How to Remove Pet Urine

Easy Solution to Remove Dog and Cat Urine

Remove Odors & Stains from Mattress

  • Baking Soda
  • White Vinegar
  • Dishwashing Detergent (Dish Soap)
  • 3 % Hydrogen Peroxide (10Vol)

Step 1. If the urine is recent, blot up as much of it as you can using paper towels or a sponge. Apply plenty of pressure to reach the dampness deep down. Stand on the paper towels for more pressure if necessary. If you own a wet/dry vacuum cleaner extract as much of the moisture as you can. If the urine has dried proceed to step two.

Step 2. Mix a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water in a jug or other container. Pour a small amount of this solution over the area of cat urine. I used about 50mls. Then begin blotting (as described above to soak up this solution). Or use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner.

Step 3. Sprinkle a good handful of baking soda over the area.

Step 4. Mix a quarter of a cup of 3% (10 Vol) hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of dishwashing detergent and drizzle it over the area where you have sprinkled the baking powder and work it in using your fingers or use a brush. Allow fifteen minutes for the solution to work and then begin blotting again. (Don’t use wet/dry vacuum at this stage, just blot)

Step 5. The mattress must now be left to dry thoroughly. A good indication is when the baking soda feel scompletely dry. Next vacuum up the dry baking soda thoroughly. The baking soda absorbs the odor and urine. (Use a hard bristled brush to loosen up the baking soda if necessary)

If you live in a sunny climate you may be able to put the mattress out in the sun to dry. You can also assist the drying process by using a fan or heater. Another idea from one of our readers is to use a hair dryer.

That’s all there is to it. It’s as easy as that.
