One topic that never gets old to pet parents is – odor and stain removal! Periodically I like to poll my pet friends to come up with a list of cleaners that really work. Here’s what they told me:
Once Jackson Galaxy mentioned Fizzion on his hit show, “My Cat From Hell,” Fizzion became an in-demand product. I’ve tried it and was very pleased with the results. Fizzion is non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
2. NOse Offense
Nose Offense is an odor neutralizer for air and fabrics. It’s completely natural, non-toxic and biodegradable. I’ve used this and found it to be terrific for zapping odors – pet and other types too! Note, this is not a stain remover. Check out a review of Nose Offense. Also, full disclosure. They are an advertiser but I stand by my recommendation, advertiser or not!
I’ve been a big fan of these products for a few years now. They really work and are non-toxic, biodegradable and sport recyclable packing. I’ve tried all of their products but frequently use the litter box spray and love it.
4. Anti Icky Poo
Once you hear the name Anti-Icky Poo, you never forget it. I’ve tried this product for carpets and it definitely “gets the stink out.” They claim the product works for all kinds of “icky” stuff, including vomit, feces, skunk spray and other gross stuff. Luckily, I’ve only had to use it for cat pee! But it’s often recommended by the experts. Anti-Icky Poo is not all-natural or toxic-free so it’s a good idea to keep your pets out of the area you are cleaning.
5. Bissell’s Ewww Enzymatic Cat Stain and Odor Remover
Of course, when one installs new carpet, that is when your pet decides to initiate it! Such was the case with our new basement carpet and Romeo. I had some Bissell Ewwww on hand and used it to clean up the pee smell and stain. It worked great! This product does not claim to be toxin free so make sure your pets aren’t nearby when you use this and make sure it’s completely dry before letting your sweet babies near the spot again.
6. X-O Plus Odor Neutralizer Spray for Dogs and Cats
I’ve never used this product but it was recommended to me by someone I trust! It’s a non-toxic odor neutralizer and cleaner.
7. Zero Odor
Zero Odor is getting a lot of accolades lately but I have not tried it…yet! It’s definitely on my list of solutions to try. But again, several trusted pet friends have raved about it. It’s only for eliminating odors; it’s not a stain remover.
8. Nature’s Miracle
Another frequently recommended product, Nature’s Miracle, has been a mainstay in the pet odor and stain remover department for a long time. I’ve tried this as well. In fact, I laundered a blanket that got “targeted” by a misbehaving cat with this and it worked great!
There you have it! Let me know if you have questions. And, friends, just because a product claims to be all-natural or non-toxic does not mean it’s okay for your pets to ingest or breathe. Keep all cleaners and odor removers away from your pet and never spray anything directly on them!
So, what did I miss? What do YOU find works great?
