1. Before cleaning anything, make sure to soak up as much of the urine up as possible. You can either use newspaper or dry paper towels. The more you soak up the better it will be for the clean. Just place a thick layer of paper towels or newspapers down and just keep stepping on that specific spot to soak up the urine.

2. Keep stepping on the area multiple times until the area is barely damp

3. If you want to remove the smell, you can put vinegar onto a cloth and just blot it in the area. Let the vinegar dry out and the smell will eventually go away.
