Whatever, you do not use heat on the area that smells like urine. the heat will only make the smell worse. I learned it the hard way!

Try Natures Miracle from a pet store. Also you can get carpet cleaning solution for pet odors. It does work.

Try mixing cup water, 2 tbsps of baking soda & 1/4 cup of white vinegar together in a spray bottle. Spray on the stain & rub with a cloth to remove excess moisture, do not use disinfectants as it leaves a lingering small of ammonia which will encourage the cat to keep peeing there. I have been told steaming may set the smell into the carpet, give this mixture a try.

Thanks for the advice, my cats have decided to pee all over the place. Was using water and vinegar only. Will use the new mix, adding baking soda

Oddly enough I've searching for weeks for a home remedy, no chemical type solution for this problem. I've tried several suggestions found all over the place on the web... Some listed mouthwash, others peroxide, vinegar, baking soda, etc. So, fed up with so many options I filled a spray bottle with an entire bottle of peroxide and whitening mouthwash, sprayed away and violá, stink and stain GONE! No residue, no carpet discoloration, no damage to padding... After several fails it was nice to finally see results. Good luck!
