Pee and Fizz

Remember this pee machine with the innocent face?

Luke the pee machine
Yeah, Luke.

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.

Sam, Buddy & Merci guarding the carpet so it doesn't run away before Jan scrubs it.

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.

Jan likes the Fizzion.  The bottle comes with 2 tablets.  Each dissolves in 26 ounces of water and the fizz lasts a year.  She is halfway through the second bottle, so the product has been given a good testing.

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.

We were not paid for this review but we were provided with a bottle of Fizzion by EntirelyPets.com.  Any opinions expressed are our own.

  3. Jan
    mom has been using the fizzon on our wooden bathroom floor when the pee pad doesn't quiet catch it all, for some reason stella rose who can't see has a hard time distinguishing the pee pad from the floor AND she thinks the pee pad was put down so she can lay on it.....mom just always tells us her brain is wired a little differently than ours.

  18. Bowzers, we got tired just reading the post. You need some collies so they can scrub the carpet for you. At least Dad tells us that Lassie could do that. BOL
