How to get the pee smell out?

When I cleaned all my tack a few weeks ago, I noticed that my gelding's lead rope had a -very- strong apple-pee smell to it... At first I couldn't figure out why, and then I realized/remembered that when I put my horses in the yard, I sometimes leave their halters on and toss the leads over their backs... and, of course, the leads tends to slide from the horses backs to the ground and are drug along behind/beside the horses...

Apparently, my gelding had/has peed on his lead...

I washed his his really good with dish soap and water and really, really scrubbed... it got some of the pee smell out, but not all of it... It got enough out that I couldn't smell it unless I held the lead up really close to my face... but now that's it's been a few weeks, the smell is coming back... and I'm positive that my boy hasn't peed on his lead again because I haven't put him out and left it on him again.

How do I get the pee smell out once and for all!?

Try buying a thing of Natures Miracle and soaking the lead in it for an hour or so, then rinsing it out. Natures Miracle is made for people to get the pee smell out of carpets when their house pets have accidents. You can get it at most big pet stores and some grocery stores. Here's a link so you can see what it is: Nature's Miracle - Home.

If you want to go the cheap route, try the same thing in a bowl of white vinegar. (Of course, then you'll have a vinegar smell, but washing it in something else afterward should cancel out the worst of it.)

Don't use anything ammonia based....that will just make it worse.

Buy a new one, probably? Lol!

You can soak it in water with the detergent or shampoo (with nice smell) for couple hours, and then washed it thru. That usually helps me with the cat pee. :)

Thanks guys...

I'll try soaking it in a nice smelling shampoo first, then if that doesn't work I'll either get something made for getting the smell out or buy another lead... Lol...

Try "Urine Off"
I work at a petstore, and that's the newest product and all our costumers have been saying Urine off is better than Natures Miracle.

And also, Natures Miracle was bought out by "Petastic" so if you want the real "Natures Miracle" formula, buy "Petastic" its the exact same price

You can also try vinegar. I have used it for cat urine before...Just soak it in the vinegar the vinegar smell will fade out and you won't smell the pee either..Or you can soak it then a few days later wash it...

Febreeze it
works for me

I'm also going to try the vinegar, if the shampoo doesn't work... I'm kinda looking for things I can find around the house because I really don't want to buy something that I'll probably only use once...

I'm allergic to Fabreeze, but I may end up trying it anyway...

Throw it in the washing machine with horse towels, etc. Let hang to dry!
