Removing Animal Urine Odor from Antique China Cabinet

After my father died I had the task of cleaning out his house. He had many cats and two dogs inside and he never really cleaned out the litter box so after years of that his house smelled really badly of urine and feces. I am trying to sell some of the wood furniture, but I need to get the smells out. I've seen stuff for if the cats urinated on the furniture, but not just odors like the wood has. Is there something out there for that?

There is a product called Nok-Out that is recommended highly by Mary Hunt. You can get it on Amazon.

Try dusting the piece in baking soda and letting it sit in the sun.

Since this is furniture you are trying to clean it may be okay to clean outside but not to leave outside and should not be in hot sunlight.
If you have large pieces it will be very expensive to purchase commercial Enzyme Cleaners as you have to wet each spot and any spot you miss will definitely retain the odor; even if it's only the odor from being in the same room as cat odors have been.


I believe you can use some other methods since these odors do not appear to be directly from pet urine but only from the air.

There are several excellent guides on YouTube but here are a couple of links to check out.
I can say that I have used a weak solution of ammonia and water and while it takes uses damp clothes reaching every spot it does a good job and is very economical. The biggest problem with using Ammonia is the whole area HAS to be well ventilated and the use of gloves is highly recommended.
Always use cool water and mix a few tablespoons of Ammonia in a quart of water - use a bowl with rags or a spray bottle with lots of clean cloths.
You will be amazed at what this cleaner will remove.
