Both cats and dogs may exhibit indoor urination behaviors to mark their territory, often targeting walls, furniture, or new objects. It’s crucial to address this behavior early on, ensuring it’s not related to a medical issue.

Cloves and soap

Establishing a routine or designated spaces for elimination can help, but if they persist in specific areas, a homemade solution may deter them from repeating the behavior.

Here’s a recipe to prevent indoor urination:


  • Cloves
  • High-quality multipurpose disinfectant with a lemon fragrance
  • Coconut detergent


  1. Prepare clove tea by adding 10 tablespoons of cloves to 200 ml of hot water. Let it infuse and cool.
  2. Pour 200 ml of the clove tea into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add 200 ml of lemon-scented multipurpose sanitizer to the bowl.
  4. Introduce 100 ml of coconut detergent to the mixture.
  5. Thoroughly mix the three ingredients in the bowl.
  6. Use a funnel to pour the solution into a clean, empty spray bottle.
