Which Cat Urine Cleaner is the Best?
Get Rid Of That Cat Urine Smell for Good!

On this page you will find some great tips on choosing the best cat urine cleaner and getting rid of that nasty urine smell once and for all.

Choose the right Feline Urine Removal Products.

The ideal urine cleaner will be one that targets the bacteria and enzymes in the urine, breaks down the crystals properly, and one that is strong enough to tackle the smell effectively.

While doing all this, it needs to be kind to your carpets and furniture, safe for your cat, and preferably friendly to the environment. Phew! That might sound like asking for a lot, but it's not.

Find Those Hidden Smelly Urine Stains!

Lastly, one very clever tip and something I didn't know until a friend told me: If you can smell that pungent cat urine smell but you just can't find where it is coming from, try buying a UV black light.

Apparently urine shows up under UV light, and a black light (it's the same type of light that makes your teeth and white shirts glow brightly in a night club!) will make it show up in the dark!

If you want to try this out, you can purchase a small affordable and portable black light which uses the correct light wavelength to show up pet urine. You can use this to find old stains or to check that you have thoroughly removed all traces of urine after cleaning.

Choose The Right Cat Urine Removal Product For You. 

Which type of cat urine cleaner you choose depends on your own preferences and the type of material that is affected (carpet, hardwood floor, soft furnishing), so always test first, and find out what works the best for you.

If you have any other ideas, or have found something that works really well that I haven't mentioned here, I would love to hear about it. Why not email your ideas and I could include them in this website for other cat owners to benefit from! 

I have found a company that provides all natural cat urine cleaners, specially formulated to get to the root of the problem and yet be environmentally friendly as well as affordable.

Why Does Cat Urine Smell So Bad?

We all know that stale urine can smell really bad, but why? Well, apparently crystals form in the drying urine, and it's these crystals that create the extreme odor of ammonia and also make pet urine so difficult to remove.

Normal cleaners might mask the smell temporarily, but all too often it returns as the crystals reactivate, especially in moist conditions. To get rid of the smell properly, it is the crystals that need to be broken down.

Another problem is that if the odor is not gone completely, your cat will still be able to smell it and will probably wet in the same place again. Some household cleaners contain ammonia as an ingredient and so these can actually encourage your cat to urinate in the same spot!

Make Your Own Homemade Cat Urine Cleaner.

Alternatively you can make your own, often from simple household products.

I have hunted to find different peoples recommendations and give you here a summary of do-it-yourself cat urine removal solutions.

  • Always test any product bought or made on a small, inconspicuous part of the area first, as you need to be sure it won't cause any damage, whatever material it is you are trying to clean.

  • First of all, blot away the worst of the urine with a dry cloth or paper towels. Don't rub, otherwise you might just spread the urine around or rub it in even further. Rinse the area effectively with clean water and then blot the area dry again.

You can then try cleaning the area with one of these solutions:

  • White vinegar in a solution of 1 part vinegar to about 4 parts water seems to be popular.


  • Baking soda is often quoted, either made into a paste that is spread over the affected area or sprinkled dry onto the damp patch and gently patted in, then allowed to dry before brushing and vacuuming up.


  • A 3% peroxide solution can be sprayed on, left for a few minutes and then cleaned off by blotting again.

And obviously, the quicker the urine is cleaned away the better, as the older and drier it has become, the harder it will be to get rid of that offensive smell.

So I hope you have found my guide on tips for cat urine odor removal and choosing the best cat urine cleaner useful. Don't forget you can email me your own ideas about what you find works the best.

I wish you happy cleaning and a house free from any old nasty cat urine smell!
