Frequently Asked Questions

Urine is composed of waste products including urea, uric acid, sodium chloride (salt), excess water and other waste. The immediate odor from 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® 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 to be safe for use on fibers and soft surfaces such as carpet, upholstered furniture, mattresses and bed linens. It is also specially designed to remove 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. It is also great for pet stains. 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.

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 Great Product My Husband has dementia ane is bedridden.. His urine has a bad odor, I bought this product to try.. It worked fantastic. No odor in his room at all. His bedding and clothing are sprayed with it before washing and his straps for his diaper are also sprayed. I have never found any product in 60 years of marriage that works this well.. I quickly ordered 2 more bottles.. I will keep on hand forever..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome I brought home a rescue pup who didn't understand the value of my wall to wall rugs..if not for this product I would need to replace at least $5000 worth of carpet! Sprayed it on just as directed and POOF! Stains set in for over a year were gone like magic! Some spots needed a second light spray, as stated on the package, but they too are all cleaned up! Can't rave about this enough! Thank You!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever I’ve used this past few years. I don’t understand the reviewer who claims to have used a UV light & saw no difference. Since I was seeking stains with a UV light & as soon as I sprayed it the stain disappeared. HOWEVER if you have previously cleaned a stain with anything else then the stain will still be seen under UV light. When I do not have this on hand I do use vinegar & water mixture which removes most of the stain & all of the smell - but personally I don’t like vinegar smell. This is the best product for carpet urine stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this yesterday at Lowes. I saw all the good reviews and just straight up bought the gallon size. This worked so well! I have an old dog that can't control his bladder and my house was starting to smell horrible despite me cleaning with everything under the sun (bleach, vinegar, floor cleaner, etc) I sprayed the solution all over the main area where they stay I and let it sit for about 10 minutes. After I mopped it up with some warm water and the smell was gone! I was so impressed. I used it on their dog bed as well before washing it and it took the smell off of there too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for cat urine! Love, love, love this product! Easy to use and best of all, it ELIMINATES the cat urine odor almost immediately! Please keep this product as is, don't ever change it... works great! I see you have one labeled Pet Urine Remover, haven't tired it, may be the same ingredients! However, the URINE REMOVER works for me! Again, please don't change your ingredients! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ABSOLUTE best! I bought this when our dog got sick. OMG! I wish I knew about it when she was potty training. I’ve purchased so many bottles of useless cleaners for pet messes it’s ridiculous. This product works everywhere without a problem and it works every time. I had some clothes that were messed on when caring for the dog, I sprayed this on and Voila! Clorox saved the day! I had to create an account in order to let you know how happy I am. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Overall Product! My cat and son simultaneously urinated all over my carpet, and with this urine remover, it was out in a jiffy! With other products you can't get the smell out but with Clorox, they always do it right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I recently purchased this as I have a new puppy. I had used other products in the past, not a real fan of them but needed something to address the issue. I was walking through Lowes and saw this on an end cap and decided to try it. I had a spot in the house that my new puppy was marking along with my male dog. I felt my house was beginning to smell like urine I used this product immediately when I came home. I cleaned the areas that had been used by my puppy and adult sag. Immediately I noticed the difference. I don't have the markings issues and my house does not smell like a large bathroom for dogs. I am so grateful. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best thing ever!!! I have 10 feral rescue cats. This product is not only the best for urine removal but also for feces removal and vomit removal. I have tried more products than I can recall and this is superb. I am already on my second bottle. I am recommending to everyone I know who has small children, cats or dogs. Please never stop making it!.
