Frequently Asked Questions

Pet urine is composed of waste products including urea, uric acid, sodium chloride (salt), excess water and other waste. The immediate odor from pet urine comes from bacteria that feed on urine. Uric acid crystals (crystalized urine residue) often remain in porous surfaces, and will emit an “ammonia” odor with time. Humid conditions or wetting the surface can also reactivate the odor.

You can find stores near you that sell Clorox® Pet Urine Remover on our Where to Buy page. It's a good idea to call the store before going, to make sure they have it in stock. If you have any trouble finding it at a nearby store, you can also buy it online.

This product is designed for use on fibers and soft surfaces such as carpet, upholstered furniture, mattresses and bed linens. It is also specially designed to remove pet urine odors and stains and has a light fragrance which quickly dissipates. Our hydrogen-peroxide disinfectants are designed for disinfecting hard, nonporous surfaces.

Yes! This formula is optimal for organic (protein-based) stains. Protein-based stains include human stains such as blood, vomit, feces and semen. The product may also be used as a pretreatment step on sheets, pillowcases, towels and linens prior to a normal laundry wash. The pretreatment step will boost the removal of food stains such as gravy, spaghetti sauce, red wine and chocolate syrup during laundering.

This product is specialized for protein-based stains. It won’t work as well on soap scum, hard water and other types of bathroom stains. It is also not an EPA-registered disinfectant, which is often needed in restrooms.

No. Clorox® Pet Urine Remover is bleach-free and safe to use around pets.

GBCs won’t break down stubborn uric acid crystals (which create long-term odors and give off ammonia once re-wet).

Enzymes are created by bacteria to digest proteins found in urine. These bacteria (sometimes called ‘bugs’) are living organisms that essentially "eat’" uric acid crystals. The affected area must be hospitable to the bacteria in order for them to work — moist, not too hot  and must not come in contact with chemicals that kill bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down the proteins and microorganisms found in urine through oxidization to quickly address short-term and long-term smells. Our formula also includes surfactants and an acidic pH, which effectively removes urine stains.

Cleans urine stains better and faster on porous grout. Because we do not have constraints that enzyme-based cleaners do, we can include ingredients such as an oxygen-based bleaching agent (hydrogen peroxide), surfactants, a mild solvent (isopropyl alcohol) and an acidic pH.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the best products on the market to remove stains and odor form when you pets have an accident on your hard wood floors or carpets or any place they may have went potty. It removes the stain completely and the odor is gone for good. You usually need to wash it twice to completely get the odor all the way out. I have tried many other products and nothing compares to this!!! I am sold on the performance of this product and I swear by it now. If you haven't tried it, please won't regret it. It does the job!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing!!! This product is amazing!!! With a senior dog and two puppies, my carpet was done for in a matter of a week. I thought for sure that my only solution would be to replace the carpet. EVERYTHING (even mess stains) came out and my carpet looks good as new!! Super impressed and will always have this product on hand!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Works Bought a new home and discovered two corners that were used as litter boxes. The cat urine smell was overwhelming. Tried sealing the odor in with BIN sealer. It helped but the odor was still present. Clorox Pet Urine Remover eliminated the odor after two applications. Thanks Clorox for making a product that works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is Fabulous!!! I bought this At Walmart for the first time. I loved it! I have three dogs so there’s always a little problem. Now Walmart doesn’t carry it at any of their Grand Rapids area stores. It may say that it’s available, trust me it isn’t. Is there anywhere else to buy this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best spot cleaner ever! I have been renting a house for a year now and have two dogs. One of the dogs has (many) accidents upstairs on the light colored carpet. It had left many stains and a horrible smell. I had tried everything from a million types of foam cleaners to vinegar and nothing was helping whatsoever. I ran across Clorox urine remover at the grocery store and thought I would give it a try (it was only like $4.99). I sprayed the stains (which were months old) and waited like the directions said then wiped up with a wet towel and I can not even believe what my carpet looks like!!!! The stains and smell are both gone and my carpet looks brand new. I have recommended this product to all pet owners I know and I will never buy another product ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best odor remover We have 3 dogs . A chihuahua which she uses a puppy pad we have a 80lb male boxer who thinks it’s ok to mark his territory on the pad the chihuahua uses. Well since he is big when he does this it’s gets on the hallway carpet and steps! I have used EVERYTHING from expensive $20 dollar bottles of odor remover to $1 dollar bottles and NONE of them have worked. It lasts a day and the smell comes right back. My son recently got a Rottweiler puppy that’s 11 weeks old so obviously he has accidents in the house. I came across the Clorox Pet urine and odor remover on a website and thought why not try it I’ve tried everything else. Well let me tell ya STOP buying other stuff!! This is it !! The only thing that has not only taken the old stains off of my 13 year old carpet but also REMOVED the urine odor that I have been struggling to remove for years and the odor stayed away! I’ve even tried homemade concoctions ( vinegar and baking soda) that didn’t even work. I since bought a huge bottle of this at Lowe’s because well I’m never using anything else and of course with 3 dogs and kids we are definitely going to need it! Thank you Clorox please don’t EVER change this solution. It’s the best and the added bonus it’s affordable! Thank you again Clorox you have a forever customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! We recently purchased a home and the garage was a horrible smelly mess. Apparently the previous owners allowed their dogs to use the restroom in it. I have been dumping gallons ( yes I should buy stock at this point) on the floor. Each time the bubbly area gets smaller and smaller and the garage air is finally breathable! I am considering trying it on the floors when we pull up the carpet. I don't think it would hurt anything. Lol

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT, but... This product works well, but this is the second bottle I have purchased where the spray attachment has stopped functioning. I bout a two bottle set with only one sprayer, so I am not sure what can be done. Other than that. it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans without fumes, gentle on hands By mistake I bought a product by Arm and Hammer ( also a yellow container) and it is fumey and harsh. Fumes are long lasting. I purchased it at #Target by mistake. I use Clorox which labeled for pets. Not only are the fumes of Arm and Hammer harsh and they are hard to get rid of. It is also harsh on skin ( gloves are a good idea) . It is true that Clorox pet and stain remover is safe for pets, gentle on hands -no fumes. I have also used the Clorox pet product to safely remove makeup stains from clothing without issue. This Clorox item is a great product and #Target needs to carry it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I dog sit frequently and accidents tend to happen so I purchased this product and to my dismay it did not work. I used it on several different occasions just trying to test the product and give it the benefit of the doubt. Not only does my carpet still smell like urine but it seems that the smell got worse when I sprayed the product. I am a Clorox fax all the way when it comes to cleaning but this particular product gets a major thumbs down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from urine gone I have 3 dogs. One is 15 years old. He has a hard time controlling his bladder and tends to urinate in my house. This product not only cleaned up the mess, but left a fresh scent so that my house did not smell like bleach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Scent/Love my Cat I purchased this product a few days ago to clean up a mess from my cat on a wood floor. I sprayed the area with this product and followed the instructions on the bottle and it left a fresh clean scent behind. I was very pleased with the pressure from the spray bottle and I would definitely purchase this product again! Thank you Clorox!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst urine remover ever tried. Worthless product. These must be fake reviews because this stuff is garbage and does nothing for pet urine smell. Every area treated still smells like cat urine after it dries. It doesn't do anything at all. It doesn't neutralize or deodorize. Waste of money and time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If there was a -5 star option I'd choose it This is the worst product ever for animal mess stains. I threw the whole bottle in the garbage today. I used it once about 2 years ago on a spot and it still stinks. I threw the cleaner under the sink and promptly forgot about it. My husband found it today and used it on a stain. Got home and my whole house reeked. Do not buy this. Its completely terrible. Makes any stain way worse and the smell is worse than anything you could concoct in your worst nightmare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a “miracle” Have an elderly Chihuahua and 2 Yorkies who don’t always know where the edge of the pad is. I also foster dogs for different rescue groups, and you never know if they are truly “trained” or not. So we have pads on linoleum and hardwood floors and never could remove smell 100%. This Clorox spray DOES! And the light, fresh scent it leaves is so nice I’ve started to mop all of my floors with it! As others have said, it’s very reasonably priced. My only suggestion to Clorox would be to also make this available in large, refill-size bottles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this product I purchased this product when we were having a problem with a new cat urinating in our home. We all know cat urine is one thing that can be so hard to get rid of. In the past I have paid so much money for expensive pet store products that havent worked. THIS WORKS! I have never had a product work this well before! One time of cleaning the area with this spray and the odor is gone! I did not test this on fabric/carpet areas as my house is all hardwood so I do not know if it leaves bleach stains on fabric, but it removed the odor from porous materials such as the sandstone floor in my bathroom with just one cleaning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We have more than enough cats, and unfortunately our male decided in recent months, to start marking his territory. This stuff is AMAZING at getting rid of not only possible stains, but odor! I do wish the spray was finer, or covered a bit of a more targeted area, but it does its job as is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This works really well. The smell is not the best and the price is a little high Is the only reason this isnt five stars. It gets out stains and removes the odor perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is a LIVESAVER with my new puppy! She is poppy training and still pees inside especially on the carpet! This stuff easily gets it all out and doesnt leave the scent for them to potty in the same place! I highly recommend to any new pet parent!

A product I will continue to use.
