Did your cat accidentally pee on the carpet or rug? Here is a simple trick to help you clean and eliminate the smell of cat pee from your carpet.
Cleaning cat pee on your carpet
You'll be surprised by how simple and effective it is! To begin with, you will need a few different common household items: soda water, white vinegar, baking soda, paper towels, a rag, and a vacuum cleaner.
It may seem strange, but believe us—it really works!
Start by pouring soda water on the area where your cat urinated. Then, dab on it with a paper towel. It's important not to rub it. Not only will it not help, but you might also tear your paper towel. Once you have done this, take a glass and fill it up to about half of the glass. Fill the other half of the glass with white vinegar. Once you do that, mix it all together and apply it to the stain. Immediately sprinkle the spot with baking soda and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Once the 20 minutes are up, take your vacuum cleaner and vacuum up the baking soda.
And there you have it! Your carpet is perfectly clean and odorless! The good news is that this also works with other types of fabric as well.
Remember, it's best to clean the pee away from your cat. Take your cat outside of the room when you need to clean your carpet.
What should I do if my cat does it again?
If your cat has a habit of urinating outside their litter box, there are several explanations.
For example, one explanation would be that your cat is a male cat and he is trying to mark his territory. If this is the case, the best solution would be to neuter your cat.
Your cat might also be anxious and expressing their anxiety by urinating. If this is the reason why your cat is urinating outside of the litter box, you can try buying soothing anti-stress diffusers such as FELIWAY®.
Lastly, your cat may have a urinary problem. If you notice blood in their urine or if they seem to be in pain when urinating, consult your veterinarian.
