    mix 1/4 cup baking soda ,1 tablespoon of dawn dish soap and 1 bottle hydrogen peroxide put on area let it sit at least 10 minutes-------- Or commercial grade products get online or janitorial supply house/company. Nok Off ;Urine Off ; Anti-Icky Poo or Stinkers are all enzyme cleaners/odor removers that actually work. Natures Miracle does but need to use repeatedly it's not as good; you need to put odor enzyme on area skunk sprayed and leave it on til it dries it's not a scrub or wash. THIS is for cat & dog pee but tells ypou best /right way to use it ------ Most enzyme cleaners come in a spray bottle. This is deceptive, because just spraying a light layer of enzyme cleaner over a urine stain will not result in complete cleaning of that spot. Cat/dog pee wicks(spreads seeping outward), and unless the enzyme cleaner completely envelopes all of the cat/dog pee, even it won’t work. “Spraying” doesn’t work. Dousing, pouring, and soaking are required when cleaning up cat urine.

    To properly use an enzyme cleaner on a fresh stain:

    1. Blot up as much of the urine as you can before applying anything.

    2. Soak the affected area with the enzyme cleaner.

    3. Let the enzyme cleaner sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

    4. Blot up as much of the enzyme cleaner as possible.

    5. Leave the enzyme cleaner to air dry.

    I think you are talking about the smell in your house.

    put bowl of ground coffee around the smelliest area. Use the other suggestions on the outside of your home and on your dog or cat.
