Cat Urine Removal Tips


If there is one smell that is harder to get out than any other, it’s the smell of cat urine.

No matter how hard you try, it just seems like scrubbing it only makes matter worse.

Perhaps you’ve gone out and spent money on products like Natural Miracle and, no question, these products do a great job of cat urine removal. However, what if I were to tell you that there are free, homemade alternatives that can often be as effective as the commercial ones?

A very effective home recipe is as follows:

  • Exactly 1 quart of ¬†hydrogen peroxide (3%)
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • A teaspoon of liquid soap

Essentially, you mix these ingredients together (carefully) and put the mixture in a spray bottle. Be careful when mixing as you don’t want a mini-explosion on your hands!

You can then thoroughly soak the offending area. Be sure to test the area first for color fastness as the hydrogen peroxide can cause some fabrics to lighten.

In order to identify the urine-soaked area as accurately as possible, it is advisable to use a black light. You can tape off the area with some painter’s tape so that when you turn the lights back on, you can easily see where you should be spraying.


Cat urine removal is a job nobody wants to have to do but with a recipe like the one above, you can thoroughly clean an area and be certain any remnants are gone.

Your next job is to identify why your cat is peeing outside the litterbox in the first place.
