    This may seem like a no brainier, but many people fail to do this and just buy an item
    on the first site they see. The easy process encourages people to avail the products of their choice by simply
    clicking with mouse instead of going to market. Consider store brands as your first choice
    for basic office supplies as many of these brands are just as good as the brand name products but
    cost a fraction as much.

    Can’t wait to try this, as we’ve tried just about everything else. I’ve tried the awesome cleaner mentioned above,and have not had success with permanent removal of cat odors. Enzyme based cleaners seem to work the best, but Listerine works as a home remedy for a number of other things, so I can’t believe I haven’t thought of it before. Thanks Mikey!
    ps. for things that can go in the washing machine, I’ve recently discovered Prowash Activewear 2x liquid detergent, (designed to wash sweaty sports clothes, etc.) and it works better than anything I’ve ever used for cat urine odors.

      I also find that listerine works to keep mosquitoes away. I keep a spray bottle of it in my camper and spray all around the outside of it when camping.

    I guess everyone knows that this inappropriate peeing can be a sign of a urinary tract infection, right? Your cat might be in a lot of pain . . .

    Thanks for the tip. I have a large, 12 year-old female that uses the box for “solids”, but prefers to pee under my dining room table. I will definitely be trying this.

    I have a question t those with cat & litter box troubles, has the cat been de-clawed? If so u need to get a VERY fine litter. The coarse litter hurt their paws that’s one reason for them to go elsewhere.

    Great idea!
    May I ask what your cat to litter box ratio is?

    Get a black light and shine it over surfaces to reveal where cats/dogs have eliminated. A black light is available in a small, inexpensive size. Only enzymatic cleaner will remove the pheromone smell that an animal can, but you cannot detect.

    Great idea. I will give it a try. I have been using a drizzle of Harpic lime scale remover that I use for the toilet and swishing it around the litter tray. Wait until you see the white bubbles disappear, then add really warm water and leave to stand for an hour. Terrific.

    hmmmm wonder how it would freshen yarn that’s been sitting a long time? If it’s clear mouthwash, it wouldn’t stain it, right?

      If I was to try this on yarn…I would do a test first…specially if the mouthwash is colored…Wouldn’t want a white yarn turn into a greenish…blueish…red ish..yarn :O

    Thanks for this — I have one male rogue cat (neutered) who seems to like to go in the corner of my livingroom. I am going to be trying this ASAP!

    I used to use Zero Odor but it’s expensive. Then I tried vinegar. That works too but not quite as well as mouthwash. I’ve been using mouthwash for a couple of years now. No more stinky dog foot odor. For accidents, just pour on the spot, rub it in with a broom and lay newspaper over it to soak it up.

    Mikey, you can turn this into a sub-category of cleaning tips. I don’t think anyone would mind and who knows what everyone would share . . . thanks for this one…

    Do you think it would work on Dog odors as well? I have a little “old man” that marks at times.

    I’ll have to try this in my basement. Had 3 cats 2 years ago and I can still smell them!

    Great idea. Thanks for sharing. I lived with a toy poodle for a while & occasionally she would have an accident. Since I lived in a complex where there were cleanliness inspections I had to find a less expensive solution to cleaning her oops. White vinegar & water half & half works wonders. This mixture is also great for inside the car, camper etc. I use it for lots of things including my hair. It’s so shiny & clean. Just had to say…

    Thank you for this idea. I am going to try it. I have a one year old yorkiepoo that I can not get housebroke, so I need something.

    I pick up a lot of tips watching the show My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet. It seems my cat has to have the litter box cleaned every day or she will find a corner in the house. I also changed the brand of cat litter I was using. Those are two tips I picked up watching the show and it has helped. Thanks for the Scope tip!

    Thank you, I’m going to try this. I also have a cat that prefers not to use the box. My carpets are ruined but I can’t afford to replace them right now, so at least I can try to get rid of the odor.

    I must give this a try! My neutered “gentleman” cat sometimes forgets his manners and spray-marks a territory. This is the reason all my yarn is in plastic see-through containers. Thanks, Mikey!

    Thank you! I have two cats that like a certain corner of our gym room!
