Clean and Green Eliminates the Odors

You all know Tillie, right? She's just the prettiest, softest, sweetest cat around, and it's a good thing she is or she wouldn't be living here any more. See, Tillie is really picky. If her litter isn't absolutely perfect, she's likely to find somewhere else to pee. Sometimes it's the boot tray by the front door or the bath mat in the bathroom, both of which aren't a big deal to clean up, but sometimes she pees on the carpet. That is definitely not a good thing, and it means we need something to clean that cat urine smell out of the carpet. That's why I jumped at the chance to try this CLEAN + green Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner. Not only is it supposed to do a really good job cleaning and eliminating odors, but it's also an all natural, pet safe, eco-friendly product. I have been trying to use more natural cleaners around the house, mainly because chemicals and smells bother me quite a bit. The question always is: Do the natural cleaners work as well as the others?

With this product the answer is definitely yes. All you have to do is shake the can and spray it on the affected area. There's no scrubbing or rinsing required; just make sure the product comes in contact with the problem source and allow to dry. There is no added fragrance, just a pleasant natural smell which I really like. It works best when it's used right away, but I've also sprayed it on some old spots that I had used some other cleaner on. The other cleaner never completely took the smell away and left behind a scent of its own. This just seems to take the whole smell away, leaving nothing behind. An average 16 oz can provides about 20 regular applications. Mine didn't last quite that long, meaning I used more than I actually needed to, so I'll need to get some more of this soon and try not to use so much in the future. I wish Tillie would get her act together so that there was nothing to clean up in the first place, but now at least I know there's something that works.

In addition to the Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner, CLEAN + green sent me a can of the Litter Box Odor Eliminator which I hope will help Tillie want to use the litter box all the time, and a can of the Furniture Refresher which I haven't had to use yet, and I hope I don't have to, but I feel good knowing that I have it just in case.

CLEAN + green products can be purchased from the website or at many local pet stores. Besides cat products, they also have products for dogs, birds, and small animals.
