Cleaning Question - re: Cat's Urine

HI, folks - I would like to know if anyone has any experience with cleaning cat urine off of the footbed of a Birkenstock sandal. I've tried lots of things, but the spot is still smelly & tacky to the touch.
Ideas?
Thanks!
Claire

you can go to most any grocery store and get the carpet cleaner designed to eliminate pet odors the odor will not go away immediately but should be gone in a day or so. i think direct sunlight also breaks down urine smell pretty fast

In 1987, while on a walk after dark, my husband and I were sprayed by a skunk. Yes, my leather shoes were saturated with the scent. My mother-in-law suggested that I spray the shoes with Lysol spray until they were wet, wrap them in a plastic garbage bag and put them in the freezer for several days, take them out let them thaw and dry. I followed her instructions, as crazy as they sounded and it worked beautifully

If water isn't a problem for the sandal then a wash in biological washing powder (laundry powder) should sort the problem. I have no idea what kind of sandal a Birkenstock is as I live in the UK - it could be anything from a tough rugged outdoor sandal to something nearly as girly as a Jimmy Choo!
