Clorox® Urine Remover

By Dr. Laundry December 4, 2014

I’ll admit it — when I was given the chance to do a home test of new Clorox® Urine Remover, I was super excited! It was perfect timing, too, since our 13½-year-old yellow lab, Bella, recently had an “accident” on our TV room carpet. Like many other dog owners with a senior dog, I know that we are her forever family and we’re there for her, even when it means cleaning up her little piddle puddles. 

So how well does the product work?

It’s great! The formula breaks down urine to remove odors and stains, and is suitable for most hard surfaces, as well as washable soft surfaces. For carpet or upholstery, if the stain is fresh, first you blot away as much liquid as you can with a clean dry cloth. Next, you spray the product on the stain, wait 3 minutes, and then wipe the treated area with a clean damp cloth. I actually blotted this stain at the time of the accident and it looked like it would be OK, but a few days later the carpet was pretty badly discolored. Here’s a picture of the carpet before:


 And here’s how the carpet looks after the treated area has been air-dried:


You can see why I am thrilled with this product! And while it isn’t for use on leather or silk, it does work on most upholstery, rugs, carpets and even mattresses. You can even use it as a laundry pre-treater for dog blankets before they go in the clothes washer. Want more information? You can learn more here.
