Don't sell your house or throw out your carpet (or your pet) -- yet. Try this first.

On election day recently, my 15 y/o was volunteering, going door-to-door.  A puppy followed him, limping slightly, for almost a mile.  Long story short, he brought the puppy home -- and though we tried every means we could to find the puppy's home, no one claimed him (and yes, we resisted the temptation to call him Bark O'Bama).

It occurred to us that perhaps someone set him free, though -- he's been resistant to potty-training. So our family has become connoisseurs of pet odor removal products. And though the market leader (Nature's Miracle) is touted to "organically remove the odor," it does no such thing.

Earth Friendly Products'  Everyday Stain and Odor Removal isn't marketed just for pets -- but maybe it should be.  It's the only product we've tried (out of four) that doesn't just cover up the odor -- and also keeps it from reactivating any time a room is warm or there is more than 1% humidity in the air.   It is carried in the Kroger's and Safeway chains, and at Petco (but not PetSmart).  It retails for about $3.99 for 32 oz.

The manufacturer writes, "Using nature's way to remove stains and odors, is ideal for removing stains/odors due to Pet Accidents, Urine, Vomit, Blood, and Food and other natural waste by-products on dirty laundry, fabric, carpeting, tile, sealed wood floors, upholstery, and furniture. Safe for your pet, for you and the environment."  The product itself has a fairly pleasant orange/citrus-y scent -- so my guess is that orange oil is a key ingredient.  It's worth looking for.  I totally recommend it.

Hi Ali, My local King Soopers (Kroger's) sells the 32 oz. bottle for about $3.99. As far as it being "earth-friendly," I don't have the bottle in front of me -- but the website (which by the way calls it "Everyday Stain and Odor Remover") says, "Naturally based formula of enzymes and plant ingredients works well against removing organic laundry stains, fabric stains, carpet stains and odors caused by food, dirt, urine and other natural waste by-products." I know it has a definite orange/citrus-y smell, so I'm guessing it uses those oils as one of its active ingredients at least.

My poor Persian Minya was a people cat and she was left alone a great deal because of my job. She expressed herself the way cats frequently do. My vet sold a deoderizer that was very good. Can't vouch for the earth friendliness of it, and it was a bit expensive, but if you're desperate for a quick fix that really works try EQUALIZER.

Thanks for sharing this! Do you know what specifically makes this earth friendly, as opposed to other odor eliminators? Also, how much does a bottle cost, roughly? We have a cat but thank goodness she hardly has any accidents. Still, this seems like it'd be good to keep around.

I'm thinking Lunch.com is a pretty smart way to get recommendations -- and trying it out. I'm a writer, blogger, mom (3 kids, 3 dogs, 2 cats) who basically has a lot of fun and approaches life with a … more
