Stressed and ill cats can accidentally urinate on furniture. Urine quickly absorbs into upholstery and leaves a distinctive odor that worsens with time. Odor indicates remaining traces of urine in furniture. Promptly clean affected furniture to prevent the urine and odor from further permeating into the upholstery and becoming more difficult to remove. Cats often continue urinating on the offending spot until all traces of urine and odor are completely eliminated.
Things You'll Need
- Rubber gloves
- Paper towels
- Cool water
- Non-dyed cotton cloth
- Cotton towel
- Molecular-based neutralizer
Put on rubber gloves to protect your hands. Blot any wet stains from the furniture with paper towels.
Fill a bowl with cool water. Soak a non-dyed cotton cloth in the water.
Sponge the furniture with the wet cloth to rinse out any remaining urine. Frequently rinse the cloth with fresh water to prevent reapplying urine to the furniture.
Blot the furniture with a cotton towel until thoroughly dry.
Spray a molecular-based neutralizer liberally over the furniture to dissolve the remaining odor. Follow the manufacturer’s directions on the product’s label.
Repeat the process if the odor remains after 24 hours.
