Remember this pee machine with the innocent face?
|Luke the pee machine|
While he was here he kept Jan busy. This house is old so the floors aren't flat and his pee would immediately run downhill and under the area carpet. So when she had an opportunity for a giveaway (Throw the Dinner Roll), she asked us to choose Fizzion pet stain and odor remover, and we promised we would also do a review of the product. But Jan wanted to wait till the pee machine left and she could tackle the smelly carpet. There are 8 of us so it always gets a real workout with vomit - and then there was baby Luke.

One day last week Jan suddenly dragged everything off the carpet, vacuumed it, rolled it in half and vacuumed the underside half. We lined up to watch. She used a rag and her foot to wash the wood floor. (A string mop would have made the wood too wet.) Then on hands and knees she scrubbed the back half of the carpet. Between her sweating and mumbling, it was entertaining.
After the first half dried, she did the same for the other half.
Meanwhile, she took all the mats outside, scrubbed them and laid them out on the porch to dry in the sun.
Pee-u! Do those mats stink. But they always have. Guess we should have warned Jan to take a good sniff before buying them.
When dry, she sprayed the mats and the carpet with Fizzion.
The next day she vacuumed again, and then scrubbed the top of the carpet and when it was dry, she sprayed it with Fizzion too. She ran out of energy to finish the wood floor around the carpet and the kitchen. They can wait for another day; at least they were spot cleaned at the time. In this heat and humidity (yes, indoors), the carpet was the biggest odor concern. Oh, and the litter boxes. So she started spraying them after cleaning and before adding litter.
She has also been doing some spot cleaning and thinks the product works well. There were a couple of stubborn stains in the carpet. She sprayed them with Fizzion and used a dry scrub brush on them.
It is not an enzymatic cleaner. It is non toxic (contains baking soda, citric acid, oxidizers, and cleaning agent) so it should not be harmful to your pets if they come in contact with it. There is more information on the Fizzion FAQ page and if you have a question on the product, you can ask Dr. Fizz.
Fizzion can be purchased at Entirely Pets.
