How to Get Rid of Cat Urine Smell

Cat Urine Smell

Cats are cute and adorable little creatures. There are plenty of reasons to love these great pets, but one thing out of the list is cat urine smell. Many consider that the offensive odor coming from cat urine is the most difficult smell to get rid of. Cat urine penetrates through carpets, upholstery, and pads, leaving unsightly stains and a strong, foul odor. The worst thing is that when you fail to remove the smell, your lovely pets are likely to go back and make that place their litter box. So before they wreak further havoc, read on and learn how to get rid of cat urine smell.

How to Get Rid of Cat Urine Smell

1. Use white vinegar and water solution.
Mix white vinegar with water. Blot the area first with a dry towel then pour the solution onto the area. Leave it for a few minutes. Using a wash cloth, soak as much liquid as you can. Sprinkle baking soda on the area and let it sit until the area has dried completely. Once the baking soda has returned to powder form, vacuum the area thoroughly. If the cat urine smell is still there, just repeat the process until it is completely removed. You can also use this solution to clean furniture and scrub the walls. Just remember to test it first on a small area to check if the solution does not cause any damage.
2. Try baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.
Form a paste by mixing baking soda with hydrogen peroxide. Apply this on cat urine stains. The hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria and the baking soda helps get rid of cat urine smell. The paste will remove the stains and you can apply more baking soda if the cat urine smell is not completely eliminated.
3. Use enzyme-based cleaners.
There are a lot of products on the market that claim to remove cat urine smell and stains, but not all of them works. If you see the word “enzyme” on the product label, you've found what you need. Many stain and odor removal products on the market only mask the smell through their sweet scents. Enzymatic cleaners, on the other hand, target the source of the odor, therefore completely eliminating that offensive cat urine smell. You can find these cleaners at pet stores. Soak up as much liquid as you can then spray the cleaner. Let it dry overnight then rinse the area with warm water.

4. Keep the litter box clean.
Preventing your pets from peeing in unwanted places is much better than trying to get rid of cat urine smell. Remember that cats are clean by nature. They do not want to stay and pee in places that are filthy and dirty. So if you do not regularly clean the cat’s litter box, chances are your pet will find another place in your house to set up its camp. Make sure that you give your cat a clean area with a fresh litter box.

Anime Like Toradora!

Toradora! is one of my all-time favorite anime. It follows the love story of Ryuji, a delinquent-looking student, and Taiga, a small girl with a fierce personality. They do not go along very well at first, but certain circumstances bring them closer together, until they finally realize that they are really meant for each other. I made a lens about Anime Like Toradora for those who are looking for romantic comedy anime.

Thick Bar vs Thin Bar: First Squidoo Lens

I created my first Squidoo lens! My lens is about using a thick bar or a thin bar for weight training. You see, I have been working out for the past year and a half, and I learned quite a lot when it comes to lifting. The thickness of the bar may not be an issue for some, especially beginners, but others actually care about it. There are benefits in using a thick bar, mainly due to added tension on the muscles. But this doesn't mean thin bars are useless. Learn more by checking out my lens, Thick Bar vs Thin Bar.

My Squidoo and HubPages Journey

So this is my first post which talks about the things I do to make money online by writing and sharing things that I am passionate about. For the past year, I have focused on writing at HubPages, a revenue sharing site where you can easily publish your articles and earn money on the side. I guess I can safely say that I have been quite successful on HP, although my earnings aren't something to brag about. After a little over a year, I'm very close to reaching 1 million views. There's some regret, because I know that I could have done a lot better in terms of traffic and income had I only exerted more effort in making more hubs. For those who are interested to know, I published around 120 hubs on my main account, but I deleted about 50 of them. Take note that I use a different username on HP.

Part of the reason why I started this blog is to focus on another HP account using my name. Actually, I have created the account about 6 months ago, but I barely touched it. So I want to start creating hubs and share them here with you, and let us all see how they would go.

During the past week, though, I have focused on my Squidoo account, which I also created about 6 months ago but I didn't really do anything. For the next two months, I would focus more on Squidoo, since I have yet to earn anything from it. I receive a decent amount of income from HP, so I want to diversify and try my luck on Squidoo.

My ultimate goal for 2013 is to create my own site, something that I've been considering for a long time now. I'm hoping to learn more about online marketing so I'll be better prepared for future projects.

There you have it. Let's see if I would be able to achieve all this by year's end.
