. It got me through a cat with kidney failure and housebreaking two puppies. Great stuff. Link below. If the urine is widespread through the carpet, I suggest having it professionally cleaned and if that doesn’t cut it, you may need to have the carpet and pad replaced. Sometimes it soaks into the floor which requires bleaching the floor or painting it to remove it completely. Cat pee over a wide area is a tough problem to solve.
