How to remove urine from car seats?Updated 5 months ago

😖 Urine smell in your car?

Car seats are often made of foam and if pet or human urine has penetrated the surface material of the seats, urine will often be absorbed by the foam to a certain depth depending on the amount of urine discharged. 

🌟 Our tips

  • The key to any successful remediation is that wherever the urine has gone, urineFREE must go too. urineFREE must make contact with all the urine to be 100% effective.
  • Sometimes only one application is required but more often on old urine deposits, several applications may be required.
  • Not just on car seats: sometimes you think the urine is only in the seats but we have found if cats have been transported, especially males, cat urine can be sprayed into the panels and even down the air conditioning ducting. After treating a vehicle, turn on the air conditioning. If you can't smell urine you’ve probably got it all. If you can still smell it, check out other areas you may suspect.
  • Leather seats: some cars can be tricky to clean especially if they have leather upholstery as most cleaning products aren’t suitable for leather. urineFREE is a water based bio-enzymatic formula, however water is no friend of leather so we recommend that you test for colourfastness in an inconspicuous area before trying to treat urine stain or odour with urineFREE.

🔦 How to detect urine stains

  • urineFREE must make contact with all the urine inside the car to be 100% effective, however the source of the urine problem can be difficult to trace.
  • Our Urine Detector is an effective way to make sure you’ve got all the surface stains inside the car, such as panels, air conditioning vents etc.  
  • Using LED light technology, similar to the technology used by police forensic officers, the pocket-size torch will fluorescent dried urine in a darkened car, making it easy to identify and treat the right area. 
  • Then, after treatment, use the Urine Detector again to check that you have removed it all.

💦 Prevent future urine (and other) stains from ruining your car seats

We recommend using a non-toxic fabric protector like protectME to stain proof all your fabrics, upholstery, carpets and rugs around the house, including car seats. protectME is a very efficient and safe product, unlike other “mainstream” fabric protectors which are formulated with toxic chemicals.
