Our cats are perhaps the most lovable creatures in the world, but cleaning the cat’s urine of the floor is still a big job. Not only do you need to remove the cat’s urine, you also need to remove the smell. Otherwise, your cats will smell the remains of the urine and pee there again. To effectively remove the smell of cat urine, you need to kill the bacteria, which are the main cause of the smell.

One of the best urine removers for cats is Nature’s Miracle. This is an enzyme cleaner – you can buy it from places like Target, WalMart, or Petsmart. It is a concentrated liquid, and comes in a white bottle with a red cap. The instructions on the bottle are pretty easy to follow. Not only does it clean cat urine from your floors, it can even remove it from carpets and textiles. These things can be a bit pricey, so you might want to get a blacklight to use with it. Turn on the black light in the dark and it will make the spots of cat pee glow yellow or green. Then you can only use Natures Miracle in those places, without washing the entire floor or carpet.

Any commercial enzymatic cleaner will probably work as a cat urine remover – it doesn’t have to be Nature’s Miracle. The only thing is that enzyme detergents can be a bit picky. Not all of them work on all types of stains. You need to make sure you get a brand that works for cat urine removal. So the best place to buy some is probably your local pet store. Look at where they sell litter for cats. Better yet, ask the sales staff where they keep cat urine enzyme cleaners.

Another good way to clean cat urine and its odor is to use a steam cleaner. Friends have had good results with the Polti Vaporetto, which uses steam to disinfect and remove dirt. This steam is also very effective at killing the bacteria in cat urine, and works both on the floor and carpets. However, Polti is on the expensive side. Something cheaper like the Light and Easy steam mop works almost as well, for a fraction of the price.

If you’re on a tight budget, you can soak the spot where your cat peed with strong disinfectants like Dettol or Listerine. You may need to repeat this a few times to remove all the smell. Pouring boiling water over the spot can also work – you just have to be careful. Some types of bleach can kill bacteria and should do the trick as well. But you want to check the ingredient list before using it. Make sure it doesn’t contain ammonia or it will just attract your cats to pee there again.

So here are the top three ways to clean cat urine from your floor:

1) enzymatic cleaners such as Nature’s Miracle;

2) Steam cleaners;

3) Any strong disinfectant (like what they use in hospitals).
