Cat Urine Smell in Old Carpets

Category Odors

How do you remove cat urine smell from old carpets? The cat urine happened from a previous renter. The carpets have been professionally cleaned, but this hasn't helped much. I have read a lot of ideas, but I have a feeling taking the carpet out is the only sure way; however this is a rental and that's not an option.

Use febreeze I had that problem years ago and it worked!

I've tried everything, and the only thing that I've found that works is this:

Soak the places that smell with a mix of 50% hydrogen peroxide & 50% water.

Sprinkle a handful of baking soda over the area.

Mix 1/4 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 1 tsp of dawn dish soap, and drizzle that on the baking soda.

Work everything into the carpet with a soft brush.

Let it dry and then vacuum.

It might take 2-3 tries to work completely, but don't give up!
