4 Ways to Remove Cat Spray - wikiHow
I don’t add baking soda to the hydrogen peroxide. I keep a spray bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide (as sold at the store) mixed with a 1/2 teaspoon of Dawn dish detergent (as a wetting agent) in my kitchen as a general purpose cleaner. Blotting up cat urine or puke, then soaking with the peroxide solution and blotting again, works better than the many commercial products I’ve tried over the years. Test all carpet and fabrics for color-fastness first. As a pet owner, I choose stain-resistant materials, so I’ve never had a problem.
1985: The future founder of Life’s Great Products, discovers that his daughters puppy would not housebreak because it smelled the marking scent in urine under the carpet. He purchased stain and odor removers from local pet stores and determined none worked and created mold and mildew and horrible odors inside the carpet. He spends the next seven years searching for something that removes pet urine and does not cause mold and mildew issues. He finally creates a blend of organic and inorganic digesters that target the five components he discovers are in urine and cat spray. The products are verified under a microscope total cleanup of urine results in the cleanup category and by pet owners given the product by Veterinarians to solve pet urine related issues.
For an added level of protection once the enzymatic cleaner is all dried up, it doesn’t hurt to vacuum the spot and then lightly spritz the area with an odor-masking spray like to further reduce the likelihood that the cat – or another feline in your household – will reoffend in the same spot in the future.Most people who have a spraying male cat are definitely aware of the cat's bad behavior. Why? Male cat spray is a pungent, ammonia-like odor that can perfume an entire house within minutes. Males—mostly un-neutered males—will spray an area with their urine to claim territory. However, if your male is upset, he may also spray. Common household cleaners cannot completely remove the odor, but there are a few at-home remedies and products made specifically for this purpose.Cat urine is bad. A male cat's "spray" is worse. While it might seem the same, your cat reserves his special stink for the spray. It's a mix of urine and fatty secretions that is unmistakably odorous, especially if it ends up in your nice clean basket of laundry. There are home remedies and expensive products, but the key is to act quickly if you want to get that terrible smell out of your clothes.Before you can stop the spraying, you have to clean up any urine — and clean it well. Traces of old urine can trigger your cat’s desire to re-mark an area, making it cyclical. (Be sure not to use a cleaner with ammonia, which is actually a component of cat urine and can trigger further marking incidents.)Mix 2 tsp. of laundry detergent with enzymes with 4 cups of water. The enzymes digest parts of the urine and will stop the odor. Make sure your laundry detergent doesn't use ammonia or bleach as ammonia can smell like urine to a cat and the odor can actually cause them to urinate (or spray) in reaction. (This mixture may affect dyes in carpets so test in an inconspicuous place for color fastness on your carpet before using. It also is excellent as a first-step cleanser for hard surfaces.)Cat spray or pee that lands on a leather couch will leave an unpleasant odor and potentially a stain. The solution is to respond as soon as you notice it and clean it up quickly.
