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.

Reviews from real customers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING! Got rid of the smell of old urine I am so unbelievably happy with this product that I had to create an account to review it. Elderly relative had an accident and the room smelt so bad, nothing got rid of it. I tried vinegar, baking soda and washing liquid. I was beginning to lose my mind and considered getting a professional cleaner. I got this and it worked instantly, no smell anymore! Thank you so much. NEGATIVE - the spray nozzle did not work when I got the product so I had to tip it out on the carpet which was a shame hence the 4 stars. 100000% recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product I have tried I bought this because I have been happy with other Clorox products. I am amazed at how well this works. Threw the other products away as I no longer will need them. This product did everything I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Product My sweet elderly dog developed a terrible infection. Her urine had a very strong odor and she had significant difficulty controlling her evacuations. I tried pet store products and carpet products nothing worked. Clorox Urine Remover neutralized the odors and removed stains. I could not believe that it worked that well. I don’t know how it works but it is the only product on the market that did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat stain/odor My cat had a problem with urinating in the corner by my front door. Come to find out, the previous owners had a cat that urinated there and it was not cleaned up properly. I used this product and completely elimated the odor and on the plus side my cat no longer urinates in the corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will be your new bestfriend. Dear Clorox, this product is legit. I have tried to convince my friends and family...well really any household with males about this product, and not one person has heard of it. I really wish it wasn't so hard to find, I live in Columbus, Ohio and have a hard time finding it. In addition to, I have looked in hardware and grocery stores in Canal Winchester, Lancaster, and Athens with issues. I'm currently on the hunt to find a couple of bottles to send to my sister who lives in the Athens area with a household of 4 males.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clorox Urine Remover I stumbled across this while doing spring cleaning. A product from clorox is the best I thought. So I bought it and it is the best. No perfume smells. Just simply takes away dog urine stains and cat urine smell. Little boy pee smells too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works excellent Found this product at Homedepot. I have the pet variation of this particular spray as well. (The all yellow bottle) and originally when I saw this I just assumed it was the same thing as the pet urine remover until further inspection, I realized it's for more than just pets. I have 4 cats so they can be a mess at times, i'd recommend this spray for cleaning pet messes over the remover that's solely just for pet urine because the universal spray seems to be a lot stronger at removing those odors and stains. I've used it on our hardwood floors as well as in the bathroom. Highly recommend this product and will continue to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the product, Hate the sprayer I use this every day in my house as I have several cats. It works great! But the spray bottle is horrible. It works well until you refill it, then it doesn’t spray any more. I’ve told people to buy it in the jug and put it in their own sprayer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Urine Remover Works! This product works very well. My grandma is very old and this helps clean up any accidents so that it stays clean, disinfected, and not with an after smell. Sorry if it's too much information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the ONLY thing that works! I absolutely love this. I can’t find it anywhere so I’m really upset. I have a bunch of rescue dogs who are really old and so they don’t make it outside to potty sometimes. They completely ruined my bedroom floor from wall to wall pretty much with accidents. I tried so many cleaners but this is the ONLY ONE that actually allowed me to take back my room. You spray it on the floor and watch it foam where the accidents are and then clean it up. The smell is ok and smells awesome once dried. I understand that covid s probably caused the company to amp up production for bleach and all but I need this. Hope you have a safe and healthy year, T

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best Urine remover I have found after trying 5 I have a dog that has frequent urine accidents and sometimes there has been blood in the urine. This cleaner is excellent. Spraying on the area within 10 minutes the area is no longer visible. I also use it in my Shark sonic duo as an overall cleaner for the area he frequents. I have tried many other products, some much more expensive, but this is the best. The only drawback is the spray bottle. I bought the gallon refills after testing the first time with just the spray bottle. For the first gallon, the spray bottle worked great and used the entire bottle and covered very nicely. However, after that, the bottle stopped working properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product I've ever used for urine. I have a couple of small dogs that are getting old. When I work all day, they sometimes can't hold their urine till I get back to let them go outside. Clorox urine remover not only cleans thoroughly, but actually deters them from peeing in the same spot. I use it on my vinyl sheet flooring and also on the one couch my dogs are allowed to sit on. The smell is clean but not overpowering. I LOVE this stuff! I also really like the new bottle that gets every last drop into the spray mechanism. Kudos on a great product all the way around! Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best thing for cat urine! I can not say enough great things about this product. My cat was very sick and going outside her litterbox. This worked great for the smell and cleaned up wonderfully, even on the first try! It smells great compared to other products on the market. I won't ever use anything else! A must have if you own pets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on grout! Love this product! Only one that says can be used on grout. Have been using for last 2 years and definitely recommemd it though it's not on store shelves lately. It's probably due to the pandemic. I found it on Amazon but the prices are much higher than what I've paid in the local stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works great. I had to use it when I was working at a Legion, cleaning bathrooms, urinals and kitchens. This stuff worked great at removing grime and dried pee and it smells better than regular bleach. I'd recommend this product if you want to use a better smelling bleach and something that really cleans what you're needing to clean.
