How to Remove Urine Smell From Carpet

I had an incident where my cat urinated all over my rug while we were out of town. Here is the solution that worked to get the urine smell out. This was a small rug so I was able to remove it from the room and take it outside where I flipped it over and sprinkled it with baking soda. Then using vinegar I saturated the piece of carpet and let it sit for an hour. Find out my results below.

    If the cat started pooping in the corner, put a litter box in that spot. That goes for any area in the house where a cat may be urinating or pooping. Even though you don't want a litter box there, do it for awhile to see if you can correct the behavior

    I really hope you never have any hot humid days in your home. That's like someone putting baby powder on raging B.O. and calling it done. If you don't get the enzymes out of the carpet, they're gonna be there forE.V.E.R.
