Eliminate Dog Odour
Man’s best friend is not always the best friend to man’s nose! Especially when they take it upon themselves to roll in smelly things, get caught in the rain, or have an accident in the house.
Luckily, there are some simple ways that you can eliminate dog odour. The first step is to get some fresh air in the house. Often, over winter we keep the doors and windows shut more. So, throw them open and get some air circulating through.
For more stubborn odours, the Odorex range of safe and effective cleaning solutions can keep your dog smelling good and eliminate the smell of dog pee, poo or vomit from carpets, furniture, bedding, kennels, artificial grass and more!
Check out Odorex Animal Odour Eliminator which can be used as a deodoriser or air freshener on animals, beds, accidents, cages. For sanitising larger areas, Odorex Pet Cleanup Concentrate is ideal, and if you aren’t sure where the odour is coming from, the Odorex Pet Stain Detector is the perfect tool for the job.
Eliminate Cat Odour
If you have an indoor cat who uses a litter tray, here is a great tip for you. To extend the life of your litter, spray with a little Animal Odour Eliminator or if your cat pee's outside the litterbox, try Odorex Cat Odour Eliminator.
Sweet Smelling Pet Beds And Accessories
Pet beds are the perfect snuggling spot for your furry friends. But, they have a nasty habit of collecting a range of pet odours.
Like your home, the first step is to air them out. Some can be pegged on the washing line. If that’s not possible, pop them outside in the sun for natural deodorising.
If fresh air doesn’t do the trick or it’s a rainy spring day, then Our Odorex Dog Deodoriser is the perfect solution. Don’t forget to keep your pup sweet smelling all year round with Odorex Deodorising Pet Shampoo.
Dog toys, collars, blankets and towels, all these can start to smell overtime so take some time to through them all in the wash.
If they have labels, read them and wash accordingly and only use a small amount of detergent. Thoroughly rinse and air dry, make sure everything is perfectly dry before putting it away.
Use Odorex Pet Cleanup Concentrate in the rinse cycle to eliminate any doggy odour.
Time For A Groom?
For good coat maintenance, brushing your dog or cat is vital. It also helps remove dead skin and hair that could be contributing to pet odour in your house.
- Brush pets outside and at the same time check for any skin abnormalities and body condition. Check their ears and teeth and clean if necessary – these can both lead to animal odour if left unchecked.
- Odorex Deodorising Pet Shampoo can be used for both cats and dogs. It’s very effective for eliminating doggy odour but make sure you don’t wash your dog too often which can upset their skin balance and cause more odour. For in-between washes use Odorex Dog Deodoriser.
Sparkling Skirting Boards
Skirting boards have a nasty habit of collecting dust and pet damper. They are also one of those places that you don’t always remember to clean until there is a bit of a build up. A damp cloth will clear away any collections that have landed there.
If you have pets in the household, we recommend taking it one step further by using Animal Odour Eliminator spray when wiping your skirting boards with a damp cloth. While non-toxic and safe, it is a professional strength cleaning and deodorising spray that will leave your skirting boards smelling fresh and looking sparkling clean.
Don't Forget The Car
Your car can start to smell overtime if you transport your dog in it, especially if they have been wet in there.
Put on a moistened rubber glove on to remove pet hair from surfaces you can't vacuum! Or use a rubber squeegee for large areas. Run your gloved fingers over the surface to attract fur.
Keep a bottle of Odorex Dog Deodoriser in the car to keep it fresh smelling and in case your dog smells in something stinky whilst out and about.
