- OK, so I got just back from the weekend skiing trip and did my usual thing by transferring my skis and boots from the car to the yard under the shelter. The idea was to bring them in for drying before putting them into longer term storage.
So guess what happens, my boot bag was still unzipped and the cat for some reason just went ahead and peed all over them. I didn't realize it till I brought them inside and the whole place was stinking bad - a bit like cats pee!
What do I do? new boots (liners?) how can I get rid of this awful scent! :
My little brother works for a restoration company. They do a lot of smoke damage restorations. They pretty much just put everything in a room and then blow in ozone. It takes a day or 2 but when it comes out the smoke smell is gone. Everything smells like ozone but it wheres off quickly. They also have portable machines that produce ozone. My other brother bought a used car that somebody had smoked in. We put in the ozone machine for a couple of days and the smell was gone. I would say clean your liners the best you can with soap and water then see if you can find a restoration company that may have something like this. I would say send them this way and I'll have my brother toss them in the ozone room but I just noticed your in Finland. Probably more to ship back and forth then it would be to get new liners.
Thanks for the insight in ozone usage UTPowder. As you said, I'm in Finland, so maybe I could send you the cat - one way delivery of course. Put it with the ozone machine, and no need to ship it back :-)
