I searched all over and this is the recipe that I found to ABSOLUTELY work. You probably have these items in your home already, If not they can be purchased at any store such as Wal-Mart or even the dollar store.
If you have a black light shut off all the lights in your home and turn on the black light. The urine in the carpet or on the furniture will glow. I did not believe this until I tried it and it really works and let me tell you I could not believe at all the urine spots on my carpet. There were places I hadn't even realized my cat could get to. Once you find the urine spots, then pour the solution evenly on the whole spot, making sure to saturate the carpet and padding under the carpet (you may want to do a spot test on your carpet or furniture first, but it has never left a stain on anything I have used it on).
Once the whole urine area has been saturated block it off to keep people or pets from walking on it until it is completely dry. Do not blot up any of the formula because the area needs to be saturated thoroughly and then dry on its own. After it dried, Vacuum spot to remove any white powder left over from the baking soda.
Scotch-Guarded carpet takes a while to absorb the liquid, but after it sits there a while it will absorb into the carpet and padding. You may have to pour a little extra solution on this type of carpet. It may take a few days to clean room by room but it will be well worth it in the end.
Just remember with older odors saturate really well with the solution and let stand until dry. You can also use this on most anything. This solution has worked on both fresh and old odors. The main ingredient in this is the peroxide because it works the same on the odor as it does on a cut or a sore, it brings the urine to the top of the carpet and it is removed by the oxygen molecules.

Removing cat urine from oriental area rug? What type of cleaning service should I use?
Cheryl from Houston, TX
Use "Nature's Miracle". It is a liquid which neutralizes the odor. Do not use any other cleaning product on the area, just spritz on Nature's Miracle and the smell is gone. I order it from Omaha Vaccine but you may be able to find it at a pet store. I've got nine cats; I live by this stuff! Sharon (09/27/2007)
As an aside, Kitty should go to the vet to see if s/he has a bladder infection.
Good luck. (09/28/2007)
