  • Best solution is to get pet stain urine remover from the pet section. It has enzymes that break down the urine proteins and works well on big spots. Just saturate and let it evaporate. or 50% white vinegar and 50% warm water is also good. Spray the spot and then blot it up. or Spread a layer of baking soda over the stain and allow it to dry overnight then vacuum. (this is the least effective because it doesn't reach the pad where the urine, ultimately, soaked into. A wet dry shop vacuum and warm water soaking the stain and then extracting it, repeatedly followed by the pet stain remover can defeat the worst case scenario.
  • Spilled urine?! Why did you have a container of urine to spill? In any case pet store have stuff for cat urine that works pretty well, or get Resolve pet care stain remover.
  • I feel compelled to ask why you have stockpiles of urine lying around but after I think about it, I don't really want to know why. Your personal life is your own business and it is none of my business really. Vinigar can neutralize the odor and...why do you have so much urine...wait no, I don't want to know... ok, what kind of urine is it? To be fair, you can't drop a bomb like that and keep us guessing. What constitutes a lot? Are we talking gallons here? This could be a reason to move. Why don't you just change to a new apartment and leave all that urine behind. If you can't do that, You may have bigger problems than urine. Get some help.
  • I don't even want to know why urine was in a container that could be spilled. The only place urine should be released from the body is into a toilet or possibly while in the shower.
  • 1/5 gallon is enough to have soaked through the carpet & into the padding. That padding is pretty much like a sponge, it needs to be cut out & replaced. Leave the wet padding = Get used to rotten shrimp. Of course that's a littler easier said, than done (pretty easy near corners though). Basically, you move the furniture, roll the carpet back & cut out the wet padding. Take it with you to match up at a hardware store (dont forget 2" masking tape). The next stop is a pet store for a hign-quality enzymatic type odor neutralizer. The most effective ones are usually for felines & say: mix with warm water. The warm water brings the enzymes out of dormancy to feed off the uhh - shrimp. TRY to find a non-scented brand; you want to eliminate the odor, not mask it. Spray BOTH sides of the carpet at least a foot beyond visible wetness. Once the carpet dries, smell it (point blank) & re-treat if necessary. Once the shrimpfest is over, tape the new padding in place & roll the carpet back. You can then either pay someone (or rent a "kicker") to stretch the carpet back. I'll leave the googling to you, its pretty easy though. You could TRY to just simply apply the neutralizer & hope for the best; but you'd need at least 1/5 gallon at the exact same spot to guarantee enough "soakage". I still doubt it'd be a permanent solution; for one it'd take so long to dry, you'd probably end up with mold/mildew growth (could add mildicide). Just throwing ideas out there, comment if you have any more info/questions. Good luck!
  • May I ask how you spilled urine? You might want to try a odor neutralizing spray that's made for pets.
  • White vinegar and water works well if you have to find something around the house, but I do agree with others that pet odor eliminators work well.
  • Oh, man, I'd love to hear the story behind this question
  • Go to the pet section in walmart. Its call Out it has enzymes in it to kill the bacteria. It a great product and I use it for the pets I have when they have an accident on the rug. Pour enough to get down to the padding or it wont work. Get a gallon if you need it .
  • OMFG, is this for real? It cant be real, it's just friends trying to run the points up, right?
  • What were you using a LOT of it for anyway? If your talking gallons, don't even bother.
  • OMG, I would so NOT be sleeping in that house.
  • Clean the carpet with soap and then spray a deodorant on it (it is the cheapest way)
  • Now hold on a minute, 1/5 of a gallon? That's at least a couple days worth. I've got a better question, WTF are you REALLY doing with this stuff?
  • Sorry, but I'm laughing so f*king hard here, I can barely type. LOTS of urine spilled, Rotten shrimp smell, & its not the first time? Dude, I would seriously consider getting a LITTER BOX or something! You obviously don't have a handle on the matter whatever you're doing. I want to ask so much more, but somehow know I'd never be the same again.
  • Household cleaner spray? So obviously this is a joke? Yeah, thats what I use on urine spills.
  • There is an enzyme that cleans. One is called Out and there are others for pets. I finally found a product online at www.justrite.com which is an enzyme cleaner that you soak the carpet with and it pulls the odor and bacteria from underneath the carpet. NATURES REMEDY has enzymes to get rid of the problem. You can find it at any pet store. There aree some choices. www.justrite.com may be the best. Put a lid on it and eat flowers from now on.
  • Vinegar might be strong enough, it's worth a try.
  • Fools, there is no need to ask why he has stockpiles. i have had stockpiles just like the "lazy grandpa". i dont piss in a toilet, back hurts. i piss into a wash basin. enuf said, that helps and is the right way. i used a jug with a tight lid before, nothing wrong with that. dont like it, dont see it. i dont store it for months, max wa like 4 days of urine that i summarily emptied into the washbasin. Thanks
  • and listen, what is the need exactly to take all that trouble of "neutralizing" just make sure not many ppl come over , thats it. live life to the full and easy. regards
  • hahhah yeah this is a question that definitely needs more elaboration. You might try some oxy-clean in it...oh but wait..Billy Mays just died...
  • I am so glad you included the link; http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/4580839 explaining just how this horrible accident happened. Understand completely your reluctance to use an Arizona Tea Bottle again as a urinal. But I must say, I do admire your choice, if it had been a 2 Liter twist off plastic coke bottle...... I may have been concerned...... you understand. So kudos to you and the(larger opening), Arizona Tea Bottle.
  • Try a hospital supply place . They usually sell wheel chairs, oxygen, feeding formula for the aged and depends. There should be something for accidents.
  • I've been cleaning carpet over 10 years. And I can tell you that Pet odor from urine is a very common (or uncommonly from humans) problem that could be much more complex than on first impression. Urine can easily soak through the backing of the carpet into the padding underneath. In more severe cases the urine can penetrate into the sub-floor beneath the padding. This creates a problem that is multi-layered. The urine also provides for the growth of bacteria. This in turn contributes to a worsening of the odor problem and can contribute to permanent color loss of the carpet fiber. To eliminate this problem, the urine must be removed or neutralized from each of the layers affected. If the contamination is limited to only the face yarn of the carpet then the cleaning itself may effectively remove the odor. In more severe cases a urine neutralizer may be applied. In the most severe cases, replacement of the carpet padding, treatment of the under-side of the carpet and the sub-floor may be required. Even replacement of the carpet, however, can not guarantee complete removal of the odor. Most people think they can just spray on some kind of enzyme-based pet odor/urine chemical they bought from a pet store. I can tell you right now that if it was a significant amount of urine, you likely have a problem that is multi-layered, and just spraying on something isnt going to fully get rid of the problem. Odor removal is a big business, because it's not always that easy to remove, and cleaning doesnt always get rid of it. Unfortunately I think you'll probably have to call a professional carpet cleaning company. www.heartlandsteamcleaning.com
