Help! Cat wee on doormat. Do I use bio or non-bio to wash it?

My neutered male cat has wee'd on our (thankfully) machine washable doormat. However I can't remember if it's bio or non-bio that I should use to deter him from doing it again. TIA

Actually - even if it's washable I'd throw it away. Ours is neutered and after weeing on our washable may, no matter what we did - he continued to 'go' there until we got rid...something about a habit??

Thank you and if that doesn't work I'll be washing the cat next

You could try putting vinegar on it too after it is washed as this prevents them from weeing/spraying in the same place

On the same vein ...

Y'know that coconut matting stuff that people have in their porch ... well our it is in the hall ( as he connecting door was removed ) ... anyway our famle cat wee'd on it .... how do I stop her doing it again ? And how do I get rid of the smell ?

I cannot wash it as it cannot be removed.

Any help... sorry to hijack

wash the cat in non bio and throw the mat out

The mat itself has a waterproof backing but as an extra I've sprinkled neutradol carpet freshener and hoovered. Maybe thats worth a go?
