If you’re a cat parent you’ve probably experienced your cat doing the nasty deed of “going” outside the box. Over the years of working with pets, I have met many people with cats urinating on towels or dirty laundry. Another one of the popular places for cats to “go” is on the rug in front of your shower. The nice thing is (if there is a nice thing to this scenario) these can be thrown in the washer to eliminate the cat urine smell.
Get Rid Of The Cat Urine Smell
But what if your kitty decides to go on the couch cushion, sprays on the side of a chair or goes in the middle of your carpet? No worries, we’re here for you. If your cat pees on something that you can’t just throw into the washer, we have a few simple steps to resolve this issue.
- For fabric, while the area is still wet try to absorb as much of the pee as you can.
- Re-soak the area with water and again absorb as much of the moisture as possible.
- Apply an enzymatic cleaner to the area allowing it to soak in and completely dry to fully removed the smell
