I have a slight odor problem

Silly me I left my windows open overnight like i have done many nights in the past however this time a cat decided it wanted to jump in and pee inside. I have already steam cleaned the entire interior of my jeep and still every now and then ill get a whiff, I have already threw out my front floor mats and narrowed it to the passenger side hump but what can i use? I'm going to re steam clean the passenger side tomorrow first and hope for the best.

Lots of air freshener. Idk it may be permanent. Mine has a permanent odor that's a mix of; Jeep smells, burnt grasses, and muddy water/mildew. (from when it was sunk in a mud pit). The smells never really go away
You could try baking soda all over the places you think the cat peed, then maybe vacuum it up? I've heard baking soda neutralizes odor.

It's been years since I have had a pet but my old vet used Odoban at his clinic .

I asked him why it smelled so good there and that was his answer .

So I bought some and used it around the house years ago and it worked pretty darn good .

A bleach/ water mix in a spray bottle works wonders. I can't for the life of me remember the exact ratio I have used in the past. If you Google it I'm sure you can find a good ratio that won't ruin the carpet. Mice got into the interior of my old zj, sprayed it where the nest was, a little scrubbing and the smell was gone.

X, if you are talking to me, then maybe buy some and spray the headliner and carpet and see what you got in a day or so .

Did you see all the testimonials ?

It looks like a lot of people swear by it .

All I know is it worked well for me on general stank in my house .

Lol,a PEEJAY. Seriously the pee is an organic compound and professional carpet cleaners have chemicals that actually break down those compounds. I'll ask the dude that does the carpets where I work. You might also check at a lowes for a line of cleaners made by a company called ZEP.

I run a Cleaning and Restoration company. Most of the off the shelf products don't work very well, depending on how severe the issue is. I would clean the area as thoroughly as possible, the more you can remove the better. Is it a specific area? You may call a local carpet cleaning company and see if they have something to treat the area after you clean it. There are some products that contain enzymes that break down the urine after cleaning, and also an encapsulant that will keep the odor from being released from the material.

Cat urine is disgusting...

Edit: Every time you clean it with an extraction tool (steam cleaner) the contamanant will wick up the fiber as it dries so it will probably take several separate cleanings

Its not that bad anymore I just have a super good sense of smell like quite litterally I have to stick my nose to the passenger side hump to smell it so its driveable again.
