The easiest way to remove the urine liquid is to put some white flour powder on the urine. As you apply the powdery flower on the urine, it will observe the liquid out of it. Then, you can easily clean the white flowers off the floor.

At this point, you’ll have to use a scrubbing brush to scrub on the spot where the urine has been spilled. So, scrub on the spot for about 5 minutes until you see the urine stain clearing out of the tile grouts.
