In general, you will not be able to remove the smell of cat pee with water and soap. Even though the settee, the carpet, or the clothes look clean, the smell lingers. This smell can be really penetrating and often returns after a normal wash or clean. So...it calls for different measures!

Why does the cat pee outside the tray?


how to remove smell of cat peeDespite the fact that you have a cat-litter tray, it can happen that the cat pees outside the tray. That can have a number of reasons.

  1. Cat-litter tray is not clean
    The cat-litter tray is not clean enough. Cats are really clean animals and if the cat-litter tray is too dirty for their liking, they will go somewhere else.
  2. Cat is ill
    The cat may have a disease. FLUTD is a common disease in cats and produces bladder stones or bladder infections, meaning the cat will have to pee at the most unexpected moments.
  3. Stress
    The cat may experience stress which causes upset, and the cat may start to pee in different places.
  4. Spraying
    Male cats also display spraying behaviour. If a cat has not been castrated or sterilised, it may display territorial behaviour and start spraying on vertical surfaces in particular. Tom cats display that type of behaviour.

You can try to remove the smell of cat urine with soda. Did you know it is better not to use vinegar or bleach - even though that seems counterintuitive? Further on, we explain the reason.

1. Cleaning soda
Some blogs say you can use a cleaning soda to remove cat urine from the carpet, rugs or mattresses, as this neutralises odours. Sprinkle some of this soda on the stain, leave it for a day, and then vacuum it up with a vacuum cleaner.

2. No not use vinegar, bleach, or chlorine
We also advise against chlorine because it is toxic and, like vinegar and bleach, it actually encourages the cat to pee where you just used it.

3. Do not use products that mask the smells
Cats use their odour to mark their territory. If they experience a new smell, this will invite them to urinate more until their own smell is stronger than the one of your product.
