Pour undiluted white vinegar into a spray bottle. Mist the tiles and grout with the vinegar. Rub with a damp cloth. Vinegar is an all-natural cleaner and deodorizer that neutralizes the cat urine and removes the odor.This is why it is absolutely essential to use a cleaner that can break down the uric acid. Soap, vinegar, baking soda, ammonia, chlorine, and hydrogen peroxide (to name the most common cleaners) simply are not chemically capable of breaking down the uric acid in cat pee. These cleaners and deodorizers only temporarily make the smell go away and appear to work because they do clean up the other components of the cat urine. But when exposed to humidity, the uric acid salts cause the uric acid crystals to reform. This process releases the smell again; not always at levels detectable to the human nose, but the cats’ more sensitive noses can smell it.

Pick one up at most any store – pet store, hardware store, discount department store.

Then get to deodorizing so whatever product you choose can work overnight.I had this this terrible cat that constantly would mark his territory. He sprayed urine on the cushion of the sofa. I used a combination of carpet deodorizer (powder) for pets and baking soda, and let it sit there for about a week, and then vacuumed, and then reapplied it, waited and vacuumed again. By the third time I couldn't smell it at all. (10/02/2008)
