Does Anyone know how to remove odor?

Comet is our youngest Hav. He is trained to urine on his reusable wee wee pad. If he goes outside he is trained to go on the synthetic grass we have in the back yard. I am having a tough time getting the odor down when washing the wee wee pads. Does anyone one uses specific products or home remedies? I read somewhere to use baking soda and vinegar. But I feel it doesn't bring the odor down. It still smells funky.

Mochi has perfected urinating outside only and occasionally going on the wee wee pad (in cases when it is pouring outside). Somehow Comet refuses to just go outside.

We used the fake grass for a very short period of time in Kodi's litter box, and had the same problem. I wasn't able to find ANYTHING that really killed the smell to the point that I could live with it.

I had washable pads and never noticed a oder. We use tide and I only washed the pads. I also put a dryer sheet in the dryer. I think the washable pads are good for young pups but I think mine got confused about rugs versus pads. I think next time I'm going to try the ugie? potty system ( cant remember what it is called) its grates and the texture is so different than anything in a house.

Maybe my nose is just too sensitive. Tide didn't touch it for me, with or without a dryer sheet!

I tried using Tide. But it smells really bad still. The odor is awful. Just now I put the pads in the wash and used a combination of Natures miracle, baking soda and oxy clean with fabric softener. And that did not work. Our synthetic grass has a bad odor in the summer but after it rains the odor is not as bad.

odormute. awesome stuff. you can make it whatever strength you need.

it's dry, (powder form) and you can put it in the wash, or add it to water (spray bottle) and make it whatever potency you need.

I had a cat years ago, any time I'd leave for the weekend, would knock pants or a shirt down from the bed post or chair and pee on it.

I tried all of the above, plus "pet odor removing" carpet cleaner (not even sure you should put that in a washing machine, but I did!) and nothing worked.
