At least the box was empty at the time

I have a nice wooden jewelry box. Everyone loves it. In particular, my cat loved it, and marked it as his own. How do I clean the pee out, or is it doomed? I've tried wood cleaners, but honestly I am not terribly good at this, and it's been longer than it should have been.

Have you tried filling it with baking soda? (Better yet, fill it with baking soda, then put it in another container likewise filled with baking soda to get the outside.)

That's the only thing I've found that takes the smell out. For fabric, soaking in baking soda / water, but that's not really an option with wood.

I'd give that a try before you toss it. If that doesn't work, I'm not sure that anything will.

I'd give Nature's Miracle for wood floors a try if baking soda doesn't do it.

Shark Tank finally came in handy. This might do the trick.

Response by poster: I have had baking soda sitting in it for 10 days now. No help. (The outside is fine, so it didn't need that.) Next time I pick up cat food, I'll get the Nature's Miracle.
