Default How to remove urine odor (not stains) from LEATHER

hello all,

i've been reading many threads on this forum about removing cat urine odor, and i've also googled for lots of information, products and reviews elsewhere. but i'm still confused. so i will cut to the chase:

which is the most effective product to remove cat urine ODOR (not stains) from LEATHER COUCH. repeat LEATHER.

effective as in odor removed, thus stopping cat from urinating in same spot again, AND not ruining the leather material/color.

certain brands are mentioned repeatedly, and it's hard to decipher product reviews that range from one to five stars. products with great reviews may not apply to every situation. so i am narrowing it down and asking for specific experience with odor removal from leather only.

i have been using a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and liquid soap. cleaned it twice, but cat still returns to the same couch to pee.

any advice would be much appreciated. thanks!

The smell may not be the only reason he's peeing on it. Has he been checked to make sure it isn't medical? If that's the problem, cleaning isn't going to help.

baking soda SHOULD work. I don't know if vinegar would stain the leather but it would be the best cleaner, imo.

I have been using a product called SCOE 10x (Super Concentrated Odor Eliminator), which I found at the hardware store. I have had good luck with it in all kinds of situations, and the customer reviews online do mention that it works on suede furniture - see the link BioFOG SCOE 10X Odor Elimination Reviews from Customers. Maybe this will help your situation?

In the meantime you may want to cover your couch until you can control the peeing, Try a couple of cheap blue tarps - ugly yes but better than a pee soaked couch. It would be a big job but you may want to saddlesoap or use a leather conditioner to moisture proof the leather - do try a spot that can't be seen first to see if the leather dye is well sealed
