Just like a toddler, a cat will occasionally pee on your carpet or your rug, and while it isn’t the most pleasant thing in the world, it happens. It doesn’t stop us loving our feline friends anymore, but the smell of urine can be a little overpowering, and well, no one wants their house smelling of cat urine.
However, just like when you have a toddler, you have to think about the more natural ways of getting the smells and stains out. After all, you don’t want your beloved companion to get ill from nasty chemicals.
Here are Three Ways you can Remove Pet Urine from your Home Naturally
The process starts off the same with both of the below methods. Start by using paper towels to blot any excess moisture and urine as possible – BLOT, not rub. The sooner you can do this after your pet has peed, the more effective it will be. Then, apply the solution of your choice and leave for it to be absorbed and to do its magic. Once you’ve done that, it depends on which method you used. You may need to wipe it with a damp cloth, or you may just need to leave to dry and vacuum.
Clean with white vinegar and baking soda
This uses the power of PH. The white vinegar lowers, or neutralizes the ammonia in the urine and makes it easier to remove, whether on carpet or laminate. The acid also helps to breakdown any bacteria that are lurking. The baking soda neutralizes the uric acid.
To use this method, mix equal amounts of water and vinegar, and saturate the area. Then, use half the amount of baking soda and pour over the top. You should see and hear a fizzing. Leave to dry and remove.
Create a vodka-based solution
Vodka has anti-bacterial properties, so kills bacteria and fungus as well as removing oil-based stains.
It’s simple: add cheap vodka to a spray bottler. You can dilute it with water as much as 50:50 if you want to make the solution last longer. Spry on the spot and leave to dry. You can add baking soda if you want before it dries.
Be aware that this method can damage the finish on wooden floors, so better used for tiles or carpet.
