Easy ways of removing the smell of urine from clothes, furniture and carpets.

You probably have tried every cleaner on the shelf and still the stains and odors of urine seem to come right back, there is a reason for this, typical cleaners only mask the odor and then they return an in couple of days.

These are not fun situations to go through when you have to remove urine smell from your car seats, couch, mattress or carpet. If you don't clean it the right way the urine will dry out and only urine smell will remain that's hard to ignore.

Here are a few ideas that will get the urine smell out of your carpet, clothes or furniture.

  • Listerine Mouth Wash

Listerine will help eliminate the urine smell. First dilute the Listerine with water and clean the area with the solution. After that use clean towels to blot up the moisture. Listerine smell will remain for a couple of days, and after that no urine smell should remain.

  • Vinegar and Baking Soda

You will create a baking soda and water paste. Rub that mixture into urine area. Then use distilled white vinegar over it. Use clean towels to soak up the moisture well. Repeat the process again, but no more then two times, this might damage the material if done too many times. Rinse the area with water and make sure to blot the moisture with towels again. The vinegar smell will be gone in a couple of days and so will the urine.

  • Wintergreen

Get a bottle of wintergreen scented rubbing alcohol from a dollar store. Scrub the stained area really well. The alcohol dries fast and will not need to be rinsed out. The smell of the wintergreen disappears in a few days. This is the cheapest method and works great.

  • Peroxide

Peroxide works great on removing the smell of urine, but be careful it can be tricky on surfaces which might discolor easily. Peroxide breaks down the components in the cat urine which cause stains and odor. Pour a small amount directly on the area and allow drying. Then rinse with warm water and soak up with a rag or paper towel.

  • Peri-cleaner

One last trick that works well is using Peri-cleaner this is used to not only urine but all sorts of stains as well, Urine, feces, ink; almost anything can be removed from your clothing with peri-cleanser! You can find it in many personal care sections, just ask your pharmacist. To use, spray over the stained area, soaking well. Rub with a brush, and then wash as usual.
