How to Remove Cat Urine Stains from a Blanket.

 

Cat Urine…Wow!  What a difficult problem. Cats are intelligent creatures. We regularly see cat’s urinate on their owner’s prized possessions, i.e. comforter, blanket, and pillows when they are upset with the owner. Often this is when the owner leaves the cat locked in the house for a long weekend. When the owner returns home the cat will urinate on the bedding to show their dissatisfaction.

 

A cat urine stain is composed of many different matters: salts, minerals, and pigment. Cat urine is a water soluble stain that will wash out if the stain is still wet. A dried and set cat urine stains will need a lot of extra help in the form of an enzyme.

 

Either apply the enzyme directly on the cat urine stain or use the enzyme solution to soak the entire garment, the technique you choose to use will depend on the amount of urine and the color of the garment. If there is a little urine stain, than apply the enzyme directly to the stain, but if there is a lot of urine or the color bleeds, then soaking the garment is a better choice.

 

A good enzyme remover will remove all of the visual stain and smell unless it has oxidized, in which case the enzyme will remove the smell but not all the visual stain.

In some cases the yellow oxidized stain can be removed with an oxygenated non chlorine bleach.
