If you have a cat then you will have to deal with your pet peeing in your home – it’s just how it is. Cat urine is very fragrant and will not only leave a stain but a bad odour which is why you need to know exactly how to clean up the stain as well as get rid of the smell as soon as possible.
How to Clean Cat Urine And Remove The Bad Smell?
First thing you need to do is blot as much of the urine as possible. Use an old cloth or an old towel – you can also use paper towels but you will end up wasting a ton so I don’t recommend it. Just lay the cloth or towel over the wet area and press on it. And once you are done with this, I recommend you wash the towel with vinegar so you can use it again.
Next, it’s time to mix three parts of warm water with one part of white vinegar in a spray bottle. Start spraying the mixture over the affected area and then let it soak for 5 minutes. Vinegar is a great natural cleaner plus it also has antibacterial properties which come in handy when dealing with cat pee.
The next step is sprinkling baking soda all over the stained area so the powder can soak up both the urine and the vinegar mixture you sprayed previously.
After waiting for at least 10 minutes, get a bowl and mix half a cup of hydrogen peroxide with a few drops of liquid dish soap. Stir then pour the cleaner over the area.
And then just let all the ingredients dry and work their magic. Usually, an hour or two is enough before you get your vacuum cleaner and suck up the baking soda.
