Go to a pet store and buy some Nature's Miracle. This stuff works great. (08/06/2009)

You can purchase something called Urine Out! at Wal-Mart. It also helps to keep cats from spraying. Just remember to really saturate the area as the spray needs to reach the padding of the cushion, also. (08/06/2009)

Take the foam out of the cushion first. If you cannot rinse the microfiber, then lightly spray with white vinegar (vinegar disinfects, removes scent and the white vinegar smell disappears quickly). Then rinse the inside cushion and pour the white vinegar through it, rinse again. Let it air dry. Should be dry by morning.

Then place a few fabric softener sheets inside the couch and between the cushion/fabric. Change it after a day or two. This helps to keep it smelling nicely after the vinegar. It works. I did it to my regular fabric couch and they haven't had another accident since. Plus its cheap.

The best stuff I have used is a mix of peroxide, baking soda, and Dawn. I don't know the exact measurements, I just use a small bottle of peroxide, about half a cup of baking soda, and a few squirts of Dawn. You have to use it up after you make it, it won't store, but it takes out the urine amazingly well. Its a mixture made for taking out skunk odors, but its knocks out pet stains. A guy on PBS showed how it breaks down the stain by attaching to the molecules and breaking them apart. All I know is, it took cat urine out of a mattress and carpet like nothing I have ever used.

Our dog had an accident on our micro fiber couch the best thing that we found that seemed to work that and on carpet is the highest count rubbing alcohol you can find. Not only do you get rid of smell you kill germs. Use a spray bottle. (08/06/2009)

Trisodium phosphate will destroy the odor. Always use cold water to restrict (skin, fabric) from drawing in the odor. Use gloves with this and always test in a out of the way spot. (08/06/2009)

Enzymatic "cleaners" really are the trick, but it seems you don't have to shell out the big bucks to get the effect. The post suggesting the use of Dawn was on the right track, but according to the Dawn website, only its "Dawn Plus" line contains enzymes, so stick with that one, (you can print a coupon online, too), or another brand which you know to contain enzymes, (call the 800 number to confirm).

It may be as simple as watering it down in a spray bottle, but you can certainly add other things, such as vinegar or hydrogen peroxide, according to online recipes. Whatever you do, it should not be necessary to pay $20-$30 per gallon for Simple Solution or some such, when you can make your own for a fraction of the price. Plus, any old black light will do for locating the areas to treat. (11/04/2009)

I have a cat that peed on my fabric chair. After I tried a couple of things I bought online that failed to work. I checked with my veterinarian and she said to get the kinda brown colored Listerine or the generic brand as long as it is the brownish color. Mix 50/50 with water and it works on everything!

Did extensive research on "pet proof" sofa fabric. Microfiber seemed to meet requirements. One of my 3 cats (suspect 16-yr-old altho she's never done this) peed last nite on my 2 wk old sofa!!!!! It'd been there at least 8 hrs so I didn't hold out much hope. Tried the hydrogen peroxide, abt 1/2 cup, drop or two of mild dish detergent (I had 7th Generation) and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Sprayed on dry, set in stain. Several hours later stain is gone and no smell. I know odor can still be in hiding, but I'm encouraged and will reply if necessary. So glad I found these postings.
