Cleaning Cat Urine from Carpet or Upholstery

  1. Sorry the cat peed in the wrong spot.
  2. If the cat urine is fresh, you should try to blot up as much of the liquid as possible with a clean cloth. Do not rub!
  3. Flush the area with water, blot up as much as possible

After this, there are several methods:


Method 1: Traditional Carpet Cleaner

If you're dealing with carpet, find and buy a carpet cleaning solution from the store. Use as directed by the package.

Method 2: Enzymes

You can try using a product with "enzymes" such as urine off or urinout. These products definitely should be tried and used when all else fails.

Method 3: Laundry Detergent Blotting

  1. Mix liquid laundry detergent (Like Tide, Cheer, Gain, Purex, etc.) with cold water. You should use enough detergent, but not too much. Use at least 4 parts water to every 1 part detergent.
  2. Flush the stained area with the detergent solution and blot again with a clean cloth. Do not rub!
  3. You may repeat the previous step 1 or 2 times.
  4. Flush the area with clean water, blot with a clean cloth.
  5. Vacuum the area.

Method 4: Bissel Green Machine

I have found a bissel green machine cleaner to be very helpful in cleaning of all kinds of stains.

Method 5: White Vinegar

If none of these work, you can use white vinegar. Pour vinegar on the stain and let sit for 5 minutes. Wet area with water and remove the vinegar.
