Oxy Clean with your steam cleaner will do the trick. I have cats and have had them urinate on the carpet when they were sick. Oxy Clean gets the smell out and removed stains as well. I love the stuff! It is the best!

Hello I worked in a professional carpet cleaning supply store for the past six years and am a certified carpet cleaner.

Please do not ever use oxi clean on your carpet, Oxi Clean is what is know as an oxidizer what it will do is strip your carpet of its color. You may think it is working just great, looks good, until you have your carpets cleaned then you will notice irreversible damage there will be spots where the product is used that will appear lighter and have a greenish tint. This cannot be changed. If you want to use this product you must use it on the entire surface equally as not to notice the lightening.

Next onto the subject of the urine smell, the only product I recommend is a professional product made by a company called Pro's Choice. They have a website at that goes into great detail for professionals on how to get rid of urine. The product that I would use is called OSR it will remove the odor and stain. They have a product called Urine Stain Remover that is absolutly the professionals dream urine stain remover. You just apply after cleaning and it will make the stains disappear. Truely a blessing.


Hope this helps, you can buy these products online just do some research.

Sorry I forgot to mention, as far as enzyme cleaners for urine go the one to buy is made by Big D Industries and is called Enzyme D. You can buy this at This is the most economical and is what the professionals use. Don't waste your money on the ones that the pet stores sell or grocery stores. This is a concentrate and will last you forever.

To clean up pet urine:

  1. Start by first cleaning the area with a Vinegar-Water solution: Use 2 -3 parts water mixed with 1 part Vinegar. (It's easiest to put this mixture in a well marked spray bottle). Clean and Blot, with a white towel or white rag.
  2. Buy "OUT!" (this is the most important step) brand pet odor neutralizer at Walmart, it works by "eating" any organic stain or odor by using "good bacteria and enzymes" it cost only $4.79. The main trick is to keep the "OUT!" wet so the good bacteria stay "alive" by covering the area with plastic wrap or an unused plastic garbage bag. Do NOT blow dry area as this will kill the good bacteria that "eat" the stain and smell. "Out" smells like yummy vanilla, which is nice.
  3. Ad

  4. The second day: Repeat the application of the "OUT" product.
  5. The third day: Pour plain old drugstore hydrogen peroxide on the area and let it fizz and bubble up anything that's left. Do this and I can bet your pet urine smell will disappear!

*** A side note: NEVER use Ammonia to clean up Cat or Dog urine! Because Cats adn Dogs will be attracted right back to that same spot to go again, since all urine is so strong in ammonia, this "fools the pets nose".

Be careful to pre-test the carpet in a discreet area before using the Hydrogen Peroxide, just to make sure the carpet won't fade. (I've use peroxide many, many times to clean spots on my carpet and upholstery and it's never hurt my carpet, upholstery or any clothing fabric.

Peroxide works to remove ANY organic stain (that means it will remove grape juice which is natural, but not grape Jell-O or grape kool-aid which is artificial, anyway, you get the idea.) Peroxide will also remove Blood, Coffee, and Hot Chocolate! Peroxide is a totally amazing stain remover! It works by using Oxygen to "fizz out" the stain, simple, but effective!


Do NOT use the stronger peroxide that women bleach their hair with. Use the cheap 59 cent peroxide that is sold in grocery and drug store's "first-aid" aisles.

Above is how I got rid of that nasty cat pee smell on our carpet, but this works just as well for dog urine.

I just want to say that i recently used a mixture of ammonia and oxy clean and although it did get rid of the "urine" smell, it left a funky sort of musky smell. Any answers?

Editor's Note: Leave out the ammonia. It just makes the animal want to use that place again. Pet urine contains ammonia. Try it just with the oxiclean.
