    OMG!!!! I hear you on this one! I have a really hard time with that! Where is the cat urine?? Is this a piece of furniture you are re-doing? If it is in a piece of furniture you are re-doing or wood of any kind, check out my post...

    If this is cat urine on upholstered furniture:


    I use a handheld Bissell cleaner for spot cleaning on upholstery. Put a carpet cleaner formula in the machine and spray with the nozzle. Lightly scrub and suck up all the liquid. It does wonders to remove stains and you can also use this method on rugs. Then use ODOBAN to be able to deoderize and clean the area to remove the smell.


    Sometimes though if the cat smell on furniture is in a basement, you will have trouble just cleaning the upholstery. I had some experience with that as well. When we bought our house, the cat smell was so incredibly strong I could barely take it. We have totally eliminated that smell. The way we did it was by washing all the walls. I carpet cleaned the basement carpet twice and we put a de-humidifier in the room. I cleaned any furniture and upholstery like in the above example and added a de-humidifier. When that de-humidifier ran I couldn't smell cat. However the least bit of moisture brought the smell back into the room slightly. Over the years it dissipated but to really get rid of the smell completely we took up the carpet and put down a rubber floor over the cement. I don't smell anything when I go down there now. GOOD LUCK!!!!!

    Hi ! Go to any let supply store and buy an enzyme cleaner . This works by "eating"

    natural substances like urine , blood , feces & vomit , instead of just masking the smell . Good luck !!!

    Use paper towels to absorb the excess moisture. Apply a thick paste of baking soda on the area and let it sit for three to five hours. The baking soda will absorb the vinegar and urine, so no residual scent. Vacuum up the baking soda and let it air dry

    After you remove the urine using any of the previous methods, pour some clay- based kitty litter on the furniture to absorb any lingering odors. Then vacuum or shake off the litter.

    Vinegar and unsweetened Lemon Juice. If you use sweetened, it gets sticky and then you need to use Something like Ajax Liquid to get it unsticky.
