Abby's been peeing on the carpet again. No UTI, that's been checked out ,she's just weird that way.She's getting on in years, and I think she just goes where she wants . I've tried countless store bought remedies. Does anyone have a recipe for an all natural odor remover?

I'm sure you googled already, but I came up with this after doing a search:<br><br>
1. Soak up the urine with either paper towels or dry cleaning rag. Dab, don't rub, at the affected area until the urine is gone. Once the area is merely damp, apply either baking soda or distilled white vinegar to it. If you use baking soda, sprinkle it on the damp spot, wait for it to dry completely and then vacuum it up. If you use vinegar, mix one part vinegar to three parts water in a spray bottle and thoroughly spritz the area, leaving it covered with a clean towel or rag until dry. Washable fabrics can be cleaned of cat urine using a cup of apple cider vinegar in the washing machine.<br><br>
2. Blot with paper towels. Wet the area with a solution of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Make sure you use enough of the solution to penetrate the fibers deep down.<br>
After the vinegar treatment dry off the carpet as much as possible. You can assist drying by blotting with paper towels. If you own a wet/dry vacuum extractor use that to remove excess moisture. Apply a handful of baking soda over the affected area and drizzle it with a quarter of a cup of hydrogen peroxide mixed with a teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent. (not caustic detergent that you put in a dishwasher) Work it in with a scrubbing brush or your fingers to dissolve the baking soda and work it down well into the carpet. Blot again and allow it to dry. Once dry vacuum up the dried baking soda. Use a hard bristled brush to loosen up the baking soda if necessary.

Thanks for the ideas. I'm going to bombard the carpet this weekend. Hopefully, we can spring for some ceramic flooring soon.
