This is useful if you need to apply the cleaner to a small area and don’t want it spreading all over the whole item. Brown vinegar works just as well, but it may leave a brown stain on some items. Apply the paste to the soiled area, let it sit for a few minutes, then sponge it up. Keep in mind that this mixture is really only good for fresh spots on non-absorbent surfaces like linoleum or well sealed wood. Sodium bicarbonate also play an important role in homemade cat urine cleaners for older stains or stains on absorbent material like carpets and furniture. 2 is an example of one of these recipes. The baking soda in this this recipe causes a chemical reaction with the other main ingredient and this reaction breaks down the uric acid crystals in cat urine.
It’s these crystals that retain the odor and make cat pee so tough to remove. You can solve your cat’s inappropriate urination problems and get your home completely free of cat urine odors, but the solutions may not always be obvious. Your email address will not be published.

Find Out Why and What You Can do. There is only one sure way to get urine out permanently without leaving a stain or any odor behind. This can be used on any surface or carpet or material. This formula is being sold on e-bay so someone will be unhappy, but I think profiting on other people’s misery isn’t fair. Mix together and soak area, leave on till completely dry if a white residue appears it can be vacuumed or brushed away. This has never failed and I have 16 cats. Thank you for reporting this comment.
How is it that the peroxide doesn’t bleach the fabric? I’m thinking maybe that kind of peroxide isn’t strong enough to bleach something? I don’t know but I’m willing to give it a try. My carpet isn’t that great a shape anyway. I don’t know what’s up with that. Might have to bring her crate in here after all.
Anyway, thanks for the recipe. You are right Beeanne,the peroxide we buy at Walmart is very concentrated. I would suggest trying it on a spot before using it on carpets or furniture as you would with any other cleaner but I doubt it would hurt anything. I am going to try it also. I found the formula some time ago but just remembered to get the peroxide a few days ago. This is the recipe I have. Basically the same,just a larger amount.
I’m finished shopping for the week but that will go on my list. Can you store it after it’s mixed or should you just mix what you are going to use? I guess just mix what you will use at one time. I was thinking maybe it would just lose it effectiveness or something. TO, thanks so much, I will try this. I would like to put carpeting back but I’m not going to until the peeing stops for good.
Thank you for providing this information. I’ve never found anything that completely removes cat urine. I got rid of my wall to wall carpeting years ago because I have a lot of cats. I’m going to try this on the carpeted cat condos that are a pee target. It makes sense that it would work. We’ve all seen what peroxide does when applied to things like pus and blood. It should do the same with urine and other organic stains and odors. I tried this a few days ago. Unfortunately I didn’t soak the carpet enough. I have several areas that have been targets lately. But I’m not giving up! Going to buy another bottle of peroxide and try again, maybe even pouring some on, not just spraying. I will say there was no adverse affects on the color where I sprayed which of course is stained yellow anyhow from the pee. I’d gladly have a bleached look instead! I use peroxide to bleach the small areas on white clothes that have writing or other color on them, so I know peroxide will whiten some fabrics.
