Hi Its Ken The Odor Dude here.
Quite often cat owners have the unfortunate incidents when they are taking their beloved to the vet or a cat boarding facility. The cat gets very nervous and stands up in the cage to empty his or her bladder. More often than not the urine goes over the edge and straight into the car seat…deep. This creates a big problem for cat owners (and dog owners)
How to remove Cat urine from a car seat. (also Dog urine)
Mix up some of our cat urine remover (Formula One) or apply the odor removal product shown below
Spray the seat with a spray bottle filled with our formula to identify where the urine is. (Only required if you don’t know where the urine is). The photo below shows the seat foaming after a light spray to find where the urine contamination was.
If you do not want to make your own formulation this concentrate product works very well. We have had hundreds of positive feedback about it and tested it ourselves.
Douse the affected area with formula two
Once you know where the contamination is mix up 1 quart of Formula One (Use Formula two if the urine is older than 2 weeks) and spray a very heavy application onto the area. Ensure you have towels underneath the seat to catch the residues. This saves having a wet floor as well as wet seats.
Check on progress
Smell the area you just treated. If you can still smell cat urine then reapply the product and repeat the treatment. Usually 2 applications will be the maximum you will need to do.
Remove the chemical and urine residues
Either extract the area with a wet vacuum or use dry towels folded in half and push them firmly on the seat to absorb some of the cleaning product. Any wet vac is ok for this as shown below. Or if it is a sunny day just leave the car to dry naturally.
Or if you do not have a wet vac then use folded up towels and apply pressure onto the car seat.
That’s it you are done. Leave the window open slightly and leave to dry.
What to do if the smell persists
Ozone is very effective for odor removal after treatment and will boost the whole process plus sterilize your vehicle
