    If it wasn't for bad luck I would have none at all!!!!! I had to pick out dog Nikki up from the groomers yesterday. She does not like to ride. When I was almost home I witnessed a pretty bad collision. I pulled over and got out of my truck. Nikki was sitting on the floor of the truck on the passenger side. Now this is my custom truck. It has bucket seats and a console. I told her to stay and be good HOPING she would not pee on the floor. My other truck she did that in when I turned my back because she gets way too bervous sitting in a vehicle by herself. So anyways I went to check on th ewelfare of the peole involved in the wreck, got ahold of the sheriff, etc. When the personnel arived I went back to my truck to check on Nikki. She was sitting in the same place. A sheriff had me fill out a witness report so I sit in the truck, filled it out, got out and thought "what the hell?" the back of my pants were wet. That little #$%& got up into my seat and pee'd and then got back down on the floor. I could not even get her to sit in the seat when we were going to the groomers. I took towels and soaked up as much as I could and used some Resolve carpet spot cleaner and then put a small fan on it to dry it. But I have to say my truck smells terrible!!!!!!! Does anyone know of anything that will neutralize the urine odor? I really hate to take the seat out and dismantle it to wash it, if there is something to neutralize or kill the smell. I don't want to mask it but would prefer to get rid of it. But today is another day so I wonder what bad luck is in store for today also. LOL!!! Thanks all.

    Kevin, test an unobtrusive spot out for colorfastness first with any cleaner, of course. First, put down a good layer of old fashioned 20 Muleteam Borax and let it sit in a sunny spot with the doors open for an afternoon, then vacuum it out well. Then try one of the oxygen based upholstery cleaners (several people have had really good luck with the one Woolite makes), following the label directions. Make sure you let it dry very thoroughly and check for odor.

    If it still smells, there is a product called Odor Ban that you can usually find at Lowes or Sam's Club that does a real number on odors. You could also give Febreeze a try after the cleaning. I've found it really does a good job on a lot of things. I even had to Febreeze the dogs late one night after they came in skunky - but that's a story in another post. :eek: NOTE: I don't recommend Febreezing your dog with any regularity; it was an act of desperation . . . and they haven't gotten into skunk again either!

    I just used to use oxyclean for those accidents at home but we now we have wood so cleaning just a matter of picking it up.

    someone suggested "natures miracle" before, though I haven't tried it. It uses enzymes to break down the germs so in theory it should work well. It is usually sold in pet stores. Hope this helps :)
