How Do You Remove Urine Smell From a Bathroom?

To remove urine smell from a bathroom, spray the toilet and surrounding surfaces with disinfectant, wipe it away, spray the same areas with odor eliminator, wipe it away, and use a toothbrush to clean the crevices. Flush vinegar to remove lingering urine smell from the pipes.

  1. Spray the surfaces with disinfectant

    Spray all the surfaces around the toilet and the toilet itself with extra-strength disinfectant. Make sure to spray the surfaces under the lid. Wait one to two minutes.

  2. Wipe the surfaces down

    While wearing gloves, use a clean, damp sponge to wipe the surfaces down. Rinse the sponge after every few wipes to keep it clean.

  3. Spray enzyme-based odor eliminator over the surfaces

    Select an enzyme-based odor eliminator, and spray it over all the surfaces and inside the toilet. Wait several minutes for the foam to set.

  4. Wipe away the odor eliminator

    Rinse your gloves and the sponge to avoid mixing chemicals. Use the damp sponge to wipe away the odor eliminator, rinsing the sponge frequently.

  5. Flush vinegar

    In case something inside the toilet is trapping the smell, flush 1 cup of vinegar down the toilet.

  6. Scrub hard to reach small areas

    Apply the odor eliminator to a toothbrush. Use the toothbrush to scrub around the toilet handle and any other crevices where urine might have collected. Rinse and re-apply the odor eliminator frequently.

  7. Rinse the crevices

    Use the damp sponge to wipe away residual traces of the odor eliminator from the handle and crevices of the toilet.
