If the cushions are removable, take off the outer covering and spray both the inside and outside of the cover. Next spray the cushion generously and work the product in like you would with a sponge.

When working with couches or recliners you may need to turn the chair or couch on its side and pull the mesh off the bottom. Sometimes the urine will run down the cracks of the couch and soak into the frame structure of the furniture.

Saturate a clean white towel with Odorcide 210 until it is damp. Take the wet towel and fold it up and place it directly on top of the contaminated area. As the moisture soaks into the wood it will give Odorcide 210 time to spread to the deeper parts inside the wood. Leave the towel on as long as possible (Ideally until the towel dries). However, every floor is different and you do not want to cause any added structural damage to the floor with the moisture from the towel, so check the towel about once an hour and use your own judgment to make sure the moisture from the towel is not doing any damage to the finish or surface of the floor.
Once again all floors are different and it is up to the consumer to use his own judgment as far as the length and moisture of the treatment goes.

Another way to apply Odorcide 210 is to buy a 1 or 2 gallon pump-up sprayer and spray onto the concrete. Or, you may puddle a good amount of diluted Odorcide 210 on the area.
Then take regular bath towels and saturate them with water so that they're dripping wet. Bunch the towels up into a ball and pack them over the area. What this will do is create a moisture barrier so that the Odorcide 210 will not evaporate. Also, as the concentrated moisture soaks into the concrete it will give Odorcide 210 a opportunity to penetrate deep into the concrete and get to the deepest core of the problem.
Allow the towels to stay there until they are dry. After they dry wait a week and the odors should be eliminated. With concrete it may take two applications.
