How to Clean Cat Urine from
Apply pressure by standing on paper
Cat supervision optional.
Step 1. If the urine is
recent, blot up as much of it as you can using paper towels or a
sponge. Apply plenty of pressure to reach the
dampness deep down. Stand on the paper towels for
more pressure if necessary. If
you own a wet/dry vacuum cleaner extract as much of the moisture
as you can.
If the urine has dried proceed to step two.
Step 2. Mix
a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water in a jug or other
container. Pour a small amount of this solution over the area of
cat urine. I used about 50mls. Then begin blotting (as described
above to soak up this solution). Or use a wet/dry
Step 3. Sprinkle a good handful of baking soda over
Step 4. Mix a quarter of a cup of 3%
(10 Vol) hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of dishwashing detergent and
drizzle it over the area where you have sprinkled the baking
powder and work it in using your fingers or use a brush.
Allow fifteen minutes for the solution to work and then begin
use wet/dry vaccum at this stage, just blot)

Step 5. The mattress must now
be left to dry thoroughly. A good indication is when the baking
soda feels completely dry. Then vacuum
up the dry baking soda thoroughly.
Use a hard bristled brush
to loosen up the baking soda if necessary.
If you live in a sunny climate you may be able to put
the mattress out in the sun to dry. You can also assist the drying process by
using a fan or heater.
Another idea from one of our readers is to use a hair dryer.
That's all there is to it. It's as easy as that.
you don't have hydrogen peroxide on hand you could substitute it
in an emergency for a spray laundry stain remover. Check the
bottle. If it says 'Oxy' anywhere on the label then it probably
contains hydrogen peroxide.
I have to admit that my mattress is quite old and I was able to
attack it with the gung-ho approach of 'Nothing ventured,
nothing gained'. I really had nothing to lose as either I
cleaned it effectively or I bought a new mattress. I'm pleased
to report that it worked for me.
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!!
I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for
your article on getting cat urine out of mattresses and carpets.
word...WOW!!!! It worked like a charm, thanks a million!!
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.
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!!
My older female cat stresses and pees on
my bed. This completely worked getting the odor & stain out of
my mattress. Thanks!
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!
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 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...
Removal of Cat Urine Odors and
Stains from a Mattress:
your cat from urinating on the bed purchase a plastic tarp and drape it over the bed.
Your cat will not like the feel of it and hopefully it will
discourage it from peeing on the bed. If it doesn't discourage
then at least it saves your bed linen and mattress from cat
I also recommend a product called SSScat. It is a motion
activated spray which delivers a burst of air to frighten your
cat away from an area. It is completely safe and harmless. For
more information visit the website.
SSScat. Very simple but
very effective to keep cats away from areas that you decide are
out of bounds.
