Why Does My Home Smell Like A Litterbox

Cats can have house-soiling accidents, which are often due to a medical problem or fear, anxiety, and stress.

The longer the urine stays in the environment, the harder it is to remove the odour - treating the accident right away is critical and removing the urine thoroughly and completely helps minimize the odours from lingering in your home. Also, be sure to thoroughly clean litterboxes at least once a day.

The following products that you may already have at home help get rid of the urine smell:


1. Dishwashing Detergent

Using an eco-friendly/non-toxic brand is recommended. Mix a quarter teaspoon of dishwashing detergent with one cup lukewarm water.


2. White Vinegar

Vinegar can offset and neutralize the bacteria in the urine. Mix white vinegar in water to dilute it (try 1 and a half cups of warm water and ½ cup of vinegar).


3. Baking Soda

Baking soda is magical for soaking up odours. Start by sprinkling it on the urine area and leave it there as long as you can, as it takes at least a few hours to let the powder become effective in removing the smell.


4. Enzyme-based Cleaner

The enzymes actually break down the acid in the urine, helping to get rid of the smell at the same time. The natural enzymes and helpful bacteria help get rid of the bad bacteria that is causing unpleasant odours.
