You could try adding some vinegar to the wash water to neutralize the odor. I don't think you should use perfumed detergents or softener because the cats don't like the scent and may repee on the bedding. So try to use the unscented brands.

I have used two different product. One is called Kennel Odor Eliminator (KOE). The manufacturer site is http://www.thornell.com/pages/koe.html although it can be bought through several pet supply sites. The other product is PureAyre at http://www.pureayre.com/frameset_main.html which is also the manufacturers site.
Check to see if any of the urine got down to the mattress in which case you will need to pour some on that too.
Good luck, cat pee is intense stuff. In order to avoid this in the future try to figure out why he did it....or he may do it again. :(

Store the cat in a gallon-size zip-lock bag, in the freezer; and wash the bedding. Add some Nature's Miracle to the wash water. If the urine reached the mattress, spray the area with Nature's Miracle, turn the mattress over and draw out the solution with a wet vac.
Turn the mattress over and let it dry. Once everything is free of odor, remove the cat from the freezer--and from the zip-lock bag, if you so desire.
FYI, the Kennel Odor Eliminater that BonnieJean mentioned is a superior product, but I think Nature's Miracle will work better here, and it's available at PetsMart, etc.
Michael Whatever it takes.

You will need a specialist urine treatment. If you find the ones suggested hard to get then take a look at the link below, we have some specific odour removers, including urine, on the site. -- DrClean www.DrClean.co.uk The Best Fabric Cleaning Resource on the Web

I do hope someone has already suggested you pour copious amounts of Nature's Miracles all over the bed. I actually saved a couch from ruins. Read the directions. I promise there is no smell on the couch now but it did take time to work. Just read the directions on the bottle. Pricey but effective. aloha, Thunder

I used to use Nature's Miracle until discovering OxiClean.
OxiClean is not only *far* more effective, but also costs a small fraction of what Nature's Miracle costs.

When my dog has accidents on the bed and on the carpet I find the best thing to use is hydrogen peroxide. It kills the odor and removes the stain!

Right - Hydrogen peroxide is a "Per" bleach

The pet stores here sell something called Nature's Miracle that works well.
If it's a fresh stain, club soda is supposed to neutralize it.

Animals have a sense of smell that far exceeds ours. I would not assume that ANY home remedy will eliminate the odor. Just because you can't smell it means little. I would use either Natures Miracle or one of similar product on the market.

Check the ingredients in OxiClean and then the ingredients in the cheapest bleach for colors. Then decide which one to buy.

Instead of sodium percarbonate, some reputable brands of oxygen bleach use sodium perborate with additives. They have probably decided that this will give the customer more reliable results.
