What You Should Know
- Cat urine is ammonia based
- Many cleaning products contain ammonia
- Use neutralizers or enzymatic cleaners to clean up accidents
It's important to remember that there's a good reason why your cat is not using her litter box.. so make sure that it is fresh and clean!
This is the best cat litter box accident prevention.
The main reason why your cat may have "accidents"
over and over again on the same spot.. even AFTER you have cleaned it repeatedly
is due to the strong scent of urine left behind.
She may recognize the scent from this area and then continue to use it if she doesn't like her litter box for one reason or another.
(More on litter box rejection later..)
So what's the plan to get rid of cat urine odor?
If you have a stubborn area that your cat uses over and over again
(somewhere that she shouldn't be doing her business) then you must get rid of the scent that your cat is picking up.
Do you have a tip that helps eliminate cat urine odor?
If so.. please share it
with other cat lovers!
What you really need to do is clean and neutralize
the soiled area with a cleanser that does NOT contain ammonia.
Also keep in mind that those regular everyday cleaners you use may remove the stains but they will only mask the odor!
Or worse..if they contain that dreaded ammonia.. they'll enhance the odor.
This is not what you want,
because your cat may keep finding that same spot and using it as her new bathroom.
While you may not notice the odor, your cat's nose is very sensitive.
She will pick up the scent and may just keep using it unless you neutralize the area to get rid of that smell completely.
Cat Urine Smell Cleaning Solutions- The Homemade Cat Urine Remover
First absorb any urine from the soiled area with dry paper towels. I like to put a bunch over the area and then step on it to soak up any fluid. Do not rub.
One solution I swear by is white vinegar and water.
It's safer for the environment and cheap.
The measurements may vary but I use 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of water and just add it to a spray bottle and voila!
Be sure to test colourfastness of your carpet on a hidden area before application.
It is also a great cleaning alternative because it is very acidic and helps neutralize the cat urine odor and a lot of other foul odors for that matter.
Enzymatic cleaners also work VERY
well to get rid of that smell for good so DO keep them both handy for those cleaning emergencies.
