Will Vinegar Get Cat Pee Smell Out Of Carpet?

Yes, it can!

1. Gather as much urine as possible.

First, use paper towels to soak up as much of the urine as possible. Throw the paper towels away in the trash.

2. Apply Vinegar

The area, a few inches beyond the pee zone, is treated with white cleaning vinegar.  When it had been sitting there for about five minutes,  took a cloth and blotted the vinegar.

3. Sprinkle baking soda

After that, sprinkle the area with “a large handful of baking soda.” Be generous in this regard, and check to see that the baking soda has reached every affected area.

4. Add bleach

Take care with this step, and remember that bleach should only be used if your carpet is very light or white. If you are using a dark carpet, you can skip this step.

5 Add detergent and mix

The following step is to combine one-fourth cup of hydrogen peroxide with one teaspoon of Dreft baby detergent and afterward drizzle this mixture over the baking soda.

6. Massage In

While wearing rubber gloves, thoroughly work the mixture into the carpet to the greatest depth that you are able to. When doing this, you might find it more convenient to use a brush or a cloth, but it is perfectly acceptable to just use your hands.

7. Wait 20 minutes

Now, wait 20 minutes while the mixture sits on the carpet.

8. Begin to blot the area once more

Because you do not want the cat urine stain to be replaced by a stain from your cleaning products, carefully blot the area one more time using a cloth or paper towels. Check to see if the stain has become oversaturated.

9. Leave overnight

Now, let everything sit overnight to absorb the liquid and dry out completely. Alternately, you can hasten the process by positioning a portable heater right next to the stain, or you can use a hairdryer to assist the stain in drying out more quickly.

10. Vacuum

In conclusion, finish the job by using your most powerful vacuum. The following day, clean up what’s left with a vacuum, and voilà! There is no longer any odor of cat urine, and then it smells fresh and clean!
