I’m a cat lover, I have three males at home, and I enjoy playing and having fun with them all the time, but there is one nasty thing about male cats I really don’t like, it is the fact that their urine is extremely annoying and smelly!
One day when I came home and I immediately started smelling a horrible smell around the living room, I knew it was cat urine, but I wasn’t sure where it came from!
Indeed, all my male cats are not neutered, I know, very bad decision, but I’m against animal cruelty, God created them for a purpose, so who am I to interfere with His creation and I love having kittens around the house, my son just loves it.
So, back to my urine stained living room, after searching for some few minutes, I realized that one male cat urinated near our sofa, first, then the other two took turn!
Yes, I had a little lake near my sofa, it was stained and smelled like a dumpster!
My wife tried to get rid of it by cleaning it with water and some dry paper towels but it didn’t help, and it was simply hurting our noses and our well-being!!
So after many tries we found the best way to get rid of the urine smell from our faux leather sofa.
This is what I’m going to share with you, so, follow these instructions:
Here is what you are going to need, however, you need to act very quickly because once the urine dries it will be very difficult to get rid of it, but not impossible:
The first thing is to clean as much urine as possible using a dry cloth, here , you don’t need some chemical products or some special conditioners, just use a dry cloth to get rid of as much urine as possible.
Then before the urine dries, mix half a glass of warm water with a quarter of a glass of white vinegar.
Then simply wipe the infected surface thoroughly until very clean.
White vinegar is a very powerful detergent that is not only going to get rid of the smells, but it will also kill and get rid of yeasts and germs in your faux leather objects.
However, because we are dealing with faux leather objects and items, we have to be very careful because a lot of fabrics will get damaged from too much vinegar, yes, act quickly, but wisely as well.
Always, before applying your vinegar to your affected area, apply a little to a small hidden area, the bottom of a sofa or the inside of a faux leather bag, you need to do this first, apply only a few drops, wait 15 minutes and notice if it lost its color or started shrinking. If this happens, forget about vinegar and do this:
Order a good faux leather cleaner.
Yep, when it comes to expensive objects, rather be safe than sorry, if the vinegar doesn’t work, forget about it and use a good faux leather/ vinyl cleaner, the one I use often is the following: Blue Magic 800 Leather & Vinyl Cleaner
