We bought a used microfiber couch, it's pretty dirty and smells like stale smoke. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to get rid of the smell and the old set in stains? It seems like I've tried everything, and either made it look more dirty or just added a "good scent" mixed in with the smoke! Help!
I have had great success with a product called Kids N Pets.
I buy it at Wally World. It is about $5 or so.
It works great on cat urine, dog urine, human urine and dog diarrhea. Here is the best part. The pets won't go back and do it again in that area. Just follow the directions on the bottle. Removes the smell completely and the stains!! (of course test it ion a not noticeable corner of the couch first.) but it did fine on my carpet and my leather couch.
I always have a bottle in the house with 3 cats (one who is a geriatric) and 2 dogs (again one is a geriatric) So problems crop up in there old age.
Good luck! Laura

If the Nature's Miracle doesn't work, here is what I did on my couch which is regular fabric.
I poured straight white vinegar on the area, got it soaking wet and let it sit about half hour then rinsed with cold water. Repeated again. I let it air dry which took about a day.
Then I put fabric softener sheets inside the cushion and zipped it up. I changed the FS sheet every day for about three days and left one in there. The vinegar removed the odors and is a natural disinfectant that doesn't change the color of the fabric.
The fabric softener sheet helped me deal with the vinegar sent until it went away (it does). Plus the sheet had a fragrance to it which helped my pet stay away from the area for a while. No repeat accidents on my couch! =) Good luck.

Hey have you tried using Hydrogen Peroxide? This can get rid of the smell so dog doesn't keep peeing on it. Also try to wash the cushions, but not the inside of the cushions. Here is what you use to make the "blend". Mix 2 parts water with 1 part Hydrogen Peroxide
Best of luck! Lauren

I have a lovely little chihuahua who has peed on more than one occasion on my microfiber furniture. I have cleaned it up and there are no stains, but I still have an odor problem. Any ideas to get the urine odor out?
