All cat owners know how difficult is to remove cat pee impregnated in carpets, floors or sofas. But, we also know that cat urine penetrates the fabric quickly leaving an awful and unpleasant smell behind, that’s why you have to act immediately to remove this “little mess”.
But, don’t panic if you haven’t seen your cat peeing on the carpet, because there are some “natural rescue measures” you can apply to remove this smelly issue.
To remove cat urine “as it’s fresh”, you will need a soft and clean cloth or some paper towels to put it quickly over the stain, and let them absorb the urine. Don’t rub for 30 seconds, and then pour some cold water over the stain and rub thoroughly with a clean cloth.
To remove old cat urine stains you have to follow the next natural instructions:
1. Baking soda is very effective in removing odors and surface stains (which are not impregnated). Moisten the stain with some water and sprinkle baking soda over it. Rub well until it is absorbed and let the stain dry. At the end, just vacuum the area.
2. Another option (but I like to call it second step) is white vinegar. Mix 85 g of warm water with 170 g of white vinegar and pour this liquid over the stain. Put over the stain a dry towel with a book on it, and then leave it a few hours to dry.
I assure you that your cat won’t pee on the same place again, because of the pungent smell of vinegar.
