How to get rid of cat pee smell

Top Tips:

1. Timing is everything
2. Soak it up
3. Keep cool
4. Avoid ammonia
5. Don’t punish your cat

The sooner you can clean up cat pee, the better, as, over time, bacteria begin to decompose chemicals within the urine, like urea, which gives off that nasty ammonia-like smell.

Enzyme cleaners

Baking Soda and White Vinegar

Detergent and Club Soda

A solution of 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water can be used to neutralize the smell of cat pee. Soak the area then let it dry. The smell should disappear over a few days.
