You love your kitty with all your heart, but the odor from her urine is something that your nose just can’t get past. While many commercial urine stain and odor products are available, a homemade treatment solution using hydrogen peroxide helps clear the air and reduces repeat accidents.

Step 1

Locate all the urine spots on your carpets. While your bare feet are sure to find the fresh, wet spots, finding older spots requires a different approach. You can choose to go the bloodhound route and get down on all fours and sniff out the offending areas, however, your nose may argue against this option. Your other choice allows you to channel your inner crime scene investigator. Turn all the lights out and turn on the black light. Those old urine spots will take on a glow and show you right where they are.

Step 2

Blot up any fresh urine spots with a paper towel or old cloth. Do not rub the spot, as this will spread the urine and the smell. Continue blotting until a fresh piece of paper towel comes up dry.

Step 3

Mix a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar in a mixing bowl. Pour this solution onto the urine spots and allow it to sit and penetrate the carpet fibers for at least 15 minutes. Make sure you pour enough liquid onto each spot so that the mixture penetrates down to the bottom fibers. Blot the liquid up with paper towels as you did with the wet urine spot. Continue until all liquid is absorbed.

Step 4

Cover the spot with a layer of baking soda. In a small bowl, mix 3/4 cup hydrogen peroxide with 1 teaspoon of dishwashing detergent. Slowly pour the solution over the baking soda. When the two mix, bubbles will appear. Use the scrub brush to work the solution into the carpet fibers. Let the mixture dry overnight. In the morning, vacuum the remaining powder. Repeat the steps until the odor is gone.
