I adopted a cat last week and offered it the warmest and coziest place on earth. I give it attention and tons of love and in exchange for that, Choco pees on my couch! Well, I know that there’s a small “peeing process” until the cat will get comfortable around its new home and I try not to get mad.
However, removing cat pee smell from your couch cushions or carpet is no easy task, but using the right cleaning options (better said enzyme cleaners) will ease your job and get rid of that pungent cat urine smell lingering your home.
How I managed to get rid of cat pee smell from couch
Fist step is to soak the stain with enzymes
When dealing with stains caused by cat feces or urine, one of the best bets to get rid of them is to use an enzymatic cleaner, and Nature’s Miracle worked perfectly for me.
Soak the stain thoroughly with the enzymatic cleaner to get down into the cat urine in the couch cushions that has soaked into the stuffing. Allow the solution to sit overnight or until dry. Most of these types of cleaners don’t need to be rinsed, so simply allowing the solution to dry is all you need to do. If necessary, re-treat the area, as required, to completely remove the stain and smell of the cat pee.
Next move is to make a vinegar cat urine cleaner
Vinegar is known for its odor-combating properties, which extend to cat pee. It also helps kill the bacteria in the urine that causes unpleasant odors.
So, prepare a cat urine cleaner based on vinegar as it follows:
- 1 part vinegar
- 3 parts warm water
Mix the two ingredients and pour the solution over the stain. Let it sit for 10 minutes before blotting up with paper towels. Repeat the process until the stain disappears.
The last step to follow is to apply some natural deodorizer as baking soda:
Sprinkle some baking soda over the couch where your cat did the nasty thing, and let it absorb any remaining odor. However, you can mix it with vinegar to prepare a paste, cover the pee stain with it, let it dry and then vacuum it.
