It’s impossible to stop a cat from going someplace, whether it’s into your garden or on top of your favourite pillow. However, their strong noses may be an ally in keeping them out of specific places.


To deter cats, use full-strength white vinegar or dilute it with water. If full-strength vinegar may harm items or plants, dilute it with one or two parts water before using it as a deterrent. Experiment with various intensities to discover the one that uses the least amount of vinegar while still repelling the cats you want to keep away.

Spraying Outdoors

To keep cats away, spray straight or diluted vinegar along the borders of a garden, as well as on plants, fences, posts, and garden décor. Concentrate the spray on places where the cats congregate or that you wish to keep safe. Vinegar may be sprayed at the base of acid-loving plants without harm, but it should be checked for safety before spraying directly on leaves. Some plants are unaffected by vinegar, while others may turn brown. Before spraying vinegar on painted surfaces or garden décor, examine an inconspicuous area for fading or damage. To keep cats away, spray every few days or as required. After rain or irrigation, the areas will most likely need to be treated again.

Spraying Indoors

Inside the house, vinegar may be sprayed to keep an indoor cat away from specific places or surfaces. Limit spraying to particular locations and use the least concentrated combination that is effective. Before using the vinegar spray on textiles, try it on a small area to be sure it won’t bleach or stain your sofas, carpets, draperies, or other furniture. First, test on wood and other surfaces. To keep the cat at bay, spray the area well once a week or as required. Indoor spaces will need less frequent spraying than outside ones.

If spraying isn’t an option, soak a cloth, sponge, or newspaper in white vinegar and place it in an area where cats aren’t welcome. This works great for plants that don’t like being sprayed with vinegar, both inside and out. To keep the rag wet and prevent any vinegar from seeping into the soil or onto other surfaces, put it in a small plastic container.
