    So what's a good way to remove cat urine smell and other ickyness from soiled Studebaker parts and shop manuals?

    Somebody has been a really bad little pussy.....

    1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
    1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

        There is pet urine smell neutralizer, but I don't know which one is best. Ask a veterinarian.

            Good reason to have them on CD's................just toss them in the dishwasher.

              Twenty five years ago my cat upchucked on my '53-'58 Body Parts Catalog. Time heals all wounds.

                Get rid of the cat and replace the manual. That's one smell that doesn't go away easily.

                    I'm on the verge of buying one of these.

                    I'm not sure what size, but car detailers and hotels supposedly successfully use something similar to get the smoke smell out of hotel rooms and cars.
                    Tobacco smoke may not be as nasty as cat pee, but is a mighty pervasive nonetheless.

                      Cats are picky where they do their business. If you decide to buy new manuals, do not try to keep them clean. Mine are so covered with greasy hand marks, no cat would go near them. Heck, I get my own hands dirty just picking one up

                        You HAVE to be kidding me... how freakin' CASO can one get!?! The only possible other reason to try and salvage the old is that they are Stude originals with better quality pix.

                            My wife said try white vinegar. May get rid of that cat pee smell but, your manuals and parts will smell like a vinaigrette salad dressing.
