Ok, this really, really, really works. I got a recipe online last night (can't find the site now), but it"s very in expensive. 16 oz hydrogen peroxide
1 teaspoon dishwashing liquid (I used Dawn)
1 tablespoon baking soda.
I went to Target and bought a 32 oz bottle of hydrogen peroxide for 99 cents, a 32 oz spray bottle, and came home and doubled the above recipe to use in my spray bottle. I sprayed the area that had the smell about a 4 feet X 4 feet, mostly along the wall extending 6 inches from wall, I saturated it with the mixture and immediately, the urine smell was gone. I have the fan on it right nw drying it, but there is no cat urine smell. I am really, really drop dead happy. I dreaded walking into our 900 sq feet game room to the smell of cat urine. Last week I used a wet vac (small spots only) and used a product for it and scrubbed and sprayed and vacuumed, etc., but the smell was still there, until about 5 hours ago. I am so happy, please try the above homemade solution (it only cost me 99 cents for 32 ounces, plus a spray bottle, which you might have), good luck! I am one happy camper.

There are a number of remedies to get rid of Cat Urine smell. First of all train your cats to use the Litter box only for urination. And keep the litter box clean. You can clean carpets, curtains and sofas with a mixture of 3 parts water and one part vinegar, in order to make them smell free. Sprinkle the area with baking soda when its dry. Then mix 3/4 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with 1 teaspoon dish wash detergent and sprinkle over the baking soda. Use an old brush to work the baking soda in. Let it dry and vacuum it. This will help remove the urine stains as well as smell. You can mop or wash the floors with clean water. And then mop it with bleach. This would help in elimination of any smell.

I always use just oxyclean, somewhat concentrated. It has worked everytime. Beds, couches, carpet...

I have always used oxyclean, it versatile it works on most everything. Make it a little more concentrated then normal. It may take a couple times but it will do it

You don't use bleach on floors for ammonia from cat's urine. You will end up with something called CHLORINE GAS, which will not only kill pets, but will give you corneal scratches! DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT MIX BLEACH for ammonia smells.

Vinegar is the best product to use for cat urine smell. It works great on sofas and carpets. Mix 3 parts water and one part vinegar and put on the urine stain. Dry it with the help of a cloth or paper towels. When dry sprinkle the area with baking soda. Then mix 3/4 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with 1 teaspoon detergent. Sprinkle this over the baking soda. Then work the soda in with a brush. Allow to dry and then vacuum. Repeat the process if necessary.

Bleach is the best way to eliminate both the smell and the toxins that lie within the urine. Of course it won't be good on fabrics due to the bleaches colours altering. Try natural lemon as an alternative or vinegar soaking the spot. Cats urinate indoors for a reason. It's best to get to the heart of the problem.
I'm going to try the lemon juice myself thanks Shopzag! The vinegar and water and ammonia's and even the sodas and OJ and Bicarb (hell thats even worse to get out once its been wet, it leaves its own stains YUK) Once the sun hits the carpet again its a treat to smell all over. Ill also be online to cat urine off thanks guys/gals

I have a cat that keeps spraying. All you have to do is put ammonia every where he sprays and where he can reach.

A bucket of Bleach and water. Fill bucket to the top. Add 2 cups of Bleach. Put on heavy rubber gloves to protect your hands. Scrub affected area and let set to air dry.  Take cat and hold his head under the bleach water for 10 minutes or until bubbles stop rising.  Dispose of bleach water and cat in a eco friendly way.
