How to Get Cat Urine Odor Off a Microfiber Couch

Cat urine has a strong, offensive odor that can be difficult to remove. If you notice cat urine on your microfiber couch, you need to remove it immediately or it can soak down deep into the cushion. The longer cat urine sits on the couch, the more difficult it will be to remove the odor. The cat may even continue to urinate on the couch due to the smell.


Step 1

Blot the fresh urine stain with paper towels. Avoid pressing too hard on the urine or it will soak deeper into the fabric. Blot the urine until the paper towels no longer absorb it.

Step 2

Fill a clean spray bottle with white distilled vinegar. Spray the vinegar on the urine stain. Vinegar acts as a natural deodorizer, and it will neutralize the odor.

Step 3

Let the vinegar sit for 30 minutes. Blot the couch with paper towels to absorb any excess vinegar.

Step 4

Cover the urine area with baking soda. Allow the baking soda to sit on the microfiber couch overnight. It will absorb any lingering vinegar and it will help remove the urine odor.

Step 5

Remove the baking soda by vacuuming it with a hand-held vacuum cleaner.

Step 6

Wipe the area on the couch with a damp washcloth. Repeat the process if the odor lingers on the couch.
