  • Need advice on how to clean windows and mirrors without using chemicals. I do recall listening to Shannon talking about this but can't remember what she suggested apart from water and vinegar.
    Many thanks in advance of your response.

      • Hi Shannon,
        My cat has been taken to acting oddly of late has been making her mark on my curtains. (After 8 years of perfect behaviour!)
        Is there a way to get the urine smell out without damaging the cotton velvet?
        Various websites have suggested washing with vinegar - but then I will have the problem of shrinkage :(
        (They also have an acrylic suede lining which is not removable).
        Any help would be greatly appreciated.

              • Hi Shannon, I missed your advice on removing cat urine smell and stains. I have a cat that apparently was not desexed properly when he wa done earlier in life. I had my vet check him out and he had a large testicle removed.(tumor size)He is now a much better cat but the smell of the urine lingers on. Carpet and Leather were his main targets. Would very much appreciate yuor help with this.

                Look forward to your response.

                Kindest regards
