Getting rid of cat urine

    I spent much time making my cat stop peeing all around my house. Below are a couple of tips that helped me (hope they could help somebody else).

    * Keep the litter box clean! Cats can be picky creatures. If their regular watering hole isn't as sparkling as they would like it to be, they will find somewhere else to go.
    * Clean old messes thoroughly. Cats are creatures of habit. They will continue to pee on your carpet until they can smell their own vile urine there.
    * Use home remedy for cat urine smell. Start by blotting up as much of the urine as possible with old rags or paper towels. Next mix 3 parts water with one part vinegar and saturate the spot. Once the carpet is dry, sprinkle the area with baking soda. Next mix 3/4 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with one tsp. dish detergent and sprinkle over the baking soda. Try this first on a small inconspicuous area of the carpet to make sure the hydrogen peroxide won't discolor your carpet. Next, use a brush to work the baking soda in. Allow this to dry and vacuum it up. Use this method on your clothing, bedding, rugs etc. Simply add 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar along with your normal laundry detergent.
    * Bleach your cement floors and bare walls. Although this method is widely disputed because of the deadly reaction bleach has with ammonia (which is found in cat urine), if you go about it carefully, it can be an effective way to kick the urine smell out of your life for good.
