    You really can’t 100%. But to make it better, use Nature’s Miracle — it’s a natural enzyme, which is the ONLY way to break down cat urine. Follow the instructions on the bottle, but apply it several times (4-5). Good luck!

      Sorry for chiming in a bit late to the discussion mate, but I really feel like I need to add my 2 cents.

      Cats don't just pee on floors and beds because they're in pain - could be a multitude of other reasons! Most common is that male cats feel the need to mark their territory.

      As for myself, I finally found something that works for the cat pee smell in my home! A herbal mixture of sorts! I now recommend it to everyone because it works so freakin' well and we save SOO much money!

      You should definitely check it out, we don't even buy Odorban and the likes any longer :)

      What a relief to finally have gotten rid of the horrible cat pee smell, and for a decent price as well.

      Registered an account only to say this:

      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 :)

      To be honest, I don't know too much more about it so I did a quick Google search and here's a description of the spray with a long review as well:

      No I have not been paid for this post nor do I make any commissions off of it. I really just want to help you guys out. I hope you don't mind.

      I'm based in Sweden, by the way, so you should be able to get it too.

      Good luck with the odor! It really lowers your quality of life, doesn't it?

    Head to a pet store and look for enzyme products. The enzymes are supposed to break down the urine and rid it of smell. You have to get rid of the scent or it will draw the cats to return to the spot over and over.

    For organic stains use hydrogen peroxide.

    Try Odo Ban for laundry and scent removal.i got it at Home Depot and on Amazon. The cleaning product works wonders on our dog run FYI for anyone out there with dogs and cement run or driveways.

    Take it outside and soak it with a pal of 1 bottle hydrogen pericide, 3 tablespoons dish detergent, 1 cup borax, 1 cup baking soda, and warm water. Mix well before soaking. Let it sit for 4 hours, then flip and repeat. The next day take a hose sprayer and soak it down to run clear on bottom side, flip and repeat. Let it dry... Flip onxe a day till dry. The sun will help cure odors too. Don't worry about it wrecking the mattress, as it is already wrecked. This should work nicely.
