How to get a urine smell off leather furniture

Leather -- a material made from the hide of animals -- is durable and typically easy to clean. Urine -- from both humans and pets -- can create stains and odour on your leather furniture. If the urine is removed immediately with a damp cloth, no odours or stains should develop. If the urine dries on the leather furniture, the risk of stains and odours increases.

  1. Blot fresh urine off the leather furniture using several paper towels until no more urine can be absorbed.

  2. Dampen a lint-free cloth with cool water. Wipe the leather furniture with the cloth. Allow the leather to air dry. Continue with the remaining steps if the odour persists.

  3. Fill a small container with equal parts cool water and white vinegar. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth in the mixture.

  4. Wipe the leather furniture with the damp cloth. Vinegar is an all-natural cleaner and deodoriser that will remove tough odours such as urine. Allow the vinegar to sit on the leather for 10 minutes.

  5. Wipe the leather clean with a damp cloth. Remove excess moisture from the leather by wiping with a towel. Allow the leather to air dry.

  6. Apply a leather cleaning and conditioner to a clean, lint-free cloth. Buff the leather furniture with the damp cloth. Allow to air dry.
