How to remove urine odour from synthetic grass

Updated February 21, 2017

Synthetic grass can add a green element to your home's decor and it will never die or require any care. Your dog may get confused, however, and decide to urinate in the planters of synthetic grass around or in your home. You can remove this smell with products you may already have in your home. If you have synthetic grass on your lawn it is even simpler to remove the smell of urine as synthetic grass will have a drainage system.

Synthetic lawns

  1. Keep track of where your dog urinates. This will help you pinpoint where the smells are actually coming from.

  2. Turn your hose on and point the nozzle in the direction of the areas of the synthetic grass that have urine on them. The water will rinse off urine residue and push it through the drainage system so that it doesn't make your lawn smell.

  3. Water the lawn for several minutes. Repeat the process if the smell is still noticeable.

Synthetic grass planters

  1. Mix 237 ml (1 cup) white vinegar and 237 ml (1 cup) water. White vinegar naturally neutralises odours.

  2. Pour the solution into a spray bottle.

  3. Spray the white vinegar solution over the grass in the planters. Let the solution dry on the plants until the smell is gone. Repeat the process if the smell still lingers.

  4. Tip

    Some synthetic grass lawns have zeolite crystals in them that actually absorb bad odours.
