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.
For how can I give the King his place of worth above all else
when I spend my time striving to place the crown upon myself?

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Cat piss contains ammonia, so it will be hard to shift. The secret weapon is watered-down vinegar. 50/50 will do it, and white vinegar is best. The enzymes in the vinegar will neutralise the odour-producing ammonia in the cat piss. Of course, vinegar has a niff all of it's own, but it's easier to deal with than the stank of a leaking pussy. I can't vouch for what vinegar will do to your wood though.

I honestly thought this was going to be TS posting a video of him playing the bass part to some song called "Cat Urine" which I was totally unfamiliar with.

These answers amuse me the most.

If you took it apart and cleaned it it should be fine. If it got all up in the electronics where you can't/don't want to get to, take it somewhere and ask if they can finish cleaning, it shouldn't cost much if you've taken it mostly apart for them...unless the piss shorted something or something.

Try mixing your piss on it. It seems more brootal to have your own piss on it.
