Review: Simple Green Cat Pet Stain and Odor Remover
Simple Green Cat Pet Stain and Odor Remover
The makers of Simple Green bring us a super duper pet stain odor remover that is people and pet safe made with natural, non-toxic biodegradable ingredients.
For those of us that are cat owners, we know that our animals have accidents every now and then, some more than others. Whether they are kittens just trying to learn to use the litter box or older cats who are having physical or emotional issues, sometimes messes happen.
Often when an animal urinates on a rug or other location, they will continue to go back to the same area and use that location over and over simply because they can smell that they have gone there before. If you have other animals in your house, they may also begin peeing on the same area as a way of claiming territory. Either way, you can end up with a terrible mess and an even worse smell wafting throughout your home.
With Simple Green’s Cat Pet Stain and Odor Remover the smell isn’t just covered up or masked as often is the case with so called odor removers. Simple Green’s natural bacteria neutralizes the urine smell so cats don’t find the same location again.
I have 4 cats, 2 older, 2 younger and lately 1 of the older cats has been having a lot of peeing issues. To make a long story short we couldn’t get rid of his bladder infection as it turned out he was diabetic, so we were dealing with a whole lot of peeing throughout the house – especially on the rug and sofa cover in the family room. Because so much of the sofa cover had been urinated on we decided instead of spraying it to simply wash it in the Simple Green Cat Pet Stain and Odor Remover. Of course we ended up diluting the spray with the wash water, but we washed it on as low of a wash as possible and it did the trick. Simple Green Cat is also available in a gallon size bottle (along with the 32 oz spray bottle) to make things like adding it to your wash easy if it’s necessary.
To clean the sofa itself, I added the Simple Green to the upholstery shampoo and used my carpet shampooer to clean it followed by another spraying of the Simple Green Cat once the area had dried.
These treatments successfully kept my Quantico from going back to the same area and urinating there again. In the meantime, since we now knew Quanitco was having health issues, we were able to get more testing done until we learned he was diabetic and have been able to get him help.
So in the long run, while it’s important to have a good odor remover like Simple Green Cat – it’s also important to remember your pet is peeing where he or she is for a reason. While Simple Green Cat takes care of the smell and prevents further urination in specific areas, it’s even more important to find out what is causing the problem in the first place so you can give your animal the help he or she needs.
Simple Green Cat is available through the website or at your local Petsmart.
