Whether you have a cat that poops on your couch or you just have a problem with odors, you can find ways to clean cat poop. You can even use a homemade cat litter cleaner to prevent cat litter dust from accumulating on your floor.
Cats are very clean animals. They often choose the same area to relieve themselves because it is the safest and most absorbent area in their environment. However, when a new pet or person enters the home, cats are often frightened and attempt to hide their urine.
If you don’t want to purchase a cat litter cleaner, you can try a simple baking soda and vinegar method. Simply mix 3 parts water and 1 part white vinegar. Pour the solution onto the stain and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The baking soda will absorb the liquid and help neutralize the odor. After about 15 minutes, remove the baking soda.
You may also want to try putting a little lavender essential oil in the softener drawer of your washing machine. This can help you get rid of the odor quickly.
If your cat has been peeing outside the litter box, it can be hard to get rid of the smell. However, you can try a bleach solution. This is an enzymatic cleaner that breaks down the molecules that produce the smell. It is also effective at removing traces of urine.
After cleaning your couch, limit your cat’s access. This will help prevent the cat poop smell from spreading.
