Clearing Fresh Stains
Fresh urine stains can be treated with a water and vinegar solution. Simply wash the urine with water and wipe it off with a washing cloth or paper towel. Mix white vinegar and water in equal proportions and apply the solution to the affected area as well as a few inches around it. Finally wipe with a rag or paper towel and let it air dry.

Cleaning Older, Stubborn Stains
If the stains are old and stubborn, some additional work will be required. Firstly, cover the affected area with paper towels.

Spray Hydrogen Peroxide
Now take a spray bottle, fill it with hydrogen peroxide solution and spray it generously over the paper towels so they are completely soaked. Now let the soaked paper towels stay in place for several hours.
If the paper towels start drying up quickly, spray them again and keep them wet for at least 4 hours.
Sprinkle Absorbent Powder
After a few hours, remove the paper towels and dry your flooring with absorbent powder material. Using cat litter or baking soda works best in such an instance, and will not only dry up your wood flooring but also absorb the prevalent odor.
We recommend: ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda
After your floor has dried up, you can simply clean up the cat litter or baking soda and let the flooring air dry. While you may see some mild stains at the time, they should fade as the flooring dries.
If any stubborn stains still remain, you can repeat the process again to remove them completely.
Always ensure your safety when dealing with chemicals used for cleaning. Make sure you are wearing gloves and appropriate eye protection to prevent any harm from splashes.
