    Here are a few options: SIMPLE SOLUTION at PETSMART, they have various products, use Hardwood Floor Stain and Odor Remover. There is also a bottle called merely SIMPLE SOLUTION that may work just as well. The stuff is amazing. Try an enzyme cleaner like Nature's Miracle or similar. Simple Green may work. Vinegar, water, and some Dawn liquid soap.

      None of the products at PetSmart worked for me...

      One of my 2 cats (both neutered males) had taken to painting all of my walls, furniture, and anything else he could reach. I was horrified when I got a UV light. He never did that in all of the 9 years I've had him and didn't when I got him a buddy (they love each other and did so right away) but when a strange black cat started showing up outside both of my cats went nuts and the older one (9) started his wall painting, as well as the curtains out in the kitty room. I couldn't keep up with it.

      My cats are indoor cats so it's not like the stray is actually going to get in here but they both hate him (and he is neighbor's cats hate him too). I've tried cleaning with a pet urine enzyme and then spraying some "No More Spraying" but that hasn't worked. He's a sneaky little bugger too; he waits until he thinks I'm not looking and then does it. He's learned that the minute I see him backing his butt up to something he gets yelled at.

      It wasn't until I found "Cat Spraying No More" that I was able to finally get rid of this tiresome behavior.

      Now my house doesn't smell like a litter box anymore :)

      Here's a link the their site if you're interested in checking it out:

      I hope you guys don't mind me sharing this. Cheers!

    Along with the enzyme cleaner put baking soda on the seat and leave on long enough for the aid in removing the odor.

    I would use bleach mixed with hot water in a spray bottle.

      GET RID OF THE BED! All these remedies are not going to work.

    Mix bicarbonate of soda with water to a very thick paste (perhaps two cups of bicarb per side). Smear ALL over the car bed (may need to do top side first and bottom side separately). Leave till it dries and is 'firmish'. Vaccum off, smell gone. Good for carpets too, but in lesser quantities of course. Good luck.

    The best cleaner and ordor reducer that worked for me (especially on carpet) is to use Arm/Hammer Baking Soda and white vinigar. Don't be afraid to use alot! It will foam quite a bit --- give it a minute or two and then whipe with clean (throw-away) towel!

      Yes, it keeps coming back, doesn't it. If you have cement under your carpet? The urine of a dog or a cat will soak into the cement because it is porous. There is a way to take care of it, but go on Google and find it. Read a little bit and find out.

    Nature's Miracle is the best product I've tried after years of owning and fostering dogs and cats. It works!

    You need to buy liquibac. It is available in Canada. It is an enzyme that reacts when mixed with warm water. I've had several old cats who have accidents . It is the only thing that works

    I purchased Anti Icky Poo unscented, already to use, clean area with vinegar or whatever then spray lighly, kills any smell, I have a multi cat house, my house never smells.

    I agree with Bonnie, this product is great. You could also use baking soda, (plenty) and leave it in the sun for a day or two, this will also work. If it was a tom cat, it may take a little longer due to the strength ot their scent.

    We had a car bed several years ago when when our younger son was a baby. We took it apart and put it outside for a friend to pick up. Before the friend got there it rained. The pieces got moisture inside as well as getting wet on the surface. It took quite a while to drain it and dry it out. I don't have a suggestion. I don't have a suggestion of a product to use but you might want to make sure that the smell you are noticing is on the surface rather than inside.

      I know this is a very old post, but we have the exact same issue with a used car bed that we just bought for our son's third birthday. (Wish we'd just bought new!) We will try soaking it in bleach tonight. Thank you!!
