How to Clean Cat Urine Stains
Cleaning cat urine stains is relatively simple (and much less urgent) than cleaning up cat poop stains. Many times, you can use home remedies to eliminate the cat urine stains. Two of the most common household items that people use to remove cat urine stains are white vinegar and baking soda.
Whichever one that you decide to use has a fairly simple process. With vinegar, you use a solution that is one part vinegar and one part water, spray it over the affected area, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Dab the area with a paper towel, and repeat the process until the stain is gone. With baking soda, you just sprinkle it over the area, let it sit overnight, and vacuum it up in the morning. Sometimes you’ll have to repeat the process again, but you can usually get rid of the stain on the first go around unless it’s really set into the carpet or other surface.
These are the most common ways to clean cat urine stains because of the scent that they leave behind. You can’t smell it with your human nose, but your cat can. That lingering scent actually works in your favor because cats are quite opposed to strong scents. Most times, cats will not urinate in areas where there are strong scents.
