  • Sounds a little strange but I would try some natures miracle it has natural enzymes that eat the bacteria that causes the smell. You can get it at the pet stores. I use it on my carpets after an animal uses it as a potty.

  • I mix a little bleach with a lot of water, however someone recently sent me an e-mail about using peroxide. It sanitizes and doesn't have the harsh smell like bleach does. As soon as I run out of the bleach and water, I am going to try peroxide and water. That urine smell is embarrassing when you have guests.

  • Nature's miracle, or even vinegar.

  • We had this when we moved into our new apartment. I mopped with bleach/water and within a couple times the smell was gone.
