If you're a pet parent, chances are you've dealt with your fair share of accidents. Whether you’re potty training a new puppy, dealing with a territorial kitty, or have an older companion who can’t always make it to the toilet on time, a pet urine eliminator can help keep your house smelling like home. Aside from lingering, tear-inducing odors, pet urine can also leave stubborn stains on carpets, rugs, and upholstery. Depending on your furbaby’s preferred problem area, you might want to consider a pet urine eliminator that also takes care of stains. While some pet urine eliminators simply have a deodorizing effect, others remove both stains and odors. Enzymatic formulations excel at eliminating both stains and smells by feeding off odor-causing bacteria before drying up and disintegrating. However, not all pet urine eliminators are suitable for every surface, so remember to check the usage indications before buying. (See our review on enzymatic cleaners for more information.)
