I however, don’t live with dogs who are perfect and never get sick. They’re good, but accidents happen. And with white carpeting in some rooms, at times it isn’t pretty.
I was really excited when Clean+Green contacted me about taking a look at their eco-friendly stain and odor remover for pets. The stuff I was using was heavily fragranced, and I always hated pulling it out because I knew it couldn’t be good for me. If Clean+Green actually worked, I was going to be a lifelong convert.
How’d it do?
I’m now a lifelong convert.
Clean+Green Pet Cleaner
When I first read the packaging, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. Why? Because it said on there that you don’t have to scrub. At all.
All you do is just spray it on, and let it dissolve.
Yeah, right, I’m thinking. Like that’s REALLY going to work.
This next part is where I eat my words.
I waited almost two weeks for an accident to occur. Finally, thanks to my dog Gunther, the big day arrived. Pee on the curtain and carpet. Overnight.
I whipped out the Clean+Green, shook it up, sprayed it down, and walked away. I seriously didn’t think it was going to work. After all, the pee had been sitting there all night. On my white carpeting. Good luck.
When I went back a few hours later, I couldn’t believe what I was not seeing. The stain was gone. The smell was gone.
Like it never happened.
I’ve also now used it with a wine stain (worked like a charm) and two other pee stains (again, worked like a charm). In the spirit of full disclosure, I admit I haven’t used it on a BIG stain, like a poo stain. So, I can’t attest how it’s going to work with that.
But wine and pee, so far, have scored 100%. And, there is no scrubbing involved.
Why It’s Eco-Friendly
The cool thing about Clean+Green cleaners is that they’re all based on sugar cane and other natural ingredients. I would have liked to have seen a full list of what’s in there, but as it’s proprietary they don’t post it on their site.
It’s also safe to use because it’s non-carcinogenic, non-corrosive, non-toxic, and non-flammable. The cans, which are aerosol, are propelled by nitrogen, which occurs naturally in our atmosphere and is the safest way to propel liquids. And, you can recycle the container when it’s done.
I have to admit, I’m really impressed with this stuff. I’m amazed that it works without any scrubbing on my part. And, it doesn’t laden down the house with stuffy artificial fragrance.
My only complaint is that we can’t see everything that’s in the product itself. The list, taken from the Clean+Green site, is:
- Cane sugar derivatives
- Proprietary blend of botanical extracts
- Hydrated cellulose (cleaning agents)
- Purified water
I’d love to know what botanical extracts they’re using. But, I guess I’ll have to keep on being curious.
At any rate, if you need an eco-friendly cleaner for your pets, check out Clean+Green. It’s surprisingly affordable ($7.99 per can, right now), and some stores are starting to carry the line. They make cleaners for wood and tile, litter boxes, furniture, auto, and even a skunk remover.
