    cat pee and the SE - how do I get the smell out?

    My cats rarely express interest in my TB bags, but last weekend my new-ish deep blue SE was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it steeped in cat pee. For two days. (Our poor kitty is very sick, so tending to him has taken precedent over washing my bag and its contents.) It's now sitting in a sink, waiting to be washed, but I'm kind of at a loss.

    I was thinking of letting it soak in a bath of vinegar water for a day and then washing with mild detergent, but I'm guessing that's not going to cut it. Does my SE even stand a chance? Has anyone ever fought this battle and won? Or should I throw it out and cut my losses? (I don't want to give up THAT easily, but I'm pretty easily grossed out and the idea of even a speck of urine residue remaining on my bag is just too gross for me.)

    My dog hiked his leg on Briggs & Riley. I wiped it off and then wiped it again with a damp cloth. I then used several applications of a product called Furry Freshness to remove the smell. Worked like a charm.

    I'm so sorry to hear your kitty is sick!

    We've heard from folks that MiraZyme works on cat pee but this is a good opportunity to really put it to the test! If you're up for it, send us a note to emailus@tombihn.com and we can send you a bottle. Let us know how it works so we'll know whether we can confidently recommend it in the future

    I had a similar situation - nature's miracle worked when nothing else would. I added 32oz to water in the bathtub, let it soak, and then let it air dry. No smell anymore.

    We used a product called odo-ban (sometimes also called odor-ban) it's meant for ostomy bags, so it's definitely up to the task. It's kind of pricey though and it has a smell of it's own.

    Mirazyme does work for this sort of issue, the one time I had to test that... :/ Just soak in a Mirazyme and water solution per the directions and let it dry without rinsing. I think I may have let the item soak for an extended time to be on the safe side.

    If you still have any lingering odor you can try spraying it with vodka put into a spray bottle. Or soak in vodka if it's really bad, then rinse.

    Thanks for all the tips! I'm going to try the Mirazyme that TB has so graciously mailed out to me and report back on its effectiveness. If it doesn't work, I'll definitely give these other tips a try!

    Well, I tried the MiraZyme twice, but sadly my SE still reeks. Iím grateful to the TB crew for letting me give it a go, though. It was probably a long shot from the get go since it soaked in urine for a couple days. But now that itís been two weeks since the incident and the urine is still set in, Iím afraid that the bag is a goner. Such a shame for such a good bag! And with all the money we put into kittyís vet care, itíll probably be awhile before I replace it...

    If anyone has tried any of the other methods above on very set-in stains, let me know? Iím going out of town this week for work but might try another route.

    I haven’t tried it on fabric but I have used Nature’s Miracle on cat pee that somehow got under the litter box and soaked into the grout on a tile floor and it really helped. It was in a red spray bottle and may have been the Extra Strength or the Extreme version. I use it all the time
    now for cleaning the bathroom we keep the litter box in and it’s made a world of difference!

    Natureís Miracle does seem to be the crowd favorite and not terribly pricey, so Iíll give that a shot next week before giving up!

    Napalm. It's the only way to be sure.
