Cat Urine on Dog Bed?

My cat has just peed on our dog's bed. Right after I felt the wet spot I wiped it with soap and water. After that I did a mixture of vinager and water, it's still wet and smells like cat pee and vinegar. It still stinks. And I mean stinks. I can't wash the dog bed because there's nothing on the tag saying anything about machine wash or any wash. So I don't know if I should even just soak it in the bathtub. It's polyester fiber, with no removeable covering. Please Help!

This recipe works on anything with cat urine on it from carpet to beds to whole chairs. I bought a small chaise lounge chair for toddlers at a yard sale only to discover it was covered in cat pee. I soaked it in a kiddie pool in this solution and then dried it in the sun. I did it twice to make sure all of the odor was gone so that my male dogs wouldn't get any ideas about urinating on it. The recipe is 2 TBS of dawn dish liquid, 2 TBS baking soda, 16 oz. hydrogen peroxide. Mix and pour on affected area. Let dry naturally. Do not blot or dry up.It is the ONLY thing I have ever found to be successful!

I cannot believe how effective this recipe was! I did exactly as you prescribed and the smell is gone!


Believe me, I have a sensitive nose for cat urine and after following this recipe just once, the odor is gone. Thank you for sharing it!

Thank you! I used Dr. Bronner's soap instead of Dawn, and it worked perfectly. I can't smell it at all... thanks!

For cat urine damage, I always use baking soda. just let it sit on the spot for a while and vacuum or shake out. You may have to do it more than once, but it does work. Vinegar is also fantastic to keep the smell out of the air, just set out dishes of vinegar and it will absorb the smells of anything. Good Luck

I cant imagine for a second that a dog bed wouldnt be washable - & lets face it, if its soaked in cat pee you've got nothing to lose but to try a couple of things. The alternative is to throw it out & get a new one.


I adore my cats & have tried so many different products to clean cat pee out of various things, the one I swear by is a recipe I mix up myself out of a few household items, it works without fail, everytime & the smell never comes back.

I got the recipe from - if you want to get rid of the cat pee you have to try this. (I'd tell you the recipe, but these people have saved my marriage more than once so they deserve the referal)

My dog bed doesn't fit in my washer, and I would rather try to save it than throw it out.

well i wash all my dogs beds. i figure if it doesnt come out right OK because i wouldnt have used it again any way.


if the bed smells as bad as you say you probably wouldnt use it so try washing it.

If you could ask the cat its opinion, it would probably tell you to take the bed away from the dog and give it over to the cat, which would then merrily proceed to shred it.

Polyester fiber (same stuff used to fill some pillows) can be washed. If the dog bed is too large to go in your washing machine, a neighborhood laundromat may have an oversize tumble washer in which it will fit.
