Oh bother! I just went to iron the taffeta, in prep to make the ruffle, and it still smells like cat pee. *moo* Washing it in Ivory snow and rinsing in white vinegar apparently didn't work.

Any brilliant ideas beloved pin posse?

Another wise I guess my only options are to go to Potomac Mills or Richmond to see if I can find more of the fabric or going sans ruffle.

I want to cry.

Aw don't cry. I'd try two more things. Many pet stores carry urine smell removers so you could try one of those. And I've had good luck with fabreeze, admitedly not for cat pee but it's worked on some other pretty nasty ones (like kids' barf). Keeping my fingers crossed...

Thanks so much! It's just this on top of everything else. I never realized how stressful finding cat pee in multiple places a day could be...

Nature's Miracle. At the pet store. Test it first, because I haven't ever tried it on taffeta, but it saved the day for me!

Yes, that's what I use, too.

The best stuff I have found is OUT! Cat Spray & Urine Stain & Odor Remover. That stuff works wonders. Good luck. :)

wash it with you regular old degertant and oxy clean. It got the dog pee out of my white linen shirt!

Oh I probally don't want to do that, since Oxyclean has a bleaching agent in it! Thanks though!

Really? hmm...I've never had a problem with it and my brocades. (I get mud on everything!
:-) )

If you can't find something at a pet store, try asking your vet--at both the vet clinics I observed at, they had at least one chemical that was supposed to lift that persistant cat-pee smell. You have my sympathies! Nothing quite like that...smell... ;P

Yeah tell me about it! We've had a cat pee-ing for 2 weeks now... I think I smell it everywhere! It's made for a miserable week.

Thanks!

I know you'd have to wait for it to get to you, but if the pet store stuff doesn't work try this: http://www.fresh-again.com/pets.asp
