      The best pet odor eliminator is something that can get to the source of the odor at the molecular level and eliminate the molecules causing the odor. An enzymatic cleaner (like Angry Orange!) does this wonderfully by breaking the chemical bonds that make pet odors possible.

      Why should I use an enzyme cleaner?

      Both cat & dog pee are composed of things that need enzymes to break the chemical bonds! Traditional household cleaning products like vinegar, baking soda, soap, etc seem to work at first because they eliminate some of the components of your pet’s urine. But none of them can remove the uric acid! Uric acid isn’t water soluble and bonds tightly to any surface it gets on. In contact with humidity, the uric acid crystals left behind reform and the bad smell is released again. You might not feel it, but your pet does and that is why they always return to the same spot again and again. Enzymes are the only thing that can break down the uric acid to remove the smell forever. They break it into carbon dioxide and ammonia, that will evaporate easily. No more foul odors!
