Puppies can make some huge messes, but accidents happen!
Of course, the pros of raising a puppy definitely outweigh the cons. They're cute, bring you joy, and just truly light up your world every second your home with them. Unfortunately, you're not always home with them. Whether you've got a professional escape artist or a puppy who hasn't quite figured out the whole potty training thing, it doesn't always pay to have a puppy. Pet stains smell horrible, we all know this. Carpet cleaning can be expensive and fresh scents only temporarily mask the smell. To prevent further cat pee, dog pee, and feces odor, keep an enzyme cleaner in your pantry with the rest of your cleaning products.
Enzymatic cleaners are stain removers and odor eliminators. Sometimes disinfectant spray, warm water, and DIY soap can't tackle urine smells, so it's best to find a formula with non-toxic enzymes made to tackle pet urine. Many formulas are safe for upholstery, carpeting, and hardwood floors. For the best odor removers, see our list.
Pet Enzyme Cleaners
This enzyme cleaner works as a pre-wash stain treatment. If you want to save a stained rug, you'll love this formula.
Erin gave it five stars and wrote, "Y'all, just buy this stuff. I've been trying to get puppy stains out our rental's carpets for a LONG time. I even tried a bleach mix. These photos were taken a half hour apart. The directions recommend spraying the stain and letting it sit for 10 min before wiping with a cloth. When I came back after 10 min, I couldn't even tell where I needed to wipe because the stains were already gone!"
Take care of those organic stains immediately with Simple Solution's odor remover. It's a 3-in-1 sprayer. Use the mister for surface stains, foam for embedded stains, and stream for odor control. Whether you've got a puppy peeing or a cat throwing up foam, this cleaner makes sure to stop the stink before it ever starts.
You'll definitely be able to forgive your pet the second they have an accident if you've got a cleaner like this one. Keep this spray bottle around, and you'll be able to clean up stains instantly. As a bonus, it's plant based!
This odor fighter works on concrete as well! Have a patio or garage that needs cleaning? Check out this odor control. Perfect for outdoor kennels or garages that had a bit too much puppy time.
This formula is safe for litter boxes, kennels, or just about anywhere your pet resides. It even has a great orange scent to it, which helps you feel like you've at least done something about the problem.
You'll love this formula from Emmy's Best. Customer reviews give you all the reassurance you need to make sure you're buying a great formula for tough stains.
Maybe you're over the house training phase, but sometimes dogs get really excited and just go. Pet owners, be proactive and keep an enzyme cleaner in your home.
