TESTIMONIALS from our readers who have tried our free recipe to remove cat urine and dog urine smells


I was in tears when I found my daughters cat had peed on my brand new mattress. I followed this to the letter and once again was in tears when I found it worked. I have only had them for a month! I pray I will not have to use it again but this was a life saver. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

San Antonio, Texas, USA

Wow, its amazing! Thanks! Saved my bed and couches. I have shared this recipe with others as well. Cheers!

BC Canada

This is the forth time I had to use this recipe over the years and once was on a mattress. I have this recipe saved on my computer as my go to if there is ever a need for it. Out of everything I have ever tried this is sure bet and really does work!

Delaware, USA

Worked purrrrfectly...Thank you. My Cat is old and his kidneys are slowing down.. Very sad. This Recipe worked so well I can give our poor kitty a little more time with us...

Florida, USA

I never write testimonials but this truly deserves it. Last attempt before consigning the nearly new pillow topped mattress to the bin. Worked really really well, so pleased, can't thank you enough. I had 2 dinner plate sized cat pee stains to remove that had soaked in and been treated with a commercial enzyme urine remover ( smelt terrible and didn't work). I used 100ml white vinegar and 100ml water mixed on each stain, then 1/4 cup peroxide mixed 1tsp washing up liquid on each stain, and a whole box 250g of bicarbonate of soda between the 2 stains. Mattress is super clean now and no pee odour! Topped it off this morning now it's dry with a very light spray of fabreeze (didn't need this but I like the clean linen smell). Brilliant recipe thank you so much for sharing!

Hereford, UK

2 days ago my kitty peed on our shagpile rug. I tried your recipe and WOW it worked In removing the smell. She won't even walk on it now lol. Brilliant thanks

Melbourne, Australia

Most people have these ingredients in their house but i was missing the baking soda. I gave it the old college try even not having everything. I was more than satisfied with the results. Not only is the mattress super bright white there is no more odor. Thank you for the insight.

Mandy USA


I love my cat soooo much she has been in our family for 11 years -but once she couldn’t get to her litter tray and so decided that she would pee in a corner of the house on our carpet. She did this twice - Now I love her but OH MY GOD the stench!!!! I tried your recipe I used Vanish Preen because i didn’t have peroxide and I could not wait til the morning to go to the shops to get some. I followed your step by step instructions doubting it all the way.

Well I left the bi carb with the drizzled dishwashing liquid and Oxi stain remover solution on the infected area then went to change my songs sheets and pillowcases (NO THE CAT DID NOT WEE ON THE BED - just regular house cleaning - LOL) then I came downstairs and to my disbelief the stench had gone - i put my nose close to the ground and could not smell anything I’m going to leave it there until the morning or until in completely dries then vacuum. So I haven’t finished the process completely but MY GOSH it certainly is working as I CANNOT SMELL that stench anymore!!!!!!

Thanks sooooooo soooooo MUCH!!!

I actually was researching carpet companies to order some quotes to replace the carpet the smell WAS so bad - just saved myself $5 grand WOO HOO!!!

Kind Regards,

This is a life saver!!! It really does work. I have six cats and keeping my carpet nice is a priority to me, you can imagine my dismay when one of them started using the carpet as a litter box. I googled remedies for getting cat urine out of carpet and yours was the first link that came up. The stain that I had was pretty bad so I had to do it twice, but it definitely worked now I'm going to buy a black light and hit every spot of carpet in my house thank you so so much.


I tried everything in the supermarket aisles and could NEVER remove the underlying stench of wee - on a humid day our house would reek.

This recipe actually worked; now the house doesn't smell and our carpets smell like carpet.
I am so pleased, thank you!

Melbourne, Australia

It works!!!! The smell is gone. I was getting ready to call a cleaning company when I saw this post. So glad I did. Saved me a lot of money. I had everything to get job done.

Thanks for sharing.

Texas  USA

Our kitty peed a huge puddle on our brand new mattress. Searched for a solution and decided to try this based on the reviews. I can vouch for it all and say this worked perfectly! Thanks so much!

Washington State

This regimen is amazing for removing cat urine stains and odor from carpeting. We have tried numerous things in the past 10 months with no total success until this regimen. Truly AMAZING!!! Saved us from having to replace the wall-to-wall carpeting.

Mary M Mc

Well I was at my wits end when arriving back from holiday to an eye watering 'stink'! My elderly 'baby' had previously used a corner as a litter tray and I'd used many different and expensive products including carpet cleaners but they never worked. On returning home she had again used the corner in a new area. The smell was acrid , honestly. At wits end turned to this site and used the wonder recipe. After using step one with vinegar left overnight to dry and was worse than ever. But applied the bicarb and peroxide today and it was like magic....gone! People had been to the house too and I was ashamed as the whole house reeked, but no more!!, Thank You x 1000 times. No more scepticism ! Can now sit in the lounge again!!

Lancashire, UK

I don't know about the chemistry behind it...but this method works. I had no faith that my mattress was salvageable but after following these steps, it is odor free and almost completely stain free. This method totally saved my mattress. To the skeptics out there - if your mattress is like mine it'll take about 24 hours to dry completely but it's absolutely worth the wait!

Claire T

YOU ARE AWESOME!!! I can not thank you enough! The cat urine smell that had been haunting me for a month now, has disappeared like magic! I can now enjoy my babies again. Thank You So Very Much again for sharing your recipe for free! This was the best free thing that Anyone has shared! All I can say is this. Is just as awesome as you are for sharing! Thank you thank you thank you!!

D. Dunlap

After my daughter brought her cat into my home for a month while I was out of town, I returned home to a disaster. My sense of smell is very acute, and I was horrified! I immediately went to my local pet store and bought a gallon of a professional product made specifically to remove cat urine odor from carpet.

I did some research into such products and saw good reviews, but the first brand didn't work. Went and bought another brand...also didn't work. Ordered something from the internet. No luck. I followed instructions to the letter. All three offered money back guarantees. All three made the refund process very difficult, and as yet I have not received refunds from any of them -three months now, and nearly $120.00 total.

I had tried the vinegar and water solution alone with no luck, so out of pure desperation I tried this recipe. Two days later, I could still smell the urine, and I was a bit disappointed. Also, my carpet was hard, crusty, and white from the baking soda. So when the carpet was dry, I used my home carpet cleaner to spray clean water and extract the baking soda. To my delight, that removed MOST of the odor!

Apparently said cat was VERY active in a certain area, so as one user suggested, I will give it another shot in that spot. My advice to anyone reading this is to TRY THIS FIRST! Baking soda, vinegar, peroxide, and dish detergent.....all very affordable, and definitely worth a try! At this point, I do NOT smell the cat urine as strongly as I did previously when the carpet became wet again, so I am VERY hopeful that the odor will be completely gone after another application in the worst areas. Thank God. There isn't too much worse than the smell of cat pee!

I will report back in a few days when I do this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe, and also all of the reviews as well. Seeing how there is no money to be made by those posting this solution, or those commenting on it's success, it SHOULD HAVE BEEN my first choice!!

River A

I have four cats, 2 male, 2 female, and had a problem with one of the girls going next to the box and then the male would go over hers, came across this recipe and decided to try it as I have limited funds! The odor was really strong and am waiting for the final step to dry but have noticed a BIG difference in the smell, if I get my nose right down to the carpet I can still smell a trace of the odor but not half as bad! I will let dry completely and vacuum, and if necessary will retreat again tomorrow! It's about a 1X3 foot area. Will repost later on the outcome, but so far it's 10 times better than it was this morning!! I even tried that SCOE 10X stuff! This recipe works way better than that expensive stuff!!! Thanks!

After reading all the comments about how satisfied everyone has been from all over the the world
I figured I had to try it.
When any one would come into my home, I was very embarrassed because I knew if I smell the cat pee in my carpet then they would also smell it.
After trying the solution just once.., OMG.. poof gone! Amazing!! I will reapply on my carpet again with in the next few days just to make sure my older cat is not going any where else.

Thank You So Much,
Riverbank, California

I found your site. It appeared to me that my $2000 bed was gone...

Then, I followed your instructions EXACTLY....

It worked...

Thank you so much....

Wow. This is amazing. Like most, I rarely write reviews. I had gone over my carpet more than once with the steam cleaner, and the odor was still there. After applying the baking soda, it was evident that there was still some left that the steam cleaner didn't pick up! Thanks so much for posting this. It made a huge difference!

BC, Canada

I'm in the UK near Cambridge and stumbled across your recipe through a Google search.

The 'lovely' Teddy has been peeing randomly around the house for a while now, I think, in protest to my foster cats.

I have used various expensive products to try to eradicate the foul stench but none have worked very well.

I don't know who came up with this simple and cheap recipe but it is fantastic! !:-) My house no longer smells like a public house gentleman's toilet in the small hours of a hot Sunday morning.

Thank you so much. Will be sharing with my fellow fosterers

Heather xx

Hi! My name is Greg, and I live in Missouri, in the USA.

I came across your page after trying Nature's Miracle to remove the smell of cat urine and feces from our mattress. That product worked okay, but I could still smell it. I tried the technique outlined here, and now the smell is gone completely. Thank you so, so much.

One small note: in part because we live in a humid area, and in part because we applied this technique to the entire mattress-top, our mattress took a few days to dry. We allowed for the drying-time by flipping it over during the night and sleeping on the "wrong" side, then flipping back to the right side during the day with a fan pointed at it.

Thanks again!

This homemade solution works wonders. Even with expensive cleaners made to get rid of cat urine odor will leave traces behind. I'll keep this recipe on hand because I have 2 older cats who don't always make the trip to the litter box.


I don’t know what sort of voodoo it is that you practice, but there is no way that something so cheap and easy should be this effective. The steps went by quickly and I by the time I was wrist deep in baking soda, dish soap and peroxide, I was noticing a distinct lack of cat odour. And it wasn’t just masking it. What surprised me the most was how fast this worked - and dried!! I fully expected to be sleeping on the sofa (which means there would be four animals joining me in those cramped quarters), but the bed was dry, vacuumed and remade within five hours. And all with products that I had on hand. And for reference, this was not a small pee. My cat, feeling vindictive and cantankerous in his old age, unleashed a monstrous pee on the lower half of my bed that, ultimately, left an almost 3 foot squared stain. I tried many other tricks to no avail. This removed a well set in stain and odour like magic. I like your voodoo!!

Ontario, Canada

This really does work!! I've wasted a lot of money on enzyme products just to have the odor return. I really can't thank you enough for sharing your recipe. I don't have to replace my carpeting after all, which was the last alternative. Not only did I save the carpeting, but I didn't have to move all the furniture out and remove the ruined carpeting, It is a guest room and is not worn at all. Now it is just like new again.

Nancy W. Idabel, OK

Just wanted to say thank you :D
I tried out your method today and it worked! I like many others had tried a bunch of products and It never got rid of the smell, just masked it for a few days.

Although a little time consuming (as I had to do 60% of my lounge room thanks to my naughty cat) it was definitely worth the effort!

Brisbane, Australia

Awesome... My cat decided to leave me a welcome home present! I googled immediately and found you.. You are a life saver and I will tell everyone about your awesomeness...


Wow you rock! Best cat pee on mattress advice - I only had got up to step 3 and it was all clean and lovely! Thank you so much for great practical steps that totally work.

Kind regards
Jude, Wellington New Zealand

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Just yesterday I left my cat, Jerry in while I was at work due to cold weather. Well Jerry got angry at me for it and peed a HUGE puddle on my bed... (had his bm in the litter box, however) Anyway, I was in tears and googled to find out how to get rid of it....your article first on the search!! IT DOES WORK! I have bookmarked your website, now....Again, I thank you! Blessings~


Our female Bengal cat was very stressed by our addition of a Frenchie puppy and began peeing on our favorite brown sofa and a new $2000 dark grey sleeper/sofa. I had tried some pet cleaners that worked for about 2 days. We had cold weather recently and the house was closed up. I was appalled by the smell when I came in from work!! I Googled de-stink and found this. Had everything on hand and applied as directed. The paste isn't completely dry yet, but I vacumed a small area and found nothing faded! Yay!! The smell is gone so far. To discourage a repeat, I purchased 2 shower curtain liners and will put them over the cushions, under the sofa pet protectors. Worst case scenario, I only have to wash the sofa covers. I do that anyway, so... Just wanted to say thanks. I couldn't face this winter with this smell in the house. GENIUS!!

Karen, Allentown, Pa. USA

It works perfectly. Saved my mattress and my sanity. Thank you so much.


Wow!!! You should put something together, bottle it and sell it. Stuff works amazing! Thanks!


Thank You!  This Works...have an elderly cat who started using the hall as a litter box.  Tried a couple of over the counter solution I found at the pet store, didn't work. Found this recipe and cleaned  can't smell a thing. Even my daughter said she couldn't smell the cat urine when she walked in the door. Again, Thank You !!!!!!


Thank you so much for posting this recipe for removing cat wee from a mattress. My cat was looked after at home whilst we went on holiday and did three huge wees on our guest bed. I steam cleaned and whilst the stains went the smell didn't. I used your remedy and it worked perfectly; I am lying on the bed with my cat as I type! Thank you.

Louise- Devon, England

I want to thank you for the information on how to remove cat urine from carpet! Something got into my cat and he decided to start using my dining room as his bathroom! :(

I tried spot cleaner. Did not even put a dent in the foul odor! I SHAMPOOED my carpets!! Made a slight dent but the whole house still stunk!

I came across your site and your recipe and instructions. THANK YOU! I am blown away!! There is not an ounce of odor left anywhere! I can't thank you enough! I was so worried I would have to bring out professional cleaners or live with the smell. Your instructions were clear and precise and most of all, IT WORKED!!!

I don't normally do this, but I am so overwhelmed and grateful, I had to share my wonderful experience! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Sheri,  Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

I have to admit I was hesitant and the process seemed like it might take forever to accomplish. I am an instant gratification kind of gal! But wow was this simple (a little time consuming) and straight forward and YES it worked like a charm! One mattress, my least peed on bed, down one to go! It may be an all day chore for the other bed but since it cost me nearly $1000 I will give it a try! Thanks for this amazing fix to a very bad problem!

Sadie from UT

My son stayed with me for a couple months with his two dogs. My two cats started marking their territory on the carpet in front of my son's bedroom door and in the spare room where I moved their litter box. They were not happy. I tried this recipe yesterday in the spare room (very skeptical), but there is no more smell. I used the recipe this morning on the area in front of the bedroom door. Funny thing, both cats seem confused this morning and keep coming up to me meowing. They do use the litterbox, but I think they still urinate on the infected areas because of the odor. I pray this will be the end of it, but at least I now have a way of getting rid of the odor. I never had this problem until the dogs were there. Thank you for posting this recipe on the internet.

Thank you for your recipe for the cat urine removal, I had most of these items in the house already and I was very happy when the mixture dried on my futon to find that there was no smell. I don't trust my cat enough to not go on it again, so I have piled things on top of my futon to deter her, but I am thankful that it does not smell in that room anymore. Thank you again!

-Gillian from Canada

I have to write and say thank you!! THANK YOU!! I can not believe this simple recipe worked so perfectly. The cat urinated on the carpet and we tried everything, and I mean everything, for over a month. There was a huge stain and the entire house reeked.

You simple recipe worked so easily I honestly was in shock. I kept expecting the stain to come back days later, but it went away and stayed away.

Super grateful in Washington DC :-)

Wow, I am truly impressed. All traces of cat urine smell have been removed...replaced with a sweet, fresh smell. The 12 inch diameter urine stain was about a week old (smelled very rank) and I followed the directions as given. I have a degree in chemistry and have used other commercial preparations with disappointing results. This really works! Thank you so much.

Deb Fild, Michigan, USA

Just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for the information on removing cat pee from a bed!
Seriously so happy it came out! Thank you!!!!

From never knowing we'd be able to remove it to being able to see it disappear before our eyes is amazing! The pee stain on the bed was 22 inches in diameter! So thank you again!

Yaz, Florida USA

I have an elderly cat who for no apparent reason decided to use a corner of our living room as a litter tray!! I tried countless things to:

1. Get rid of the smell.

2. To prevent him from doing it again.

This worked on both thank you !!!!

Amy, Devon, United Kingdom 

So I did a google search on "natural ways to get rid of cat urine in carpets", and this was this first site I found.

My cats have been traumatized with my brother's dogs here for the holidays and started to urinate in my bedroom.

I had tried a few other things but I couldn't sleep with the chemical smell mix with the urine smell. 

This recipe works wonders (I used dawn dish soap with it)

Thank you thank you! I feel I can breath again!

Carla, Illinois, USA

Our elderly burmilla had lost the plot. Walls, floors and drapes were all sprayed or peed on, not to mention all solid furniture, bags, books and the computer. Yes, he had cost us many thousands over 14 years with a urinary tract problem but we loved him.

Last week was too much, he was so unwell and made his final trip to the vet. We have always dealt with what we found as soon as we found it but the last 12 months has been from hell. The carpet has been constantly cleaned, shampooed, nil odour sprayed, deodorized and professionally cleaned only 5 days ago. The next day the smell was back and it was still sickening! We had to have our carpet replaced 4 years ago when a full tom got caught inside overnight – we did not relish another insurance claim. So your recipe was up for trial.

My doubts were that the peroxide would fade the carpet and as it is charcoal and flecked, it would be obvious. This morning, after thorough vacuuming and brushing, IT IS WONDERFUL!!! Yes there is a slight smell of the special solution used by the pro cleaner but that will fade. SO…have courage, just go do it – you will LOVE the result. Best Internet find in years!

This recipe is fantastic. I didn't think it would actually work...BUT IT DID !!!!!!!!! I am in the UK and used Vanish liquid , white vinegar, Bicarbonate of soda and fairy liquid. My old cat had peeded on the bedroom carpet and i had tried scrubbing it with disinfectant but it dried smelling much worse. I looked on the internet for help and hey presto....superb. I am very very happy THANKYOU .

Gaynor Hincks
Coventry, United Kingdom 

Its 3AM and I had been kept awake by the smell of cat pee in my walk in robe...I had used your recipe before on my leather sofa and it was brilliant but why wasn't it working on my carpet this time? I was puzzled and determined to find the answer...eventually "nose to the ground" I found it, another dried up puddle of pee beside the big puddle I had been treating all wonder I still had a walk in robe smelling of cat I got the gear out again and treated the other spot and voila, the odour is fading right as I work to treat it. fantastic!

Finally now I can go to sleep and feel confident the odour will have vanished by sunrise...I was dreading what was to come next if this wasn't going to work.

thankyou a million times...I have already passed this on to a friend of mine who has a kitty that also peed in an inappropriate place and we will continue to spread the word...

Tonia, Australia.

I had a 16yr old male cat that started urinating on the carpet in the corner of my living room. The smell was pretty bad and I was at my wits end on a solution to get rid of the odor. I tried this recipe the web site recommends and hands down it WORKED... !

Scott L

I cannot believe how simple, yet effective this is! Its as easy as 1,2,3 and within hours the smell is gone. I tried EVERYTHING, and this is the only thing that actually works. Not to mention is mostly products you have lying around the house! I cannot thank you enough for this. Another plus is that it cleaned the urine so well that my kitty stopped urinating in his “spot” and went back to the litter. You’re a lifesaver!!

Stephanie T Coventry, RI USA


I am not one who normally posts comments, good or bad, about a product, process, etc. But I do feel compelled to add my testimonial for your process for removing cat urine odors and stains -- it just simply works.

We came home from vacation last night to find that one of our kitties peed right in the middle of the pillow top bed -- peed a lot! I found your article and thought I might as well try it -- I was a bit skeptical, but what did I have to lose, right?

I put it to work this morning and -- voila -- no odors and my mattress is again snow white! Thank you!!

Caroline M. Beaver, PA, USA

WOW!!!!!!Thank you so much! Not to be repetitive but this is the only treatment that I have ever used that has worked! Someone peed on our new mattress while we were on vacation and it had completely dried by the time we got home. Of course the enzyme cleaners did not work but this did! I had all the ingredients, followed the directions and used a small heater to dry. In less than a day the odor was completely gone. I cannot thank you enough for saving us $1500.00 for a new mattress.

Katie J. Thousand Oaks, Ca.

It works, It works, It works !!!  If you're skeptical, Well try it.  What have you got to lose. I'll tell you what you lose!!!  You lose the smell of cat urine!!!    Thank You to whoever discovered this!!?

Gillian, UK.

I would like to thank you for posting the steps to remove cat urine from a mattress. My partner thought we would have to throw this mattress out but after finding your site and following the steps (twice) we have been able to save the mattress. Many thanks!! The beauty of this was that we already had all the ingredients at home.

Thanks again!!
Cynthia, Australia

Excellent!!!!!!!  Thanks so much.  I still can't believe the results.

misseylin,  Ohio

This also works like a charm for doggy diarrhea too. My Rottweiler was very ill and had a huge mess on my white carpet! I was skeptical but had tried everything else that was OTC.  It was not a quick process but I was dealing with a large area. By the time I was done the stain was literally gone as well as the smell!! I do want to add that this poop mess had soaked in for several hours before I tried this. What can I say? I'm a very sound sleeper. It was the smell that actually woke me up!  This is my go to stain and smell remover from now on.

Tina. Wisconsin, United States

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have a problem with my cat that she pees on my bed a lot. I have a cover I wash but in between washes sometimes she gets my actual mattress. Although I plan on getting a new one once I figure out what to do with this cat and her problem this solution has saved me from sleeping on a bed smelling of the god awful stench of cat pee. I have done this remedy about four times and it always works.

Nikita, Concord, CA

OMGosh a huge THANK YOU!!!

My cat came into my room and sat right next to me and peed on my pant leg and bed, then went upstairs and pooped on the floor. This is the first time she has ever done something like this and your remedy definitely kept me from killing her. I don't know how you figured this remedy out but THANK YOU!!!!! :D

My older female cat stresses and pees on my bed.
This completely worked getting the odor & stain out of my mattress. Thanks!

cherylsacat Spring, Texas, USA

It really works on dried urine discovered after moving furniture and wondering where smell was coming from. Our 21year old cat,who has since passed away, had been in a corner of the lounge behind sofa. It also works on other stains .

New Zealand

Never wrote feedback online for anything, but I needed something fast, easy and at hand, Due to my 8 month old daughter just crawling everywhere. I dye my hair so had the 3% hydrogen peroxide developer at hand, it was so easy. The smell is gone and it was easy peasy. Thank you so much, I'll pass on the wisdom x


I was really skeptical.  My cat relieved herself twice on my mattress.  I closed my bedroom door but the smell seeped out from under the door.  I bought the stuff and - IT WORKED!  You can't tell a cat was ever in that room!
Thank you!!!  This just saved me hundreds of dollars for what I thought would be a new mattress.


After reading this remedy for cat urine on the mattress, I read no farther. The soda and peroxide mixture is still drying under a fan, but it's already apparent that the smell is gone as is the yellow stain. And I didn't even have to go to the store to buy the ingredients. Thank you so much.

Texas, U.S.A.

One word...WOW!!!! It worked like a charm, thanks a million!!


We just bought a new mattress, and my boy cat Loki decided to take a whizz on it and looked at this nifty home remedy to take out the smell and much to my surprise IT WORKED! Thank you so much for this, you have saved my mattress and my cat.


You are Awesome……… THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!

My cat got locked in my office accidently overnight and I have spent 3 days cleaning and deodorising with all sorts of products to clean and remove the urine smell from the carpet.

Yesterday I was at the end of my tether and could not sit in my office any longer due to the overpowering and awful smell emanating from under my desk.

As a last resort I went to Google search and found your recipe.
IT WORKED! I can now sit in my office and it smells fresh and clean again.

Without trying to sound too dire, your "Cat Urine Removal from a Mattress" article may be the only reason I haven't killed my cat already. I only have one, but she's a dumb'un, and I've been trying to cope with her newfound propensity to occasionally empty her bladder right in the middle of my down comforter. The first time I didn't discover it until it had soaked through all of my sheets and into my mattress and dried. The pet-odor sprays weren't helping, and the first night I had to sleep on an awful stinking mattress, and I really truly feared that I wouldn't be able to keep her.

I might mention that down comforters don't "fluff up" very well after being exposed to liquid laundry soap, so I wash it in cold water and a few ounces of white vinegar which completely removes the smell. The rest of the bedding (sheets, comforter cover, etc) gets washed with normal detergent and white vinegar.

While I haven't quite gotten to the root of her problem yet, at least I have a fairly quick "system" for thoroughly and completely removing stink of cat urine, with which I absolutely cannot live, and now when it happens I no longer feel like I might have to squeeze her dumb little head off.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, I cannot begin to thank you enough.

O.M.G thank you so much. I have 4 cats. My boys are great with their litter box but my girls think my leather sofas are where they go to the toilet. I'm forever cleaning them. After cleaning them I think the smell has gone but later I smell it again. I looked up this recipe and went straight down to the shop to buy the ingredients. I tried it and to my surprise (wow) the smell has gone, it really has gone. It's brilliant and I cant thank you enough I am so impressed. I never write on these things because they never work. Didn't think this would. But YES!!! It does. I couldn't be happier. :-) just how did you come across this? You could make serious money with this. Saved as a bookmark. Thank you again

Thank you so much for posting this very useful information. My male cat urinated on our bed (on my husbands side!) , soaking thru the duvet cover, the down comforter, the sheets, the mattress pad, & into the mattress, soaking it!!! We thought we would have to purchase a new mattress, (boy was my husband upset…) I found your information online & it really does work!! It is actually very easy to do & there is no smell left. It took 2 days to dry & we slept on couches for those 2 days, but it is so worth it to know that we don't have to put out the huge amount of $$ for a new mattress. This remedy cost virtually nothing, as I had all those ingredients in my house. You are a lifesaver, both for the cat & the mattress!
Thanks again

Phoenix, AZ

Tried this last night after discovering "the smell" on my couch yesterday. It works! Thank you so much! My only regret is I did not find this sooner, as the commercial stain/smell removers have bleached out the side of the couch where I tried to remove urine before. From now on I will be using this recipe... No smell, no stain, no bleach out. Thanks again!


Thank you so much! Neighbour's cat got in - took it right away. Genius!


You saved my brand new pillow top mattress!!! It even took out the stain ... I am so grateful ! Thank you .


Thanks so much! We have three older cats who are usually total litter box champs...but last night someone had an accident in the hall. I found it right away and applied your remedy promptly. That spot is now spic and span! I will keep this recipe on hand just in case of emergency. I love that it's made entirely out of household items that nearly everyone would have on hand, or could purchase for cheap.
My carpet thanks you too.

Ok - After trying 3 different bottles of odor remover - I tried this tonight - Yes it REALLY works! It completely neutralized the odor - completely!!!! I can't believe it!!
Pull up some test fibers an do a test first as suggested.

Thank you thank you thank you!!! I am the owner of two male kittens that i thought had basically destroyed an expensive pillow top bed and a custom sofa. I had lost hope until trying this and it really worked. I am grateful that i did not have to spend a ton of money buying something questionable and I was able to address it on my time frames. You're amazing...

I added a new kitten to my household & my older cat showed her anger by peeing on the carpet repeatedly. I tried to get it up but to no avail. Then I came across your article and I just tried it on a small area. IT WORKED!!! I am going to rent a large machine and do the entire carpet now that I know IT WORKS! Thank you so much!

I was VERY disappointed in my big male cat who decided to urinate on my boyfriend's brand new futon, which is his Christmas present this year! Being upset I considered just cutting my losses and shelling out the money for a new one. I decided to conduct some research online before spending the money - and this recipe works!!! Honest! The stained area was fairly large (about a six foot square) and I was skeptical but I followed the recipe, walked all over the area and once dried, it smells great!! No more urine smell!! Thank you for this valuable information and I'm going to recommend it!!

Thank you!!

Nicole, CA

It works. Period. Thank you so much for this.

Karen Cormack

We were renting a furnished apartment and our cat peed on the mattress and it was a couple of days before I determined where the smell was coming from. So it was well dried.
I follow the directions to the letter. The mattress came out beautifully there was no stain , no smell. In fact I had a harder time getting the stain out of the sheet.


THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I recently adopted a new kitten, she's very cute but my other two adult cats are not so fond of her. My female adult cat is very skittish and nervous. We went away for vacation and my friend and her two boys cared for the cats while we were gone. They didn't stay over, just came to play with the
kitten so she could get some play time.

Well - when we got home, my entire house smelled of cat urine! My son's bed, my daughter's recently cleaned laundry (piled on the floor) and my comforter.

I'm doing sniff tests everywhere. I followed your directions completely and it's fabulous!

Again, thanks for sharing!!

Russ Rubino

Hi, I am from England - I was spending so much money each week on cleaning materials and sprays trying to get rid of the smell – so I decided to try the internet.

So glad I did. What a difference - the smell has gone

Thank you so so much for your help
I have kept your site as one of my favorites

Take care

I can't thank you enough!!! Just moved to a new apartment that had obvious cat pee smell in our bedroom. It was THAT bad that I couldn't sleep and now this quick 3 steps and ITS GONE!! Amazing!!!

greetings from Amsterdam

Last time “I did” have to replace the carpet.

This time I followed the instructions to the “T” and in one day the problem was fixed.

How the heck did you figure this out?!?!

Thanks – NJ Phil

I too have bought and used the expensive enzyme cleaners, and other home remedies as well. Always the smell returned.

I actually had such a large area of wall to wall carpet soiled that I used a rug cleaning machine to put down the vinegar solution, and then used it for the peroxide solution as well.

For the peroxide solution, I was able to find a commercial rug cleaning solution with Oxy cleaners in it made by Bissell. After a few days of letting carpet dry, I vacuumed the baking soda and the house no longer smells, even after a couple weeks. Fantastic! I wish I had found this web site years ago before I spent all the money on commercial solutions which didn’t work!

Baldwin, MD

I was very skeptical because I didn't believe I would ever be totally rid of the obnoxious odor from our cat urinating on our new mattress.

I was hoping for the best but expecting the worst. I was quite surprised when it completely removed every trace of stain and odor. That was 6 months ago and still today no trace of odor. It truly truly works!! Thank you!!

Mindy Keheley

My old cat was being bullied by a new kitten, was trapped in my baby's room, and peed on the floor. I was sure we would have to pull up and replace the carpet. Luckily, we tried this first, and there is no trace there was ever cat pee in that room.

Wonderful! Thank you!

Billie Sabovitch

Read your handy tip this morning at 4.30am after my cat woke me up when he decided to use my new £1500 bed as a litter tray! It worked a treat! all clean and fresh again many thanks

Elaine Izzo

Hi OMG !!!

I have just used your cat pee cleaning/neutralizer recipe after finding that my cat had been peeing in the corner of our lounge room.

I am glad to report that this is wonderful stuff as I had just spent the whole weekend washing my carpet trying to get rid of the smell.

I do admit I was so cautious of bleaching my light coloured carpet that I only used the method thoroughly on the underlay and the carpet backing but it worked straight away... no smell.

I have been a cat owner all my life and have never came across any other product or solution that has worked at all let alone this well. It is fabulous.

Thanks Heaps
Cheers Tania

I cant thank you enough for your article on removing cats pee from a mattress.

THANK YOU so much,

This treatment actually WORKS, just follow instructions to the letter and your cats pee smell will evaporate. I ventilated the room for couple of days as well. Didn’t think it would work but it really really does !

Geri Henley

I have used many commercial treatments to get rid of cat urine smells. I have a male cat that sneaks into the house to 'mark' his territory, usually in one spot. I used this method and it is fabulous. No smell. I will never buy another spray again. I cannot recommend this enough. Admittedly I was a bit dubious at first, it seemed too easy, but give it a try and you'll never spend money on useless products again.

Kevin Martin

Thank you so much for this recipe. IT REALLY WORKS!!! No more smell.

Lisa Belanger

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing recipe! I was at my wit's end trying to find a product that would get the cat urine out of our carpet. I tried it on a small area first, just to see how it would work. After trying so many different things, I was a bit skeptical. I was amazed at how it worked so quickly. The urine smell had decreased so much that I hardly noticed it when walking into the room later in the day. And this was before vacuuming! As soon as I can pick up more ingredients, I'll definitely be using it on the rest of the area!

I volunteer with a non-profit animal shelter and will be passing along the site/recipe with high recommendations!

Thank you so much!
Chicago, IL USA

This works !! I swear, try it and you’ll be writing a testimonial too !! Thanks so much for sharing this with us !!!!!!!!

Owner of 4 indoor cats.

This remedy also works on rough old unfinished wood floors!! We decided to rip up the carpet in the bedroom where our 2 new kittens decided to use the carpet as their pee spot. The carpet needed to be replaced any way.

The wood flooring (pretty much unfinished) stunk of cat urine so I used your recipe on the wood floor.
IT WORKED Wonderfully!! I am so relieved and grateful for this recipe.

Now we can put new laminate flooring or carpet down. THANK YOU soooo much for your help.

This worked remarkably well and saved my sofa.

I googled kitten pee and found your brilliant recipe for cat pee removal. I got the kittens, 2 sweet Siamese, almost two months ago and this is the first time it happened - and the boy, I think, peed in two rooms tonight while we were out. It was dark brown and quite gross and now, thanks entirely to you, it's gone. GONE! :-)

Thanks very much! I went from shock and dismay to quite happy, all things considered. :-)


We got some couches from a friend that had a cat and our cat must have been able to smell it because he peed all over our brand new carpet. I tried numerous products and many hours scrubbing with no success. I finally found this solution and it worked beautifully!!! Thank you so much!


I can't believe how much money I've spent on cat urine products when all I could have used was cheap household products. This was amazing!!!
Thank you!!!!!

Sarah Jo Hall

WOW! OMG! It really worked!
My 18 year old cat doesn't realize her butt is hanging over the edge of her litter box inside my special custom-built litter-box house to help in containing the dust and odors of the litter box, so, most recently, cat urine sprayed over the edge of the extra deep box, out the door and into the carpet.
Within a day the odor had spread through my 6 room ranch and I was horrified at the smell. In a desperate search for a quick home remedy, I found your recipe and it WORKED! By the time I finished scrubbing with the baking soda, peroxide and dish soap, I immediately stuck my nose to the carpet and was relieved at the lack of cat urine smell.

Thank you so much!
Castle Creek, New York

Our 9 year old cat recently peed on our bed. We went out and purchased a new bed and within an hour of receiving it, she snuck into our bedroom and peed on the new bed! As I was desperately searching the internet for a miracle cat pee removal I found your article. I've waited two weeks to send in my testimonial because I wanted to be sure the smell didn't come back after awhile...IT DIDN'T!!!!! Thank you SO much for your article!!!! My bed is pee-smell-free thanks to you.

Hi, our dining room is seldom used. 0ur cat got in and used it as a toilet. lt was several days old and HUMMED. We scrubbed the carpet with soap and water then a deodoriser. The next day the smell was even worse. We found your site and followed the instructions . The day after treatment the smell was completely gone. Amazing!

Kerry, lreland

This is the best recipe!!  I have owned cats for many years and have used home made and commercial products.  I have spent a lot of money using miracle products when this is the real miracle.  This is quick and there is no cat urine smell after using this recipe.  It also gets the stain out great too!!  Thank you!!!


OMG!!!! IT REALLY WORKED!!! Thank you SOOOOOO much for this remedy. Like many other people, I've spent a good amount of money on many other products that claim to work but neither has got the stains COMPLETELY removed!! I just finished putting the baking soda on the carpet and my my my, this is great. Thank you once again for sharing

Vy Pham

The recipe is absolute magic. After weeks of suffering, ours not the cats, I used the recipe just once and could not believe how the objectionable smell just disappeared. Thank you so much for your wonderful help.

D.R. Portsmouth UK

I would never say something worked unless it actually did, and I honestly can't believe HOW well this worked! The smell is totally gone and the stain has disappeared! I have looked for years for carpet cleaners, even buying special pet cleaners for carpet and upholstery but when it comes to urine it just never would go away, not even when I would completely steam clean the carpets. This recipe is absolutely amazing! I will be sharing this with family and friends. Thank you SO much!

Mary Shaffer

Just wanted to write and thank you for this recipe. My husband and I have been at our wits end trying all sorts of expensive cleaners that didn't work or made the smell worse. I decided to give this recipe a try as a last resort and it worked wonders! No smell left at all! Thank you so much for sharing this.

Olivia, UK

This recipe for cleaning and removing pet urine and odor was simple, and effective. I have a female dog about eight years old who has been potty trained for years but sometimes she just has to go and the puddles are huge; she weighs about 40lbs. It took me about thirty minutes to scrub the carpet but it was well worth my time. The carpet looks like new and smells fresh. Thank you so much!

Just wanted to say Thank you, I tried many expensive alternatives first and cannot believe the results from your recipe!!! Thanks for  sharing.

Melanie from Michigan

I want to tell you thank you for your reference. It has saved yet another mattress in your global campaign of catalogical knowledge. It worked beautifully, if only the rest of my mattress didn't look like crap now next to the sparkling white clean zone. Thanks for the website full of great stuff and thanks for having a link to the recipe that saved my pillow-top today from clear across the world. It was spot on. :)

Boise ID

THANK YOU SO MUCH . I thought my mattress was a goner, I had tried those enzymes cleaners no such luck, so I decided to go on Google, after a long search I came across your article. WOW !!!!! IT DOES WORK. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT AND YOU GAVE IT FREE thank YOU . I am going to let every one I know. Every one who reads this , save your money go to the dollar store and for 5 dollars of ingredients, You too can  save your  mattress, OK ok a little of elbow grease but look at the alternative, Do you really want to spend hundreds of dollars or just 5 bucks well that's it for me thank you again . IT WORKS PEOPLE IT REALLY WORKS !!!!!!!!!!!


I seldom use the word awesome to describe anything unless it truly is, and your recipe is AWESOME. We are in the midst of moving, and I was worried sick about the little bit of cat urine odor in the house. I found your recipe, tried it in an inconspicuous place, and I could not believe it. I don't know why anyone would ever spend money unnecessarily on a bunch of spray products that really don't work and smell terrible.

Thanks a million from Arizona,


Thanks. It worked for me, too. Our dog is getting incontinent with age and she had a little accident on our bed.
I followed the recipe exactly, using a hairdryer to dry the mattress after the application. I didn't think the hair dryer would work, but it did and our mattress smells great and it's dry enough to sleep on.

Thanks Zoe!
You saved our cat's life, and our carpet. I was distraught thinking of losing my beloved kitty as my husband had had enough of the urine smell, but thanks to your recipe, the carpet smells fresh and my husband's frustration has turned to joy and I am feeling relieved. A million thanks to you for sharing this recipe.
Omaha, Nebraska, USA

O THANK YOU VERY MUCH I have Two Boxers and One Beagle and they have been having a Urine War over this one area on the carpet. I have tried 409 carpet cleaner and other carpet cleaners for pets but the smell and the stain has never seem to go away. I had been spending around 40 dollars a month on cleaners. The dogs always smell it and then pee on it again. I found this recipe online and tried it. The first time the Stain and Odor on the bottom of the carpet was gone. I did it on the top of the carpet and the Odor was gone too. I placed the baking soda on the floor and on the rug. I let the rug dry completely and the dogs back in the house. They never went on the area of the rug again. Thank you very much. You helped save me money on cleaners and time spent cleaning.

Cassandra, From Kentucky, USA

One of my cats didn't take to our move into our BRAND NEW house straight away and decided to pee in the one room that was carpeted and had no doors. The Theatre Room. OMG my partner was not impressed so one night when he was out I googled Cat urine on carpet and look what I found...MY SAVIOUR...this is the best recipe eva!!! many thanks for saving my cat and stopping the whinging from my partner :)

This really works, I have never posted anything but I couldnt wait to comment on this.

Cheers and many thanks Sarah, Australia, Perth

Hello fellow cat people!
I don’t usually take the time to review stuff like this, but this has been absolutely amazing!! We got brand new carpet literally less than a week ago, and one of my neutered, 14-year-old boys decided it was too much for him (he is generally timid and anxious) and began “anointing” it!!! Ahhh! As soon as I discovered what was happening, I desperately googled “cat urine removal” and stumbled upon this recipe. OMG!!!!! NO MORE SMELL!! I mean NONE!! The carpet smells a bit of soap (not offensive at all), but even the feel of it is normal again – no more sticky, yucky, cat-pee feeling under hand or foot!! This was inexpensive, nonstaining, and generally AWESOME! If this is an issue for you, please do try this, especially if you are considering re-homing your beloved pet as a last solution.
This really, really works!!!!!

Thanks SO MUCH Zoe!!

Nicole, Minnesota, USA

Wow. Worked superb. Many years ago I worked part time for a carpet cleaner and your method does as good a job as anything we did professionally. Nice! Thanks!

Hello, Zoe,

I saw your tip on getting rid of that cat urine smell with paper towels,
vinegar, baking soda and dishwasher fluid and tried it with a little
scepticism. It worked great! I dried my mattress in the sun and now
there is no smell at all!

Thank you so much for the tip,
Roshan George

WOW! I thought my daughter's futon mattress was headed for the trash pile. I decided to give this recipe a try, nothing to lose. I am so pleased. I followed the directions exactly, but used a carpet spot cleaner to extract the excess water and vinegar. No odor left!!!!

I'm going to tell all my pet lover friends about this.

Thanks again.

Count me in as a skeptic turned believer. I have had cats for 20 yrs and I think I've tried every "cat urine remover" on the market, to no avail. The other day one of the cats got locked upstairs overnight and she peed on my daughter's bed -- which had no mattress cover. My first thought was, oh my God, I'm going to have to throw away her mattress. I quickly googled my problem and came upon this solution. There was a lot of cat pee on the mattress and I had my doubts....but this WORKS! I have tried all of these products on cat urine at various times, but never together like this method. I am astounded that I can't smell one iota of cat pee. I put the mattress on the floor and really stepped on those towels (used them instead of paper towels)...probably went through 6 towels and worked up quite a sweat jumping on them! But I am totally amazed: no odor. Before you buy a bunch of products that don't work, try this. You probably have all the ingredients on hand.

I can’t thank you enough. I’ve never written a testimonial, but I feel like you deserve my time and thanks.

A friend of the family was kind enough to let me use her house while I searched for a job up North. I left a house down South, but brought my perfectly behaved dog and cat with me on my journey. They’re my children, I can’t live without them.

I had to make a quick trip home to check on my house and take care of some other business. I would be gone three days. My sister took my dog and, as usual, I left food and water for my lazy but lovable cat, with instructions for a neighbor to come by and check on him one of those three days. I had no concerns, it’s what I do every time I travel. Granted I’m in a strange house, but I figured they always travel with me, and always without incident, so why should I worry.

Well, my cat decided he didn’t like the new set-up and not only pooped on the down comforter and sheets, but peed, twice, on the mattress. I was in complete shock. I wouldn’t care if my cat had given me his version of the finger if it hadn’t been on someone else’s mattress. I was panicked. I searched for an answer - any answer. I stumbled onto your site. I figured, what the hell?

So, I mixed and poured, blotted and scrubbed, all the while cursing my cat and wondering how I would replace the mattress. I let the baking soda peroxide goo dry and paced the house. Twenty minutes later, I crept back into the room, holding my breath and suddenly very religious, praying out loud. I leaned down, put my nose as close as I dared to the mattress and with my eyes closed, sniffed. WHAT?!?!?!? Impossible! All I smelled was clean. It had worked!!!! Praise anything and everything, it worked!!! I was saved!!!

Your magic recipe did the trick. I really can’t believe it. I ’m singing your praises as I blow dry the mattress. Thanks you so, so much. Amazing!!


This recipe is amazing.
One of my cats peed in the inner lining of my best suitcase -- I was on the verge of throwing it out (the suitcase, that is).

Several repeats of this procedure cleaned it entirely--I was able to use it for my trip to Milan--it was as if nothing had happened.

It's very rare that my cats urinate outside the litter box, but I now keep  this clean-up kit in the house for handling these situations when they do arise.

thanks a million!


Zoe, I can't begin to thank you enough. After my boyfriend flew across the country to come and see me I found that my 2-year-old male did not take kindly to "his place" in the bed being taken. I was horrified when he chose urinating all over my mattress as his way to express his displeasure. Needless to say I was so embarrassed that I didn't know what to do. I couldn't (and still can't) afford to spend $20 on some spray from the pet store that may or may not work. The bed was stuck smelling like cat pee for days. Then I found your magic recipe and I'm glad to say my boyfriend and I can sleep in my bed again without being assaulted by the rancid smell. You may have saved my relationship! I'm telling all my friends with cats about this. Thank you so much!!!

   Grateful in Colorado Springs, CO.

Thank you so much for posting this information. You saved our new mattress: a week ago, we came home to our new mattress soaked with cat urine. Ugghh... we tried Odor Ban and it just masked the issue for a couple of days. We searched the web and came across your home remedy of vinegar/ water and then baking soda followed by peroxide.

We applied the treatment three times and we can not believe how well it worked. The odor is gone.

Thank you so much!

Sunni and Dave Mullinax
Paso Robles, CA

I am so impressed. I spent almost $100 on a variety of products that claim to do the trick, but only modestly worked at best.

About a month ago, we had new carpet installed. Our cat, who has no history whatsoever of peeing other than in his litter box, decided he was going use our new carpet as his NEW litter box. It wasn’t long before the odor became overwhelming, but we couldn’t see where he was doing it. I bought a small black light at the pet store, as a black light makes cat pee illuminate. I was horrified to see that he had gone in at least a dozen places.

Out of desperation, I tried your recipe. Wow. At first, the odor got a little worse. The smell became stronger after the vinegar and water application, so I became discouraged, but finished using the peroxide and dish soap as instructed. Once dry, there was absolutely no odor. It was completely gone. Totally.

I have an appointment with the vet this morning to see if there’s anything physically wrong. In the meantime, I have sprinkled all the affected areas with white pepper, as I heard that it’s a deterrent for reoffending. I hope it’s true.

I just want to thank you for posting this recipe. There is no need for people to spend crazy amounts of money on products that don’t work. This method is inexpensive and effective. Thank you so much.

I just wanted to tell you that my female cat jumped up on my new white sofa and urinated.  I was frantic. I tired some odor remover products that were available in the stores. Nothing worked. As soon as the sofa would dry, the smell came back. It was awful and she had actually not gone a lot. I searched the internet and found your website and saw the home remedy for odor removal...I was shocked!  It cleaned the sofa and NO MORE SMELL!  I was so afraid of what would happen after I had drizzled the peroxide and dish detergent over the baking soda and rubbed it in .  My fabric is micro suede, and it sure looked pretty bad.  Well when it was dry and I vacuumed the spot the sofa looked brand new. You can not tell the difference between the cushion that was soiled and the other cushion. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR RECIPE! 

Joyce, Pennsylvania

THANK-YOU with a capital T. Our cat was inadvertently locked in our lounge room and she urinated on the carpet right next to the couch! The SMELL!!!!!!!!!!!!! In desperation I tried this- our carpet is old Axminster with a a horse hair or wool underlay. I kept the area wet with a damp towel until I could get all the ingredients. As it was winter I dried it out completely at the end by standing a column heater over it.

It all worked....NO MORE smell.

Can't thank you enough!!
Anne-Marie, South Australia

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for your article on getting cat urine out of mattresses (and carpets).

My son moved in temporarily and brought his cat with him, which caused my other three to freak out and two of them started spraying on our front room sofa and our office futon! It was just awful... I mean really AWFUL, and to make it worse, my husband discovered it when he set his work equipment down on the sofa!

I found your web site and your process for getting rid of the pee-pee smell. I have to admit I was a bit doubtful that such simple household supplies would do the trick, but I have tried to many proprietary cleaners that have not, I figured I should let 'nature' try its best. I got home from work and followed your directions, starting with the 50/50 vinegar and water mix, the mopping up, then the baking soda, wait 15 minutes, then the peroxide with (DAWN) dish soap and a slight working in. I was a little afraid, since the futon mattress was black and process left a big white, baking soda marking all over the cover.

 The next morning, when it had dried, I vacuumed the whole thing and it came right up!!! No staining, no discolorations, and YES!! THE SMELL WAS COMPLETELY, COMPLETELY GONE! My husband said it smelled like brand new. I also used this on an area of the carpet that was a bit of a mess, and it too was fixed! I can't thank you enough for helping me! I'll never use another store-bought product for cleaning ever again! If someone out there is reading this post, wondering if they should try the mattress/carpet cleaning process..... YES!!! DO IT! IT REALLY WORKS! Thank you again!!!

Patti, Southern California

The recipe for dog and cat urine removal works incredibly well. I had a huge area due to our elderly, incontinent dog. We must have missed one of the very last accidents so it sat untreated for a few months. While cleaning carpets the smell was released. It was awful. I cleaned it and cleaned it. Nothing worked, not even the heavy duty pet store dog urine cleaner. The recipe on this site worked really well. I had to use it with my carpet because of the large area and that worked well. It take a long while to rinse out the dish soap a couple of weeks later but it was worth it!

Last night the wind blew the bedroom door shut, and my 14 year old cat was unsuccessful in communicating his need to exit .

I awoke at 2 a.m. to the odor of cat urine, staggered to my computer, and found your website.
I have an almost new pillow top mattress.
Much to my amazement, your home remedy appears to have worked like magic (albeit, it took more than a wave of my hand to enact).

I do believe that for a few pennies of non toxic , readily available household products that were already on hand, my mattress has been spared, not to mention the remainder of the cat's few lives.

You have my undying gratitude.

Just wanted to say "KUDO'S & HALLELUJAH!!" to this site for the homemade recipe for getting out cat urine smell out of carpet!  We are in the process of selling our house, the carpet is only 2 years old and there were two places in our carpet that one of our cats urinated in but I didn't find it til it was dry. I could not get the odor out of even after using two bottles of commercial pet odor eliminator and various other "homemade" remedies. I was very skeptical about trying another homemade remedy but decided to give yours a try. I could not believe my nose after I vacuumed it up!! AMAZING!! Yes, I honestly stuck my nose in the carpet and took a big whiff.....NOTHING! No smell what-so-ever!!

I was almost convinced that we were going to have to put new carpet in before trying this recipe. I have since given this recipe to a couple of my friends that have cats and our realtor asked if she could have it in case there were any of her future clients that had the same problem.

So I wanted to thank you for putting this on your site.
It saved me about $1500.00 in new carpet!

My realtor said that she had 6 couples go through our house during the "OPEN HOUSE" on Sunday and four of them commented on how "fresh & clean" the house smelled. I attribute that mostly to that recipe. I am wondering if it will work on a concrete garage floor. I think I am going to try it.

OMG, This recipe really worked...I no longer can smell the terrible odor of cat urine,

Thank you for sharing this information....

I'm sold!!  I was beside myself when our kitties were accidentally locked out of their litter area while we were out of town and used our brand new carpet.  I had tried a couple of products, but there was still a smell.  I used your method on the area.  It clearly made a difference, though I thought I still caught lingering whiffs.  We were planning to pull up the carpet and treat the pad (or replace that section) but in recent days, the smell is gone.  It had been humid too, so I don't quite understand what happened.

We had another problem area.  My son's kitty sprayed a hiking backpack I had loaned him.  I used a well recommended commercial product, but it still smelled.   I used "the formula" and it is completely gone! After the H2O2/baking soda had done their work, I hosed everything off to rinse and hung it to dry in the sun.  It is like new! Yaaaay!!!

Thank you so much for putting up this site.  It would have saved us a lot of money had we seen it first!  I have shared it with the professional pet sitting service we use...they were grateful.


HALLELUJAH, Finally a method the works !!!. Our cat has a bad habit of urinating on a shoe mat at the front of the house, from time to time. On occasion, his aim is right on the money, and a shoe has been forever "marked". He even had the nerve to mark a $200 pair of running shoes that I own. Needless to say, I was willing to spend some $$ to remove the nauseating urine smell from my shoes. Nothing worked 100%. I also must have tried half a dozen other home recipes. Again, nothing worked 100%. Then something really BAD happened. The cat marked my wife's favorite pair of walking shoes. For some reason, even though it was the cat that urinated on my wife's shoes, I was "charged" with the crime. Needless to say, I was "motivated" to expend my search for a 100% method to remove cat urine odor. I ran across your recipe this morning and gave it a try. After a few hours of running though the process, my wife's shoes are now 100% urine odor free!. Truly amazing results. I'll be bring my $200 shoes back to life in the next few days.

Thanks again

A couple of nights ago, I discovered that my roommate’s cat urinated in my bed. The event and my discovery occurred before I went to bed, I was furious and I don’t think my roommate has ever seen me as angry as I was in the 25 years we have known each other.. (We went to college together).

Anyways, once I stopped belting out colorful metaphors to describe what I thought of the cat, I immediately searched online for a remedy, and your thread appeared. With nothing to lose, I immediately acted to gather up the ingredients to follow your directions to the letter. I was SO IMPRESSED that the disgusting cat urine smell and stains were completely removed off of my mattress. When I returned the mattress back to my sleeping pleasure,  I smelled every spot to check, double and triple check, and there was no evidence of any damage from the cat.

Thank you for putting that advice up on the internet for all to see.

Your remedy worked flawlessly!

Sincerely, Jay

I followed the recipe to the letter. The mattress was clean and fresh the next day!....Thank-you.

I just want to say THANK YOU!!! I can not even begin to count how much I have spent on products to get the smell out of my carpets and furniture. I will definitely spread the word to all of my friends who have cats. Thank you so much! Now I can invite people over without worrying the house smelling like cats.


Worked like magic!  I used natures miracle from the pet supply. It did nothing.


Hi.  I just wanted to thank you for your home remedy for cat urine odor removal.  I have spent a small fortune on products that supposedly have an enzyme in them that attacks the odor.  Every time I use one of these, the smell actually gets worse.  Yesterday I decided to try your recipe and today the smell is gone. Thank you again for a great recipe!!!!!


I LOVE cats! Thank you so much for the free urine removal recipie. It works better than anything else I have ever tried and is much less expensive. My life would have been so much easier had I known this 20 years ago!

Thanks again,

Dear Zoe,

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your homemade recipe to get the cat pee out of my mattress!!! You are absolutely fabulous! I discovered the stain when I went to wash my bed sheets today - oh I was so upset! I thought I'd have to get a new mattress, but this seems to be working fabulously so far. I'm just about to sweep the baking soda off the mattress. If you're looking for a quicker way to dry the mattress, I have a hairdryer on warm laying on the mattress, pointed at the wet area. I keep checking it to make sure it's not hot, and it's fine so far. Good for people on the go!

Thank you again for your wonderful solution - it just saved me the price of a new mattress!

Take care,

I couldn’t believe how well this worked! My dog did a big urine stain on our bed (we went away, apparently she wasn’t happy!), and I didn’t think I would be able to clean it myself. This morning I followed your steps, using Napisan Oxy Action to replace the Hydrogen Peroxide (as suggested). I left the ceiling fans on high in the bedroom all day to dry the mattress, and have just vacuumed the rest of the baking soda off. To my complete surprise, NO STAIN OR SMELL!

Thank you so much for your hint. I thought I wouldn’t be able to get the smell & stain out and would have to replace our VERY expensive latex mattress!

Kind regards,

Thank You! I left my cat in while away for a few days. He apparently was not happy about being left. He did not use his litter box once and used my living room carpet by the window. My house reeked when I got home. I bought commercial cleaner and it did nothing. I can put my nose down in the carpet with your remedy and can't smell the urine. Thank you I thought I was going to have to replace my carpet.


Thank You!  I own three cats and have never had a problem with them going to the bathroom outside the litter box.  To my disbelief, what I though would never occur happened in a spare bedroom.  I knew about the water and vinegar part. I tried that and it just made the room along with the entire upstairs wreak of vinegar for a few days, then that awful cat smell came back!  I have been battling the smell for weeks, obsessing over new ways to rid it.  Overcome and starting to wonder if we would have to replace the carpet, I went online to find a cure.  It never dawned on me to try the other ingredients, and would you know it- I had all of them at home!  It truly neutralized the room!  There is a very slight scent of the dish detergent, which is more than welcome.  Thank you so much for the free recipe.  It worked like a charm and I'm no longer embarrassed about the rancid odor coming from the spare room!


Just wanted you to know that I had a disaster last week when my male cat urinated on my bed after being accidentally locked in my bedroom.  I had a brand new comforter and silk-embroidered duvet on the bed.  It and the sheets were soaked in a large area.  I used the recipe/solution that you give on your site for mattresses and modified it for the bed linens.  Miracles do happen.  Absolutely no smell after one attempt!  I am thrilled and very thankful.

Thank You!! My 4 year old cat was diagnosed with kidney disease and in a  three month time went from diagnosis to having to be put down. With the kidney disease my perfect cat began to have "accidents" on my dining room carpet. I tried the store carpet and cat odor eliminators and some just covered the smell temporarily and most didn't work at all. I found your website and had the same attitude as you, nothing ventured nothing gained. I could either keep using worthless cleaners and have my new cat start peeing to cover up the old cats pee or I could try the recipe out
and see if it works, and I had all the ingredients on hand already. I followed your recipe to a tee but used a spray bottle to apply the 50/50 combination of water and vinegar then worked it in with my fingers. After waiting all night to let it dry I vacuumed my carpet first thing to remove the excess baking powder, and after my first smell test I was
amazed I couldn't smell cat urine at all in places I know my cat peed on. I am going to repeat the process a few more times just to make sure there is no smell not only to my human nose but my other cats noses as well. Thank you again for a great recipe. And by the way the recipe worked great on the mattress as well!


Hi Zoe: 

Just to let you know that your cat urine removal recipe is excellent – it worked like a charm and did not ruin my carpets at all.  Furthermore, I now know that Sophie has urinary tract or bladder issues – I have her on canned food for urinary issues and already there has been a change – she is using the litter box and she is acting totally normal once again.  I realize there may be regressions here and there but that I can deal with.  I am also in the process of switching the other 3 cats to an improved food so if Sophie strays once in a while to their bowls it will not be a problem. 

Thanks again for putting that recipe on the web – none of the store bought cleaners really worked as well. 

Cheers, Joyce

Here is our story: My husband and I went on vacation and left our 2 cats at home (friend checked in with them to ensure they had a good dose of love, food and water). However, upon our return and while unloading our truck, I found one of my cats with all fours in a small potted plant, pissing off the back, landing on the carpet. I couldn’t believe it! They never did that before and believe my cat did it to make his point. Therefore, not knowing how long he had been doing that and if both cats were involved, I needed to take quick action. Turns out, after pulling back the carpet, I had a large area to clean, cause the whole house stunk. After trying several remedies, I found your remedy and it completely made sense. I cut out the padding around the area and then followed your directions to a tee, although, due to the size of the area, I think I used more like a ½ bottle of hydrogen peroxide mixed with the dish soap to compensate for the entire area.

I am convinced that this is the only way to get cat urine and smell removed. I’ve stuck my nose right into to the areas and I now smell NOTHING! I am so pleased that I didn’t have to pay for a professional and should be able to keep the carpet which was a custom made area rug.  Thank you for posting this remedy! You’ve saved me hundreds of dollars we really don’t need to spend in this economy. Excellent advice and wanted to let you know how much I appreciated finding this recipe.

Thank you again!

Best regards, Kristen, Rochester NY

Can't understand why my cats did this.. Must have been company in the area of litter box for over a week that intimidated them. Thought I had a plumbing leak.  Yikes, it was cat urine, after all. Tried purchased remedies to no avail,  Then found your recipe online and it worked like a charm. Don't know what made me happier  - That I had no
leak - or that I was able to absolutely clean that spot !  Thank you

Hi Zoe...Gotta tell ya, you have the best remedy of anything I have found yet.
My male cat has been marking, due to the 5 cats outside our house, who sit under the windows, porch,
and hang out. I went to put my 15 year old cat down last year, they told me the marking is due to the
stress from the out door cats. They suggested giving him an antidepressant. It worked. However, he marked all over my house...bought all these enzymes, blah blah blah...and none worked as well as your're incredible...noooooooo smell. totally works works...

Thank you so much...
