How To Make Your House Not Smell Like Cat
Here are some tips for getting rid of their smell once and for all.
Remove Any Old Cat Litter
The cat litter box is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to house odor.
Your cat’s litter box is full of urine and feces, which, over time, will begin to stink up your home.
Not only will it make your house smell horrible, but it could also be damaging your health.
To keep your house smelling clean and fresh, you must remove any old cat litter from your home.
The first step is to empty the litter box completely. If there’s any litter in the bottom of the box, scoop it out.
Then, throw the old litter away.
Once you’ve done that, you can then fill the litter box up with fresh cat litter.
Clean Your Cat’s Fur
To clean your cat’s fur, you must first wash your cat in a tub of warm water.
When you’re washing your cat, make sure to use a shampoo that’s safe for your pet.
After you’ve washed your cat, rinse her thoroughly with fresh water.
Then, pat your cat dry.
Use a towel or paper towel to gently rub your cat’s fur.
Use a dry towel to brush your cat’s hair.
Finally, apply a coat of conditioner to your cat’s fur.
Repeat this process every week to ensure that your cat’s fur stays clean and free from dirt and debris.
Vacuum Your Carpet
As you know, cats shed hair everywhere. This includes the carpet in your home.
You can clean your carpet by vacuuming it. You should vacuum at least once a week to ensure that your carpet is clean.
It’s important to vacuum upholstery because cat hair gets stuck in the fibers. This will prevent your carpet from smelling clean and will also cause your furniture to become stained.
If you have a thick carpet, you may need to use a shampoo with an enzyme to help break down the hair and remove it.
Clean Your Furniture
Cats have a unique way of marking their territory by leaving urine on furniture. If this happens to you, it’s time to clean your furniture.
You can clean your furniture by using a mild cleaner. Make sure you follow the instructions on the label so that you don’t damage the finish of your furniture.
If you have a stain on your furniture, you may need to use a stronger cleaner to get rid of it.
You can use a cleaning solution or bleach.
Be careful when using bleach because it can cause severe damage to your furniture if used incorrectly.
Another stain remover can be the good old baking soda.
Baking soda absorbs odors, so using it on any cat pee stains would work wonders.
Blankets and Cat Beds
Washing your cat’s bedding and blankets is an important step in making your house smell better. Wash any blankets and cat beds in hot water. Make sure to wash your cat’s bedding on a regular basis.
This is especially important if anyone in your house has allergies or asthma.
Make sure to use a detergent that is safe for cats. If you have allergies, try using a hypoallergenic detergent.
Freshen The Air
Finally, freshen the air in your home by using a deodorizing air freshener. You can use a natural deodorizer or a commercial deodorizer.
However, you must make sure that you only use a deodorizer that’s safe for cats.
If you don’t want to use air fresheners, you can also place a few drops of essential oils into a bowl of water.
In conclusion, I’d like to make sure you understand that this is not a joke. The fact is that cats have a very strong smell. And we all know that our houses can become filled with cat smells over time.
