Cat Urine on a Bass
 
So I let my friend borrow one of my basses for almost a year's time because he wanted to use it in a band he was starting. I thought "sure why not" because I didn't ever use that bass anyways. Well, the friend that he lives with has cats. That pee on everything. So when I got my bass back (still haven't gotten the case) there was encrusted urine on the body of the bass. So instead of killing my friend, I'm just gonna clean it off. So far I took off all the strings and pickups, and sprayed/wiped down the whole thing with Lysol (lots of it). After the Lysol fully dries I'm gonna wipe it down with water/baby wipes and when that dries wipe it down one more time with a dry towel. So, I don't really know why I'm starting this thread. I guess I just want you guys to tell me that I didn't just totally ruin my bass forever by cleaning it and that this will get the cat urine looks and smell off of it.

WOW way to ruin your bass forever by cleaning it. Jesus, dude.

Holy block of text, Batman. I don't know the chemical properties of cat piss, but I assume that if your bass has a finish then nothing bad will happen to it.

Tell your friend to piss off

obviously your 'friend' is not worthy of your kindness if he didn't keep your bass in its case whenever he wasn't using it.

Dried cat pee get that flake look, you could add some sand to it or something.

Beat your friend with the cat.

Leave the cat urine. Get a black light. Be smelly, but cool.

best thing to clean cat piss off is dog piss. because dogs eat cats. it makes sense.

I hope you didn't use Lysol on the fretboard? Unless it's a maple one.

Rawshik 11-20-2012 08:06 AM

I pretty much had to do it everywhere. I'd guess that the fretboard is maple because it's the same color n' stuff but it's a cheaper instrument so I can't say for sure.

Shit! Now It Won't Work!!!! D: D: D:

But then you have to clean to dog piss off with man piss, because men train dogs.

If it's maple coloured then it's almost certainly maple, and therefore lacquered :)
